Arizona Cardinals running back Beanie Wells is hoping to get into Sunday's game with New England a little earlier than he did in Week 1. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals running back Beanie Wells doesn't want to wait for his playing time in Week 2. Wells didn't get into last weekend's win over Seattle until the second quarter and finished with just 14 yards on seven carries. He says (via the Arizona Republic) there was no rhythm in Week 1 and that his style of play isn't "sitting and watching." Wells split carries with Ryan Williams, who had 9 yards on eight carries. Arizona plays the New England Patriots in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: Neither Wells nor Williams made much of a case for playing time in Week 1 and they both should have a limited impact this weekend as well. Fantasy owners should look at them both only as a No. 3 running back or flex option at best.
