Beanie Wells is probable for Week 3 against the Eagles. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals RB Beanie Wells (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. It's unknown if it's the same knee that was operated on in the offseason, but Wells got a full week of practice in and should be ready to suit up. He has struggled after two games, gaining only 58 yards on 21 attempts for 2.8 YPC.

Fantasy Impact: With Ryan Williams playing even worse, Wells will still be getting the majority of carries, but the Cardinals' running game has been miserable so far. Things won't get any easier against the Eagles defense. Keep him on the bench this week.
