Ryan Williams is probable for Week 3 against the Eagles. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals RB Ryan Williams (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Willliams is still recovering from tearing a patellar tendon last season, and it shows -- he has 18 carries, 22 yards and two lost fumbles through two games. He got a full practice Friday after being limited earlier in the week.

Fantasy Impact: The limited practices were more of a precaution, and Williams is expected to suit up. How effective he'll be is an entirely different question. The Eagles defense is a tough test for young rushers, as Trent Richardson can attest. Williams belongs on the waiver wire in 10- and 12-team leagues.
