Ryan Williams led the Cardinals with 83 yards on 13 carries during Sunday's game against the Eagles. We break down the fantasy implications.

Ryan Williams rushed for 83 yards on 13 carries during Sunday's game between the Arizona Cardinals and the Philadelphia Eagles. He also caught one pass for 12 yards on two targets. Beanie Wells was given eight carries, but managed just 18 yards in the win.

Fantasy Impact: After rushing for a combined 22 yards over the first two games of the season, Williams broke loose Sunday and may have wrapped up a feature role within the Cardinals' offense. Wells struggled mightily before leaving the game with a toe injury, and hadn't been that productive even when healthy. Neither back is a clear-cut fantasy starter in standard-scoring leagues, but Williams appears to be the better bet going forward.
