Arizona Cardinals running back Ryan Williams is expecting five to 10 more carries a game now that Beanie Wells has been placed on injured reserve. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals running back Ryan Williams says he expects about five to 10 more carries a game now that Beanie Wells has been placed on the injured reserve. Williams says (via The Arizona Republic) that he will now probably be on the field about 15 to 20 more plays a game. Williams started the first game of the season for the Cardinals, who face the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Williams is a more valuable commodity heading into Week 4 now that Wells isn't there to share carries. Williams had 13 carries for 83 yards last week against Philadelphia and could seen more chances this week. Fantasy owners should consider him a low-end No. 2 running back or strong flex play this week against Miami.
