Arizona Cardinals running back Beanie Wells is expected to start on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Beanie Wells is expected to start at running back for the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, according to beat writer Darren Urban. Wells is returning from knee surgery but is listed as the No. 1 running back on the team's depth chart ahead of Ryan Williams.

Fantasy Impact: Wells is the top back in an offense that isn't very good. Williams, at times, looked strong in the preseason but Wells should get a few more chances to carry the ball on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. Wells, who did rush for more than 1,000 yards last season, is a No. 3 fantasy RB this week. Williams should be treated more like a fringe No. 3/4 running back.
