Beanie Wells is active. We break down the fantasy implications.

Beanie Wells (hamstring) will be active for the Cardinals against the divisional-rival Seahawks.

Analysis: Beanie popped up on the injury report this week with his hamstring injury. Oddly enough, Wells dealt with knee injuries in the preseason, so while it wasn't a surprise to see the oft-injured back from Ohio State, the hamstring was a new injury. Beanie has no business starting against the Seahawks for owners in standard fantasy leagues. Meanwhile, it should be interesting to see how the Cardinals will use Ryan Williams in this time share. We should have a little better idea on how the Cardinals will use these backs and both players should still be owned in the vast majority of leagues. Williams should also be on the bench for fantasy too.
