Arizona Cardinals running back LaRod Stephens-Howling is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals running back LaRod Stephens-Howling is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills. Stephens-Howling is dealing with a hip injury. He was limited in practice on Wednesday but practiced fully on Thursday and Friday.

Stephens-Howling will be splitting carries with William Powell after Ryan Williams and Beanie Wells went down with injury.

Fantasy Impact: LaRod Stephens-Howling cannot handle the featured role, but he will still get some carries while Beanie Wells is out of the lineup. In addition to workload concerns, Stephens-Howling will be running behind one of the worst lines in the NFL.

The Bills present a decent matchup for the Arizona running game, but Stephens-Howling is no more than a desperate play.
