Cardinals | HC talks up Rashard Mendenhall
Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians praised RB Rashard Mendenhall Wednesday, March 13, just one day after the free-agent was signed. "As a running back he's the total package," Arians said. "He's a big, strong every-down back with speed who can pass block and also catch the ball. I've said before: he's a big man with little-people feet, meaning he can run like he's 180 (pounds) but also pound the ball like he's 230."
Fantasy Tip: Mendenhall will still need to go through offseason workouts and the preseason battling Ryan Williams for the starting job. Arians has familiarity with Mendenhall from their days together with the Pittsburgh Steelers, but the head coach also likes Williams and his potential, and both are Virginia Tech alumnae. It appears Arians is quite happy with his stable of runners, and a split in carries is likely, at least initially. Both are considered low-end RB2s or flex fantasy options for the time being.
