Steelers | May not pursue Beanie Wells

Mon, 18 Mar 2013 12:06:48 -0700

Free-agent RB Beanie Wells (Cardinals) passed the physical he took with the Pittsburgh Steelers, but his knee injury is bad enough that it would be a risk if the team signed him.

Fantasy Tip: Wells' knee injury appears to be a concern for several teams because he has not received a lot of interest since being released by the Arizona Cardinals. He probably will have to accept a backup role with his new team, which would not make him a good fantasy option.

Cardinals | Will release Beanie Wells

Mon, 11 Mar 2013 13:03:38 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Beanie Wells said on his Twitter page that he will be released by the Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Wells likely will not get a starting job next season, so he will be the No. 2 running back for some team. The Cardinals likely will give Ryan Williams more touches in 2013 but likely will also look to add a running back to team up with Williams.

Sun, 09 Dec 2012 07:40:13 -0800

Cardinals | Beanie Wells questionable

Fri, 07 Dec 2012 14:17:27 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Beanie Wells (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 7, and is questionable for Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Wells should be expected to play, but keep a close eye on his status on Sunday. LaRod Stephens-Howling hasn't been on the injury report the last two weeks, but he received only one carry in a sloppy affair last week against the Jets. Expect him to get some more work mixing in with Wells. However, they are both risky flex options.

Cardinals | Beanie Wells questionable

Fri, 30 Nov 2012 13:19:15 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Beanie Wells (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 30, and is questionable for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: The fact that Wells practiced this week is a good sign that he hasn't encountered a setback. Expect Arizona to mix in LaRod Stephens-Howling, though, until Wells' stamina is completely back. Wells and LSH are more of flex plays in Week 13.

I just take it for what it is. I've been practicing for two weeks, I'm feeling good and getting a lot of reps," Wells said.

Cardinals | Beanie Wells will come off IR

Mon, 19 Nov 2012 10:21:33 -0800

Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt said the team will activate RB Beanie Wells (toe) from the Injured Reserve/Designated to Return list and expect him to play Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: If you're searching for running back depth at this stage, Wells may have been accumulating dust on your waiver wire. While Wells is expected to take over as the lead back, LaRod Stephens-Howling has performed admirably and will likely split the load with Wells, at least initially upon his return.

Cardinals | Beanie Wells placed on IR/Designated to Return list

Wed, 26 Sep 2012 13:12:44 -0700

The Arizona Cardinals have placed RB Beanie Wells (toe) on the Injured Reserve/Designated to return list. The earliest Wells could return is Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan Williams likely will be the team's main rusher with Wells out for at least eight weeks. Owners should look to add Williams if he is available in their league. Williams should be considered as a No. 2 running back or flex option until Wells returns. LaRod Stephens-Howling probably will also receive more carries and could be a name to monitor over the next few weeks.
