Rashard Mendenhall: Recapping Mendenhall's Week 8 Fantasy Performance

RotoWireContributor October 28, 2013

After missing practice all week with a toe injury, Mendenhall was inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Much to his chagrin, his back-up Andre Ellington had a bigger day in this game than Mendenhall has had in all his games combined this year.
The rumors of Ellington supplanting Mendenhall have been in circulation for a while and this week may just have been the final nail in Mendenhall's coffin. With a bye in Week 9, he'll get plenty of extra time off to heal, but there's still no guarantee that, if he's healthy, he'll even start against Houston in Week 10.
