Rashard Mendenhall: Recapping Mendenhall's Week 16 Fantasy Performance

RotoWireContributor December 23, 2013

Mendenhall carried the ball 21 times for 63 yards and ran in a late-game two-point conversion against the Seahawks on Sunday. The Cardinals saw Seattle's weakness as coming against the run and not the pass and between Mendenhall, Andre Ellington and Carson Palmer and Stepfan Taylor, they ran the ball 43 times in this game.
Mendenhall's yardage total hasn't been strong this season but he did have five touchdowns over his last five games before entering this contest. While it's tough to be a big fan of his, you have to admit that he's done good work in maintaining his job as the Cardinals' lead back this season.
