After an up-and-down rookie season, Beanie Wells took a step back in 2010 and paralyzed fantasy owners who invested an early round pick on him. He rushed for just 397 yards and two touchdowns in an injury-shortened season.
Before the 2011 season, fantasy owners were again skeptical when evaluating Beanie. Though many took the risk hoping to reap the benefits of Beanie being the feature back in Arizona.
Despite missing a game-and-a-half, he has rushed for 506 yards and seven touchdowns. He has had knee troubles in 2011 and has publicly stated that it will likely bother him the remainder of the season, but does not expect to miss any action.
The one downside to Beanie's game is that he is not a threat in the passing game, which can hinder his fantasy impact if he cannot find running lanes.
Fantasy owners shouldn't have to worry about his pass-catching ability this Sunday since Beanie and the Cardinals will have a field day against the Rams, a team that boasts the worst rush defense in the NFL.
