With rookie running back Ryan Williams potentially out for the season with a right knee injury it’s time to assess Beanie Wells’ fantasy value.
Analysis: With Tim Hightower now on the Redskins roster and Ryan Williams potentially gone for the season, Beanie Wells just may put up RB2 numbers this year. Still, it’s hard to trust Wells considering his dismal 3.4 yards per carry average last year on just 116 carries. Wells has not carried the ball 200 times in a season in his young career and he offers next to nothing in the reception department for PPR leagues. However, there is not a back nearly as talented as Wells on the roster and a potential 1,000 rushing yard season is likely. Considering there is a threat of an air attack this year in Arizona, there will not be eight men in the box as much as there was last year for their offense. Beanie will also have a monopoly on the goal line carries and that could mean a double digit touchdown season. It’s hard to trust Beanie at this point but if he can stay healthy he can put up RB2 numbers and you can get him at his respectable ADP in the 75-85 range.
