Cardinals have a new starting running back
Kerwynn Williams began this week on the Cardinalsí practice squad, imitating the actions of Chiefs star running back Jamaal Charles on the scout team. Williams, a little-known second-year running back out of Utah State, had 100 yards on the first 19 carries of his NFL career, helping the Cardinals to a 17-14 victory over the Chiefs.(AZCardinals.com)
FF Today's Take:Head coach Bruce Arians stated earlier in the week that Stephan Taylor would get the start which was misleading. Williams started an operated as the main runner in the Cardinals victory. Michael Bush was released in order to bring Williams up from the practice squad. With Andre Ellington out for the year, Williams will can be picked up by running back needy owners.
Ellington out with hip pointer, Taylor to start-- Fri Dec 5 6:00 pm --
Ellington misses third straight practice
The Arizona Cardinals will be without starting running back Andre Ellington against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. The second-year back will miss the game because of a hip pointer suffered last weekend in Atlanta. Without Ellington in the lineup, the Cardinals will start Stepfan Taylor, coach Bruce Arians said. Marion Grice and fullback Robert Hughes, who didn't play an offensive snap against the Falcons, will fill out the backfield rotation.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Taylor has been named the starter but head coach Bruce Arians gave a response about playing the committee "by ear". Expected and Grice to see a fair amount of work. The uncertainty makes this a fantasy situation to avoid.
