FANTASY FOOTBALL ISSUES: CARDS RB RYAN WILLIAMS DONE FOR SEASON, BEANIE WELLS FRONT AND CENTER

It was a rough night for Arizona Cardinals rookie RB Ryan Williams who tore his patellar tendon in his knee during the team's preseason game.  Williams will have surgery on the knee and be done for the season.  This marks the second potentially prominent fantasy football rookie running back who is done for he year on the heels of the Detroit Lions' Mikel LeShoure also hitting IR.  So this is obviously a death blow to Williams' fantasy football value and he should be dropped in all leagues. 

The flip side of this is the fact that Beanie Wells will now get the lion's share of carries for the Cardinals this season and so he has a chance to improve on his disastrous 2010 campaign.  Wells is entering his third season and its now or never time for the former first round pick.  Based on the fact he will get most of the team's work out of the backfield makes Wells a must own fanatsy football commodity but one who should not be anything more than a bench guy until he proves otherwise.  Wells doesnt catch the football so he wont help much in PPR leagues but those in TD heavy formats should surely make the add if he is free.  Opportunity means potential and Wells fits that category right now.  Whether he can do anything with it is up to him.  I wouldnt hold your breath.
