Fantasy Football Advice:
Rashard Mendenhall is now a low-mid RB-2 play with Ellington out of the mix. The two have been in a time share for most of the season, Sunday, but in a 40-11 win over the Indianapolis Colts, Mendenhall had arguably his best game since Week 1, rushing for 54 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries. He also caught one pass for 24 yards.
Mendenhall will look to score for a third game in a row when the Cards face the Eagles and their 16th-ranked run defense that’s giving up 117 rushing yards per game. Mendenhall said he’s been feeling good the last few weeks, and his head coach agrees:
"“This is the Rashard Mendenhall I know,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said after last week’s win over the Colts. “Rashard looked like himself. He looked healthy like he did back in training camp. I was really glad to see that, and no better time.”"
