Beanie will be back, but do you start him?

If you drafted Beanie Wells to be your No. 2 fantasy runner this season, chances are you’ve been scrambling to find alternative options. The Ohio State product has missed the first two games with a bum knee, leaving Tim Hightower to be the Cardinals’ featured back.

There is some light at the end of the tunnel, though, as coach Ken Whisenhunt has confirmed to the team’s official website that Wells will play in Week 3, barring setbacks. How much he actually plays against the Raiders is still up in the air.

With that said, it’s hard to trust as more than a low-end flex starter until we know he’s going to see enough touches to produce. Hightower remains the better fantasy option and should be active in most leagues against the Raiders, who field one of the NFL’s weaker run defenses.
