Wells, Hightower are fantasy risks in Week 11

Darren Urban of the Cardinals official website posted on his Twitter page that coach Ken Whisenhunt hasn’t decided who will start in his backfield against the Chiefs in Week 11.

Beanie Wells (knee) was able to practice on Thursday and appears set to make his return, but Tim Hightower is also in the mix. Unfortunately, the confusion over this situation makes both backs hard to gauge in fantasy football. Wells has more upside, but injuries have stunted his overall value.

Right now, neither back should be used as more than a flex starter in larger leagues until we find out how the carries are split. Hopefully, one of them will emerge in the next few weeks — the Cardinals backs have great matchups in the fantasy postseason.
