Factoid: Isiah Pacheco

The season is days away, and I notice that the opener includes a couple of players of particular importance to me. Isiah Pacheco and David Montgomery are the two running backs that I feel are the most undervalued in fantasy drafts. Those guys are key to my championship hopes.   more »


Factoid: James Conner

I get nervous selecting running backs from bad teams. If a team or offense is truly putrid, how often is it going to get anywhere close to the end zone? And with that in mind, how good can a running back like James Conner be?   more »


Factoid: Dameon Pierce

I like Dameon Pierce. I understand that he was held back last year by having a lesser cast around him. But I also recognize that teams change.   more »


Factoid: James Conner

We've expressed some negative feelings regarding Arizona this season. They've shed a lot of talent since the end of last year; more all the time, with the release of DeAndre Hopkins. Kyler Murray may not be healthy at the start of the season. Is there value in this offense?  more »


Factoid: Bad team backs

I always get nervous selecting running backs from lousy teams – like James Conner, Cam Akers and Rachaad White this year. Those guys are starters who should get plenty of touches, but can they overcome the crappy situations around them?   more »



Arizona releases RB Benjamin

In a surprise move, the Arizona Cardinals released backup running back ENO BENJAMIN on Monday. The Cardinals will now turn to rookie KEAONTAY INGRAM as the backup, with JAMES CONNER remainingMore in the starting role. The other two backs who began the year on the roster, DARREL WILLIAMS and JONATHAN WARD, remain on injured reserve. Benjamin started three games while Conner was injured, but he did not record a carry in Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Rams. Less



Cardinals RB Conner, K Prater iffy for Thursday Night Football

Arizona Cardinals running back JAMES CONNER and kicker MATT PRATER are both listed as questionable heading into tonight’s game against the New Orleans Saints. Conner reportedly as a better chance ofMore playing tonight, while the Cardinals are expected to elevate kicker RODRIGO BLANKENSHIP from the practice squad to the active roster sometime today (a bad sign for Prater). Meanwhile, wide receiver MARQUISE BROWN is expected to miss 4-6 weeks due to a foot injury, while fellow wide receiver DEANDRE HOPKINS returns from a suspension. Less

Fantasy News: Short-yardage rushing

Jacoby Brissett has been better than I was expecting as a fill-in quarterback for the Browns. In general, he’s been able to operate the offense. And he’s been particularly good on quarterback sneaks.   more »

Arizona RB Conner likely out for Week #6

Arizona Cardinals running back JAMES CONNER is expected to miss Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks due to a rib injury. Conner hasn’t practiced this week, increasing the expectation that heMore won’t take the field on Sunday.

Factoid: Arizona running backs

James Conner put up big numbers last year, but he also has missed at least two games in all five years he’s been in the pros. That makes the backup running back job in Arizona one of the more important camp battles in the league.  more »

Around the NFL: Eno Benjamin

From the sound of Kliff Kingsbury’s press conferences, Arizona’s backup running back might not be Darrel Williams or Keontay Ingram. Kingsbury says he likes what he’s seen out of Eno Benjamin.  more »


Around the NFL: Darrel Williams

I have a new favorite last-round pick. Darrel Williams. I think he’s going to win the backup tailback job in Arizona, and he’ll be pretty productive when he’s in there.  more »



Cardinals sign former KC running back Williams

The Arizona Cardinals signed 26-year-old former Kansas City running back DARREL WILLIAMS earlier this week. Williams is entering his fifth NFL season after setting several career highs last season in KansasMore City. With former running back CHASE EDMONDS now in Miami, Arizona needed a proven pass-catching back to pair with starter JAMES CONNER. Time will tell if Williams is able to build on his career highs from last season with his new team. Less
