Cardinals | Bruce Arians backs Rashard Mendenhall

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said on NFL AM that "there's no doubt" RB Rashard Mendenhall would be the featured back if the season started Wednesday, June 19. Arians is shying away from the notion that this is a time share. Mendenhall is also ready to go after fighting Achilles' tendonitis last year following early-2012 knee surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Hard to believe Mendy turns 26 today. Arians' history with Mendenhall will help with the transition, and as long as he's healthy, he'll take the lion's share of carries away from Ryan Williams, Andre Ellington and Stepfan Taylor. Mendenhall is a second fantasy back that might be the victim of overvaluation.
