Quick fantasy outlook: Rashard Mendenhall was a first-round pick by the Steelers in 2008 and has a couple of 1,000-yard seasons under his belt. He played out his contract in Pittsburgh and signed with the Cardinals this offseason, where he will likely be starter at running back. When he is healthy, Mendenhall is a no-nonsense runner who stays north-south and gets the tough inside yards. He has been somewhat injury-prone so far in his NFL career, but the Cardinals are used to that in their running backs. Mendenhall will have to fend off Ryan Williams, as well as rookies Stepfan Taylor and Andre Ellington, for carries. Because the Cardinals' running game has lacked luster in recent seasons, and because Mendenhall is no sure thing to maintain the starting job all season, he should not drafted as a fantasy starter in leagues that start only two running backs.
