Cardinals running backs do little in playoff loss to Carolina
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(1/3/15) Cardinals running backs Kerwynn Williams, Stepfan Taylor, Marion Grice and Robert Hughes could do little to nothing in Arizona's 27-16 loss to the Panthers Saturday. Arizona's running backs had 15 carries for 27 yards and one touchdown in defeat.
Grice had just one carry for one yard and a touchdown. It was initally called a fumble on the field, with the ball popping out as Grice stretched for the end zone. However, it was overturned and called a touchdown.
The Cardinals have been unable to get anything going on the ground the past few weeks, averaging 1.86 yards per carry in Arizona's last two outings.
Cardinals RB situation a complete mess now
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(12/22/14) Whether it was because he was limited in practice by a knee injury leading up to the game or because the Cardinals fell behind early and needed more of a pass blocker in the backfield, running back Kerwynn Williams, who had performed admirably the previous two weeks, totaling 175 yards on the ground, was hardly a factor Week 16 against Seattle, getting two carries for 4 yards.
Instead, Stepfan Taylor was the lead ball carrier. Of course, he wasn't so effective in the role, picking up 19 yards on 11 carries, but that's bound to happen for any running back going against the Seahawks. He did at least have 25 yards on two catches. Marion Grice and Robert Hughes also each got a carry, but they haven't been as much of a factor with Andre Ellington out.
Williams seems to be the best rusher of the group and the one you'd prefer to see get the carries in Fantasy, but if the Cardinals are that willing to abandon him when the score isn't in their favor, you can never feel confident playing him in Fantasy. Especially now that the Cardinals are down to their third quarterback, the score isn't going to be in their favor so often.
Week 17 at San Francisco should be a more competitive game, but given that the 49ers are tough against the run as well, you should probably pass on Williams for the season's final week.
Cardinals' Stepfan Taylor gains just 19 yards
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(12/22/14) Cardinals running back Stepfan Taylor had a tough game Week 16 against the Seahawks.
Taylor received 11 carries, but only gained 19 yards during the contest. With Ryan Lindley at quarterback, the Seahawks defense could focus on stopping the run all game. Taylor averaged just 1.7 yards per attempt during the contest. He was a slightly larger threat in the passing game, pulling down two receptions for 25 yards.
Taylor will take on the 49ers Week 17.
Cardinals' Kerwynn Williams, Stepfan Taylor split carries vs. Rams
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(12/11/14) Cardinals running backs Kerwynn Williams and Stepfan Taylor shared the workload Thursday, with Williams receiving 15 carries and Taylor getting 14 carries in the team's 12-6 win over the Rams in Week 15.
Williams was the star of the rushing attack last week and led the team in rushing again Thursday, gaining 75 yards on his 15 carries while adding 11 more yards on two receptions. But he shared the ball virtually evenly in the running game with Taylor, who racked up 61 yards on 14 carries while not receiving a target in the passing game. Neither player scored a touchdown, but neither team was able to reach the end zone on a night where defenses reigned.
The Cardinals could opt to continue the time share in Week 16 when the Seahawks come to town. If quarterback Drew Stanton (knee) ends up missing that game, the offense could lean heavily on Williams and Taylor again.
Stepfan Taylor gets seven touches Week 14
|by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst|
|(12/7/14) Cardinals running back Stepfan Taylor ran six times for 19 yards and caught a 7-yard pass in Sunday's win over the Chiefs. He started but gave way to second-year pro Kerwynn Williams, who ran for 100 yards on 19 carries.
Taylor visits the Rams on Thursday.
|Stepfan Taylor is expected to compete with Kerwynn Williams for the Cardinals No. 3 running back job behind Andre Ellington and David Johnson. Last year, Taylor struggled with 63 carries for 208 yards and one touchdown and 11 catches for 79 yards and three touchdowns. He would only have Fantasy relevance if Ellington or Johnson got hurt, and he's not worth drafting in the majority of leagues.
