Mendenhall is a decent sleeper. For the past few seasons, the Cardinals really did not have a running game. In fact, they did not really even have a respectable passing game with John Skelton and Kevin Kolb playing, "Who can get the ball to Fitzgerald Better." The winner was Skelton, and Beanie Wells was never 100%. Mendy can do some special things here as Carson Palmer should have this offense playing to a new level they have not seen since Kurt Warner.   
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
It's been a rough go for Mendenhall of late from an injury perspective, but he's getting a fresh start with Arizona. He's effective around the goal line, but his days as a consistent, weekly starter on your fantasy squad may be in the past.   
Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
Mendenhall signed a one-year deal with Arizona this season, as the Cardinals took some advice from their team strategy in Jerry Maguire. I cant ever endorse Mendenhall know that hes a consistent injury risk, will rarely give any big games and is currently battling knee tendinitis.   
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Rams were 19th against fantasy backs, but Mendenhall is coming off a knee injury in the preseason. While he is expected to play, I still think he is a low flex option.   
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Mendy's role is there but the matchup really isn't.

Will open season as workhorse with long leash; Backfield has RBBC written all over it
