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.
 
  
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.
 
  
Tozzi Brothers
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 can’t ever endorse Mendenhall – know that he’s a consistent injury risk, will rarely give any big games and is currently battling knee tendinitis.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Mendy's role is there but the matchup really isn't.

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.
