Fantasy Impact:

As expected, Arians named Williams the Cardinals' RB1, with Andre Ellington assuming the role of the team's primary third down back for Sunday's Week 2 matchup against the Colts. Newly added Chris Johnson will land behind both of them on the depth chart. From a fantasy perspective, Williams is the hot waiver wire add to replace David Johnson. However, since Arians is fully anticipated to employ an RBBC, consider any rusher from Arizona a risky fantasy start until there is greater clarity on workload splits.
