Summary

Running Back Rank: #37All Players: #105
Mendenhall started a couple games last season but was inactive many weeks and even got a one-game suspension from the team because of some comments made. Needless to say, he did little to help his case to start in the NFL going forward. His 182 yards last season were his lowest since his rookie year. Mendenhall has two 1,000-yard seasons under his belt but battled injury much of his career and struggled with consistency at times. He is only 26 years old, though, and will get his chance to prove his worth with the Cardinals this season. He'll compete for the starting job with Ryan Williams and might have a slight edge since he is familiar with new coach Bruce Arians. Mendenhall is a good between the tackles runner but has the speed to break some big plays. He also is a decent receiving option capable of helping in the passing game.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
It wouldn't surprise to see him rebound some from last season and grab the starting job but don't expect him to reach 1,000-yard status once again. He could get around 800 total yards and a few scores, making him worth a look as a No. 3 back for fantasy teams.

comments about Rashard Mendenhall

Notes

Arizona Cardinals impending free-agent RB Rashard Mendenhall said he was tired of living a 'private life in the public eye' as his reason for considering retirement at the age of 26 years old. 'I just kind of wanted to disappear,' Mendenhall wrote. 'The fact that I was done playing would've been clear once some time had passed and I hadn't signed back with the Cardinals or any other team. Maybe people would've thought I couldn't get another job. Either way, I was OK with the idea of fading to black, and my legacy becoming, 'Whatever happened to that dude Rashard Mendenhall? He was pretty good for a few years, then he just vanished.''

Arizona Cardinals impending free-agent RB Rashard Mendenhall hinted at retirement in a piece he posted on The Huffington Post Tuesday, Feb. 25. 'That day I sat on my couch two years ago was the very next day after I tore my ACL in week 17. The journey I envisioned is the two years of rebuilding that would follow. And as I write this, today is the day that the journey is over and I am fully at peace. Eagerly looking to a new way, which lies ahead,' Mendenhall wrote.
Fantasy Impact: We'll see. It wouldn't be a surprise but he would seem to have a few years left to play if he wanted.
