With the Cardinals opening camp, the team has placed running back Beanie Wells on the active/PUP list. Unlike the reserve/PUP list, which is for the regular season, Wells can be activated at any time and will not have to miss 6 games. However, he will not practice and it’s a very bad sign for someone who had what was described as “minor” knee surgery way back in January.

Wells assured everyone that he would be ready for week 1, but called himself 75% right now, which is not promising. Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt said that Wells would not be out for an “extended” period of time, but Wells’ comments do suggest that he expects to miss at least a week or two of Training Camp, while Whisenhunt’s comments are pretty vague.

I’ve already got Wells pretty low on my fantasy board because of his history of injuries and because of the glowing reports about his backup, 2011 2nd round pick Ryan Williams. I’ll drop Wells even lower if he starts missing preseason games. At his current ADP in the 6th round, he’s overvalued, while Williams is a good value in the 9th round.
