Texans RB Rex Burkhead (concussion) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Browns. RB Eno Benjamin is active for the 1st time as a Texan and could play a passing-down role behind RB Dameon Pierce.

Texans RB Eno Benjamin is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Commanders. It's not a big surprise considering he just joined the team earlier this week. RB Rex Burkhead will continue in his passing-down role for at least 1 more game.

The Texans claimed RB Eno Benjamin off waivers from the Cardinals. Benjamin could immediately push RB Rex Burkhead for a passing-down role in Houston, but we doubt he tangibly impacts RB Dameon Pierce's workload. Consider Benjamin the Pierce handcuff going forward.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Cardinals have informed RB Eno Benjamin that they're releasing him. It's a surprising move given that Benjamin spent 3 games as starter this year, while James Conner was out. He played just 1 offensive snap in Sunday's win over the Rams, though, despite being active and healthy. It appears the team will proceed with Keaontay Ingram and Darrel Williams behind Conner. (Williams has at least 2 more games on IR.)

Cardinals RB James Conner ran for 69 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's win over the Rams, adding 17 yards on 3 receptions. He dominated backfield work in his 2nd game back from a 3-week rib injury. RB Keaontay Ingram claimed the team's only other RB carry. No other Cardinals RB drew a target in the game. Conner gets another tough rushing matchup with the 49ers in Week 11, but the kind of work volume he got Sunday will make him a weekly starter for most fantasy football teams going forward. Eno Benjamin was active but didn't get a touch in the game.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray (hamstring) is not expected to play against the Rams today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. A final decision won't come until pregame warmups, but Schefter says QB Colt McCoy is "likely" to get the start. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport agrees, tweeting that Murray is "unlikely" to play. "He's still moving very gingerly," Rapoport adds. We won't get Arizona's inactives until 3 pm ET, but fantasy owners should operate under the assumption that Murray will not play.

Cardinals RB James Conner returned Sunday after losing 3 games to a rib injury. He led Arizona RBs in carries (7), rushing yards (45) and receiving (5-19 on 5 targets). Eno Benjamin logged 4 carries for 12 yards and caught his lone target for 15 more. They both watched QB Kyler Murray lead the team in rushing attempts (8) and ground yards (60). Next comes a Rams matchup that has ranked among the league's worst for RB scoring.

Cardinals RB James Conner (ribs) is active for today’s game vs. the Seahawks. It’ll be his first action since Week 5. In 3 healthy games this season, Conner has averaged 12.7 carries and 4.7 targets. We’ll see if RB Eno Benjamin eats into that work at all going forward.

Cardinals RB James Conner (ribs) is expected to play vs. the Seahawks later today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. "Arizona does want to test him in pre-game warmups," Schefter adds. We won't get the Cardinals' inactives until a little after 2:30 pm ET, so you should have a late-game backup plan in place if you're hoping to use Conner. Assuming he plays, we're projecting him to step back in as Arizona's lead back. But RB Eno Benjamin could play a bigger role behind Conner than he did early in the season.

Cardinals RB James Conner (ribs) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Seahawks. HC Kliff Kingsbury called him a game-time decision on Friday. This is a 4:05 pm ET kickoff, but we’ll look for an update on Conner on Sunday morning. RB Darrel Williams (hip) was placed on IR earlier this week, so Eno Benjamin will control backfield work if Conner sits again.

Cardinals RB James Conner (ribs) was limited again in Thursday's practice. He seemingly has a shot to return for this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks, but check back tomorrow for another update.

The Cardinals on Wednesday place RB Darrel Williams on with a hip injury. It was a knee issue that previously cost Williams game time and rendered him questionable for last week's contest. His absence only solidifies Eno Benjamin as #2 to James Conner, who put in a limited Wednesday practice (ribs).

Cardinals RB James Conner (ribs) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. He was limited last Wednesday and Thursday before missing Friday's practice and the Vikings game. RB Darrel Williams (hip) was placed on IR on Wednesday, leaving Eno Benjamin and Keaontay Ingram as Arizona's healthy RBs.

Cardinals RB Eno Benjamin mustered only 45 total yards against the Vikings in Week 8. He saw 9 carries, 4 more than teammate Darrel Williams. The real issue here was a Cardinals offense that went pass heavy following a 14-3 2nd quarter deficit. Now, Week 9 could bring the return of James Conner, who’s been sidelined since Week 5. That makes Benjamin much more of a bench stash vs. an RB2/FLEX.

Cardinals RB Darrel Williams (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Vikings. It’ll be his first action since Week 5. Williams figures to play behind RB Eno Benjamin – but his return is a slight ding to Benjamin’s Week 8 fantasy outlook.

Cardinals RB James Conner (ribs) is out for this weekend's game vs. the Vikings. He got in limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday but didn't practice on Friday, so this looks like a setback. RB Darrel Williams (knee) will be a game-time decision, HC Kliff Kingsbury said. But it'll be Eno Benjamin again leading the backfield against Minnesota's 9th-ranked RB defense. Consider Benjamin a RB2 -- and a safer fantasy bet if Williams remains out.

Cardinals RBs James Conner (ribs) and Darrel Williams (knee) got in limited practices on Wednesday. Both guys seemingly have a shot to make it back for this weekend's game vs. the Vikings. We're guessing that Conner would re-assume lead duties, but RB Eno Benjamin might have earned himself a bigger role. Williams will likely return as the #3 RB.

Cardinals RB James Conner (ribs) is inactive for tonight's game vs. the Saints. That leaves Eno Benjamin as Arizona's lead back. He handled 15 carries and 3 targets last week and should be in for similar volume tonight. RB Corey Clement was elevated from the practice squad and joins RB Keaontay Ingram behind Benjamin.
