Rashard Mendenhall "clearly" team's RB1

Cardinals beat writer Mike Jurecki on RB Rashard Mendenhall: "He's look good hitting the holes, good in pass protection, catching a ball the backfield, clearly the number #1 RB."

Fantasy Impact: 

Given the one-year deal, the Cardinals (and other teams) may not feel that Mendenhall is completely healthy and want to limit their risk. The deal allows Mendenhall to prove himself and potentially cash in next summer. He will vie with Ryan Williams for touches in the Arizona backfield, but appears to have the inside track to be the team's RB1.
