he's been out several weeks due to injury. if there's anything he does well...it's being injured. i despise the guy for fantasy purposes, but he's likely to take over the primary RB duties for the Cardinals. i play in a league with deep benches, so i can afford to pick him up on the off chance that he actually has value for the remainder of the season. i think the reason he seemed like such a 'steal'...is because, as you said...you 'don't know much about him'. a bit of advice: never pick up anyone until YOU DO know something about them. good luck this week!
