Running Backs (4)

James Conner, Eno Benjamin, Jonathan Ward, Keaontay Ingram

Conner is coming off of a Pro Bowl campaign in which he scored 15 rushing touchdowns in what was a season of redemption for the former Pittsburgh Steeler. However, his injury issues lingered and a 3.7 yards per carry should cause further concerns. That said, look for the Cardinals to remain deep at running back.

Benjamin struggled in limited duty. But with a strong preseason, he could slide into a decent RB2 role. Right now, he has the edge over Jonathan Ward, who contributes more on special teams.

Ingram is one to watch. The former Texas Longhorn turned USC Trojan had just 415 carries in college and still produced at a high level. He has an outside chance to supplant Benjamin with a solid camp and preseason. His size and draft status carry Terrell Davis vibes.
