The Pittsburgh Steelers added RB LaRod Stephens-Howling to primarily be a kick returner, but he could also see playng time on third downs. He may have to compete with RB Baron Batch for a roster spot during training camp.
Huddle Up: The Steelers like Le'Veon Bell as an every-down back and have Isaac Redman as a potential third-down back as well. If Stephens-Howling's roster spot is dependent on his special teams contributions he should be in good shape, but it's tough to see him bringing much fantasy value beyond his return duties.

Arizona Cardinals RB LaRod Stephens-Howling (ribs) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 21.
Huddle Up: Stephens-Howling has 3 TDs and a pair of 100-yard games in his past 4 outings, but his Week 12 fantasy value will take a hit with Beanie Wells' return and some possible aching ribs.

Arizona Cardinals RB LaRod Stephens-Howling will start in Week 11 against the Atlanta Falcons, but then he is expected to head back to the bench in Week 12 with RB Beanie Wells (toe) returning from the Injured Reserve/Designated to Return list.
Huddle Up: Stephens-Howling, who has scored double-digit fantasy points in two of his past 3 outings, has a decent matchup this week against a Falcons' defense allowing the ninth-most fantasy points to opposing RBs, but his run as the starter looks like it's hitting the end. Wells hasn't played since Week 3, but it sounds like he's rested and rehabbed for a Week 12 return.

Arizona Cardinals RB LaRod Stephens-Howling is ready for a big role in Week 6 against the Buffalo Bills with RB Beanie Wells (toe) and RB Ryan Williams (shouder) out of action.
Huddle Up: It remains unclear on the Cards' RB rotation plans in Week 6, but figure on Stephens-Howling, William Powell and Alfonso Smith -- providing all are healthy -- getting early opportunities with the hot hand getting the bulk of the work from there.

Arizona Cardinals RB LaRod Stephens-Howling (hip) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 11.
Huddle Up: Good sign for Stephens-Howling, who hasn't played since Week 3. With Beanie Wells and Ryan Wiilliams out, Stephens-Howling and fellow backs William Powell and Alfonso Smith are expected to shoulder the workload for the foreseeable future in Arizona.
