Cardinals | Jonathan Dwyer deactivated

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 16:58:56 -0700

The team plans to closely monitor the situation as it develops and evaluate additional information as it becomes available.

Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain if Dwyer has officially been deactivated for the Week 3 game, but if so, Stepfan Taylor would see a bump in fantasy value playing directly behind Andre Ellington.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington active today

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 09:16:36 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) is active Sunday, Sept. 14.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown if he will be limited, though. With QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) out, it's possible that Ellington and Jonathan Dwyer could receive more carries. Ellington is a solid RB2 at $5,500 (11% of your cap) on FantasyScore this week. Dwyer is more of a speculative flex play at $4,400 (8.8%) in Week 2, but he receives a boost in fantasy with Palmer out.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington limited Sunday

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 08:17:54 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) was limited again in the walkthrough Sunday, Sept. 7, according to general manager Steve Keim. The team will evaluate him in pre-game warmups Monday, Sept. 8, before determining whether he will play or not.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington carries a lot of risk at $7,000 (14% of your cap) on FantasyScore for Week 1. Jonathan Dwyer is an excellent bargain buy at $3,700 (7.4% of your cap) as a flex option in Week 1.

Cardinals | No surgery for Andre Ellington

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 16:11:02 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (ankle, foot) consulted with three foot/ankle specialists and received different opinions, but all agreed no surgery is needed at this time. His injury is to the peroneus longus tendon. The tendon wraps down and under the foot by way of the cuboid bone. The options are having him wear a walking boot for two to three weeks to strengthen the muscle before returning, or not wear a boot and play in Week 1 against the San Diego Chargers Monday, Sept. 8. The team could brace the arch/foot and test him in pregame warmups.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington is considered questionable for Monday's game. While he wants to play, it is likely he does not go and Jonathan Dwyer gets a lion's share of the carries. At 14% of the cap in FantasyScore, Ellington is just too risky to use in an active lineup. Dwyer is an excellent flex option at $3,700 (7.4% of your cap) in Week 1.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington limited

Sat, 06 Sep 2014 15:40:37 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) was limited in practice Saturday, Sept. 6, and is questionable for Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: He's expected to be a game-time decision for Week 1. At $7,000 (14% of your cap) on FantasyScore, he's a risky RB1. RB Jonathan Dwyer ($3,700 - 7.4% of your cap on FantasyScore) makes an intriguing value buy this week if Ellington can't go.

Cardinals | Jonathan Dwyer prepared to start

Sat, 06 Sep 2014 10:37:56 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Jonathan Dwyer said he's prepared to start this week if RB Andre Ellington (foot) can't play. Dwyer said each running back prepares as if they're going to start every week.

Fantasy Tip: Dwyer wouldn't be the most attractive option in starting lineups if he does start, but could provide some value at a price of $3,700 on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington not at practice

Fri, 05 Sep 2014 13:44:03 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) was not present at practice Friday, Sept. 5, and he's scheduled to be looked at by a local foot specialist. It's unknown if he'll be able to play in Week 1 against the San Diego Chargers Monday, Sept. 8. If he can't go, RB Jonathan Dwyer will start in his place. Dwyer had 49 carries for 197 yards with the Pittsburgh Steelers last season.

Fantasy Tip: With the Cardinals playing Monday, the no-brainer thing to do is sit Ellington, who is probably highly unlikely to play at this point. Dwyer has familiarity with head coach Bruce Arians from their days in Pittsburgh, so he'll see the first chance to replace Ellington. Look to acquire Dwyer immediately if you own Ellington.

Cardinals | Ellington could miss 4-6 weeks?

Fri, 05 Sep 2014 10:46:34 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) could be out for four to six weeks or longer, depending on his prognosis. His timetable for a return will depend mainly on how quickly he heals.

Fantasy Tip: It's terrible news for anyone that spent a high draft pick on Ellington. You can be comforted to know that he at least isn't expected to need surgery. Regardless, you'll have to bench him for Week 1 and likely several more weeks. Jonathan Dwyer should be your first target on the waiver wire if you own Ellington, but we wouldn't advise starting him even though he's dirt cheap in FantasyScore this week ($3,700, 7.4% of cap).
