Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians expanded on how the team plans to use RB Andre Ellington this year at the owners meetings this week. "He is still not a guy who you will pound up the middle 30 times a game and survive," Arians said. "He can run the football 30 times a game if you do it correctly, but you'd rather have him have 10 catches and 20 carries and let Stepfan Taylor or (Jonathan) Dwyer have the rest of the carries pound the rest of the ball up in there."
Fantasy Tip: This much is clear: The Cardinals want Ellington to be their lead back, but like most teams these days, they'll be wary not to overuse him. But Ellington will see plenty of touches each game, probably enough to make him a legitimate RB2 with upside to break out. He's an ideal candidate in PPR formats, too.

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington has added 10 pounds already this offseason. Head coach Bruce Arians said they want to build the offense around him.
Fantasy Tip: Ellington will likely be Arizona's lead back next season with Rashard Mendenhall expected to depart in free agency. However, Stepfan Taylor should cut into Ellington's touches enough to make him more of an RB2. Ellington will be more valuable in point-per-reception leagues.

Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim is confident in RB Stepfan Taylor as a complement to RB Andre Ellington if impending free-agent RB Rashard Mendenhall leaves in free agency.

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (knee) will not require surgery for the knee injury he suffered late in the season. He plans to rehab the injury, and be up to speed when the team returns to practice in the spring. "He is such a mismatch," head coach Bruce Arians said Friday, Jan. 10. "If he is your running back and he's matched up on safeties and linebackers, he can really improve in that area. It's something that he's never done, and he got better and better all year."
Fantasy Tip: Ellington went for more than 1,000 total yards from scrimmage, posting 652 rushing yards and 371 receiving yards in his rookie season. With Arians hinting that Ellington could line up as a receiver, fantasy owners in keeper formats have to be extremely happy. It sounds as if Ellington has a bright future in the Arizona offense, and his role looks to be expanding once he gets healthy.

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 20, and is listed as probable for Week 16.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Ellington will be able to play this week and should be considered a flex option in standard leagues and a No. 2 running back or flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (thigh) is dealing with a thigh bruise, which forced him out of the overtime portion of the Week 15 game against the Tennessee Titans. As long as the tissue trauma to Ellington's thigh is relatively mild, and he is able to run without pain by late in the week, Ellington has a good chance of being able to play in the Week 16 game.
