Cardinals | Andre Ellington questionable for Week 7

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 11:35:58 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quad) did not practice for a second straight day Friday, Oct. 20, and is listed as questionable on the team's Week 7 injury report.

Fantasy Tip: It obviously does not bode well for his prospects of playing in London against the Los Angeles Rams and should clear the way for Adrian Peterson to see most of the snaps, although it is very likely Kerwynn Williams will inherit at least part of Ellington's pass-catching role.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington out of practice

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 07:09:45 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) is out of practice Friday, Oct. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington was a flex option against the Los Angeles Rams in PPR leagues, but scratch that notion. Kerwynn Williams probably isn't much of an option either.

Cardinals | No practice for Andre Ellington

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 13:04:33 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) was not able to practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington was limited yesterday, so him not practicing is obviously not a good sign. He was targeted only once last week in what was an extremely unfavorable game script for the pass-catching back. He's too risky of a start even if he does play.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington listed as limited

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 15:18:46 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington has been a big part of the team's passing game this season and has 28 receptions and 257 receiving yards in six games. He should be able to play in Week 7 and should be considered a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington catches nine passes

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 14:19:45 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington caught nine passes for 65 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington has become a big part of the passing game over the last few weeks and should continue to have that role moving forward. He can be a flex option in most leagues next week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington leads all RBs in targets

Wed, 04 Oct 2017 20:32:54 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington has garnered the most targets of any running back in the NFL through the season's first four weeks, drawing 30 throws from QB Carson Palmer. That's one ahead of Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen and Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey.

Fantasy Tip: This is actually a very telling stat about Ellington's notable potential moving forward, as this also takes into account Week 1, which the Arizona tailback barely played in. Over the last two weeks, Ellington has racked up 14 catches on 22 total targets alone, and with David Johnson being out for possibly the rest of the fantasy season, that makes the five-year veteran a must-own commodity in all PPR formats and deep leagues.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington totals 14 touches

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 20:21:51 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington ran five times for 18 yards in Week 4 against the San Francisco 49ers and he added nine receptions for 86 yards on a game-high 14 targets.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington totaled 14 touches to 16 for Chris Johnson, as head coach Bruce Arians searches for the right combination with David Johnson on the shelf. Ellington has been far more productive for fantasy owners, particularly in PPR formats.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington paces Arizona backfield

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 21:43:12 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington led the team in rushing yards with 22 on just five carries in the team's Week 3 game Monday, Sept. 25, against the Dallas Cowboys. He also added five receptions for 59 yards.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like the once mega-popular fantasy commodity will be getting another shot at glory based on how the running game was utilized in this one, as Ellington played considerably more snaps than both Chris Johnson and Kerwynn Williams. It was flashes of the Ellington from years ago when he first broke into the league and was regularly involved in the passing game. After two nothing performances to begin his season, Ellington has revitalized his value and should not be on any waiver wires.

Cardinals | Kerwynn Williams will start this week

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 14:00:08 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Kerwynn Williams will be the starting running back this week with RB Andre Ellington serving as the No. 2 running back, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Williams, Ellington and Chris Johnson form a committee in place of David Johnson. Williams does have the most fantasy appeal as the technical starter, but his ceiling is limited with the presence of the other two backs. Williams is no more than a flex option in Week 2.
