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.

Cardinals | Arizona turning to Andre Ellington?

Tue, 12 Sep 2017 21:05:16 -0700

Adding more context to an earlier report, Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians told Sirius XM NFL Radio Tuesday, Sept. 12, he is hopeful RB David Johnson (wrist) can return "by Thanksgiving or Christmas." In the meantime, Arians hinted RB Andre Ellington would be the player most likely to carry the load for the Cardinals in Johnson's absence.

Fantasy Tip: This comes as a surprise in that Kerwynn Williams is Johnson's direct backup, but Arians told Sirius XM that Ellington "was the guy that we drafted David Johnson to play behind" and Arizona "kind of built (the offense) around Andre a few years back" before Johnson's emergence. It's an extremely optimistic take from the coach, but one owners should be willing to take at face value at the moment. While this most likely will be a committee attack, Ellington appears to be the one to grab in fantasy.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington going back to RB

Wed, 07 Jun 2017 11:25:48 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington is moving back to running back, and the team will be looking for him to have a tougher running style, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington probably will compete for the backup running back job during training camp after the team briefly moved him to wide receiver. Ellington likely will receive limited touches in 2017 and should only be a late-round option.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington learning new role

Sun, 21 May 2017 20:22:15 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR Andre Ellington said the hardest part of his transition from running back to wide receiver is the change in terminology.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington can be a big-play weapon, but the move to receiver doesn't guarantee playing time. He doesn't need to be drafted at this point.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington receiving praise

Wed, 10 May 2017 09:27:14 -0700

Arizona Cardinals WR Andre Ellington is getting more comfortable with the nuances of being a receiver and has the fluidity and ability to run routes with the right angle and bend, according to QB Carson Palmer. "Everything changes when he's got to line up and there are 11 guys across the ball and he, post-snap, has to make decisions. That's difficult. But he runs really good routes, and the thing that really excites me is, once he gets the ball in his hands, what is he going to do with it? He's not a receiver, he's a running back when he has the ball in his hands," Palmer said.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington is a wild-card in fantasy and reality. The odds are against him considering Larry Fitzgerald, John Brown and J.J. Nelson are pretty much locked into the first three spots on the depth chart. With that said, he has more value to the Cardinals as a player who could be their third running back and fifth receiver. Barring a catastrophic number of injuries at either position, however, Ellington will have a hard time being useful in fantasy this year.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington moving to receiver

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 08:42:41 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington is moving to wide receiver, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: This could be a sneaky move for fantasy purposes. Ellington wasn't going to have much value with David Johnson ahead of him as one of the best backs in the NFL. We aren't expecting Ellington to make a sudden transition to an upper echelon receiver, but he's someone that you can grab as a WR5 and possibly use as a bye-week replacement at running back in PPR formats.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington deal for one year

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 05:56:15 -0700

Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington landed a one-year deal with a $775,000 base salary.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington is expected to be used more as a receiver in the backfield, but David Johnson's emergence as potentially the best RB in fantasy limits Ellington to possible flex usage.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington to play receiver more

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 13:05:39 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington is expected to be used more as a wide receiver than a running back in 2017. He will play both positions, but the Cardinals like him more at wide receiver, according to azcentral.com's Kent Somers.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington is versatile, but his fantasy value is majorly limited with David Johnson. Johnson also plays running back and receiver, and plays them very well. Ellington is merely a late-round handicap flier for Johnson owners at this juncture.
