Cardinals | Andre Ellington set for similar role

Sun, 03 May 2015 17:02:45 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington's role in 2015 will be similar to the role he had last season, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Although it sounds like Ellington will have a shot to be the lead back again in 2015, his small frame is a concern. He was unable to stay healthy or produce many big plays while doing the heavy lifting in the backfield last year. Still, a lack of competition in Arizona makes him a low-end RB2 in traditional formats, and his value receives a boost in PPR formats.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington making progress

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 11:42:37 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington's (foot) injured foot is about 95% healed, and Ellington has not suffered any setbacks, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington missed the last month of the season because of several injuries, but it looks like he should be ready for at least training camp. Ellington likely will have to share work with another running back during the season, which will hurt his value. Ellington likely will have more value in point-per reception leagues, but could be a solid option in the middle rounds of most drafts.

Cardinals | Run game catered to Andre Ellington?

Sat, 04 Apr 2015 18:47:04 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington's injuries last season forced the running game to be adjusted to the strengths of several different players, and head coach Bruce Arians believes stability at the position will improve the Arizona's rushing results.

Fantasy Tip: Although the Cardinals are expected to add a power back to support Ellington, it sounds like Arians would still prefer to have Ellington receive a steady amount of carries. His durability concerns aren't going away, but Ellington should still be considered a RB2 with upside heading into 2015.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington's role won't be reduced

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 16:42:28 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington, who averaged 20.6 touches per game in 2014 before being injured, won't have his role reduced in 2015, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Ellington's role in the passing game may increase, too. Ellington was often limited in practices during the week last year because of his foot injury.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington has often been criticized that he lacks lead-back capabilities. Things could change if Arizona drafts or trades for a running back, but with a revamped offensive line, Ellington could be a sleeper runner for fantasy owners in 2015 in the later rounds.

Cardinals | Help coming for Andre Ellington?

Mon, 16 Mar 2015 18:15:46 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington dealt with several injuries last season, and general manager Steve Keim said that the Cardinals "definitely need to shore up" the running back position.

Fantasy Tip: Although adding another quality back would cut into Ellington's touches, it could actually help his fantasy value if it allows him to maintain his health and explosiveness for the entire season.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington needs to build strength

Sun, 22 Feb 2015 09:42:32 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington needs to bulk up and improve his strength this offseason so he can stay healthy for an entire season, according to general manager Steve Keim. Keim said he believes Ellington can be a featured back in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington was limited to 12 games this past season because of injuries, but he did see an increase in his carries and receptions. The Cardinals likely will add another running back during the offseason, but Ellington should have a similar role in next season. Ellington could be a middle round draft choice in fantasy drafts next season.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington injury update

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 13:50:38 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) remains the focal point of the offense, according to Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians. Ellington split the injured tendon in his left foot, Arians said, according to ESPN.com's Josh Weinfuss.

Fantasy Tip: The term "split" is broad, but it likely means it was a complete tear, or Grade 3, which is the most severe. Ellington is already running and appears to be on track for a healthy 2015 season. Consider him a shaky RB2 in PPR leagues or a third back in standard formats.

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 11:48:01 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Ellington played well this season and should regain his job as the team's No. 1 running back next season. Ellington likely will be taking in one of the first few rounds of 2015 drafts.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington's surgery goes well

Tue, 09 Dec 2014 12:48:48 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (hernia) said his hernia surgery went well Tuesday, Dec. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington is out for the year, so Kerwynn Williams and Stepfan Taylor will split duties in the backfield, though Williams performed much better in Week 14 and is more worthy of consideration in lineups, especially at $3,000 on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington officially goes to IR

Mon, 08 Dec 2014 11:09:58 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (hip) was officially placed on Reserve/Injured Monday, Dec. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Kerwynn Williams was the main running back for the Cardinals in Week 14 and ran for 100 yards with Ellington out. He's worth a pickup if you need an extra running back in your fantasy playoffs.
