Wed, 08 Nov 2017 15:12:33 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington has had a solid role in the passing game this season but is coming off a disappointing Week 9 game. He will be facing a tough Seattle Seahawks defense but can still be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

Mon, 06 Nov 2017 16:13:19 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) fully participated in the team's walkthrough Monday, Nov. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington was limited to only 15 yards in Week 9 and should continue to have a solid role in the passing game against the Seattle Seahawks. He can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues this week despite the tough matchup.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington to play in Week 9

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 06:04:10 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) will play in Week 9's game against the San Francisco 49ers, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He is worthy of consideration as a low-end RB2 or flex option in PPR fantasy formats, even without the Cardinals having Carson Palmer under center.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington listed as questionable

Fri, 03 Nov 2017 14:49:59 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 3, and is listed as questionable for Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington may be a game-time decision, so owners should check the inactive list before deciding on their lineups. He has a solid role in the passing game when he is healthy and should be considered a low-end No. 2 running back or flex option in point-per-reception leagues if he plays.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington limited again at practice

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 16:31:12 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) was a limited participant in practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Nov. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington didn't play in last week's contest in London, and the week before that, he was completely shut out in a game that saw more than 70 total points, so even if he does return here, he won't be a recommended option for any league. In addition, the whole offense figures to be downgraded after Carson Palmer was placed on injured reserve.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington limited

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 15:36:12 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington received two weeks off to recover from the injury, so he should have a decent chance to play this week. He has had a big role in the passing game this season and can be a low-end No. 2 running back or flex option in point-per-reception leagues if he is active.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington not expected to play

Sat, 21 Oct 2017 21:01:49 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) is not expected to play against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 7, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington's absence should ensure that Adrian Peterson dominates the backfield touches for the second week in a row, and he can be deployed as a RB2 against the Rams.

Cardinals | Arizona's Week 7 injury report

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 11:44:59 -0700

Arizona Cardinals LB Karlos Dansby (hamstring), DL Robert Nkemdiche (calf), DL Olsen Pierre (ankle) and DL Xavier Williams (knee) all practiced on a limited basis Friday, Oct. 20, and are listed as questionable for Week 7 in London versus the Los Angeles Rams. RB Andre Ellington (quad) did not participate in practice for the second straight day and has also been listed as possible. DL Corey Peters (knee), CB Patrick Peterson (quad) and OT Jared Veldheer (knee) each returned to full practice Friday and have been removed from the injury report.

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.

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.

Cardinals | More touches for Andre Ellington?

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 21:38:12 -0700

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said he would like to give RB Andre Ellington more touches but has a hard time taking the ball out of the hands of RB David Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect Johnson to lose touches any time soon, and he should remain one of the top fantasy options at any positon all season long.

Cardinals | David Johnson is an every-down back

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 20:13:58 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson played 79 of a possible 82 snaps against the Buffalo Bills in Week 3. RBs Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington logged just three and one, respectively.

Fantasy Tip: There were some mild concerns after Chris Johnson (16 carries) got more work than David Johnson (12) in Week 2 that the former might have a larger role going forward, but Week 3 proves D. Johnson is among the few legit every-down backs in the NFL and a RB1 in all fantasy formats.

Cardinals | David Johnson will have help

Thu, 11 Aug 2016 13:29:38 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson will not be run into the ground early on in the regular season because RBs Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington will be able to help, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: That being said, David Johnson will be Arizona's go-to back as long as he's healthy. Johnson quickly became one of the most complete running backs in the NFL and should be taken in the first or second round of fantasy drafts with added value in PPR leagues.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington could return kicks

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 13:04:38 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington could return kickoffs because it would be hard to have three active running backs and none playing special teams.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington flashed his upside as a rookie and then averaged 6.4 yards per rushing attempt in 2015. However, he's behind David Johnson and likely Chris Johnson on the depth chart, which will limit his opportunities. He's worth a look late in deep drafts because of how dangerous he is with the ball in his hands, but an injury to another back is likely needed for Ellington to be a potential starting option.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington could play receiver

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 14:55:03 -0700

The majority of Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington's playing time may come at wide receiver, as long as RBs David Johnson and Chris Johnson are healthy, according to azcardinals.com's Darren Urban.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington has had injury issues throughout his career, and he'll likely be the No. 3 running back in 2016, so his fantasy value is really limited right now. He still shouldn't be totally overlooked, though, and taking a deep flier on Ellington in later rounds isn't the worst strategy.

Cardinals | David Johnson will be featured

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 14:45:34 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson is the unquestioned bellcow running back for the Cardinals this year, according to Darren Urban of azcardinals.com. RBs Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington will back up like they did for most of 2015.

Fantasy Tip: As long as David Johnson is healthy, he'll be the primary ball carrier in Arizona, and he deserves to be after a stellar rookie campaign. Draft Johnson as a top-five fantasy running back in all formats.

Cardinals | Cards could use two RBs at a time

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 19:11:17 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson is expected to get a lion's share of the work, but RBs Chris Johnson and Andre Ellington each have skillsets which could help the offense. In fact, head coach Bruce Arians hinted Tuesday, June 7, that two backs could be on the field at the same time. "When I first came here, that's something B.A. told me he wanted to do," Chris Johnson said. "It started off with me getting here late (in training camp), then Andre getting hurt early and me getting hurt. It was hard to get two of us on the field at one time, but that's something we've really been working hard on."

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals have three talented backs, but David Johnson is the one you'll want to pick first on draft day, with CJ2K as a pick for depth and Andre Ellington as a reserve in PPR formats.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington may be in trouble

Wed, 24 Feb 2016 18:15:31 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington could be on the roster bubble because he has not lived up to expectations at this point, according general manager John Keim. "Andre hasn't proved he can be a 20-25 touch-a-game guy. David Johnson has," Keim said. "If the guy doesn't fulfill expectations, it's time to move on."

Fantasy Tip: Ellington rushed for only 289 yards and three touchdowns during the regular season and three yards on four carries in the postseason. Ellington probably will be a change-of-pace back for some team next season but probably would not be more than a late-round pick in fantasy drafts.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington almost out of picture

Wed, 20 Jan 2016 19:17:21 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington ran three times for just three yards in the win against the Green Bay Packers last week, and he had no catches on one target. He will face the Carolina Panthers in the NFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has fallen out of favor in the desert, as David Johnson ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) almost exclusively handles the tailback chores. Even with a limited slate of games, there are better FantasyScore options at tailback on other teams, so avoid Ellington due to his lack of touches.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington not completely healthy

Wed, 06 Jan 2016 17:15:26 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) is not 100% at this point and probably will not be again until after the season, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington probably will have a similar role in the playoffs that he did in the final few weeks of the regular season and receive a handful of touches. Ellington could be a flex option in some leagues but would not be a top option.

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 17:56:16 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is listed as probable for the Week 17 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) likely will have a similar role this week that he did in Week 16, which means he will receive a handful of touches. Owners could consider him as a flex option but probably will be able to find better options to use.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington a limited participant

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 18:29:21 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: With David Johnson ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) leading the backfield, Ellington's ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) role has been reduced to a handful of carries. Even if he suits up, he isn't worth using at FantasyScore.
