Cardinals | Ellington could be out a while

Fri, 05 Sep 2014 08:35:23 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) aggravated his left foot injury in practice Thursday, Sept. 4. He underwent an MRI and could miss a significant amount of time.

Fantasy Tip: Bad news for the breakout candidate. We'll have an update, but start making contingency plans. Jonathan Dwyer is the fantasy football replacement to target. At $3,700 (a meager 7.4% of your cap), he's a good dice roll in FantasyScore. But Stepfan Taylor might be more heavily involved as well, so Dwyer may not be an ideal play.

Cardinals | Stepfan Taylor listed as No. 2 RB

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 17:10:08 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington tops the team's first depth chart of the preseason, with RBs Jalen Parmelee and Stepfan Taylor listed on the second-team offense. RBs Jonathan Dwyer and Zach Bauman are listed on the third-team offense, with RBs Robert Hughes and Damian Thigpen on the fourth team.

Fantasy Tip: The battle between Dwyer and Taylor is expected to be one of the more hotly contested in Arizona's camp. The winner of the battle (and don't count out Parmelee either!) will have some fantasy appeal as an RB3 or flex option in leagues of 12 or more teams, while the lose of the battle will only be worth a flier as a reserve in the final rounds on draft day.

Cardinals | Stepfan Taylor works with first-team

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 20:23:50 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Stepfan Taylor worked with the first-team offense in place of RB Andre Ellington (neck) Tuesday, July 29. Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com believes the move means that Taylor is ahead of RB Jonathan Dwyer in the battle for the No. 2 RB job.

Fantasy Tip: Should Ellington go down with an injury during the year or prove unable to handle the bulk of the carries, it looks like Taylor could be the back to grab. Keep his name in mind heading into the season.

Cardinals | No clear backup to Andre Ellington

Tue, 15 Jul 2014 19:42:26 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Stepfan Taylor and RB Jonathan Dwyer will both be used to spell RB Andre Ellington this season, according to ESPN.com's Josh Weinfuss.

Fantasy Tip: Unless Taylor or Dwyer can separate and become the clear No. 2 back, it is going to be tough to know which player is worth owning as a potential handcuff to Ellington.

Cardinals | Jonathan Dwyer endearing himself to coach

Thu, 12 Jun 2014 16:00:40 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Jonathan Dwyer received praise from head coach Bruce Arians during organized team activities for his pass-catching abilities. Dwyer also is effective in pass blocking, which is something that Arians covets in his offense.

Fantasy Tip: Stepfan Taylor is expected to be the main complementary back to Andre Ellington in 'Zona's backfield this year, but Dwyer could gain more traction if he continues to display the qualities that Arians likes. Dwyer would be more valuable in PPR leagues, but for now, he's undraftable.

Cardinals | Bruce Arians elaborates on Andre Ellington's role

Fri, 28 Mar 2014 11:11:09 -0700

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.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington to be focus of offense

Fri, 21 Feb 2014 07:33:13 -0800

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.

Cardinals | Rashard Mendenhall doubtful

Fri, 25 Oct 2013 12:36:46 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Rashard Mendenhall (toe) is listed as doubtful for Week 8. RB Andre Ellington likely will start at running back with RB Stepfan Taylor being the No. 2 running back. Head coach Bruce Arians said RB Ryan Williams could be active for the game, but that would be a game-time decision.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington probably will receive most of the work at running back if Mendenhall is out for the game. Ellington should be seen as a No. 2 running back or flex option for most owners this week.
