2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
As the sole owner of the starting running back spot in Arizona after the offseason retirement of Rashard Mendenhall, Andre Ellington has suddenly become one of the most talked-about names in all of fantasy football. Ellington’s impressive 5.5 yards per attempt in 2013 were an impressive number, especially considering that it was his rookie season. There’s plenty to like about Ellington’s game, which many have compared to the likes of C.J. Spiller and even LeSean McCoy. He’s a shifty back with big play potential, as evidenced by his eight rushes of 20+ yards. But his biggest asset for fantasy owners may be in that he could be one of the most utilized pass-catchers out of the backfield in the entire league this season. His 39 receptions in 2013 don’t appear to be extraordinary on the surface, but when you consider that he only touched the ball 157 times, you can begin to see how often he was catching passes as opposed to being used as a pure runner while being stuck behind Mendenhall on the depth chart for much of the season. It has been a long time since another player has rivaled Larry Fitzgerald for the highest-drafted fantasy player on the Arizona roster, but as Ellington continues to gain hype, he continues to rise up the rankings, creeping ever closer to the veteran receiver on overall ADP rankings. Buyer beware that Ellington has never taken over 250 total touches in his professional or college career, but that could be a good thing as his body does not have the wear and tear that many other backs do. Expect weeks of frustration from Ellington, but also weeks where he is a big-time points producer. Draft him as a mid-level RB2 and hope that he can stay healthy, because that may be the only thing that prevents him from finishing as a top-12 fantasy back in 2014.

Comment: 250 touches and RB2 status is within reach.

News From The Past 90 Days
RB Dwyer latest to be tied to domestic violence
Arizona running back arrested Wednesday
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Sep 17, 6:28 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Cardinals running back Jonathan Dywer was arrested in Arizona on Wednesday on charges related to domestic violence. Dwyer has been charged with aggravated assault and preventing someone from calling 911, the CBS Evening News has reported. (CBSSports.com)

FFToday's Take: Here we go again. Given the way other players have been held out in recent weeks it is very likely that Jonathan Dwyer will receive similar treatment over the next few days. Stepfan Taylor is the next in line behind starter Andre Ellington.


Injury Ellington makes it through Wk 1 with no setbacks
Likely won't be 100% anytime soon
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Sep 9, 10:00 am

Arizona Cardinals
"When I warmed up beforehand," Andre Ellington said when asked when he knew he would play. "I didn't run after I injured it this week. I didn't run at all, but I was able to get out there before the game and give it a shot." Ellington wasn't 100 percent in the Cardinals' 18-17 win, but he was still Arizona's most effective running back, carrying the ball 13 times for 53 yards and catching five passes for 27. (Arizona Republic)

FFToday's Take: Ellington admits he doesn't have the same quickness moving from left to right and the foot is likely to hamper him in the coming weeks. As a result, Ellington's fantasy ceiling is capped at a RB2 level until he regains his full lateral movement. Expect him to be limited in practice this week but give it a go on Sunday.


Injury Ellington a gametime decision
Listed as questionable
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Sep 6, 11:00 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Arizona Cardinals starting running back Andre Ellington will be a game-time decision after being limited in Saturday's practice, coach Bruce Arians said. He was officially listed as questionable on the Cardinals' final injury report of the week after getting an MRI on Thursday on a foot injury. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Ellington was limited in practice on Saturday and it appears no surgery is needed at this time. "It's one of those things that every day when you wake up it could be different," Arians said. If you have to set your lineup early, it would be best leave Ellington out of it. The risk of him ending up on the Inactive list is too great. Jonathan Dwyer and Stepfan Taylor would fill in for Ellington if he sits.


Injury Andre Ellington has MRI on injured foot
Limited in practice on Thursday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 5, 2:00 am

Arizona Cardinals
Running back Andre Ellington practiced on a limited basis (Thursday) because of a foot injury. Reporters' access to players and coaches came before the injury report was issued Thursday, so more information was not available. Hearing Andre Ellington was dealing with some discomfort in his left foot the past week, irritated his foot during practice on Thursday #MRI. (Mike Jurecki via Twitter)

FFToday's Take: We'll have to wait for clarity from the team which I'm sure will be coming later today but this should fan the flames regarding Ellington's durability concerns. Jonathan Dwyer is next in line for carries should Ellington miss any playing time.
