Cardinals | Andre Ellington not going to go full?

Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington is expected to draw the start in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons with RB Rashard Mendenhall (toe) doubtful. Still, head coach Bruce Arians, offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin and general manager Steve Keim each want to be careful not to overuse the rookie because of his slight build. "I look at him the same way," Arians said Friday, Oct. 25. "It's still a situational...I don't use the word 'committee', but we'll monitor how many times he carries."

Fantasy Tip: While Ellington should see a more regular role, and is certainly worth a look as a low-end RB2, must-start RB3 or solid flex play, don't expect to see him get more than 20-25 touches, which is what the brass seems most comfortable giving him.
