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.

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

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 11:57:39 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (hip, foot) has been ruled out for Week 14, according to head coach Bruce Arians. RB Stepfan Taylor will be the starting running back for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor is receiving the start but Marion Grice should also receive some playing time at the position. It is not known how the carries will be split between them, which makes both players a risky option to use. Taylor costs $3,200 on FantasyScore, while Grice costs $3,300. Owners may want to consider using other options this week.
