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.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington should be in uniform

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.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington limited

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 17:17:56 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) likely will have a similar role on offense like he did in Week 16. He could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore, but owners probably will be able to find more productive options to use.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington gets much-needed work

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 20:28:50 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington rushed seven times for 40 yards in the Week 16 game against the Green Bay Packers. He also added one grab for five yards on his only target.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington came on with a lopsided score, as Bruce Arians wanted to get him some much-needed work. However, the fantasy back of choice should still be David Johnson, with Kerwynn Williams second and Ellington a close third.

Cardinals | David Johnson's touches limited

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 20:27:33 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson carried nine times for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Week 16 game against the Green Bay Packers and he added three receptions for 88 yards on six targets. His touches were limited, but head coach Bruce Arians said Sunday, Dec. 27, that Johnson is fine and he just wanted to get RB Andre Ellington work.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson still totaled 127 yards from scrimmage with a touchdown despite the limited amount of touches, so he didn't hurt fantasy owners in the least. Facing an angry Seattle Seahawks defense in Week 17 might hurt his fantasy value, though.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington will be in uniform

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 12:22:49 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) is officially active for the Week 16 game against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) likely will play behind David Johnson and see a handful of touches during the game. He has missed several weeks because of the injury but may not be a great option at this point.
