Fantasy Tip: Ellington will have to fight through his foot injury all year, but it hasn't slowed him down at all recently; he's had 20-plus carries in each of the last two weeks. He's an excellent back to own in PPR league such as FantasyScore, too, and his matchup against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9 is a positive one.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington's foot still sore

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 19:52:59 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) said the partially torn tendon in his foot probably won't feel better until after the year. "I understand it's never going to feel good," Ellington said. "It's probably not going to feel good until January or February or whenever the season is over with."

Fantasy Tip: Despite the nagging injury, Ellington has topped 90 yards from scrimmage in three straight games, and his versatility as a runner and a pass-catcher makes him a steady fantasy option. The Cardinals have a solid matchup in Week 8 against a Philadelphia defense ranked outside the top 20 against the run and the pass, and Ellington ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) should push 100 total yards yet again.

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 06:21:35 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Stepfan Taylor vultured two touchdowns in the red zone Sunday, Oct. 19. RB Andre Ellington said he called Taylor in at the goal line and could have stayed in the game, but Taylor deserved the goal line love.

He will take up 14.6% of the cap ($7,300) at FantasyScore, and he could be primed for one of his best performances of the year.

Wed, 08 Oct 2014 17:05:37 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington has been taking it easy in mid-week practices, but he hasn't missed any game time since suffering his injury back in early September.

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 14:23:40 -0700

Cardinals | Andre Ellington rests injury

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 18:11:35 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington has been resting his foot during mid-week practices so far this season, but he has to miss any practice time. The team will want to be especially careful with his health with the uncertainty of Jonathan Dwyer and his legal situation, so don't expect Ellington to push it too terrible hard in practice. However, Ellington should be fine for game day.

Cardinals | Foot still bothers Andre Ellington

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 23:28:19 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) has soreness in his left foot but it has gone down considerably from a week ago. Cardinals coach Bruce Arians hopes Ellington can practice Thursday, Sept. 18 and Friday, Sept. 19 before the game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Tip: Considering Ellington ran for over 100 yards against the New York Giants last week, he looked pretty good on the field. Still, foot issues can be a game-time problem if they flare up, so keep an eye on him.

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 18:28:11 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) carried 15 times for 91 yards in the Week 2 game against the New York Giants, and he added one reception for 10 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington has been a bit of an injury concern over the first two weeks, but he looked pretty good in the road win despite his bum wheel. If you're an Ellington owner in weekly fantasy, it's a good idea to have Jonathan Dwyer on your roster just in case. FantasyScore owners can trust Ellington in Week 3.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington active today

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 09:16:36 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) is active Sunday, Sept. 14.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown if he will be limited, though. With QB Carson Palmer (shoulder) out, it's possible that Ellington and Jonathan Dwyer could receive more carries. Ellington is a solid RB2 at $5,500 (11% of your cap) on FantasyScore this week. Dwyer is more of a speculative flex play at $4,400 (8.8%) in Week 2, but he receives a boost in fantasy with Palmer out.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington to be questionable

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 13:51:15 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) is listed as questionable on the injury report for Week 2 against the New York Giants, but Ellington believes he will play Sunday, Sept. 14. "Sunday is game day so I'll be ready," Ellington said. "The adrenaline will be flowing. I'll be good to go."

Fantasy Tip: Ellington ($5,500; 11.0% of cap) won't be 100 percent in this one, but he could still present a nice return on investment in Week 2. He's a bit of a risk, though.

Cardinals | Arizona high on Andre Ellington

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 13:33:17 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington has what it takes to be the team's version of Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles, according to general manager Steve Keim. "When you look at body type, and his frame, and the way he runs the football, I think there's a chance he can end up being like a Chris Johnson, like a Jamaal Charles," Keim said. "That's the kind of guy I see Andre Ellington being in the future for us."

Fantasy Tip: Ellington has the talent to be big for Arizona. But right now, he's dealing with a foot injury that he admitted has affected his cutting ability. He's a risky start at FantasyScore in Week 2 for a price of $5,500 (11.0% of cap) against the New York Giants.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington bounced back well

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 05:19:46 -0700

Updating previous reports, Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) was a lot less sore than anticipated after playing in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: That's great news for Ellington, who might be undervalued in Week 2. He'll cost you $5,500 (11% of your cap) on FantasyScore and is a good RB2 against the New York Giants.

Cardinals | No practice for Andre Ellington

Wed, 10 Sep 2014 16:49:26 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners will want to hold off plugging Ellington into the lineup for Week 2 until he can make it through a full practice. He played in Week 1 after being a question mark, but he is still just too risky.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington should play

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 14:07:15 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) is expected to play this week against the New York Giants. Ellington will likely wear a boot to protect and rest his foot but should be back on the field come Thursday and Friday in order to be ready for Sunday's game.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Ellington may be wearing a boot as the season progresses, but should still be able to go on game days. While he may still be splitting time with Jonathan Dwyer, he could still be worth the $5,500 asking price against a vulnerable New York Giants defense.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington wasn't full speed

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 09:20:48 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot), who ran 13 times for 53 yards and caught all five of the passes thrown his way for 27 yards in the Week 1 victory over the San Diego Chargers Monday, Sept. 8, said he wasn't full speed in the game after injuring his left foot last week. "I wasn't full speed," he said. "My quickness, I had some quickness going from right to left, but it was a little harder going from left to right." Head coach Bruce Arians said Ellington cramped up in the fourth quarter but played "pretty good." Ellington said he expects his foot to be sore on a short week heading into Week 2 against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: It was a bit of a surprise that Ellington suited up at all, so that in itself has to be considered a win for his owners. The Giants look to be a good matchup for Ellington in Week 2, but if he remains less than 100 percent, his FantasyScore pricetag of $5,500 (11.0% of salary cap) may not be as appealing. He may be best served in a flex spot this week.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington sees 18 touches

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 22:56:19 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (ankle, foot) was able to play in the Week 1 game against the San Diego Chargers, and he posted a game-high 13 carries and 53 rushing yards while also adding five receptions for 27 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington was a risky play due to his game-time decision status, but he was the best back on the field for Arizona. FantasyScore owners should still be careful with him going forward, as he is not 100 percent.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington active for Week 1

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 18:14:10 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) is active for the team's Week 1 game Monday, Sept. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington is set to become the team's main back this season, but he might not be the best option in FantasyScore in Week 1. He will take up 14% of your cap ($7,000), which is a lot to invest in a running back that will be playing on a foot that probably isnít 100 percent.

Cardinals | No surgery for Andre Ellington

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 12:06:33 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) will not need surgery after visiting three different foot/ankle specialists. One option for Ellington is to wear a boot for two to three weeks until the muscles strengthen. There is still a possibility of surgery after the season as there is a fear that Ellington may have a tear from a previous injury.

Fantasy Tip: It's best to play the wait and see game with Ellington for now. If he does miss extended time, Jonathan Dwyer is the handcuff to pursue and could be a cheap option on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington limited Sunday

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 08:17:54 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) was limited again in the walkthrough Sunday, Sept. 7, according to general manager Steve Keim. The team will evaluate him in pre-game warmups Monday, Sept. 8, before determining whether he will play or not.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington carries a lot of risk at $7,000 (14% of your cap) on FantasyScore for Week 1. Jonathan Dwyer is an excellent bargain buy at $3,700 (7.4% of your cap) as a flex option in Week 1.

Cardinals | No surgery for Andre Ellington

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 16:11:02 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (ankle, foot) consulted with three foot/ankle specialists and received different opinions, but all agreed no surgery is needed at this time. His injury is to the peroneus longus tendon. The tendon wraps down and under the foot by way of the cuboid bone. The options are having him wear a walking boot for two to three weeks to strengthen the muscle before returning, or not wear a boot and play in Week 1 against the San Diego Chargers Monday, Sept. 8. The team could brace the arch/foot and test him in pregame warmups.

Fantasy Tip: Ellington is considered questionable for Monday's game. While he wants to play, it is likely he does not go and Jonathan Dwyer gets a lion's share of the carries. At 14% of the cap in FantasyScore, Ellington is just too risky to use in an active lineup. Dwyer is an excellent flex option at $3,700 (7.4% of your cap) in Week 1.

Cardinals | Good news for Andre Ellington

Sat, 06 Sep 2014 19:01:01 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington's (foot) foot injury is not considered a long-term issue, head coach Bruce Arians said Saturday, Sept. 6. Arians said he was "not at all" concerned about the injury sidelining Ellington long term.

Fantasy Tip: Although Arians seems confident that Ellington will be back up to speed sooner rather than later, he is still questionable for Week 1. He is also a risky pick in FantasyScore given that he will take up 14% percent of the cap ($7,000). It's tough to trust that much money to a running back with an injured foot.

Sat, 06 Sep 2014 15:40:37 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) was limited in practice Saturday, Sept. 6, and is questionable for Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: He's expected to be a game-time decision for Week 1. At $7,000 (14% of your cap) on FantasyScore, he's a risky RB1. RB Jonathan Dwyer ($3,700 - 7.4% of your cap on FantasyScore) makes an intriguing value buy this week if Ellington can't go.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington attends practice

Sat, 06 Sep 2014 11:44:33 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) attended the open portion of practice Saturday, Sept. 6. Ellington was reportedly dressed to practice but was only seen catching on the sideline.

Fantasy Tip: It could certainly sound worse for Ellington. Even if he does play, he will likely be limited and is a risky investment at $7,000 on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Andre Ellington not at practice

Fri, 05 Sep 2014 13:44:03 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) was not present at practice Friday, Sept. 5, and he's scheduled to be looked at by a local foot specialist. It's unknown if he'll be able to play in Week 1 against the San Diego Chargers Monday, Sept. 8. If he can't go, RB Jonathan Dwyer will start in his place. Dwyer had 49 carries for 197 yards with the Pittsburgh Steelers last season.

Fantasy Tip: With the Cardinals playing Monday, the no-brainer thing to do is sit Ellington, who is probably highly unlikely to play at this point. Dwyer has familiarity with head coach Bruce Arians from their days in Pittsburgh, so he'll see the first chance to replace Ellington. Look to acquire Dwyer immediately if you own Ellington.

Cardinals | Ellington could miss 4-6 weeks?

Fri, 05 Sep 2014 10:46:34 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) could be out for four to six weeks or longer, depending on his prognosis. His timetable for a return will depend mainly on how quickly he heals.

Fantasy Tip: It's terrible news for anyone that spent a high draft pick on Ellington. You can be comforted to know that he at least isn't expected to need surgery. Regardless, you'll have to bench him for Week 1 and likely several more weeks. Jonathan Dwyer should be your first target on the waiver wire if you own Ellington, but we wouldn't advise starting him even though he's dirt cheap in FantasyScore this week ($3,700, 7.4% of cap).

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot), who underwent an MRI exam on his foot Thursday, Sept. 4, has been prescribed rest. However, he's still hoping that there is a chance he can suit up in Week 1 against the San Diego Chargers Monday, Sept. 8.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that it looks like Ellington won't require surgery, but this contradictory news leaves his owners in a frustrating state of limbo before Monday night. To be safe, avoid his $7,000 price tag in FantasyScore.

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.
