Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington (foot) produced weak totals for the second consecutive weekend.
Insight: Ellington rushed 19 times for 42 yards and caught four balls for 24 yards. We don't like the way things are trending of late.
 
11/14/2014 4:39:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington (foot) is probable for Week 11 against the Lions.
Insight: Ellington was limited in practice all week, but it will not hold him back from starting Sunday. He will be a borderline RB1 against the solid run-defense of Detroit.
 
11/10/2014 10:09:00 AM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington couldn't get much going this weekend.
Insight: Ellington's foot issue didn't appear to be a factor, but in 23 touches he amassed just 42 yards. He did run one in from three yards out, so fantasy owners did get double-digit points.
 
11/2/2014 5:14:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington is the definition of a workhorse back.
Insight: Fantasy owners got a scare before the season started with Ellington's foot issue. He has rarely been limited in any game. In Week 9 against the Cowboys, he had 25 touches, gained 134 yards and scored.
 
11/2/2014 11:39:00 AM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Insight: That's not really anything new. Backup running back Stepfan Taylor, however, is inactive, so Ellington's chances of scoring go up. Not that that really should effect any lineups as Ellington should be starting in all leagues.
 
10/27/2014 10:53:00 AM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington rushed for 71 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Ellington is usually also involved in the passing game, but he wasn't a big part in this one which limited his fantasy value.
 
10/23/2014 11:51:00 AM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington (partial tendon tear) says his foot isn't going to feel better until after the season is over., according to Cardinals reporter Mike Jurecki.
Insight: Ellington's injury isn't hurting his workload, he's averaging 26 touches and 108 combined yards per game, but he's only averaging 3.7 ypc in 2014 versus 5.5 ypc last season.
 
10/22/2014 3:57:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington (ribs, foot) was limited during Wednesday's practice session.
Insight: There does not seem to be any issues with Ellington's injuries, putting him on track to be an RB1 this weekend against the Eagles.
 
10/20/2014 10:07:00 AM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington saw another full workload, rushing 24 times and seeing nine targets.
Insight: Ellington rushed for 88 yards (3.7 ypc) and caught six for 72 yards, but failed to get into the end zone. Fantasy owners love the workload as long as his foot injury doesn't get any worse. They can't be happy that backup RB Stepfan Taylor scored twice.
 
10/13/2014 10:35:00 AM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington saw another full workload.
Insight: Ellington rushed for 67 yards on 19 carries and caught six balls, but for just 26 yards.
 
10/10/2014 5:31:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington is a solid RB1 despite the quarterback situation in Arizona.
Insight: Ellington probably sees his stock rise because third-string quarterback Logan Thomas might start. The Redskins defense hasn't allowed many fantasy points to opposing backs this year, but they did allowed 225 rushing yards to Seattle at home. Ellington should see more than 20 touches on Sunday.
 
10/8/2014 8:06:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington was limited in Wednesday's practice because of his foot.
Insight: Ellington has not fully practiced all season because of his foot, so this really isn't a concern. Washington is a tough matchup, but Marshawn Lynch gained over 100 yards of offense and caught a touchdown pass, so Ellington is a low-end RB1 or high-end RB2.
 
10/6/2014 9:29:00 AM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington couldn't get anything going in the running game, but his pass-catching skills saved fantasy owners.
Insight: Ellington rushed 16 times for just 32 yards, but caught four balls for 112 yards, including an 81-yard catch and run for a score. That's the advantage of having a RB who is also part of the passing packages.
 
9/14/2014 4:32:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington continues to produce despite the bad foot.
Insight: He received 16 touches and put up 101 total yards. It would have been a better day save for a touchdown vulture by Jonathan Dwyer.
 
9/14/2014 4:22:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington (foot) will continue to miss practices while dealing with the injury, but unless we hear differently we will expect him to play on Sunday.
Insight: He received 16 touches and put up 101 total yards in Week 2. It would have been a better day save for a touchdown vulture by Jonathan Dwyer.
 
9/11/2014 1:30:00 PM
Description: Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians is pleased with the way running back Andre Ellington's foot responded to Monday night's 18 touches.
Insight: "A lot less sore than he though he was going to be," Arians said according to azcardinals.com. "It's much better than we hoped." Elllington missed practice on Wednesday, but he should get limited reps by Friday. As long as Arians keeps feeding Ellington the ball, which he should, plug Ellington into your lineup.
 
9/9/2014 3:36:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington (foot) survived Week 1 without his foot inury getting any worse.
Insight: He's back in a walking boot as he tries to get ready for Week 2. Ellington admitted he wasn't as quick as normal. "I had some quickness going from right to left, but it was a little harder going from left to right," he said after the game. Fantasy owners who jumped on Jonathan Dwyer came up empty in Week 1.
 
9/8/2014 9:20:00 PM
Description: Cardinals running back Andre Ellington (foot) is active for the season opener.
Insight: Despite all the rumors, including one that had him out 4-6 weeks, Ellington is in the lineup. He will likely be limited in some capacity so fantasy owners should start someone else if possible.
 
9/8/2014 2:45:00 PM
Description: XTRA 910 Arizon'a Mike Jurecki reports the Cardinals plan to work out Andre Ellington (foot) "hours before kickoff".
Insight: It appears Ellington is a true game-time dicision. If you were still planning on starting Ellington, running back Jonathan Dwyer is really your only other option. Even if Ellington plays, he will likely be limited in some capacity. Start someone else if possible.
 
9/6/2014 4:20:00 PM
Description: The latest rumor out of Arizona has Cardinals running back Andre Ellington not needing surgery after being examined by multiple doctors and possibly even playing Monday night, according to beat reporter Darren Urban.
Insight: Ellington's status for Week 1 is up in the air. The problem for fantasy owners is that it's the last game of the weekend and unless you have Jonathan Dwyer as a handcuff, you won't have many options should he not play.
