Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington is expected to receive 25-30 touches per game, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Huddle Up: It's the offseason, so take the coachspeak with a grain of salt. Ellington has definite fantasy value as the most talented back in Arizona, but at his current ADP of RB17--ahead of, among others, Shane Vereen and Ryan Mathews--he's no longer a value pick. The concern, which Arians has voiced before, is how Ellington will hold up to such a workload at 5-9 and 200 pounds.

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (thigh) was listed as a limited participant in practice for Wednesday, Dec. 18.

Huddle Up: Ellington is coming off a big game versus Tennessee. He has a much tougher matchup this week against Seattle but Ellington is on the flex play radar in PPR formats.

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (thigh) is dealing with a thigh bruise which forced him out of the overtime portion of the Week 15 game against the Tennessee Titans. As long as the tissue trauma to Ellington's thigh is relatively mild, and he is able to run without pain by late in the week, Ellington has a good chance of being able to play in the Week 16 game.

Huddle Up: Before leaving, the rookie had racked up his 2nd-highest yardage total of the season (158 on only 14 touches), but any Week 16 enthusiasm should be tempered by the formidable road matchup vs. the Seahawks' D, which has surrendered the third-fewest fantasy points to opposing RBs this season.

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 5.

Huddle Up: Ellington showed some progression after not practicing Wednesday and sitting out Week 13 but will likely need to show more if he's going to get back on the field this Sunday against the Rams.

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.

Huddle Up: Ellington missed last week's game and is questionable at best for Sunday's game versus St. Louis. Look for other backfield options.

Posted: 12/2/2013 2:31pm et

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (knee) could be held out Week 14 because head coach Bruce Arians said he wants to make sure Ellington is healthy before letting him play again.

Huddle Up: This could mean another start for Rashard Mendenhall, which could be valuable. The Cardinals get the Rams, who have been generous to opposing running backs at times this season.

Posted: 12/2/2013 10:37am et

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said Sunday, Dec. 1, that RB Andre Ellington (knee) was 'never close' to being able to play in the Week 13 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Huddle Up: Hopefully this doesn't mean more missed time for Ellington, but he has been stuck in a timeshare with Rashard Mendenhall regardless. Keep an eye on him this week.

Posted: 11/30/2013 11:49pm et

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (knee) said his knee is sore but believes he can play in the team's Week 13 game.

Huddle Up: Ellington has a good match-up against the Eagles and he would normally be a strong flex play in PPR formats. However, considering he's not 100 percent this week fantasy owners should look elsewhere.

Posted: 10/29/2013 10:12am et

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians was pleased with the performance of RB Andre Ellington in Week 8, but he noted that the rookie needs to improve his pass blocking if he wants 'to stay out there.'

Huddle Up: That's pretty much par for the course for rookie backs, the need for improved pass protection. Doesn't help that Ellington is a bit small to be taking on linebackers as well. But if he wants to stay on the field, it's a skill he'll need to pick up.

Posted: 10/7/2013 6:27pm et

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said he sees RB Andre Ellington playing 30 to 35 snaps per game and does not think his body could handle a heavier workload. Ellington will continue seeing time at running back and wide receiver.

Huddle Up: Ellington has a lot of upside. If he can wrest the starting gig from Rashard Mendenhall, he is going to be one of the better waiver wire pickups of the year.

Posted: 9/16/2013 12:20pm et

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington is working his way to becoming the team's third-down back. He has become a big part of the passing game.

Huddle Up: Ellington offers a change of pace to Rashard Mendenhall, and with Bruce Arians an extremely pass-happy coach the third-down role in Arizona certainly has fantasy value.

Posted: 8/15/2013 8:25pm et

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians indicated RB Andre Ellington (neck) will be able to play in the team's second preseason game.

Huddle Up: Green means go for Ellington, the team's 6th-round pick who is trying to make a move on the Cards' RB depth chart.

Posted: 8/13/2013 11:57pm et

Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (concussion) returned to practice Tuesday, Aug. 13.

Huddle Up: Ellington, the team's 6th-round pick out of Clemson, didn't play in the Cards' preseason opener and will need reps to make a move up the depth chart behind starter Rashard Mendenhall.
