The Cardinals plan to run Andre Ellington primarily at WR in 2017, according to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. Altering Ellington's role certainly makes sense. He has struggled to hold up physically in the backfield, and David Johnson emerged as 1 of the NFL's best RBs -- and an all-situations player -- last season. Ellington showed his playmaking chops most prominently while splitting the backfield with Rashard Mendenhall in his rookie campaign. Getting his skills on the field should help the offense. Somers reports that Ellington will still see some RB work. The question, of course, will be whether he can find enough touches to gain fantasy relevance. We're not betting on it. More likely, Ellington will flash with a few nice fantasy lines driven by big plays but be too inconsistent to be worth owning. We'd bet on Arizona also adding backfield depth. RB Chris Johnson's a free agent.

Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) is active for today’s game against the Packers. We’re expecting him to see 6-10 touches behind RB David Johnson. Ellington is just a RB3 flier.

Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) is expected to play against the Packers today, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.  He's been out the past 3 weeks and figures to return to a change-of-pace role behind RB David Johnson.  Ellington is just a RB3 or flex flier.  Johnson remains a high-end RB1.

Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers.  He put in 2 limited practices this week, and HC Bruce Arians expects Ellington to play.  We're not expecting him to see more than a handful of touches, though.  David Johnson will be Arizona's clear lead back -- and a high-upside RB1.

Injury Predictor

Ellington can be an effective real life player for the Cardinals. And he might even return some value if you can stash him in a deep league – or grab him late in a “best ball” setup. But barring injuries ahead of him, he’s a poor bet to see reliable weekly volume. If you take a flier here, it’s mainly because of Ellington’s talent.
