The Texans claimed RB Andre Ellington off waivers. While he's a capable pass-catching back, landing with a team quarterbacked by Tom Savage makes Ellington a poor bet for fantasy value the rest of the way. We wouldn't bother rostering him outside of deep PPR leagues. RB Lamar Miller's value takes just a slight hit with this move. RB D'Onta Foreman, of course, is out for the year.
The Cardinals have released RB Andre Ellington. A big part of the offense just a little more than a month ago, Ellington had totaled just 7 touches in his last 3 games. He was a healthy scratch for Sunday's loss to the Texans. RB D.J. Foster stepped into Ellington's role in that one, finishing with 2 catches for 26 yards. He's not worth grabbing in redraft leagues. Ellington turns 29 in February and isn't a particularly good bet to re-emerge as a fantasy asset.
Cardinals RB Andre Ellington is inactive for today's game against Houston. He wasn't listed on the injury report, so it looks like he's a healthy scratch. Arizona is clearly planning to go extremely run-heavy with Adrian Peterson in this one.
Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quad) is active for today’s game against the 49ers. He was limited in practice all week, so it’s possible that he’s still not at 100%. Ellington does have a nice matchup against a defense that’s allowed the most receiving yards to RBs.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Cardinals RB Andre Ellington will play today against the 49ers. Ellington is questionable with a quad injury. He'll carry reception upside for deep PPR leagues as Arizona enters its 1st game with Drew Stanton in place of Carson Palmer.
