The news on Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot) has been much rosier today than it was on Friday. After consulting with 3 separate foot specialists, it was determined that he does not need surgery. Ellington actually got in a limited practice on Saturday and has been deemed a game-time decision for Monday night's tilt against the Chargers. HC Bruce Arians says he's "optimistic" about Ellington's availability. That still puts fantasy owners in a tough spot for Week 1. We won't know Ellington's status until about 9 pm ET on Monday night, and he'll be a risky fantasy start if he is active. Avoiding the situation is your best bet. If you do want to wait on Ellington, you need to have either Jonathan Dwyer or Danny Woodhead rostered as a late replacement. Longer term, it sounds like this foot won't be as big an issue as initially thought. Ellington still carries risk but will have top-10 upside whenever he's on the field.
The Buccaneers have reached a deal with RB Andre Ellington. The 30-year-old started his career in Arizona under new Bucs HC Bruce Arians. They showed us then that Ellington's not a workhorse. There's room for him to work into a Tampa committee, however. Last year's 2nd-round pick, Ronald Jones, returns, and Peyton Barber (a restricted free agent) will likely remain in the mix. Signing Ellington certainly shouldn't keep the Bucs from making any other backfield moves this offseason. We'll see what this depth chart looks like after the NFL Draft and early free agency.
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.
