    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Ellington has had a solid role in the passing game this season but is coming off a disappointing Week 9 game. He will be facing a tough Seattle Seahawks defense but can still be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Posted: 11/6/2017 4:13pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) fully participated in the team's walkthrough Monday, Nov. 6.

    Huddle Up: Ellington was limited to only 15 yards in Week 9 and should continue to have a solid role in the passing game against the Seattle Seahawks. He can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues this week despite the tough matchup.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 6:04am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) will play in Week 9's game against the San Francisco 49ers, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Ellington was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He is worthy of consideration as a low-end RB2 or flex option in PPR fantasy formats, even without the Cardinals having Carson Palmer under center.

  • Posted: 11/3/2017 2:49pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 3, and is listed as questionable for Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Ellington may be a game-time decision, so owners should check the inactive list before deciding on their lineups. He has a solid role in the passing game when he is healthy and should be considered a low-end No. 2 running back or flex option in point-per-reception leagues if he plays.

  • Posted: 11/2/2017 4:31pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) was a limited participant in practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Nov. 2.

    Huddle Up: Ellington didn't play in last week's contest in London, and the week before that, he was completely shut out in a game that saw more than 70 total points, so even if he does return here, he won't be a recommended option for any league. In addition, the whole offense figures to be downgraded after Carson Palmer was placed on injured reserve.

  • Posted: 11/1/2017 3:36pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 1.

    Huddle Up: Ellington received two weeks off to recover from the injury, so he should have a decent chance to play this week. He has had a big role in the passing game this season and can be a low-end No. 2 running back or flex option in point-per-reception leagues if he is active.

  • Posted: 10/21/2017 9:01pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) is not expected to play against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 7, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Ellington's absence should ensure that Adrian Peterson dominates the backfield touches for the second week in a row, and he can be deployed as a RB2 against the Rams.

  • Posted: 10/20/2017 7:09am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) is out of practice Friday, Oct. 20.

    Huddle Up: Ellington was a flex option against the Los Angeles Rams in PPR leagues, but scratch that notion. Kerwynn Williams probably isn't much of an option either.

  • Posted: 10/19/2017 1:04pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) was not able to practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Ellington was limited yesterday, so him not practicing is obviously not a good sign. He was targeted only once last week in what was an extremely unfavorable game script for the pass-catching back. He's too risky of a start even if he does play.

  • Posted: 10/18/2017 3:18pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quadriceps) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Ellington has been a big part of the team's passing game this season and has 28 receptions and 257 receiving yards in six games. He should be able to play in Week 7 and should be considered a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

  • Posted: 10/8/2017 2:19pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington caught nine passes for 65 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Ellington has become a big part of the passing game over the last few weeks and should continue to have that role moving forward. He can be a flex option in most leagues next week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

  • Posted: 10/4/2017 8:32pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington has garnered the most targets of any running back in the NFL through the season's first four weeks, drawing 30 throws from QB Carson Palmer. That's one ahead of Chicago Bears RB Tarik Cohen and Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey.

    Huddle Up: This is actually a very telling stat about Ellington's notable potential moving forward, as this also takes into account Week 1, which the Arizona tailback barely played in. Over the last two weeks, Ellington has racked up 14 catches on 22 total targets alone, and with David Johnson being out for possibly the rest of the fantasy season, that makes the five-year veteran a must-own commodity in all PPR formats and deep leagues.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 8:21pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington ran five times for 18 yards in Week 4 against the San Francisco 49ers and he added nine receptions for 86 yards on a game-high 14 targets.

    Huddle Up: Ellington totaled 14 touches to 16 for Chris Johnson, as head coach Bruce Arians searches for the right combination with David Johnson on the shelf. Ellington has been far more productive for fantasy owners, particularly in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 9/25/2017 9:43pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington led the team in rushing yards with 22 on just five carries in the team's Week 3 game Monday, Sept. 25, against the Dallas Cowboys. He also added five receptions for 59 yards.

    Huddle Up: It looks like the once mega-popular fantasy commodity will be getting another shot at glory based on how the running game was utilized in this one, as Ellington played considerably more snaps than both Chris Johnson and Kerwynn Williams. It was flashes of the Ellington from years ago when he first broke into the league and was regularly involved in the passing game. After two nothing performances to begin his season, Ellington has revitalized his value and should not be on any waiver wires.

  • Posted: 9/12/2017 9:05pm ET

    Adding more context to an earlier report, Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians told Sirius XM NFL Radio Tuesday, Sept. 12, he is hopeful RB David Johnson (wrist) can return 'by Thanksgiving or Christmas.' In the meantime, Arians hinted RB Andre Ellington would be the player most likely to carry the load for the Cardinals in Johnson's absence.

    Huddle Up: This comes as a surprise in that Kerwynn Williams is Johnson's direct backup, but Arians told Sirius XM that Ellington 'was the guy that we drafted David Johnson to play behind' and Arizona 'kind of built (the offense) around Andre a few years back' before Johnson's emergence. It's an extremely optimistic take from the coach, but one owners should be willing to take at face value at the moment. While this most likely will be a committee attack, Ellington appears to be the one to grab in fantasy.

  • Posted: 6/7/2017 11:25am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington is moving back to running back, and the team will be looking for him to have a tougher running style, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

    Huddle Up: Ellington probably will compete for the backup running back job during training camp after the team briefly moved him to wide receiver. Ellington likely will receive limited touches in 2017 and should only be a late-round option.

  • Posted: 5/21/2017 8:22pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Andre Ellington said the hardest part of his transition from running back to wide receiver is the change in terminology.

    Huddle Up: Ellington can be a big-play weapon, but the move to receiver doesn't guarantee playing time. He doesn't need to be drafted at this point.

  • Posted: 5/10/2017 9:27am ET

    Arizona Cardinals WR Andre Ellington is getting more comfortable with the nuances of being a receiver and has the fluidity and ability to run routes with the right angle and bend, according to QB Carson Palmer. 'Everything changes when he?s got to line up and there are 11 guys across the ball and he, post-snap, has to make decisions. That?s difficult. But he runs really good routes, and the thing that really excites me is, once he gets the ball in his hands, what is he going to do with it? He?s not a receiver, he?s a running back when he has the ball in his hands,' Palmer said.

    Huddle Up: Ellington is a wild-card in fantasy and reality. The odds are against him considering Larry Fitzgerald, John Brown and J.J. Nelson are pretty much locked into the first three spots on the depth chart. With that said, he has more value to the Cardinals as a player who could be their third running back and fifth receiver. Barring a catastrophic number of injuries at either position, however, Ellington will have a hard time being useful in fantasy this year.

  • Posted: 3/17/2017 5:56am ET

    Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals RB Andre Ellington landed a one-year deal with a $775,000 base salary.

    Huddle Up: Ellington is expected to be used more as a receiver in the backfield, but David Johnson's emergence as potentially the best RB in fantasy limits Ellington to possible flex usage.
