Ellington showed a ton of potential in his rookie season, finishing with 1,023 career carries and four touchdowns. Ellington should be poised to claim the starting job in 2014 with veteran RB Rashard Mendenhall retiring from the NFL.Blount had stretches of brilliance, but he is still fumble prone and inconsistent. He is a great handcuff for owners of RB Le'Veon Bell and could vulture some touchdowns in the Steelers offense.

Now that Rashard Mendenhall is retiring, that leaves the electric Ellington to hopefully take the reigns as the starter. He probably won't get more than 60% of the work but that will be plenty for him to have some really nice games.Blount played very effective for the Patriots last season when his number was called and should have some role again in 2014. Now in Pittsburgh, Blount will be used primarily in short yardage and goal line work. We expect Bell to garner most of the touches.

Ellington has awesome upside and has PPR upside as well. He could potentially become the lead back in Arizona and be drafted very late in many leagues this year.
