Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
I keep moving him up; his floor is higher than that of several other RBs on this tier.
Proved his worth in New England last year. A premium handcuff.
  
Sablich Brothers
The New York Times
Cards will build offense around him, but his size will keep him from true workhorse duties.
Steelers label Blount as co-starter with Bell. Surprisingly favored in GL reps thus far.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
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.
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
3 rushing TDs and 1 receiving TD in his rookie season. Starting to grow on me and I would be happy to have him as my RB2 this season.
 
  
Smitty
Fantasy Football Starters
Here is your breakout RB5 if there is one that ranks outside of the top 25 overall fantasy players. Yes, he has that kind of ceiling! Just don't reach for him, as risk is built into the investment if you draft him near his ADP (which is steal territory, and often outside of 30 overall).
 
  
Staff Rankings
FFLockerRoom
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.
  
Matthew Hill
Fantasy Team Advice
The Cardinals seem committed to getting the ball into Ellington's hands. If Ellington averages 20 touches per game and comes close to his gaudy 2013 yards-per-carry average of 5.5, he would offer top-ten upside at a reasonable ADP.
 
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Andre Ellington should get all of the work he can handle after impressing everyone with his 5.5 yards per carry and 39 receptions on limited snaps.
LaGarette Blount will see only limited work behind workhorse LeíVeon Bell and will not be relevant outside of bye weeks unless Bell suffers an injury.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
HC Bruce Arians has shouted his plans for Ellington from the rooftops. Some of the terms used by Arians were workhouse, feature back, 25-30 touches per game, etc. In 2013, the Cardinals averaged 20.0 PPG in Weeks 1-8 before jumping the offensive assault to 27.3 PPG in Weeks 9-17. The offensive trend is relative to the entire team becoming more comfortable with Ariansí approach and we expect the production to carry into 2014. Expect Ellington to be heavily involved in both the passing attack and running game for the Cardinals this season. 25-30 touches per game is a bit advantageous and we donít expect him to be there. However, the 275-300 touch mark on the season isnít completely out of line for Ellington. In PPR Leagues, Ellington will be a stud. In other leagues, we consider him a solid RB2.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
AZ says he'll get 25-30 touches per game. That's laughable, but he's in for a monster load.
 
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
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.
 
  
Brandon Funston
Yahoo! Sports
Preseason work backs up ARI claims that AE will be a fully featured workhorse, so the only real worry now is whether he can hold up
 
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Ellington is the lead back in a pass first offense, but he's also a very capable pass catcher. He won't be pushing the pile over from one-yard out, but he will have plenty of looks in space and his ability puts his upside out of sight.
