Arizona has never run the football more than 40.7 percent of the time in two seasons with Bruce Arians/Harold Goodwin at the helm of the offense. the Cardinals had the fourth-worst run blocking offensive line last season. The additions of OG Mike Iupati and OT D.J. Humphries should help this unit improve in 2015.

The addition of veteran Chris Johnson would eat into his carries.Ellington's fragile frame concerning as well.

- Sablich Brothers, The NY Times

 
Ellington is just not able to be reliable due to injury issues. If you do draft him you have to grab his hand-cuff in David Johnson. Assuming Ellington stays healthy he should see near 1,000 yards and 5 TDs, but the injury risk here is very high.

- James Hatfield, Hatty Waiver Wire Guru

 
Ellington never really had a time where he wasn't playing hurt last season, so there is optimism that he'll have more burst and elusiveness this year. The main problem will be rookie David Johnson who is also a good receiver and heavier than Ellington. The Cards did beef up their O-line and will likely run more this season with Ellington and Johnson, but there is risk that they'll cancel each other out.

- Chet Gresham, WalterFootball

 
I question Ellington's ability to stay healthy at 20.5 touches per game, which is what he averaged when playing in 2014. He is still young and has a ton of upside, but injuries are a major concern for Ellington. The signing of RB Chris Johnson will take some carries away, but Ellington is going to be the most productive option in the RBBC.
