Fantasy Impact: In addition to increasing Ellington's touches, there have been several team reports indicating the Cardinals will occasionally move Ellington out in the slot. It appears the team will scheme to get Ellington out in space to utilize his superior quickness.

Cardinal GM Steve Keim reported Thursday that RB Andre Ellington looks as though he added approximately 8-10 pounds in the off season. (Source: Mike Jurecki on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: Keim also compared Ellington to Jamaal Charles and Chris Johnson in terms of size and skill. Ellington appears to be preparing for the expected increase in workload this season, although we would not expect him to reach 25-30 touches per game as HC Bruce Arians stated earlier this year. Ellington has RB1 upside, but with the Cards expected to use Jonathan Dwyer/Stepfan Taylor in short yardage/goal line packages, he remains more of an RB2. Cards begin practices tomorrow and we will keep an eye on Ellington's usage.
