When asked about Andre Ellington's usage this season, Bruce Arians stated "I'd still like to see [Ellington] catch the football more, but carries-wise, yeah, he's had more than enough." (Source: arizonasports.com
Fantasy Impact: Ellington is already being handed the 4th largest workload in terms of carries and catches, and with his already diminished efficiency, one has to ponder if this is going to stretch him even thinner. Ellington was drafted to be a scat-back, and has exceeded those expectations, but is still built slightly and seems suited to handle 15-20 touches a week, not the 20+ he's received this year. He's already the 4th most targeted RB in the NFL this year, and while a spike in receptions is music to PPR managers ears, it could come at the cost of even further depressed efficiency, Ellington has a good week to get back on track ahead of him, as Seattle has been gashed by injuries.
