In Saturday's preseason match-up against the San Diego Chargers, Andre Ellington ran for 12 yards on just two carries in an abbreviated appearance.

Fantasy Impact: The first carry by Ellington was the explosive one, as he ran for 11 yards during the opening drive of the game, however he finished with no catches on three targets. As the favorite to win the starting job at running back for Arizona, if Ellington can stay on the field there is very much RB1 potential.

Fantasy Impact: Ellington lack of carries in the preseason (five in two games) is nothing to worry about. The goal is for him to stay healthy and be the bell cow in the regular season. However, David Johnson may prove to be a handcuff for Ellington.

Ellington showed glimpses of top-10 fantasy ability, but ultimately his lack of size tore him down. He'll be a high risk/high reward guy again in 2015 and the presence of David Johnson doesn't help.

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.

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.

A player I will likely avoid this year. Worth a pick in PPR if he falls 3-4 rounds, which is unlikely

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

Have to ignore down production in '14 as he dealt with a very painful toe injury all year (if anything, credit him for toughness) - healthy again, should be a YFS dynamo in Arians system

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.

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.
