During Cardinals condition tests, HC Bruce Arians continues to insist Ellington will be a bellcow RB this season. He also states he needs to continue his development catching the ball. (Source: Darren Urban on Twitter)

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.

AZ says he'll get 25-30 touches per game. That's laughable, but he's in for a monster load.

Cards will build offense around him, but his size will keep him from true workhorse duties.

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.

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.
Fantasy Football Maniax | Jul 15th
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.
Fantasy Team Advice | Jul 10th
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.

Andre “Juke” Ellington  lived up to his nickname last season after earning regular playing time in his rookie season with the Arizona Cardinals. Despite only spending a portion of the season as anything close to being the featured back, Ellington managed to post 1,023 total yards. He only found paydirt four times, but that’s a number that is a certainty to increase. Ellingto...
