Ellington's touches per game might be down this season, but he has a great matchup vs the Saints. He was one of the best backs in the NFL last season when Carson Palmer was healthy.

- Sean Beazley, EDSFootball

 
Ellington has a ton of upside going against a Saints team that allowed the most receiving yards to running backs last year and was 29th overall against fantasy running backs.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

 
Matchup works and should start but how much will the Johnsons eat into his carries? He can be explosive, but he's clearly a risky play.
