Who Should I Start? - Week 1
Andre Ellington or Willis McGahee
No experts recommend Willis McGahee over Andre Ellington
Ave Targets / Game
“Update 9/5: Ellington sat out Thursday's practice with a foot injury. With this starting time, it's probably worth adding Jonathan Dwyer in case he can't go.
- Staff Rankings, 2MugsFF
“The Chargers were a respectable 11th against fantasy backs, but Ellington's big play ability makes him a threat on any carry or reception. He is a game time decision on a Monday Night Game, so you will need to own Jonathan Dwyer if you plan on starting Ellington.
- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax
“Was at RB11 until injury news. Placing him here is hedging bets due to Monday start.
- John Halpin, Fox Sports
“*Falling Star* - And the story line continues. ESPN's Schefter and Mortensen both state that the vibe around Arizona is very negative on the Ellington injury and his status for MNF. Even if he does start it will take a lot for him to produce as a top RB in Week 1. Replace him with a safer option if you can. If you don't ENSURE that you have a last minute option replacement just in case he is ruled OUT.
