Andre Ellington to move to wide receiver in 2017

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians told the media running back Andre Ellington will convert to wide receiver for 2017.

Fantasy Impact

Ellington, a four-year veteran running back on the Cardinals, will convert to wide receiver for the 2017 season. Due to the emergency of David Johnson as a rusher and primary receiver out of the backfield, Ellington's skill set could be better served at wideout. Expect Ellington to enter the upcoming season as the No. 4 or No. 5 receiver on Arizona's depth chart.

Andre Ellington re-signs with Cardinals

Andre Ellington re-signed with the Cardinals on a one-year deal for an unknown amount. Ellington will continue to spell David Johnson only when he needs a breather.

Fantasy Impact

Ellington just hasn't lived up to his speed and elusiveness and now lost his starting job to David Johnson. Johnson is the man in Arizona while Kerwynn Williams will also be in the mix.

Andre Ellington once again has quiet game

Andre Ellington rushed five times for five yards and added one reception for 10 yards in the week 13 victory over the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Impact

As expected Ellington did not do much in this game, but he remains relevant as a handcuff for David Johnson as the fantasy playoffs roll around.

Andre Ellington sees action

Andre Ellington had seven yards on just two carries against the Seahawks Sunday night. He was targeted out of the backfield just one time.

Fantasy Impact

Ellington continues to fill back up duties with Chris Johnson on IR. The Cardinals commitment to David Johnson keeps Ellington from getting on the field for any meaningful time, so he isn't worth being on your roster. If Johnson were to get hurt, however, he would inherit a top 10 workload.

Andre Ellington fills back up duties

Andre Ellington had five carries for 25 yards against the Jets Monday night.

Fantasy Impact

With Chris Johnson sitting out for a second straight week, Andre Ellington filled the back up role for the Cardinals last night. The Cardinals remain committed to David Johnson, limiting Ellington's opportunities. Unless Johnson gets injured, Ellington probably shouldn't be rostered.
