Analysis: Ellington has 33 receptions but hasn't been any sort of a threat running the ball.

Nov. 5, 2017 5:17 PM PT6:17 PM MT7:17 PM CT8:17 PM ET1:17 GMT9:17 6:17 PM MST8:17 PM EST7:17 PM CT5:17 UAE (+1)20:17 ETNaN:� - Andre Ellington ran for zero yards on zero carries Sunday in the Arizona Cardinals' 20-10 win over the San Francisco 49ers. He added two receptions for 14 yards.
Oct. 22, 2017 7:43 AM PT8:43 AM MT9:43 AM CT10:43 AM ET14:43 GMT22:43 7:43 AM MST9:43 AM EST9:43 AM CT18:43 UAE10:43 ETNaN:� - Ellington is inactive for the Cardinals' game against the Rams.
Analysis: Useless as a running back, Ellington had recorded nine reception in two of his past three games, but won't play in this one.
Oct. 20, 2017 8:07 AM PT9:07 AM MT10:07 AM CT11:07 AM ET15:07 GMT23:07 8:07 AM MST10:07 AM EST10:07 AM CT19:07 UAE11:07 ETNaN:� - Ellington has missed practice the last two days with a quad injury, putting his status for Week 7 up in the air.
Analysis: With Adrian Peterson having taken over the workload in the backfield, Ellington is only usable as a flex play in a PPR league because he should remain a major part of the passing game if healthy.
Oct. 8, 2017 4:23 PM PT5:23 PM MT6:23 PM CT7:23 PM ET23:23 GMT7:23 4:23 PM MST6:23 PM EST6:23 PM CT3:23 UAE (+1)19:23 ETNaN:� - Andre Ellington ran for -2 yards on one carry Sunday in the Arizona Cardinals' 34-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. He added nine receptions for 65 yards.
Analysis: Arizona's third-down back recorded nine catches for a second straight game and is averaging a useful 70 receiving yards over the past three weeks. With the Cardinals putting the ball in the air with frequency, Ellington should remain a factor in PPR leagues until David Johnson returns from his wrist injury.
Oct. 1, 2017 5:36 PM PT6:36 PM MT7:36 PM CT8:36 PM ET0:36 GMT8:36 5:36 PM MST7:36 PM EST7:36 PM CT4:36 UAE (+1)20:36 ETNaN:� - Andre Ellington ran for 18 yards on five carries Sunday in the Arizona Cardinals' 18-15 win over the San Francisco 49ers. He added nine receptions for 86 yards.
Analysis: Ellington had a career-high nine catches and nearly had his first touchdown of the season on a 12-yard catch before it was overturned on replay. With Arizona's running game struggling, Ellington has become a force out of the backfield with 19 receptions on 30 targets.
Sep. 25, 2017 8:59 PM PT9:59 PM MT10:59 PM CT11:59 PM ET3:59 GMT11:59 8:59 PM MST10:59 PM EST10:59 PM CT7:59 UAE (+1)23:59 ETNaN:� - Andre Ellington ran for 22 yards on five carries Monday in the Arizona Cardinals' 28-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He added five receptions for 59 yards.
Analysis: Ellington saw a lot of snaps in the second half with the Cardinals playing from behind and came through with a worthwhile contribution for PPR players. As Arizona's clear-cut passing-down back in the absence of David Johnson, he's starting to trend towards becoming a usable fantasy option once again.
Sep. 17, 2017 2:39 PM PT3:39 PM MT4:39 PM CT5:39 PM ET21:39 GMT5:39 2:39 PM MST4:39 PM EST4:39 PM CT1:39 UAE (+1)17:39 ETNaN:� - Andre Ellington ran for 11 yards on two carries Sunday in the Arizona Cardinals' 16-13 win over the Indianapolis Colts. He added three receptions for 12 yards.
Sep. 10, 2017 3:21 PM PT4:21 PM MT5:21 PM CT6:21 PM ET22:21 GMT6:21 3:21 PM MST5:21 PM EST5:21 PM CT2:21 UAE (+1)18:21 ETNaN:� - Andre Ellington ran for zero yards on zero carries Sunday in the Arizona Cardinals' 35-23 loss to the Detroit Lions. He added two receptions for 35 yards.
Analysis: Ellington didn't enter the game until David Johnson exited with a wrist injury in the third quarter and was mostly used on passing downs. He could have a bit of fantasy value in PPR leagues if Johnson misses next week's game at Indianapolis, but won't be worth considering if Johnson does play.
Aug. 13, 2017 12:05 PM PT1:05 PM MT2:05 PM CT3:05 PM ET19:05 GMT3:05 12:05 PM MST2:05 PM EST2:05 PM CT23:05 UAE15:05 ETNaN:� - Ellington had seven carries for 20 yards and four receptions for 31 yards in Saturday's preseason win over the Raiders.
Analysis: This would seemingly be a good sign for Ellington that he'll be getting some touches to spell David Johnson, but veteran Chris Johnson remains in line for the No. 2 RB spot on the Cardinals and was only used on the opening series Saturday.
Mar. 29, 2017 12:39 PM PT1:39 PM MT2:39 PM CT3:39 PM ET19:39 GMT3:39 12:39 PM MST2:39 PM EST2:39 PM CT23:39 UAE15:39 ETNaN:� - Ellington is moving to receiver, according to coach Bruce Arians.
Analysis: Signed to a one-year deal earlier this month, Ellington has proven to be better in the passing game during his four seasons in Arizona and struggled in his lone campaign as the team's featured back. The 5-foot-9, 199-pound Ellington saw his carries dwindle from 201 in 2014 to a total of 79 over the last two seasons, including 34 for just 96 yards in 2016.
