Andre Ellington rushed three times for six yards and hauled in 1-of-2 targets for 16 yards in the Texans' Week 14 loss to the 49ers.

Andre Ellington caught 5-of-6 targets for 56 yards in Week 13 against the Titans.

Ellington was forced to play receiver with Bruce Ellington and Braxton Miller going down. He had only two carries behind Lamar Miller, but should remain involved in the pass game going forward. Even with an expanded role, Ellington can't be trusted in the fantasy playoffs.

Texans declared RB Andre Ellington, WR Will Fuller, DE Lamarr Houston, WR Cobi Hamilton, C Greg Mancz, OT Julie'n Davenport, and NT Chunky Clements inactive for Week 12 against the Ravens.

Ellington was claimed off waivers earlier in the week and is expected to have a pass-game role at some point. Fuller remains out with a ribs injury.

Texans claimed RB Andre Ellington off waivers from the Cardinals.

The Texans needed help at running back after D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') was lost for the season. Averaging a healthy nine yards on 33 receptions, it remains surprising that Ellington was cut loose by the Cardinals. He should see immediate playing time for the Texans, and will help keep plodder Alfred Blue off the field behind Lamar Miller. What Ellington is unlikely to do is provide legitimate PPR value in the Texans' Tom Savage-led offense.

ESPN's Field Yates considers the Redskins a possible landing spot for Andre Ellington.

The Redskins have a screen-heavy offense that runs through the short pass game and are in need of a Chris Thompson replacement. Ellington could complement Samaje Perine and add depth with Byron Marshall the only other healthy back. Washington is a scheme fit for Ellington, but he could draw interest from multiple teams.

Cardinals released RB Andre Ellington.

Ellington's role had been fading behind Adrian Peterson, and he was a healthy scratch last week. The Cardinals saw more upside in Bronson Hill, who was promoted from the practice squad. Playing for the veteran minimum, Ellington should resurface as a pass-down back.
Mon, Nov 20, 2017 04:36:00 PM

Cardinals RB Andre Ellington is a healthy scratch for Week 11.

Ellington hasn't done much since the Cardinals' traded for Adrian Peterson making this unsurprising. The Cardinals also declared QB Matt Barkley, WR Chad Williams, S Harlan Miller, LB Bryson Albright, C Max Tuerk, and DL Corey Peters inactive.

Andre Ellington caught 3-of-6 targets for 26 yards in the Cardinals' Week 10 loss to the Seahawks, adding two carries for four yards and a touchdown.

Ellington's fluke rushing score came in the deepest recesses of garbage time. It was his first touchdown since 2015. Since Adrian Peterson's arrival in the desert, Ellington hasn't been catching enough passes to be PPR viable.

Andre Ellington hauled in 2-of-3 targets for 14 yards in the Cardinals' Week 9 win over the 49ers.

Ellington continued to see work on passing downs Sunday, but Adrian Peterson dominated the backfield touches with the Cardinals leading almost from the opening whistle and even saw four targets. With Peterson working as the clear lead back, Ellington has no fantasy value outside of deep PPR formats.

Andre Ellington (quad) is active for Week 9 against the 49ers.

This was expected after he got in a limited week of practice. Even active, Ellington is not a fantasy option outside of deeper PPR formats with Adrian Peterson leading the backfield. Arizona declared WR Chad Williams (back), RB D.J. Foster, LB Scooby Wright, OL Daniel Munyer (toe), OL Will Holden, TE Ricky Seals-Jones, and DL Xavier Williams inactive for Week 9.

Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (quad) is expected to play Week 9 against the 49ers.

Ellington missed the game in London, but he is good to go after resting his injured quad over the bye week. Even so, he is only an option in deep PPR leagues with Adrian Peterson leading the backfield.
Sun, Nov 5, 2017 08:14:00 AM

Andre Ellington (quad) is questionable for Week 9 against the 49ers.

Ellington should play after having the bye week to rest up. His role has been reduced behind Adrian Peterson, but he could see more targets now that Drew Stanton is starting.
Fri, Nov 3, 2017 04:55:00 PM

Andre Ellington (quad) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

The Cardinals' passing-down back should be good to go following the bye, but it's not a given. We should know Ellington's status by Friday.
Thu, Nov 2, 2017 07:20:00 PM

Andre Ellington (quad) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

He sat out Week 7 but had last week's bye to rest up and should be ready to roll Sunday against the 49ers. Ellington doesn't carry much fantasy appeal now that Adrian Peterson has settled in as the Cardinals' workhorse.
Wed, Nov 1, 2017 04:28:00 PM

Cardinals declared RB Andre Ellington, QB Blaine Gabbert, WR Chad Williams, RB D.J. Foster, OL Daniel Munyer, DL Olsen Pierre, and TE Ricky Seals-Jones inactive for Week 7 against the Rams.

Ellington is battling a quad injury. Adrian Peterson will again get all he can handle.
