Andre Ellington, Arizona Cardinals

Baller Move:  Add in All Leagues Immediately

Analysis:  As the season progresses, Ellington’s running back role continues to grow within the Arizona offense.  Rashard Mendenhall continues to slip into fantasy football irrelevance, as he continues to be ineffective.  Ellington on the other hand is a young, fast, shifty, dynamic running back who can make plays.  On Sunday Ellington put on quite a show rushing for 154 yards on only 15 carries (10.3 YPC average) with a TD, and adding two catches as well.  That was good for the second most points of any running back in the NFL, racking up 24.20 points in PPR leagues.  Don’t forget that he put up 20.20 points (PPR leagues) in week 6 as well, versus a stout SF defense.  The fact that he is still only owned in 53% of Yahoo leagues is crazy, and he needs to be owned in all leagues immediately.  If this rising running back is still available in your fantasy league, make sure to target him aggressively on the week 9 waiver wire.
