Andre Ellington (RB, ARI) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Ben Speed Page -

Baller Move: Stash in all formats.

Analysis: The upward-trending Ellington bumped his production up yet again this week. Ellington, still available in over 60% of leagues, was finally called upon more than the horribly struggling Mendenhall. For the first time this season, the Cardinals finally leaned more on Ellington, after weeks of him showing up the veteran Mendenhall. Ellington had 12 touches compared to Rashard’s 11. That marks yet another week of increased action for Ellington, who rolled for 56 yards and a touchdown on just seven carries. Andre added five catches for 36 yards. Compare this to Mendenhall’s 40 yards on 10 carries and lone catch for a measly two yards, and the efficiency I have been talking about for weeks with regard to Ellington seems to be leading to Mendenhall spending more time on the sidelines, as predicted.  Ellington looks to be the back to own moving forward, and is at the very least worth a stash while his role comes more into focus.
