Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

A Cardinals win in Week 17 must coincide with a Panthers loss to the Buccaneers in order to achieve home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. However, if the Panthers hold a noticeable lead early in the game, it may be enough to spur head coach Bruce Arians to sit David Johnson and Ellington in order to preserve them for future weeks. If the preceding comes to pass, the Cardinals would be down to Stepfan Taylor (shoulder) and Kerwynn Williams out of the backfield.

Ellington (toe) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After sitting out Weeks 13 through 15 as a result of turf toe, Ellington will likely endure a cap on his practice reps through the Cardinals' upcoming playoff run. Such a precaution is advised with Chris Johnson (fractured tibia) sidelined and only modest depth outside of starter David Johnson. Expect Ellington to receive his typical handful of touches Sunday against the Seahawks.
Ellington (toe) returned from a three-game absence Sunday, taking seven carries for 40 yards and his sole target for five yards during a 38-8 win versus the Packers.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Cleared to play for the first time since Week 12, Ellington will likely be relegated to a reserve role, which equated to about five touches per game behind Chris Johnson earlier in the season. With Johnson (broken tibia) sidelined for the foreseeable future, Ellington will spell current workhorse David Johnson.
Ellington (toe) is expected to play Sunday against the Packers, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Ellington proved to be a multifaceted and highly productive runner as a rookie once he played his way into an increased role from Week 8 on last year. He ended up with a sparkling 5.5 YPC as well as a terrific 9.5 yards per reception. However, he's on the small end by the standards of featured running backs just 5-9, 199 so he appears destined to be the Cardinals' most heavily used back in a committee approach this year. Even once Ellington started seeing more regular action last season, he never carried the ball more than 15 times in a game, more than likely in an effort to protect him from injury. But he's too good to shelter completely, and the Cardinals have no one else to lean on for full-time work backups Stepfan Taylor and Jonathan Dwyer aren't good for much outside of a change of pace. The 25-year-old Ellington plays faster than his NFL Combine-clocked 4.61 40 time, and that was on display last season, as he broke eight rushes for more than 20 yards that's as many as LeSean McCoy and Adrian Peterson had, but in well under half as many rushing attempts. He also posted the best broken-tackle rate in the league, shedding 28 defenders despite his limited touches. With production like that, the Cardinals are going to have a hard time finding ways not to force-feed him the ball.

2013

Ellington will play a reserve role for the Cardinals with Rashard Mendenhall, Alfonso Smith, Ryan Williams, and Stepfan Taylor on the roster.
