Cardinals RB Andre Ellington already prepping for 2014 season

Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official website has a piece up about running back Andre Ellington @AEllington38 already preparing for next season. That includes visits to the training room to heal some late-season nicks and visits to the workout room to add weight onto his 200-pound frame. It also talks about how much of a neophyte the rookie Ellington was when it came to lining up as a receiver and running routes in training camp. Yet, Ellington caught 39 passes this season and saw more and more snaps away from the backfield later in the year.

Fantasy Analysis:

Keep in mind that Rashard Mendenhall @R_Mendenhall is about to become a free agent. While I think the Cardinals should commit to Ellington, they most likely won't, afraid that his lack of size will leave him too vulnerable to injuries and unable to take on a full workload. But even as half of a running-back committee, Ellington has supreme upside. If the Cardinals use him correctly -- continue to give him the ball out in space; is 14-16 touches per week too much to ask? -- Ellington is going to be one of the best value picks in your draft.
