2016 Outlook: Deep-league OnlyLast updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs
It was almost like Ellington had a double squeeze in his opportunity in 2015. Chris Johnson stole the early down action due to an injury while David Johnson was the most compelling option in the passing game. It didn't help that Andre suffered a right knee injury in Week 1 (76 combined yards with a TD and a catch). When Ellington returned to the field, he fell to third on the depth chart at the RB position. Later in the season, Andre battled a toe injury. His resume in 2013 (1023 combined yards with four TDs and 39 catches) is strong enough to continue the RB2 job while offering value in the passing game. If Arizona moved him back ahead of Chris Johnson, the Cardinals would have a passing threat out of the backfield on every down. I would keep an eye on this situation as the handcuff to David Johnson will have playable value at times in 2016.
