Andre Ellington injury update: RB questionable, likely game-time decision for fantasy owners

The Arizona Cardinals running back is listed as questionable and could miss Week 13. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals running back Andre Ellington (knee) is listed as questionable and could be a game-time decision for the team's Week 13 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Ellington did not practice on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Ellington broke out in Week 8 but hasn't been able to provide fantasy owners with much value since. Still splitting time with Rashard Mendenhall, Ellington hasn't carried the ball more than 15 times since Week 8 and has only had double-digit carries three times all year. Stuck in a time share with a suspect offensive line, the talented rookie doesn't present owners with a desirable situation. Ellington is good for a couple of catches per game as well, but still doesn't make a strong play, especially with the injury.

If Ellington does suit up this week, he will have a solid matchup in the Eagles. If he does find his way onto the field on Sunday, he will likely be less than 100 percent healthy. Ellington is a low-end flex option in Week 13 and owners need to continue to monitor the situation with a back-up plan ready to go should he not play on Sunday.
