Andre Ellington shines but Rashard Mendenhall continues to vulture the fantasy touchdowns

Andre Ellington tries to elude a tackle by Tennessee Titans defensive end Derrick Morgan - Don McPeak-USA TODAY Sports

Arizona Cardinals running back Andre Ellington posted 158 all purpose yards but Rashard Mendenhall vultures the two touchdowns in the Week 15 win over the Tennessee Titans. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

Arizona Cardinals rookie running back Andre Ellington rushed ten times for 71 yards for a 7.1 yards per carry average in the Week 15 win over the Tennessee Titans. Ellington was also targeted five times in the passing game and caught four passes for 87 yards.

Meanwhile, Rashard Mendenhall continues to vulture carries and touchdowns from Ellington with a 21 carry 69 yard effort plus two touchdowns. On the year, Mendenhall has 165 carries for 508 yards and six touchdowns. Ellington has 84 carries for 487 yards and three touchdowns.

Fantasy impact: Ellington owners by now have grown used to the vulturing and the split in carries with Mendenhall but the super talented rookie is hard to sit in PPR leagues. There, owners should continue to view him as a must start. Unfortunately for fantasy owners of both running backs, the Cardinals next match-up isn't so favorable as they visit Seattle to play the Seahawks and their tough defense. The Seahawks are giving up the 9th least fantasy points to running backs.
