Cardinals HC Bruce Arians mentioned Andre Ellington is #1 back and expects him to get 25-30 touches per game.
Well, 25 touches per game equates to 400 over the course of a 16-game season. In the last 40 seasons, just 36 running backs have posted 400+ touches in a season, and only one (James Wilder, 1984) has touched the ball 480 times (which equates to 30 touches per game). Andre Ellington isn't going to touch the ball that much, but this kind of talk will do nothing to dampen the optimism surrounding him this offseason. He looks like a strong RB2 in standard formats with upside in PPR.
