Ellington dealt with some injuries last year, but still comes in 16th on our PPR RB list. The Cardinals drafted David Johnson to lighten Ellington’s workload, and a reduction in touches may actually help his effectiveness, though it's unlikely to help his per game fantasy production. Ellington averaged 22.0 touches per game, but only managed 3.3 YPC after averaging 5.5 YPC in his rookie season. He owned the #10 PPG in PPR formats last year, so he can give up some touches and still provide solid RB2 numbers, especially if his per touch production bounces back.
