SI: Andre Ellington destined for stardom - [Full Article]

Cardinals RB Andre Ellington has sensational lateral agility, soft hands and good stop-start speed. HC Bruce Arians consistently has created matchup problems by using the future superstar (yes, SUPERstar) at wide and slot receiver, where Ellington’s route running is pristine. His backfield touches also have been diverse, with a variety of screens, draws, tosses and straight handoffs.

Fantasy Impact: 

Ellington is not built like a feature back, so it's unlikely that he's ever going to consistently see 20-plus touches. But he has already carved out a complementary role that could get bigger over time -- think 2011 Darren Sproles (11.5 touches per game) with a bigger rushing role. He is the #26 RB in both standard and PPR formats.
