Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said newly acquired RB Adrian Peterson won't play on third downs.
This is good news for Andre Ellington, who is used more in the passing game. This season, Ellington has caught 35+ yards in 4-of-5 games and has averaged 7.6 receptions and 70 yards receiving his last three games. In a somewhat difficult matchup versus the Bucs this week, we have Ellington ranked as our No. 21 PPR back. Feel confident starting him as your RB2/Flex option in PPR leagues.

Week 6 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Adrian Peterson hasn’t been productive the past two seasons, struggling with injuries and ineffectiveness, but his arrival in Arizona will at the very least provide him with additional opportunities to show he still has what it takes to be an effective starter. He was barely used in New Orleans, while Chris Johnson was getting double-digit carries for the Cardinals.
Peterson has high upside if he gets as much work as is expected, but this might not be the best week to use him. He’s likely still getting acclimated to the offense and it will be risky to assume he’ll make an immediate impact. Fantasy owners should take a wait-and-see approach with him.
