Texans claim RB Andre Ellington

Ian Rapoport on Twitter - [Full Article]

Former Cardinals RB Andre Ellington was claimed by the Texans. He’ll help immediately.

Related players: Lamar Miller, Alfred Blue

Fantasy Impact:

Ellington should help fill the void of Donta Foreman and should eventually assume his normal third-down, change-of-pace role.

Scouting Report

Week 11 at Houston Texans

Andre Ellington only had 2 carries for 4 yards last week against the Seahawks, but he did score a touchdown and he was targeted 6 times in the passing game, showing he’s still an active part of the Cardinals’ third-down plans. Ellington is a risky option, but if you’re desperate and in a PPR league, he has some upside against the Texans this week. Houston has allowed 37 receptions and 3 receiving touchdowns to opposing running backs this year.
