Cardinals RB Andre Ellington equals playing time with RB Rashard Mendenhall

Former Clemson Tigers running back and current rookie with the Arizona Cardinals, running back Andre Ellington enjoyed an even split of playing time with RB Rashard Mendenhall @R_Mendenhall. Both backs played 30 snaps against the Carolina Panthers in Week 5.

Fantasy Analysis:

Huge news for the rookie as we're witnessing the ascent of Ellington. In his 30 snaps, the rookie saw seven carries for 52 yards to go along with four receptions for 31 yards. He should be on everyone's radar, regardless of league scoring format or size. Ellington is blessed with terrific speed and on his 31 total touches, he is averaging 8.5 yards per play. As the Cards trust him more and more, his value continues to climb.

It would be nice to see what this kid could do as a number one. Mendenhall is so boring
