2014 Outlook: Do Not DraftLast updated on Jul-04-2014 by Brad Kruse
Dwyer came from Pittsburgh where head coach Bruce Arians had some exposure to him. Dwyer has been serviceable in short stints or when playing a smaller role over the years. If Taylor doesn't deliver for this team, Dwyer could step in. Neither player has Ellington's upside, but in today's NFL you need two or three running backs to be successful. Dwyer has no fantasy value until he solidifies a larger role in the offense.
Bruce Arians stated that Andre Ellington is ready to be a 'bellcow' in the Arizona offense, according to Darren Urban, a reporter that has covered the Arizona Cardinals for 15 years. In the offseason, it has been confirmed that Ellington has added an additional 10 pounds to his frame. Ellington became the featured back of the Arizona Cardinals after the retirement of Rashard Mendenhall earlier in the year. Ellington still faces competition from Stepfan Taylor and Jonathan Dwyer, two backs that may share a workload with Ellington.Fantasy Analysis:
Ellington showed flashes of brilliance during his rookie campaign. Because of the limited amount of touches he received, his fantasy production was severely diminished. However, when he did get his hands on the ball, he lit it up. With only 118 carries Ellington racked in 652 yards and three touchdowns in the 2013 season. He also caught the ball 39 times for 371 yards and a touchdown. Ellington currently has an ADP of 37, placing him behind the likes of Doug Martin and Zac Stacy. If Ellington truly becomes the 'bellcow' of the Arizona offense, 1,000 all-purpose yards is extremely likely. With his unique talents for rushing and catching he is a must-own in PPR formats.

|16.10||Gridiron Experts - Not much left out there, so I'm just taking a back-up running back that might play a little on third downs or put up a decent game or two should he become the starter. Dwyer has very limited upside, even as a starter.|
