I was the only one to bid on Ellington? seriously?
he's going to be the Card's starting RB very soon...
Honestly I'm not even sure why they are still messing with CJ2K
Bruce Arians within the past few days just said CJ was rusty and will remain the starting back. Ellington has fell outta favor years ago in Arizona. He can't stay healthy. He'll catch some passes but he'll never be a starting RB or someone who sees 15+ touches a game. Ellington will have value when Arizona is down. Outside of that his best case is just a RBBC.
I don't think either will really have value or guys you want to start ever. I kept CJ because of the touches. 11/12 in his first two games with them. Depending on game flow could be a guy that see's 15-16 rushes the occasional games. Arians seems to really like him for whatever reason.
Arians had to announce CJ the starter week 4 because everyone saw what I saw...Ellington is better
I don't think CJ is 'rusty'...I think he's 32 and done...the guy was great because he had elite speed, that is gone now.
Ellington is injury prone, but I will bet he'll be the starter pretty soon. We'll see
Yeah CJ is done for sure. That's kinda my point. Without Arians I don't think he'd be on a team. Arizona constantly goes back to him. He had 11 carries for 44 yards his first game. I think if he can perform he'll get carries. If not it'll just be him, Ellington, Williams splitting works depending on game flow. Ellington in when there behind, C.J/Williams when there ahead. C.J IMO is the guy that has a long shot at 15+ touches where Ellington should should see like 6-11 depending on the day.
You might be right but I just don't think Ellington is a starting RB. They know he can't handle the workload. He can't block for Palmer and I don't think Arians is that found of him. Guess we'll see tho, either way I don't have any confidence in starting CJ
