Andre Ellington could get short-yardage work
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Cardinals are expected to use Stepfan Taylor and Jonathan Dwyer in short-yardage situations this season ahead of starter Andre Ellington, but Ellington might not lose all that work, reports ESPN.

Per the report, Ellington "is capable of being a short-yardage workhorse, but I don't see Cardinals coach Bruce Arians using him there all the time. I think Ellington will certainly get the call on a few occasions."

Ellington is already expected to be used on first and second down and play a big role as a receiver. He will get limited work in short-yardage situations, but this report is encouraging.

Rob Housler has fallen out of favor
by Larry Hartstein |

Tight end Rob Housler is currently No. 4 on the depth chart with the Cardinals, behind John Carlson, Jake Ballard and rookie Troy Niklas, reports Housler is "just not the type of tight end head coach Bruce Arians prefers," the website said.

Housler is entering the final year of his contract. He caught 39 passes for 454 yards and a touchdown last season.
