| Andre Ellington not expected to play -- Sun Dec 20 7:00 am --|
Likely back in Week 16

FF Today's Take: With Ellington out, David Johnson should once again command most of the running back workload for Arizona. Last week, Johnson racked up 24 touches while Stepfan Taylor and Kerywnn Williams combined for 8. Johsnon is an RB1 against the Eagles in Week 16.
| David Johnson to start again, Ellington ruled out -- Wed Dec 9 7:21 pm --|
Logged career-high 22 carries vs. Rams a week ago

FF Today's Take: Rookie RB David Johnson did just fine carrying the load for the Cardinals last week and he'll be asked to do so again in Week 14 with Andre Ellington already ruled out for Thursday's matchup with the Vikings. Johnson should be able to find just enough room against Minnesota to be a low-end RB2 this week. Meanwhile, Andre Ellington continues to be sidelined with turf toe so Kerwynn Williams and Stepfan Taylor will backup Johnson.

Rookie RB set to handle heavy workload
|Andre Ellington (toe) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in St. Louis. As expected, Ellington will miss at least one game due to the turf toe injury he suffered in Week 12. David Johnson is thus set to serve as the unquestioned leader of Arizona's backfield in Sunday's game, but with Chris Johnson done for the season, Ellington may still get his shot at an increased role. David Johnson will be backed up by Stepfan Taylor and Kerwynn Williams. (CBS Sports)|
FF Today's Take: Despite some fumbling issues, David Johnson has been fairly productive as a rookie. The 24-year-old, who has eight touchdowns this season, will be looking to add to that total against the Rams on Sunday.
