    Default AP Traded to Cardinals

    Interesting. Still don't love his outlook, but it seems like a better situation than he was in with the Saints and likely worth a flier if he's on your wire and you have a need.

    Hope this gets the Cardinals going enough to win just enough games to make sure they bring DJ back when he is healthy. But not enough that AP eats into DJ time when he is back.....

    very fine line there. haha

    I'm more concerned about the outlook on Ellington. I've had him pinned as a bit of a PPR sleeper since DJ went down.
    Not many remember, but he was all lined up to be the starting back in Arizona a couple years ago and then got injured in the preseason and had to miss the first few games. In that time their new rookie emerged and took over (David Johnson). Ellington was never a bad player, was just robbed of his opportunity.

    We know that Arians loves to run though and every backs there tend to do well when given volume (Ware, West, DJ, etc..). AP is worth a flier, but don't blow your whole FAAB on him or anything

    Matters more for Ingram and Kamara than it does for anyone in AZ

    Unless AD (come on guys, it's AD for "All Day") gets 20+ touches he's done. He's a volume back who can't catch, he needs to wear ppl down and get into a rhythm. The way Ellington has played, Peterson won't do well unless he explodes on his first few carries.

    To clarify:

    I'm not expecting Peterson to turn back clock 5 years or anything, but I think there is a chance he becomes the early down back with volume.

    Chris Johnson sucks. And the only thing Ellington has ever proven is that he's incapable of carrying the load. He's too fragile and gets hurt without fail under even moderate workloads. He'll still be the receiving back, but saving him from that pound the line wear and tear -- I think that's exactly why they brought Peterson in.

    Kerwyn hasn't gotten it done.
    Johnson hasn't gotten it done.
    I don't think they can afford to run Ellington with 20+ touches a game.

    So I think Peterson gets his shot. Totally not worth blowing a huge chunk of the budget on or anything. But worth a low cost flier if you can get him in the off chance that he catches lightning in a bottle.

    P.s. Also agree that this is far more helpful news for Engram and Kamara, but I imagine those guys are long gone in most leagues.

    Even if he gets 20 touches, taht O-Line is terrible and Petey has lost more than a step. He might provide a coupole good games but he's not returning to RB1 (or even RB2) status here.
