Cant wait to see how he is used in tonights preseason game.  Would love to see him break a long run or catch a few passes.
I'd love for him to look like crap to keep his stock down.

Guess that makes sense for the people that dont already own him...  
For those who didn't get to see the Cardinals game he played almost exclusively on the first drive.  Except for the vultured TD of course... But there is so good news.   He touched the ball 3 times in a row ( a 2 yard carry, 16 yard catch down to the 4 yard line and then even got the next carry and pushed the pile down to the 1!!)  He stayed in the next play but the Cards went with a fade.  They went big back on 3rd down.

Still some positive new seeing him in the game and even getting a carry inside the 5!

Would have been nice not to see Dwyer come in and get the 1 yard plunge, but yea, it's a good sign that he got a carry at the 4. Agree that it's a positive that 2 of the 4 players inside the 20 were to Ellington and he used those 2 touches to get 19 of the 20 red zone yards before Dwyer scored.

The upside is there with the RB pool we are looking at this year.

Based on FFC rankings, where does he fall compared to Bernard, Bell, Foster, Martin?  Clearly he gets the edge in PPR but compared to the RBs being drafted where he "should" be, does he get the edge over the competition?

In my mocks, 8th pick, I've been tareting him in the 3rd round and getting him probably 90% of the time.  Depending on how the draft is going, I have been able to go Cobb/Keenan Allen in the third and Ellington in the 4th.

In my league though, the guy at 12/13 loves him some RBs, but wont necessarily draft RBs in 1/2 due to his position, so I am feeling I have to take Ellington in the 3rd.

Should get him there.  I agree with others, no more hype for him.  I want to be able to cooly draft him in the third without worrying
