Rashard Mendenhall is doubtful to play Sunday, the toe that has been bothering him off and on for weeks now bad enough to likely sideline the veteran running back against Atlanta. That means rookie sixth-round draft pick Andre Ellington, who has averaged 6.4 yards a carry backing up Mendenhall, will probably get his first start against the Falcons. “I was already getting the majority of the plays on offense, but my role is just a little bit bigger,” Ellington said.

Ellington probably won't get 20 carries, but he should get more than the three he had last week. He is a top-20 back this week, and is still available in a ton of leagues.
