i would actually say he is overrated. He has been under 4 ypc the last 2 years, and that's running last year behind a very good Bengals run blocking line. The guy has no explosion, and doesn't break long runs. He is a good short yardage guy who never fumbled, until last year. That's what he was known for. Ivory is a much better running back. If anything, Ellis should be the change of pace third down back. And if Ivory gets banged up, you still have a decent backup in Ellis.
