Shark Bites

Per beat writer Matt Barrows, 49ers WR Bruce Ellington was one of the standouts from spring practices. Ellington struggled with injuries over his first 2 seasons. But Barrows believes the 5’9 WR is positioned to be the “break-out player” on this offense. Ellington’s reportedly built chemistry with likely Week 1 starter Blaine Gabbert, whose conservative approach matches the WR’s short-range game. And there’s certainly a need for someone to step up behind Torrey Smith. The winner of the #2 job will at least carry some deep league appeal.

Recent Shark Bites

The Patriots have signed WR Bruce Ellington to a 1-year deal. The 27-year-old has battled injuries throughout his career and is averaging just 9.7 yards per catch. He did haul in 23 balls over a 4-game stretch in Detroit late last season -- but he averaged 5.7 yards per catch before hurting his hamstring. There's opportunity in New England as the current depth chart stands, but Ellington remains a long shot for 2019 fantasy value.

Lions WR Bruce Ellington (hamstring) returned to limited practices this week but is out for Sunday’s game against the Vikings. That again leaves Andy Jones and T.J. Jones as Detroit’s #2 and #3 WRs. Neither is a fantasy option.

Lions WR Bruce Ellington (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bills. His absence leaves T.J. Jones and Andy Jones behind Kenny Golladay on the depth chart. Detroit’s offense is a mess.

Lions WR Bruce Ellington was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Cardinals with a hamstring injury. He caught all 4 of his targets but for just 17 yards before exiting. We'll look for an update on the severity of his injury.

The Lions have signed WR Bruce Ellington. Houston's 2014 4th-round pick has had trouble staying healthy and has just 56 catches across 5 NFL seasons. He'll compete for slot snaps in Detroit but is a long shot for fantasy relevance.
