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.

Texans WR Bruce Ellington has been placed on IR with a hamstring injury suffered in last week's loss to the Giants. He had been serving as Houston's #3 WR. That job should go to rookie Keke Coutee as soon as he gets over his own hamstring injury. WRs DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller will continue to dominate Texans targets.
