Bruce Ellington stayed fantasy irrelevant in 2015, gaining just 153 yards on 13 catches with no touchdowns.
Ellington remained low on the depth chart despite staying healthy for the majority of the season. He was the San Francisco 49ers ' primary return man (25.6 yards per kick return), but it is tough to produce as the fourth or fifth receiver in an offense that struggles to move the ball through the air. With Anquan Boldin set to hit free agency, Ellington will get a chance to compete for a more prominent role in the offense this offseason.
Bruce Ellington was used in three and four receiver sets Sunday, finishing with three catches (four targets) for 55 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions.
Jerome Simpson was a healthy scratch Sunday, so Ellington saw more snaps on offense after serving primarily as a returner all season. With no more meaningful games left, the San Francisco 49ers likely wanted to get a better look at their speedy wideout instead of giving snaps to the veteran Simpson. While a similar scenario could take place next week, there just isn't enough fantasy wealth in this offense to rely on San Francisco wideouts.
Bruce Ellington (calf) is active for Thursday's game versus the Seahawks.
Making running back Jarryd Hayne and wideout DeAndrew White healthy scratches, the San Francisco 49ers could employ Ellington as a change-of-pace option, though Reggie Bush (calf) is a prime candidate to fill that role. As a result, Ellington is unlikely to make much of an impact as a receiver in Week 7.
Bruce Ellington (calf) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Ravens, Cam Inman of the San Francisco 49ers ' official site reports.
The 49ers will keep four wideouts and four tight ends active Sunday, with Vernon Davis (knee) returning to the lineup. As a result, Ellington will sit with a measly seven targets to his name across four games.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Bruce Ellington (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens , CSN Bay Area reports.
Though he figures to keep playing through his injury, Ellington will likely just be the No. 4 wide receiver, behind Anquan Boldin , Torrey Smith and Quinton Patton . It won't be surprising if Ellington eventually puts pressure on Patton, but the No. 3 wideout role in San Francisco's offense doesn't come with many targets.
