49ers Beat: Bruce Ellington, Shaun Draughn 'go-to' receivers on third down

Friday, August 12, 2016, 11:29am

Press Democrat - [Full Article]

49ers WR Bruce Ellington caught a team-high three passes, all of which came on third down. He and RB Shaun Draughn are Blaine Gabbert’s go-to third-down receivers.

Fantasy Impact:

Ellington was reportedly playing the slot with the first team in OTAs; it was Jordan Matthews’ position in Chip Kelly’s offense over the past two years (en route to 4.8 catches per game). Ellington’s combine scores – 4.45 40-yard dash, 3.95 20-yard shuttle, 6.69 3-cone drill – indicate elite athleticism. Kelly said he was “intrigued” by Ellington’s skill set, while Blaine Gabbert said that Ellington was “balling out” in OTAs and “catching a ton of balls.” He’s an interesting late-round flier, especially in PPR formats. It wouldn’t be shocking if he sees 100 targets as the #2 passing option in Kelly’s high-paced offense. As for Draughn, he could put a serious dent in Carlos Hyde's upside if he serves as the third-down back while Hyde is watching from the sideline.

Scouting Report

2016 Fantasy Outlook
Draughn didn't exactly light the world on fire last season averaging 3.5 yards per carry. But he's the clear cut backup to Carlos Hyde, who is, shall we say, a little injury-prone. If Hyde stays healthy, Draughn doesn't have a lot upside. But if Hyde goes down, Draughn should at least have value as a high-volume player.
