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

Week 1 vs. Los Angeles
While starter Carlos Hyde is dealing with a concussion, Draughn is working his way through a rib issue. If Hyde doesn't play, Draughn should get 15-20 touches. That might make him good enough for at least a flex play. If Hyde does play, Draughn has little value this week.
