2017

2016

Ellington hasn't done much in his first two seasons with San Francisco, amassing just 215 receiving yards and three total touchdowns in that span. With the club seemingly having moved on from veteran Anquan Boldin, Ellington had a legitimate chance to be the 49ers' slot receiver in 2016 due to his size (5-foot-9) and quickness, but was placed on IR in August.

2015

The 49ers drafted the speedy Ellington in 2014 with hopes of injecting some energy into their slow receiving corps. He didn't make a huge impact in his rookie season, but showed flashes with 90 total yards and three touchdowns on just 12 touches, adding contributions in the return game. With veterans Michael Crabtree, Stevie Johnson, and Brandon Lloyd gone, touches remain up for grabs among the group of receivers behind Torrey Smith and Anquan Boldin. Ellington will have to beat out Quinton Patton and the newly-acquired Jerome Simpson in training camp to have relevance in San Francisco's new-look offense, but he could be a sneaky he could be a sneaky PPR option if he does win the slot receiver position, as Colin Kaepernick could look to get the speedy wideout the rock in space.

2014

Ellington was a luxury pick for a 49ers team that didn't have many needs, but the undersized speedster adds a dimension to the receiving corps than players like Anquan Boldin and Stevie Johnson don't possess. He could develop into a dangerous weapon out of the slot, but don't expect much impact from him as a rookie.
