Huddle Up: This is a significant blow for the 49ers' already subpar offense. Torrey Smith's status as San Francisco's No. 1 receiver solidifies, while Quinton Patton likely becomes the No. 2 receiver and gets a good bump in fantasy value. Even still, Patton should only be looked at in later rounds and should be thought of as no more than a WR4 in deeper leagues.

Huddle Up: Ellington was in line to open the year as the starting slot receiver, but a serious injury could change that. If healthy, he could be a decent WR5 in PPR formats.

Huddle Up: If he can stay healthy, Ellington has a chance to thrive as the slot receiver in Chip Kelly's offense. He could be a late-round steal, especially in PPR formats.

Huddle Up: Injuries have conspired to hold Ellington to 19 catches over his first two seasons as a pro, but a breakout season for a player with his quickness in a Chip Kelly offense should come as a shock to no one. His current 13th-round ADP in PPR formats should be considered highway robbery and should be considered even more of a steal in leagues that reward return yardage, as he is projected to run back kicks and punts, as well. Ellington has WR3 upside at a WR5 price.

Huddle Up: Ellington is receiving plenty of buzz as a Chip Kelly type of player, and his moving to the top of the 49ers' thin receiver depth chart is a good sign. The uptick in plays alone should generate more offense for San Francisco, and if Ellington remains the starter he could wind up as a fantasy contributor.
