FF Today's Take:Ellington carved out a starting role this preseason and was gaining momentum in the fantasy community before last week's injury. Jeremy Kerley has been added for depth but the 49ers have one of the weakest group of receivers in the league. Torrey Smith and TE Vance McDonald are the only fantasy considerations among the group.

FF Today's Take:Ellington had been dealing with a sprained ankle during camp but appeared to injure his hamstring after a punt return in the 49ers 3rd preseason game. It remains to be seen how long Ellington might be out but the shine is quickly coming off his fantasy sleeper outlook.
