RB - FA
Andre Ellington has been released by the Buccaneers.
Ellington couldn’t quite make it to the Bucs final roster. He recently rushed for nine yards and caught both of his targets in Thursday’s preseason game against the Cowboys. Dare Ogunbowale beat out Ellington for the third running back role. Ellington will look to latch onto another team, but there might not be much of a market for him.
Buccaneers RB Andre Ellington carried the ball three times for nine yards in Thursday night's preseason finale win over Dallas.
Ellington also caught both of his targets for 34 yards in the win. While the veteran was expected to have a role on the team, the impressive Dare Ogunbowale may have done enough to fend him off.
Buccaneers RB Andre Ellington carried the ball six times for 15 yards in Friday night's preseason win over the Dolphins.
Ellington also caught all four of his targets for 14 yards in the win. Ellington, who has familiarity in Bruce Arians' system and is a pass-catching back, could open the year with low-end PPR value if he can remain on the field. Though a mix of Peyton Barber and Ronald Jones is expected to eat up the early-down touches.
Buccaneers RB Andre Ellington ran the ball four times for nine yards in Friday night's preseason loss to Pittsburgh.
Ellington also caught his lone target for four yards. The veteran pass-catching back could be a solid deep PPR add if he carves out a role for himself in the passing game.
Andre Ellington had zero rushing attempts and was not involved in the passing game in the Texans’ loss to the Steelers.
Andre Ellington was brought in to give the Texans some much needed backfield depth when rookie back D’Onta Foreman suffered a season ending injury. Ellington played a role as receiver and as a pass catching back in Week 13 and 14, but has not been involved in either of the past two weeks. Whatever happened to Ellington is anyone’s guess, but he is clearly not in Houston’s plans at this point.
