Andre Ellington, again a non-factor for Houston

Andre Ellington had zero rushing attempts and was not involved in the passing game in the Texans’ loss to the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

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.

Andre Ellington a non-factor in Week 15

Andre Ellington had zero rushing attempts and was not targeted in the passing game in Houston's Week 16 loss to Jacksonville.

Fantasy Impact

Andre Ellington was surprisingly a non-factor in the Texans' blowout loss to the Jags. Ellington is not a fantasy consideration in Week 16 abasing Pittsburgh.

Andre Ellington gains 22 total yards against 49ers

Andre Ellington rushed three times for six yards and added one catch for 16 yards on Sunday against the 49ers.

Fantasy Impact

No one was relying on Ellington in their playoff matchup, but his lack of usage was discouraging, especially given his 56 yards receiving last weekend. He's not a fantasy option except in the deepest of leagues.

Andre Ellington plays his first game as a Texan

Andre Ellington rushed two times for negative four yards and caught five-of-six passes for 56 yards in the Texans’ Week 13 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Impact

This was Ellington’s first game action as a member of the Texans. He didn’t provide much of anything on the ground, but found a role in the passing game. The Texans lost both wide receivers Bruce Ellington and Braxton Miller on Sunday forcing Andre Ellington to play some receiver. Ellington should continue to be involved in the Houston offense as pass catching back, but cannot be trusted in the fantasy playoffs. Ellington and the Texans host San Francisco in Week 14.

Andre Ellington inactive in Week 12

Andre Ellington was inactive in the Texans’ Week 12 loss to the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact

Ellington was just signed earlier in the week after the Texans’ lost rookie RB D’Onta Foreman to a season ending Achilles injury. The healthy scratch is not a surprise as the Texans and Ellington most likely felt another week of practice would be best before throwing him out there. Ellington should become involved in the passing game once he suits up.
