Bruce Ellington remains a bright spot from the slot position and it was an odd day after catching 3 passes and one went for negative gain on a screen pass.

2017 Week 4 vs TEN (4 / 3 / 44 / 0 rec, 1 / 13 / 0 rush)
The Texans have opted to move forward with Ellington as their primary slot wide receiver. He started the offense attack with a a 35 yard reception when he got vertical up the middle of the field and Watson was able to hit him right before coverage close in on him. Ellington also had some simple routes in the middle of the field but he was also used in the run game with a 13 yard gain on an option play. Ellington is finding his way into the offensive game plan every week and is getting a chance to make plays.
2017 Week 3 vs NE (7 / 4 / 59 / 1 rec, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)
Back from a concussion, he showed up strong in his first full game for the offense. Ellington had a catch down the seam for 29-yard touchdown where he beat the corner and made a leaping catch before the safety came bearing in. There was a nice drag route that he turned into an 18-yard gain on a nice catch and run. Ellington is showing that he can handle the slot wide receiver duties and provided their first real threat for the offense from that position in nearly three seasons.
