Rhett Ellison News
New York Giants tight endRhett Ellison is coming off of his best game of the season heading into the team's Week 13 matchup against the Bears. Ellison caught four passes for 77 yards last week and now will go up against a Chicago secondary that is allowing the 11th most fantasy points to opposing receivers. Tight end Evan Engram is dealing with a hamstring injury and will questionable throughout the week. This could open up a few more targets for Ellison in Week 13 and he could rack up some late-game garbage yards if the team falls behind early. Ellison is a WR5/6, at best, and could be worth a roster spot in deeper fantasy formats. But Ellison should not sniff starting lineups with the fantasy playoffs on the line in Week 13.
New York Giants tight end Rhett Ellison (foot) is inactive on Thursday night against the Eagles. With Evan Engram (knee) out another week as well, the Giants are down to Scott Simonson and rookie Garrett Dickerson at the tight end position. Neither of them should be used as starters this week at an incredibly thin position.
New York Giants tight end Rhett Ellison (foot) was limited in practice the last two days and is questionable for Thursday night against the Eagles. Ellison should be able to play. He's been the main tight end with Evan Engram (knee) out, but he hasn't been relevant in fantasy with 11 catches on 14 targets for 106 yards and a touchdown through five games. He hasn't recorded more than three catches or 39 yards in a single game this year.
New York Giants tight end Rhett Ellison (eye) left Friday's preseason game against the New York Jets with an eye injury. Head coach Pat Shurmur said after the game that Ellison had blurred vision in his eye, but concussion was ruled out. The backup tight end is likely to undergo further testing, but the belief is that Ellison will be fine. He is actually the tight end who would be called upon to start in Week 1 if Evan Engram (concussion) isn't ready to go. Ellison might absorb more targets than expected if Engram struggles to be ready by Sept. 9, but he would only be useful in the deepest of fantasy formats as a temporary replacement for Engram owners.
Coming off a four-catch effort in Week 16, New York Giants backup tight end Rhett Ellison has some upside in the Week 17 matchup against the Washington Redskins. Ellison should be the beneficiary of increased playing time and targets with rookie Evan Engram (ribs) potentially missing this week. Ellison has high-end TE2 upside in all leagues this week.
