    Predators' Ryan Ellis: Scores lone goal Tuesday

    Ellis recorded his 20th point of the year against the Blackhawks on Tuesday. Ellis has gone relatively unnoticed given the numbers being put up by fellow blueliners Roman Josi and Shea Weber. The 24-year-old has tallied five points in his last 10 contests while averaging over 20 minutes of ice time per night. Facing Winnipeg on Thursday, the defenseman will hope to continue building on a solid offensive season.

    Predators' Ryan Ellis: Records third point in last four games

    Ellis chipped in with an assist and four shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blues. Ellis has now recorded points in three of his last four games and is up to 16 to go with a plus-10 rating in 36 games this season. He's been firing the puck more lately as well, piling up 19 SOG in his last eight games. Ellis is an integral part of one of the league's best group of blueliners behind studs Shea Weber and Roman Josi, so he could provide sneaky value in shallower leagues if you're looking for help on the back end. For comparison's sake, the 2009 first-round pick is on pace for 36 points, so Ellis looks poised to best his career high of 27 set in each of the last two seasons.

    Predators' Ryan Ellis: Collects two assists in loss

    Ellis recorded two assists and five shots on goal in Saturday's loss to the Avalanche. Ellis has only scored twice this season, but he's up to 13 points in 29 games. The 24-year-old is sporting a solid plus-7 rating and is averaging 19:47 of ice time. Shea Weber and Roman Josi man the points on the first power-play unit, but Ellis is a great second-unit quarterback and a reliable fantasy option in deeper formats.

    Predators' Ryan Ellis: Rare helper in loss to Red Wings

    Ellis posted an assist in Saturday's 5-4 OT loss to the Red Wings. It was just his 11th point of the season and second in the last 10 games. Ellis tends to score in bunches, as he has three multi-point nights so far this year, accounting for seven of his 11 points. What that means for fantasy owners is putting up with a lot of zero-point efforts waiting for Ellis to light it up. The good news is, if you stick with him for a full season, he still has a good chance at eclipsing the 27 points he scored in each of the last two seasons - but again, you've got to be patient.

    Predators' Ryan Ellis: Slumping offensively despite more ice time

    Ellis has been held off the scoresheet in five of his past six games, and has just two assists over that span. Despite his current slump, Ellis still has seven points in 14 games so far this season, which puts him on pace for roughly a 40-point campaign. He continues to skate roughly 19-20 minutes per game on the Preds' third defensive pairing with Mattias Ekholm, and he also mans the point on the second power-play unit where he sees about two minutes per game. All told, Ellis makes for a decent fantasy defenseman option in medium to deeper formats.
