Vikings' Rhett Ellison: Re-signs with Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ellison (knee) re-signed with the Vikings on Tuesday.

Ellison suffered a torn patellar tendon in Week 17, but Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that the tight end's rehab is proceeding well and he should be "full go by training camp," according to his father, Riki. While Ellison has been useful to the Vikings as a blocker, he's never been a key part of the passing game, with just 42 receptions in 58 career appearances.

Vikings' Rhett Ellison: Will need surgery, out 6 months
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ellison (knee) will need to undergo surgery on his knee, which will keep him out for at least six months.

Ellison suffered a torn patellar tendon in his right leg during Sunday night's win over the Packers. The 27-year-old had 11 receptions for 124 yards and one touchdown through 15 games this season. While his numbers aren't spectacular, Ellison is a viable asset to the Vikings' offense, as he serves as a tight end and fullback, making him a premiere pass and run blocker. In his absence, rookie Mycole Pruitt could see an increase in action.

Vikings' Rhett Ellison: Catches first TD
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rhett Ellison had two receptions for 18 yards, including an 11-yard touchdown, in Sunday's win at Oakland.

Ellison has become a larger part of the passing game the last four weeks with five receptions and seven targets, but that's not enough for viable fantasy value in most formats.
