Player Outlook

Rhett Ellison will be the No. 2 tight end for the Giants this season behind Evan Engram, but he has minimal Fantasy value in that role. In 2018, Ellison had two games with at least 11 PPR points, but he's more of a blocker than a receiving threat. Ignore him in all leagues on Draft Day.

Player News
  • Ellison took advantage of Evan Engram's injury-related absence from June minicamp, Matt Lombardo of NJ.com reports. Engram was sidelined with a minor hamstring injury that's expected to clear up before the start of training camp in late July. Meanwhile, Ellison made it through the offseason program in good health, after sitting out Week 17 of last season due to a concussion. He doesn't have any guaranteed money remaining on the final two seasons of his four-year, $18 million contract, but a lack of competition for the No. 2 job at tight end puts the 30-year-old in good position to keep his roster spot.

  • Giants' Rhett Ellison: Out for season finale
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ellison (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. With a healthy Evan Engram back in the lineup, Ellison caught just two passes for 18 yards the past three weeks, averaging 28.3 snaps per game in a blocking-focused role. The 30-year-old will head into 2019 with two seasons remaining on a four-year, $18 million contract, and it won't come as any surprise if the Giants decide he's too expensive for a backup tight end. Ellison did help his case this season with career-high marks for catches (25) and receiving yards (272), despite missing two games.

  • Giants' Rhett Ellison: In concussion protocol
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ellison (concussion) remains in the league-mandated protocol Thursday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. Ellison continues to nurse a head injury sustained during Sunday's loss to the Colts. The veteran did not practice Wednesday and is working with trainers on the side during Thursday's session. If Ellison were to sit out Week 17, Scott Simonson and Garrett Dickerson could receive increased roles behind Evan Engram.

  • Giants' Rhett Ellison: Exits game with concussion
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ellison is ruled out to return to Sunday's game against the Colts due to a concussion. Ellison exited Sunday's contest during the first quarter, and will need to clear the league-mandated concussion protocol before eventually retaking the field. Scott Simonson will serve as the top backup to starting tight end Evan Engram as long as Ellison remains sidelined.

  • Giants' Rhett Ellison: Shut out Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ellison failed to haul in his lone target in Sunday's loss to the Titans. It marks the second week in a row that Ellison has gone without a reception, as his offensive reps continue to drop. Evan Engram has been heavily involved in the offense since returning from a hamstring injury, leaving little room for Ellison in the game plan.
