Giants' Rhett Ellison: Targeted once
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellison caught his lone target during Monday's 27-23 win over the 49ers, gaining six yards.

The performance was a good one for the Giants, who tied the team's second-highest point total of the season. What was good for the team wasn't necessarily good for Ellison, who was held under 20 yards for the fourth consecutive week. He's not involved enough in what has been a pretty feeble passing attack to garner much attention, even Sunday against Tampa Bay's bottom-five pass defense, giving up 292 yards per game.

Giants' Rhett Ellison: No catches Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellison failed to bring in his only target during Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Redskins.

Ellison remains the clear No. 2 tight end behind Evan Engram, but served as a blocker on the vast majority of his offensive snaps. As long as Engram remains healthy, it does not appear that Ellison will receive enough offensive looks to warrant fantasy consideration.

Giants' Rhett Ellison: Minimal output in Engram's return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellison caught both of his targets for 11 yards during Monday's 23-20 loss to the Falcons.

Even though he's taking a clear backseat to a healthy Evan Engram, Ellison still logged exactly half of the available offensive snaps and should continue to retain some sort of role in the offense given his strengths as a blocker. However, with Engram being the far superior receiver, Ellison will likely go overlooked in the passing game more often than not, and Monday's performance was an example of exactly that.

Giants' Rhett Ellison: Practices fully Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellison (foot) practiced in full Thursday.

With Evan Engram holding the same status after missing three games due to a sprained MCL, the Giants' tight end group is intact for the first time since Week 3. Ellison was targeted just three times when Engram played the entirety of the team's first two games of the season, a level that the former is expected to fall back to after sitting out Week 6 himself with a foot injury.

Giants' Rhett Ellison: Sitting out Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellison (foot) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Eagles.

Ellison may have been able to suit up if the Giants played on Sunday this week, but the quick turnaround between games likely prevented him from recovering from the sore foot in time. While not a major part of the team's passing attack, Ellison's absence will loom larger with top tight end Evan Engram (knee) also sidelined for another week. The absences of Ellison and Engram leave Scott Simonson and Garrett Dickerson as the Giants' lone tight ends, with both of those healthy options expected to function mainly as blockers for any snaps they handle in Week 6.
