Giants' Rhett Ellison: Suffers ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellison injured his ankle during Sunday's 40-16 win over Washington, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Ellison has been surprisingly efficient with his opportunities in the passing game, but they're few and far between when Evan Engram is available, as was the case during Sunday's easy victory. Scott Simonson will fill Ellison's blocking role if the 30-year-old isn't available for Week 15 against Tennessee.

Giants' Rhett Ellison: Returning to backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellison is expected to return to a reserve role at tight end Sunday against the Redskins with Evan Engram (hamstring) cleared to play after missing the previous two contests, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

While Engram was out, Ellison played 92.5 percent of the Giants' offensive snaps, parlaying the spike in usage into eight receptions for 119 yards across 12 targets. Ellison's snap count will dip with Engram back in the fold, though Raanan notes that the latter will be deployed primarily in obvious passing scenarios. That will allow Ellison, a superior to blocker, to retain a healthy amount of playing time, but his fantasy viability will take a hit nonetheless.

Giants' Rhett Ellison: Finishes second on team in targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellison caught four of seven targets for 42 yards in Sunday's 30-27 overtime win over the Bears.

With Evan Engram (hamstring) out for another contest, Ellison filled a three-down role (94 percent snap share) for the fifth time this season. The 30-year-old has averaged 3.2 catches for 40.8 yards on 4.8 targets in the five games Engram has either missed or barely played in this season, albeit with just one touchdown to show for the increased workload. The Giants do hope to get Engram back in the lineup for Week 14 at Washington, but there's no guarantee it actually happens.

Giants' Rhett Ellison: Starting assignment on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellison is expected to start and handle the bulk of the snaps at tight end Sunday against the Bears with the Giants ruling Evan Engram (hamstring) out for the contest, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

After tweaking his hamstring in pregame warmups, Engram sat out the Week 12 loss to the Eagles, allowing Ellison to play 89 percent of the Giants' offensive snaps. Ellison parlayed the heightened workload into a career-high 77 yards on four receptions and drew six total targets on the day. Though running back Saquon Barkley and wide receivers Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard will all rank ahead of him in the pass-catching hierarchy, Ellison should represent the clear fourth option in the Giants' air attack in Week 13, as the team hasn't gotten much from its depth wideouts this season. A repeat of his performance against the Eagles shouldn't be expected, but Ellison should draw enough looks to make him a decent streaming option in deeper leagues and in any format that starts two tight ends.

Giants' Rhett Ellison: Sets career high in yardage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellison caught four of six targets for 77 yards during Sunday's 25-22 loss to the Eagles.

Ellison hadn't recorded more than three catches or 39 receiving yards in any game this season, but he was thrust into a larger role after Evan Engram hurt his hamstring in warmups, according to Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record. He responded with several sizable gains en route to a new career high in receiving yardage. It's unclear at this point if Engram will be sidelined next Sunday against the Bears, but Ellison could play a large role once again if he is.
