Rhett Ellison finds the end zone in loss to Cardinals

Giants tight end Rhett Ellison caught both of his targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

The touchdown was Ellison's first of the season, and his value should be fairly limited going forward with the return of Evan Engram to the lineup. Through seven games, Ellison has 12 catches for 109 yards and one touchdown.

Rhett Ellison catches three passes Thursday

Giants tight end Rhett Ellison caught three of his seven targets for 30 yards in the team's loss to the New England Patriots on Thursday Night Football.

Fantasy Impact

Ellison, normally a blocking-first tight end, was filling in for the injured Evan Engram on Thursday. With Engram expected back next week, Ellison will likely return to his reserve/blocking role in the offense.

Rhett Ellison catches four passes in win over Bears

Giants tight end Rhett Ellison caught four of his seven targets for 42 yards in the team's 30-27 overtime win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

While Ellison is considered a blocking tight end, he has seen an increased role when fellow tight end Evan Engram has had to miss games, as he did on Sunday. Engram will be questionable with a hamstring injury heading into the team's Week 14 matchup with the Redskins, and Ellison's value will be limited to deeper leagues even if Engram is unable to suit up.

Rhett Ellison inactive for Week 6

The Giants will host the Eagles on Thursday Night Football and be without their top two tight ends. Evan Engram is still recovering from a knee injury and backup Rhett Ellison will miss the game with a foot ailment. The G-Men are down to Scott Simonson and Garrett Dickerson.

Fantasy Impact

Ellison has played over 92% of New York's snaps and caught five passes while Engram has been sidelined. Simonson played 32 snaps over those two games and should get the starting nod but is well off the fantasy radar. This is a situation to avoid.

Rhett Ellison catches two passes Sunday

New York Giants tight end Rhett Ellison caught two passes for 17 yards in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

While Ellison is starting for the Giants in place of the injured Evan Engram, he is more of a blocking tight end than a threat in the passing game. With Engram expected back at some point in the next couple of weeks, he does not have a ton of value except for deep leagues.
