Rhett Ellison Fantasy Football News 2019

Giants TE Rhett Ellison has been placed in the concussion protocol. A Week 11 bye helps his chances of not missing a game. His status for Week 12 will only matter if TE Evan Engram remains out with his foot injury.

Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) is out for Sunday's game against the Jets. We'll see if he can get back on the field after New York's Week 11 bye. Engram's absence leaves Rhett Ellison as the Giants' lead TE this weekend. He's averaged 5.4 targets in 5 games without Engram over the last 2 seasons, including a 7-target outing vs. the Patriots back in Week 6. Ellison is squarely on the Week 10 spot-start radar.

Giants TE Evan Engram will not play Sunday because of the mid-foot sprain to his left foot, according to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano. Engram reportedly called it a "low-grade" sprain and said it's not a Lisfranc injury. He hopes to return after the well-timed Week 11 bye. Rhett Ellison should start in Engram's place. Ellison ranked 3rd in the team with 7 targets when Engram missed the Week 6 loss to New England. Ellison also totaled 20 targets across 4 games he played without Engram in the lineup last season -- including 6 targets apiece in weeks 12 and 13. He's in the fantasy-starter mix for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) is out for Thursday night's game against the Patriots. He's reportedly dealing with a minor MCL sprain and has a shot to return for Week 7. Engram's absence leaves Rhett Ellison as New York's top TE. Hopefully you can do better in your fantasy lineup.

Giants TE Evan Engram (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Bears. He didn't practice all week and isn't a lock to return for Week 14. Rhett Ellison will serve as New York's lead TE this weekend but would be a desperation fantasy play.

Giants TE Evan Engram (hamstring) will miss his 2nd straight practice on Thursday, HC Pat Shurmur said. He's a long shot to play against the Bears this weekend. That'll leave Rhett Ellison as New York's lead TE, but he'd be a desperation fantasy play.

Giants TE Rhett Ellison (foot) is inactive for tonight's game against the Eagles. TE Evan Engram (knee) is also out. That leaves Scott Simonson as New York's lead TE. He's obviously not a fantasy option. Odell Beckham, Sterling Shepard and Saquon Barkley will dominate targets for the G-Men.

Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) has been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Eagles. He returned to practice this week, putting him on track to return for Week 7. Rhett Ellison gets another game as New York's lead TE but would be a desperation fantasy play.

Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (knee, ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Dolphins. Chase Ford and Rhett Ellison will handle TE duties, but neither is a fantasy option.

Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (knee, ankle) is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. That leaves Minnesota with Chase Ford and Rhett Ellison at TE. Neither is a fantasy option vs. Miami’s top-shelf TE defense.

The Vikings get a Week 10 bye after Sunday's home victory over Washington. TE Kyle Rudolph said Sunday that he hopes to return to the field when his team faces the Bears on Nov. 16. "I've got to get myself in football shape," he told the St. Paul Pioneer Press about his return from sports hernia surgery. "In my mind, I have two weeks to get ready so I'm going to do everything I can to get out there then." Chase Ford has produced well in Rudolph's absence, so we'll be curious to see how much of his original role Rudolph will immediately assume upon his return. Rudolph did say that he won't return until he's 100% after his initial August injury deteriorated into the hernia while he tried to play through it at the start of the season.

Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph needs sports hernia surgery and is expected to miss about 6 weeks, according to NFL Network's Albert Breer.  Note that the timetable for this type of injury widely varies.  It's a big blow to a Vikings team short on pass catchers and TE depth.  Rhett Ellison is next up on the depth chart.  The 2012 4th-round pick goes 6'5, 250 pounds and is a mediocre athlete.  He has just 14 catches in 3 seasons.  Ellison will be worth monitoring, but we wouldn't bother adding him to your fantasy roster.  Rudolph is droppable in leagues of 10 or fewer teams.
