New York Giants TE Rhett Ellison's three receptions in Week 3 all came after TE Evan Engram (knee) left the game, and Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com expects Ellison to 'provide steady production' as the starter against the New Orleans Saints in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Ellison doesn't have the same upside as Engram, but he could make a serviceable replacement for Jordan Reed with Washington on bye or save you some cap space in DFS contests.

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent TE Rhett Ellison agreed to terms with the New York Giants on Thursday, March 9, on a four-year, $18 million contract, including an $8 million signing bonus.
Huddle Up: Ellison is a better blocker than anyone else New York has at the position, which may be enough to give him an edge to become the starter ahead of Will Tye and Jerell Adams. However, with Odell Beckham Jr., Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard already in tow, Ellison will be hard-pressed to realize anything more than low-end TE2 value.

The Minnesota Vikings re-signed TE Rhett Ellison Tuesday, March 15, on a one-year deal worth $2.25 million, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Ellison suffered a knee injury late in the 2015 season so he may begin 2016 on the PUP. He's more of a blocker and special teams contributor than a fantasy helper, so this move barely registers on the fantasy radar.
