New York Giants TE Rhett Ellison caught three passes for 42 yards against the New York Jets in Week 10. He was targeted three times during the game.
Huddle Up: Ellison was in the starting lineup with Evan Engram ruled out and may return to the backup role if Engram is able to play after the Week 11 bye. Fantasy players in all leagues should avoid Ellison moving forward.

New York Giants TE Rhett Ellison could move up to the top spot on the depth chart if the team elects to move TE Evan Engram at the NFL trade deadline. Ellison is reportedly a favorite of head coach Pat Shurmur, and the team could deal Engram and use Ellison in a limited pass-catching role where he's been effective at times.
Huddle Up: Even if Ellison were to slide up to the top spot of the depth chart, he has proven to have limitations. Expect 40-50 yards per game with an occasional touchdown, and that might be the ceiling of his fantasy production. That all hinges on whether or not the team parts with Engram, which isn't a certainty.

New York Giants TE Rhett Ellison ended up with two grabs for 33 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Ellison saw plenty of action despite the return of Evan Engram, as the Giants played it safe with their starter returning from injury with wet and rainy conditions. Despite the touchdown, Ellison is only worth a roster spot the deepest of fantasy leagues in Week 8 at Detroit.

New York Giants TE Rhett Ellison is projected to start the Week 6 game against the New England Patriots, with TE Garrett Dickerson as the backup, with TE Evan Engram (knee) sidelined.
Huddle Up: Ellison might be worth a look as a low-end streaming option in the very deepest of fantasy leagues if you're absolutely desperate due to injuries and/or bye weeks diluting the pool. Still, expectations should be rather low, although he could see several targets with injuries decimating the G-Men at all skill positions.
