WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison has announced his retirement from the NFL.

Ellison played eight seasons in the NFL, spending the last three years of his career with the Giants after five seasons with the Vikings. The former fourth-round pick of Minnesota was an exceptional teammate by all accounts, and he was an excellent run blocker that helped pave the way during Adrian Peterson's 2012 MVP campaign. As a receiver, Ellison caught 118 passes for 1,189 yards and seven touchdowns in his career. We wish the 31-year-old the best of luck moving forward post football.

Rhett Ellison (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 17.

Ellison's season ends with 18 receptions for 167 yards and one touchdown in ten games. The veteran tight end is entering the final year of his contract in 2020.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison (concussion) has officially been ruled out for Week 13.

Evan Engram (foot) is also out again, so rookie Kaden Smith should draw another start and is worth targeting as a streaming option in a game that New York a) lacks healthy weapons, and b) probably needs to score points in to keep up with Aaron Rodgers. Hopefully Ellison can get cleared for Week 14.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison (concussion) has  been ruled out for Week 12.

Ellison has not made enough progress through concussion protocol to avoid being ruled out ahead of the weekend, and now the Giants are without both he and Evan Engram (foot) this Sunday against the Giants. Hopefully Ellison is feeling better soon.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 17.

Ellison didn't practice all week, and hopefully he's feeling better soon as he continues to deal with his concussion. Ellison's season ends with 25 receptions for 272 yards and a touchdown, and his receptions and yardage marks set new career-highs. He was getting more playing time over 2017 first-round pick Evan Engram for parts of the year, but ultimately he's a bette real-life asset for the Giants than he is a big fantasy contributor. He'll likely to undrafted in 2019 fantasy drafts.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison caught two passes for 18 yards in Sunday's loss to Indianapolis.

Ellison is off the fantasy radar with Evan Engram re-emerging in recent weeks, but the veteran will look to finish strong next week against the Cowboys.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison did not catch a pass in Week 15.

Meanwhile, Evan Engram led the Giants in receiving with 75 yards and appears to have reclaimed the top tight-end spot for the team. Ellison shouldn't be in fantasy lineups with titles on the line.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison catches four passes in Week 13.

Ellison gained 42 yards on his four receptions against the Bears. He's currently the primary tight end for the Giants, but he's not a recommended fantasy option at the moment.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison catches four passes in Giants' loss.

Ellison gained 77 yards on his four receptions against the Eagles, as he worked as the clear primary tight end with Evan Engram (hamstring) not playing in the game after an injury in pre-game warmups. This was a strong performance by Ellison, who is someone worth keeping an eye on if you need TE help down the stretch. He might currently be a preferred option over Engram, even if Engram is healthy.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison catches one pass in Week 12.

Ellison gained 12 yards on his lone reception against the Bucs. He's more of a real-life contributor than a fantasy asset.

Rhett Ellison catches one pass in Monday Night Football win over the Niners.

It went for six yards. Ellison isn't a recommended fantasy option as New York's main blocking tight end.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison catches two passes in Week 7.

Ellison gained 11 yards on his tow receptions against the Falcons, and he nearly scored a touchdown on a diving attempt by the goal line with his team attempting to stage a comeback. Ellison isn't a fantasy option right now, especially with Evan Engram (knee) back in the lineup for the Giants.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison (foot) is a full participant in practice.

Ellison should be ready to go on Monday night after missing last Thursday's game with a foot injury. With Evan Engram (knee) also looking good for Week 7, Ellison is not a recommended fantasy option against the Falcons.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison (foot) is inactive against the Eagles.

Ellison was limited in practice the last two days, but he's not playing tonight. With Evan Engram (knee) also out, the passing game of the Giants is going to run through the wide receivers and Saquon Barkley.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison caught two passes for 17 yards in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

Ellison is expected to get another week as New York's top tight end with Evan Engram (knee) still recovering on a short week, but he's mostly a key blocker for the Giants. Keep him on the waiver wire for Week 6.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison catches three passes against the Saints.

Ellison gained 29 yards on his three receptions (five targets) in the Week 4 loss. With Evan Engram (knee) week-to-week, Ellison is likely to remain the top tight end for the Giants in Week 5 agaisnt Carolina.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison scores in Week 3.

Starer Evan Engram went down with a knee injury in the win against Houston, so Ellison stepped up into a full-time role for the Giants. Ellison caught all three of his targets, gaining 39 yards with the touchdown in the victory. The touchdown was a 16-yarder on a pinpoint throw to the end zone by Eli Manning. If Engram's injury is serious, Ellison would at least have streaming value moving forward. He's a reliable player the Giants clearly value.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison catches two passes in Week 2.

Ellison gained five yards on his two receptions versus Dallas. He’s not a fantasy option at the moment.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison leads team in receiving as Giants pickup third win of the season.

Ellison caught five passes for 63 yards in the 18-10 victory. Mostly used as a blocker, Ellison finishes the season with 24 receptions for 235 yards and two touchdowns. He won't be a fantasy option in 2018.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison leads team in receiving as Giants fall to 2-13.

Ellison caught four passes for 60 yards in the 23-0 loss. Mostly used as a blocker, he was forced into a bigger role when Evan Engram (ribs) left the game. Even if Engram is done for the year, Ellison is unlikely to make much of an impact in Week 17.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison scores in Giants' loss.

Ellison caught four of five targets for 20 yards and a touchdown against the Cowboys. It's good to see him get in the end zone, but Ellison doesn't normally get enough looks in the passing game to be a fantasy option.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison catches one pass versus the Raiders.

Ellison gained five yards on his lone reception, and he's not a recommended fantasy option, as his role isn't big enough right now.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison caught two passes for 21 yards in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison scores in Week 4.

Ellison caught two passes (on two targets) for 11 yards against the Bucs, including the touchdown which came on Eli Manning scrambling and finding Ellison wide open in the middle of the end zone. Ellison is not a reliable fantasy option right now, as he's more of a real-life contributor.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Rhett Ellison catches two passes in Giants' loss.

Ellison had 21 yards against the Lions. He's a better asset for the Giants than he is for your fantasy team.

Rhett Ellison | Retired TE

Giants sign TE Rhett Ellison.

Ellison is a versatile H-back type that can play both fullback and tight end. He'll be more of a help to the Giants' offense than he will be a fantasy team. Ellison shouldn't be drafted in 2017 fantasy drafts.
