TE Rhett Ellison - Minnesota Vikings
|6-5, 251||Born: 10-3-1988||College: Southern California||Drafted: Round 4|
Week 16: at Miami Dolphins
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Teddy Bridgewater now has two consecutive 300+ passing yards games under his belt, with 31/41 for 315 yards, one TD and two interceptions thrown at Detroit (with four sacks taken for -31) last week. During that two-game hot streak, he's relied on Charles Johnson (15 targets for 9/175/1 receiving), Greg Jennings (12 for 8/95/1), Jairus Wright (11 for 8/172/1), Kyle Rudolph (nine for 9/78/0) and Matt Asiata (11 for 10/60/0) the most. The Vikings' rookie signal caller is growing into a legitimate NFL quarterback as 2014 goes along - a good progression for Minnesota. The Dolphins' pass D coughed up 21/35 for 287 yards, two TDs and one interception to Tom Brady last week (zero sacks), and allowed 25/33 for 264 net yards, two TDs and one interception (with one sack for -5 yards) to Joe Flacco two weeks ago. Not too good, friends. To date, the Dolphins are ranked fourth in the NFL averaging 209.2 net passing yards allowed per game, with 22 passing scores given up - but they are playing substantially worse than their season average would indicate here in December. Advantage, Minnesota.

2014 Week 15 vs DET (2 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec)
As usual, the H-back saw very little use on offense but did have one crazy play at the start of the fourth quarter. On the play, a dump pass from Teddy Bridgewater, a defender threw himself at Ellison to knock him over. Since he didn't try to wrap him up, all he really achieved was knocking Ellison off-balance. Ellison then spun through the grasp of two other defenders, kept himself upright with his left hand, and almost slipped another tackle but was brought down by his jersey.
