Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 10 vs NYJ (3 / 3 / 42 / 0 rec)
Rhett Ellison was the replacement for Engram but he cannot be compared to Engram unfortunately and is a very different player. Ellison does not have the athletic ability in terms of quickness or speed to blow up as a big threat in this offense but plays a small role for Jones. Ellison did have one nice play down the sideline, getting loose from the secondary and briefly escaping down the field for a nice first down. He didn't contribute much else in this game and belongs on the waiver wire.
2019 Week 7 vs ARI (2 / 2 / 33 / 1 rec)
Rhett Ellison caught the only passing touchdown for the Giants and it was a spectacular one. Ellison got between two Cardinal defenders down the field and hauled in a perfect pass from Jones before taking a hit over the goal line. Ellison was more the beneficiary of a great pass as there wasn't much separation between him and the secondary but he did show great concentration and toughness to complete the score. Ellison got a quick checkdown play later in the game but really didn't factor much as the game progressed. He won't get the looks / targets from Jones to be fantasy relevant with Engram also on the field.
2019 Week 6 vs NE (7 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)
Rhett Ellison was there to replace Evan Engram but unfortunately he lacks the athletic ability and speed of Engram. Ellison was dependable in the short game and has good hands to catch the ball in traffic, which we saw on Thursday night. He caught the ball well with a defender all over him and had another big first down as he unraveled to get open on the sideline. Ellison wasn't targeted much outside of this and his lack of downfield play making ability hurts his fantasy value. He's not a viable fantasy play in most leagues with Engram being out, his talent limits his potential as a player.
2019 Week 4 vs WAS (4 / 3 / 24 / 0 rec)
Ellison got the first target of the game and in general played a larger part in the game than expected. He did have the game clinching reception that included a broken tackle and drew pass interference in the end zone, but wasn't much of a factor in the game.
