Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 16 vs GB (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Ellison was on the field for just 21 offensive snaps, primarily as an extra blocker.
2016 Week 14 vs JAX (2 / 1 / 0 / 0 rec)
Ellison was on the field for just under half the offensive plays, mostly as a blocker. He continues to contribute as a receiver sporadically but not enough to really impact the overall game plan.
2016 Week 13 vs DAL (1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Ellison was only on the field for about a quarter of the offensive plays, and was targeted once on a 3rd and 16. He was only able to catch the ball for six yards though.
2016 Week 12 vs DET (2 / 1 / 21 / 0 rec)
Ellison continues to primarily be a blocker, but was the recipient of one of the few longer passes Sam Bradford threw all day. On the play, Ellison ran straight down the sideline, but was well covered. Bradford threw the ball a bit short, and Ellison turned his body and extended it to make a nice catch.
2016 Week 11 vs ARI (3 / 1 / -2 / 0 rec)
Ellison's primary role is blocking, and while he is occasionally targeted in the passing game, it is usually when Sam Bradford has to check down, something which the offensive line does not afford the time to do very frequently.
2016 Week 10 vs WAS (2 / 2 / 8 / 0 rec)
Ellison was on the field for just 17 plays, and both of his targets were on short passes. The second one he caught with a defender draped over his back.
2016 Week 9 vs DET (1 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec, 1 / 1 / 1 rush)
Ellison was on the field for 26 offensive snaps, mostly blocking, but did have a nice catch early on and a key touchdown near the end of the game, putting the Vikings up 16-13. He was hit just after he crossed the goal line and lost the ball, but because it broke the plane before he lost possession, there was no fumble.
2016 Week 4 vs NYG (1 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)
Rhett Ellison was relegated to blocking duty and special teams play, but was the target of one dump off pass by the quarterback.
2016 Week 3 vs CAR (1 / 1 / 18 / 0 rec)
Ellison spent most of his 21 offensive snaps blocking, with the occasional route thrown in to keep things interesting. He did make a nice catch and run for an 18-yard gain and a first down. The rest of his time on the field was spent with the special teams unit.
