Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 12 vs PHI (6 / 4 / 77 / 0 rec)
Ellison was repeatedly left open by the Eagles in a good sign for tight ends facing Philadelphia in upcoming weeks. He did have one pass sail through his hands, but had a few long catch and runs, including one at a key juncture in the fourth quarter. He could have some value as a streamer if Engram is out for a multiple games.
2018 Week 7 vs ATL (2 / 2 / 11 / 0 rec)
Backup tight end Rhett Ellison was seldom targeted, with both his catches coming in the red zone as the Giants sputtered. Ellison was unfortunate not to cash in with a touchdown on his second catch; his despairing reach for the goal line fell just inches short.
2018 Week 5 vs CAR (3 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)
Rhett Ellison does not bring a significant threat to the tight end position for the Giants. He had a nice 2 point conversion after direction from Manning got him in the right spot but his talent pales in comparison to Evan Engram. Leave him on the waivers.
2018 Week 4 vs NO (5 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)
Rhett Ellison is a poor replacement for Evan Engram and this was evident on Sunday. He has the awareness and hands for the position but doesn't have the talent to get open like Engram. Manning almost found him the endzone in the second half but the pass was broken up with perfect timing from the Saints defense. He is not worth rostering at this point.
2018 Week 3 vs HOU (3 / 3 / 39 / 1 rec)
Rhett Ellison was forced into a bigger role than normal due to the injury sustained by Engram. Ellison made the most of this opportunity and got into the endzone. He shook his man at the line of scrimmage and got a step on a go route in the redzone which allowed Manning to fire a pass quickly for the score. Ellison got his hands on a few short balls otherwise, displaying some quickness and an ability to get open at times. He does not possess the talent of Engram however and will not be reliable in this offense.
