RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Greg Ellis.
Ellis should provide a boost to the an Oakland pass rush that was almost non-existent last season. It's unclear how much playing time he will get, or even if he will play defensive end or linebacker; but he will at least be in the game in most third down situations and should rack up a few sacks. The Raiders view Ellis as a part time player right now; but like most reserves, Ellis' fantasy value will be increased if he is able to find more playing time.
Ellis racked up a career high 12.5 sacks in just 13 games in 2007 bookending DeMarcus Ware at OLB, and he should improve on that number with a full 16 game schedule.
Was on pace for eight sacks in 2006 before rupturing his Achilles tendon. Assuming he's recovered, he'll bookend DeMarcus Ware at OLB in the Cowboys pass rush and should come close to matching that sack rate.
Ellis has averaged over 7 1/2 sacks a year the last five seasons from his natural end position, but a forced shift to OLB in the Cowboys' 3-4 defense could jeopardize his production.
Ellis has led the Cowboys in sacks four straight seasons, but never cracked double digits. He could be hard-pressed to maintain his IDP production in the new 3-4 defense.
Ellis has averaged just over seven sacks, and just under 50 tackles, over the last three years. If Marcellus Wiley can jump-start the pass rush Ellis might see an uptick in those numbers.
Ellis had a solid year, recording 7 1/2 sacks, and while the Cowboys are probably hoping for a bit more out of him, another solid performance is about all that you can reasonably expect.
