RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Ellison is almost exclusively a blocking tight end, but did have 19 receptions and a touchdown last year with Kyle Rudolph missing seven games due to injury. Following Rudolph’s return in and the addition of fifth-round pick McCoyle Pruitt to the fold, his upside remains limited heading into 2015.

2014

Ellison is almost exclusively a blocking tight end, but did have five receptions last year after Kyle Rudolph was injured.

2013

Ellison will work as the number three tight end for the Vikings and mainly will be used for blocking in the team's run-first offense.

2012

Ellison, a 2012 fourth-round draft pick, figures to be not much more than a blocking specialist for Minnesota. With John Carlson and Kyle Rudolph around, he's far, far off the fantasy radar.
