RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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.
