RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Ellison suffered a setback during Week 17 of the 2015 season when he tore his patellar tendon, but the Vikings elected to re-sign their 6-foot-5, 250 pound tight end in March of 2016. Recovery from the injury is slated to keep him limited until well into the summer, but he figures to once again make the team and provide blocking in both the pass and run game. In 15 appearances throughout his 2015 campaign, Ellison had 11 catches for 124 yards and a touchdown. With that production, it remains clear that Kyle Rudolph leads the tight end corps in fantasy value by far, with MyCole Pruitt slightly above Ellison as well.

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.
