Rhett Ellison is ruled out to return to Sunday's game against the Colts due to a concussion.
Ellison exited Sunday's contest during the first quarter, and will need to clear the league-mandated concussion protocol before eventually retaking the field. Scott Simonson will serve as the top backup to starting tight end Evan Engram as long as Ellison remains sidelined.
NYG TE Rhett Ellison - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 14 at Washington Redskins
Rhett Ellison had four catches for 42 yards last week against the Bears. Those seem like top-end numbers for the veteran backup, as it was his second-largest yardage total of the year, despite the frequent absence of Evan Engram from the lineup. Ellison’s seven targets last week make him a reasonable desperation streaming option in large leagues, but in most cases, he should remain on waivers.
With Engram set to play, Ellison's fantasy value went from limited to miniscule. He should definitely be on waivers.
