Week 4 vs. New Orleans Saints
Rhett Ellison caught all three balls thrown his way last week for 39 yards and a touchdown. With Evan Engram expected to miss time with a knee sprain, Ellison is the most likely beneficiary. The Giants have routinely gotten the most out of the tight end position, turning players like Will Tye, Kevin Boss and Martellus Bennett into consistent fantasy starters during Eli Manning’s tenure.
While the Saints have been abysmal against the pass this year—10 touchdown passes allowed through three games—they’ve actually covered the tight end fairly well, allowing only 140 total yards and eight receptions to the position. Ellison is still a sneaky streaming option in a game that should feature a lot of passing. Fantasy owners feeling a little risky and desperate at the position should consider him.
