Vikings | Rhett Ellison, MarQueis Gray to pick up slack

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 13:04:04 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TEs Rhett Ellison and MarQueis Gray are likely to pick up the slack at the tight end position with TE Kyle Rudolph (hernia) out at least six weeks. Gray saw most of the work in passing situations in Week 3 after Rudolph came out. The team could also promote TE Chase Ford to the active roster.

Fantasy Tip: Gray is likely to make the bigger fantasy impact, and he has familiarity with offensive coordinator Norv Turner from their time in Cleveland. Gray will be a very cheap option at FantasyScore, but you'd likely be better off looking elsewhere.
