After a couple of quiet weeks from Ellingson, he returned to form and had a monster of a night in Vancouver. Putting up 148 yards and making a handful of catches that he probably shouldn’t have made, he made a huge difference to the Elks’ offence. They will continue to use Ellingson as much as possible I’m sure, and it wouldn’t surprise me at all to see him on this list, again and again, this season.
