Player Outlook
After a miserable 2021, Engram landed in about the best place he could have asked for. New Jaguars coach Doug Pederson has historically been the most tight end friendly coach in the league, with more than 30% of his team's targets going to tight ends during his time in Philadelphia. If Engram can get over his bad case of the drops and get back to his 2018 efficiency, Pederson's system should give him enough volume to finish as a top five tight end. But if he continues to struggle, he may fall behind Dan Arnold as the best pass-catching tight end in Jacksonville. Draft Engram as a backup tight end in the double-digit rounds.

  • Jaguars' Evan Engram: Not playing Thursday

    Engram won't play in the Hall of Fame Game against the Raiders on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Participants in this exhibition rarely trot out starters, so this comes as no surprise. Along with Engram, fellow tight end Chris Manhertz won't suit up, leaving Dan Arnold, Luke Farrell, Grayson Gunter and Gerrit Prince available to the Jags at the position.

  • Jaguars' Evan Engram: Joining Jaguars

    Engram is slated to sign a one-year deal with the Jaguars, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Per Schefter, Engram's looming pact is a fully-guaranteed $9 million deal that could reach $10 with incentives. The 27-year-old, who caught 46 of his 73 targets for 408 yards and three TDs in 15 games for the Giants in 2021, now figures to be a key target for Jacksonville's young franchise QB, Trevor Lawrence. In that context, Engram appears poised to see an uptick in targets in 2022, with a corresponding boost in his fantasy output a plausible outcome should he avoid injuries and maintain a higher level of consistency in the process.

  • Giants' Evan Engram: Modest season in Year 5

    Engram caught 46 of 73 targets for 408 yards and three TDs in 2021. The 23rd overall pick in 2017, Engram has been a disappointment in New York, though his modest production in 2021 can hardly be blamed on him. He'll be a free agent after the season, and he's likely to ply his wares elsewhere in 2022. There's still a ton of physical talent here (4.42 40), but Engram's focus has been inconsistent, and he's not much of a blocker.

  • Giants' Evan Engram: Catches one pass

    Engram caught one of his two targets for 12 yards Sunday against the Bears. Engram actually led the team in receiving in the process, underscoring how brutal the Giants passing offense has been of late. Jake Fromm will take over for Mike Glennon in Week 18, but it's unlikely he makes a significant difference.

  • Giants' Evan Engram: Finds end zone in loss

    Engram caught four of five targets for 17 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-10 loss to the Eagles. Engram's score was the Giants' only touchdown in the blowout loss. With New York's offense being led by either Mike Glennon or Jake Fromm, Engram will likely need to hit paydirt again Week 17 against the Bears to pay dividends for fantasy managers.

  • Giants' Evan Engram: Catches four passes in loss

    Engram caught four of five targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 21-6 loss to the Cowboys. Engram's underwhelming season continued Week 15, as he failed to see the end zone for the fifth straight week, despite averaging 5.0 targets per game during that stretch. Though Engram is seeing consistent involvement in New York's passing attack, it hasn't yielded much meaningful fantasy production. Engram looks like a low-upside fantasy play heading into the Giants' Week 16 game against the Eagles.

  • Giants' Evan Engram: Catches one pass

    Engram caught one of four targets Sunday for eight yards in the team's loss to the Chargers. Engram is an inconsistent player stuck in a terrible passing game. He's yet to reach even 65 receiving yards in any game this season.

  • Giants' Evan Engram: Makes four catches

    Engram recorded four receptions on five targets for 61 yards in Sunday's 20-9 loss to the Dolphins. Engram was able to take advantage of several absences among the Giants' receiving corps to lead the team in receiving yards. He overcame a largely dysfunctional Giants offense to record four double-digit gains, ranging from 10 to 18 yards. Though he hasn't posted exceptional numbers, Engram has found a consistent role in the offense by recording at least three receptions in seven of his nine games this season.

  • Giants' Evan Engram: Makes three catches

    Engram caught three passes for 37 yards on six targets against Philadelphia on Sunday. The efficiency was less than sparkling, but there's perhaps encouragement to be found in the fact that Engram's six targets were the second-highest total for the Giants on Sunday, trailing only Kenny Golladay's seven. The Giants passing game might need to lean on Engram again when they head to Miami in Week 13, especially if slot receivers Sterling Shepard and Kadarius Toney miss that game with their respective quadriceps injuries. The question of whether Engram and Daniel Jones can capitalize is of course very different, and not one that engenders confidence.

  • Giants' Evan Engram: Catches two passes Week 11

    Engram caught two of five targets for 12 yards in Monday's 30-10 loss to the Buccaneers. Engram played 90 percent of the team's offensive snaps Monday, the most of any Giants pass catcher. The team struggled moving the ball through the air against Tampa Bay, and Engram wasn't able to get much going after scoring a touchdown in both of his previous two games.

  • Giants' Evan Engram: Finds end zone again

    Engram recorded three receptions on three targets for 38 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 23-16 win over the Raiders. Engram tied for second on the team with only three targets, an indication of how little the Giants took to the air Sunday. However, he was efficient with his targets, highlighted by a 30-yard touchdown reception to cap the team's first offensive possession. Engram has now found the end zone in each of his last two games and has benefited from New York's banged-up receiving corps. That could change moving forward, however, as the Giants head into a Week 10 bye that will presumably allow them to get healthier.

  • Giants' Evan Engram: Scores in defeat

    Engram caught three of four targets for 15 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 20-17 loss to the Chiefs. Engram didn't get involved until the second half, but he put the Giants ahead with a five-yard touchdown catch to begin the fourth quarter. That marked the tight end's first trip to the end zone this season. Although usually hard to rely on, Engram's stock could benefit from New York's other offensive skill-position players being so banged up in advance of Week 9's matchup versus the Raiders.

  • Giants' Evan Engram: All clear for Monday

    Engram (calf) was not listed on the injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Chiefs, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Engram was never in any serious jeopardy of missing Monday's game and has an opportunity to build on his season-high marks from last week with Kenny Golladay (knee) and Saquon Barkley (ankle) once again unable to play. This could also be a showcase contest for the 2017 first-round pick given the ever-increasing trade rumors surrounding Engram as the team once again limps through a disappointing campaign.

  • Giants' Evan Engram: Still limited by calf injury

    Engram (calf) remained limited in practice Friday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Engram missed the first two games of the season due to his injured calf, but he has suited up for every game since despite frequent appearances on Big Blue's injury report. With trade rumors swirling around him heading into the Nov. 2 trade deadline, Engram will have an opportunity to entice potential suitors with a strong performance Monday against a Chiefs defense that has allowed a league-high 575 yards to tight ends through seven games.

  • Giants' Evan Engram: Dealing with calf issue

    Engram was limited by a calf injury at Thursday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Engram was absent from Wednesday's unofficial session, but he jumped back into some drills for the start of Week 8 prep Thursday. He'll have two more practices to prove his health ahead of Monday's visit to Kansas City. If he's available, Engram could see more work than usual due to the banged-up nature of the Giants' skill positions. WRs Kenny Golladay (knee) and Kadarius Toney (ankle) and RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) didn't practice Thursday, while WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) and TE Kaden Smith (knee) were limited like Engram.

  • Giants' Evan Engram: Spotted at practice Thursday

    Engram (undisclosed) practiced Thursday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. The tight end didn't take the practice field Wednesday, so his participation in Thursday's session suggests that he's trending in the right direction in advance of Monday night's game against Kansas City. The Giants' upcoming injury report will reveal Engram's participation level, but he'll presumably need to practice fully by the end of the week in order to avoid a Week 8 injury designation.

  • Giants' Evan Engram: Absent from practice Wednesday

    Engram isn't participating in Wednesday's practice, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. Engram is inside team facilities working with the training staff to begin Wednesday's session, so he's seemingly tending to an injury. The tight end was banged up heading into the Giants' Week 7 win over the Panthers, but he played through a calf injury en route to recording six receptions for 44 yards on eight targets. With the Giants set to play the Chiefs on Monday in Week 8, New York won't release its first official injury report of the week until Thursday.

  • Giants' Evan Engram: Tallies six receptions

    Engram recorded six receptions on eight targets for 44 yards in Sunday's 25-3 win over the Panthers. Engram led the team with six receptions, as he benefited from the absence of Kenny Golladay (knee), Sterling Shepard (hamstring) and Kadarius Toney (ankle). He worked primarily in the short areas of the field but did manage an 18-yard gain late in the first quarter to push the Giants deep into Carolina territory. Engram now has at least three receptions in each of his last four games, though his ability to rack up targets will be hurt as the team's receiving corps gets healthier.

  • Giants' Evan Engram: Suiting up Week 7

    Engram (calf) is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. Engram has been hindered by a calf injury all season, but after sitting out Weeks 1 and 2, he's suited up for each of the last four contests. His production has been less than inspiring -- 14 catches (on 21 targets) for 127 yards and no TDs -- but he should be a key part of the game plan in a skill-position group without Saquon Barkley (ankle), Kenny Golladay (knee), Sterling Shepard (hamstring) and Kadarius Toney (ankle). Engram's key competition for looks will come in the form of Darius Slayton (hamstring), Dante Pettis, John Ross (hamstring) and fellow tight end Kyle Rudolph.

  • Giants' Evan Engram: Expected to play Sunday

    Engram (calf), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, is expected to play, barring a setback in pregame warmups, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. After missing Thursday's practice, Engram returned to the field Friday as a limited participant. While Engram's ability to conclude the week as a practice participant bodes well for his chances of being available Week 7, fantasy managers will still want to make sure he avoids the inactive list ahead of Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff.
