Engram suffered a concussion in the Week 2 loss to the Lions.

News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Tue Sep 19): Engram is set to buck the trend of rookie tight ends having trouble creating relevance in fantasy leagues. He's the one part of the Giants offense that was working against the Lions, and even when Odell Beckham is 100%, the failures of Brandon Marshall should open the door for him to be the #2 target.

Week 3: at Philadelphia Eagles

All TE vs PHI

FBG says: Tough matchup. The football world is buzzing over left tackle Ereck Flowers and the Giants' offensive line, but for all the wrong reasons. Fresh off a poor rookie season, Flowers has been comically bad in pass protection throughout training camp and into 2017. He's given up four of the Giants' eight sacks, including two that severely damaged second-quarter drives last week and another that forced a fumble. The abject failures of Flowers and the line as a whole have amplified Eli Manning's struggles, forcing him into mistakes and a low-impact "attack" that's produced an anemic 5.56 adjusted yards per attempt. Third-down back Shane Vereen (13 targets), slot man Sterling Shepard (12), and tight end Evan Engram (12) have been the engine for this passing game with Odell Beckham Jr. hobbled, and an engine like that is rarely the sign of a healthy unit generating any dynamism. Brandon Marshall's contested-ball prowesses has gone for naught, and Beckham's downfield dominance could struggle to manifest in such a neutered offense. Obviously, his return is deeply impactful and will only improve the Giants' passing outlook. But it's fair to wonder just how much impact there can be if Manning can't deliver the ball to him. Eli Manning has been ineffective thus far, targeted mercilessly by opposing pass rushes, and there's plenty of reason to expect the Eagles to join the party. Their pass rush is stout, led by early All-Pro candidate Brandon Graham (3 quarterback hits, 2.5 sacks) and stud interior rushers Fletcher Cox and Tim Jernigan (4 and 3.5 combined). There's enough uncertainty, though, to wonder whether Manning can break out of his shell this week against a banged-up Eagles secondary. Top cornerback Ronald Darby remains out with a dislocated ankle, and the starter on the other side, Jaylen Watkins, was lost in Week 2 to a hamstring strain. Strong safety Rodney McLeod joined Watkins with the same injury later in the game, and both are now very questionable for Week 3. Odell Beckham Jr.'s return should be huge for a receiving corps almost devoid of downfield or playmaking ability. With Darby out, the Eagles lack a shutdown presence in the secondary, and an undermanned unit sets the stage for a potential Beckham eruption.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs DET (7 / 4 / 49 / 1 rec)

The rookie provided perhaps the brightest spark in what was otherwise a dull and uninspiring effort by the Giants offense. Engram presents a big target for Eli Manning and was able to win the ball in contested situations, including a nicely zipped pass into the right flat that the tight end attacked with his hands and turned upfield quickly. The Giants' only touchdown of the game came on a beautifully designed play to Engram. Lined up as a nominal lead blocker in a two-point stance behind right guard, Engram appeared poised to pave the way for the running back. Instead, off play action, he leaked out of the backfield and shot down the seam. The Lions linebackers all played run and didn't keep tabs on the tight end, who had an easy pitch and catch with his quarterback. However, the two were not always in sync. An inaccurate pass from Manning on a crossing pattern meant Engram had to reach back for the football with one hand. The ball caromed off his outstretched glove, only to be deflected into the hands of a Lions defender for an interception. Engram could easily have notched another touchdown. A pair of red zone targets was well defended by the Lions; the first saw Engram tackled just shy of the goal line, while the second saw a deep pass broken up at the last second.

2017 Week 1 vs DAL (5 / 4 / 44 / 0 rec)

Evan Engram was not a factor in this game but it is unfair to expect much from a rookie in that environment. The passing game for the Giants lacked any real power or consistency and was downright pitiful at times. Engram worked underneath routes for the most part and got his hands on a few balls despite his Quarterback struggling. Engram got some looks on drag/out and patterns over the middle that he was able to haul in a few balls. He had a short catch negated by an illegal offensive penalty from another player. Engram got open down the sideline for one play and looked good securing the pass down the field for the Giants biggest play of the night. Engram will have much better opportunities to showcase his athletic talent, this was just not one of those games. The Giants still lack a presence over the middle and Manning will look to the rookie to see if he can fill that role.

Giants | Evan Engram limited Thursday (Thu Sep 21, 02:34 PM) - New York Giants TE Evan Engram (concussion) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Our View: If Engram plays, he could be a decent start this week, as he was the only thing which looked good in the whole Giants offense against Detroit. That said, his targets only slightly went up, while both his catches and yards stayed static. The difference is the touchdown, which makes him a little boom or bust. He's a decent TE2, with the upside for more.

Giants | Evan Engram listed as limited (Wed Sep 20, 06:42 PM) - New York Giants TE Evan Engram (concussion) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Our View: Engram is in the concussion protocol, and part of that includes wearing a helmet and observing practice. It's Wednesday and Engram is limited, so that's a good sign for his availability in Week 3 although he's certainly not guaranteed to play. The Giants offense is struggling, but the rookie TE from Ole Miss has eight catches for 93 yards and a touchdown in two games.
