Summary

Evan Engram is a glorified wide receiver because he's proven in two seasons blocking is not a strong suit. However, there's a place for a catch-first tight end in today's NFL, and Engram has the raw skill set to be among the most prolific pass catchers at the position. To reach that potential, Engram will need to improve his conditioning, ability to stay on the field, decision-making, and focus. He's earned a reputation for making spectacular plays look effortless and easy plays look hard; that won't lead to stardom if it persists. With Odell Beckham traded, Engram becomes the team's best vertical threat, and he should get opportunities to beat single coverage downfield presuming Eli Manning regains his willingness to throw deep. Engram's play digressed last year (45 catches for 477 yards and three touchdowns) after an impressive rookie season (64 receptions for 722 yards and six touchdowns), in part because of a concussion and knee and thigh injuries. With Saquon Barkley commanding 100+ targets, and Golden Tate and Sterling Shepard worthy of considerable target share, Engram will need an impressive preseason to earn a higher spot in the pecking order.

Giants | Evan Engram could be used as deep threat (Wed Jun 12, 09:17 PM) - New York Giants TE Evan Engram (hamstring) could be used more as a deep threat this season following the departure of WR Odell Beckham Jr. (Browns). Last season head coach Pat Shurmur set Engram out in motion, and even used him a few times to rush the ball. He has been sidelined due to a hamstring pull during offseason workouts.

Our View: We'll see if that comes to fruition, but Engram is certainly capable of that if asked. Last year, the Giants did not utilize him in that way. In 11 games last season, Engram ran 308 routes but his air-yards-per-target average was only 5.25 yards (23rd in the league). By comparison, Rob Gronkowski (12.14 yards, 1st) and Travis Kelce (9.16, 9th) were used much differently. We'll see if the Giants want to use that deep part of Engram's game more often in 2019.

Giants | Evan Engram hurt hamstring (Tue Jun 11, 11:52 AM) - Updating previous reports, New York Giants TE Evan Engram (hamstring) is recovering from a hamstring injury, according to head coach Pat Shurmur.

Our View: Engram should be ready by training camp, and the Giants are wisely being cautious with their starting tight end. He missed time last year due to a hamstring injury, so monitor his health status in August closely. In 11 games last season, Engram finished as the No. 13 fantasy tight end. This season, Engram is going off the board at TE6 (6.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Giants | Evan Engram not battling lingering injuries (Sun Jun 9, 10:25 AM) - New York Giants TE Evan Engram said the organization was being cautious by holding him out of the team's recent minicamp. He claimed that there are no injuries lingering from last season.

Our View: Engram was a big part of the passing game when Odell Beckham was out last year, but that was before the team added Golden Tate, and when Eli Manning was the starting quarterback. He's worth consideration in the TE6-8 range, but his situation is difficult to gauge without seeing how he riffs with #6 pick Daniel Jones.
