From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 9): Engram was the #1 target in the Giants pass offense by a good margin and Sterling Shepard might miss the Week 2 matchup with the Bills due to a concussion.

Week 2: vs Buffalo Bills

All TE vs BUF

FBG says: Bad matchup. Eli Manning is going to get a lot of hate for his performance, and the team brought in Daniel Jones once the game got out of hand. The reality is that Manning with no Golden Tate and no Odell Beckham did not play that poorly. He completed 68% of his passes with most of the offense running through tight end Evan Engram who had a monster game with 11 receptions for 116 yards. Manning did not turn the ball over, and the offensive line did a decent job in protection with just one sack against one of the best secondaries in football. This is an offense that while they had drives stall out because of penalties or ill-timed incompletions, exceeded most of our expectations. The Bills secondary continued its dominant performance that we saw last season where it was one of the best secondaries in football allowing just 179 yards per game. The Bills secondary is led by shut-down corner Tre'Davious White and second-year player Levi Wallace who continues his tremendous play from last season. If there is a weakness in this secondary it is slot corner Taron Johnson who struggled last week in defending Jamison Crowder who caught 14 passes. The Bills safeties are also top-notch in Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer. The pass rush for the Bills continues to be a dominant force as they got to Sam Darnold four times last week. All-in-all this is one of the top defenses in football and should give the Giants all they can handle this week.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 1 vs DAL (14 / 11 / 116 / 1 rec)

Evan Engram played very well on Sunday and was the only consistent weapon the Giants had in the passing game. Engram is tough to cover over the middle and has the speed/agility to get separation from linebackers. He grabbed a short seam route early in the game and held onto the ball after a big hit. Engram scored later in the redzone on a rollout play. He faked the block before releasing and was wide open in the endzone. Engram caught several more plays over the middle, showing excellent hands as he had a lot of plays in traffic. He made some catches on off target throws and really helped the Giants to move the ball. Engram's issue has mainly been his health. He has an incredible opportunity to produce in this offense this season and should be a valuable fantasy play almost every week.

Giants | Evan Engram in for huge role (Wed Sep 4, 10:03 AM) - New York Giants TE Evan Engram is slated to play a massive role as the team's big-play receiver, and the team has been careful with him most of the summer.

Our View: That's music to the ears of Fantasy GMs everywhere. Engram can be a top-5 fantasy tight end, especially with this larger role. Even if (when?) rookie Daniel Jones takes over as the starting quarterback, Engram should still be a huge part of the passing game.
