Evan Engram (calf) is officially active for the Giants.
Engram isn’t at 100%, but he’s out there for the Giants against the Panthers. Six teams are on a bye, but a banged-up Engram still carries some risk as a TE1 option in Week 7 fantasy lineups.
Evan Engram (calf) is officially questionable for Sunday.
Engram looks like he'll be a true game-time call for Week 7 against the Panthers, and the good news is the Giants play at 1:00 PM ET, so his status will be known on Sunday morning.
Evan Engram (calf) has been ruled out for Week 2.
Engram will miss his second game in a row to open the season, as the short week made it difficult for him to get healthy enough to go. Hopefully, the long layoff before Week 3 will lead to Engram and Saquon Barkley both being unleashed as New York tries to get the offense off the ground—though pass protection could remain an issue.
Evan Engram (calf) officially out for Week 1.
Engram is considered week-to-week, but he's expected to return sooner rather than later after the Giants opted against putting him on short-term injured reserve to open the regular season.
Evan Engram (calf) did not practice today.
Engram's status is much more cloudy than either Saquon Barkley (knee) or Kenny Golladay (hamstring), and it's looking like he will be out for at least the opener at this point. If so, Kyle Rudolph and Kaden Smith will both be touchdown-dependent options against the Broncos.
Evan Engram leaves game with apparent leg injury.
Engram just went inside to the locker room, and it's officially being called a calf injury for him. The athletic tight end was having a strong summer, so this is unfortunate with the regular season just a couple of weeks away. We'd say Engram is clearly in danger of missing Week 1—and potentially a few weeks depending on the extent of the injury. More information on his status should be available within the next couple of days.
Evan Engram (calf) is officially active for Sunday night.
Engram was listed as questionable but was expected to be ready to go for tonight against the Browns. At a weak position, Engram is in the TE1 mix for the second week of the fantasy playoffs.
Evan Engram (calf) is questionable for Week 15.
Engram was a Friday add to the injury report, so this is obviously not a good sign for his status. That said, we can hope it's something minor that won't prevent him from playing on Sunday night. If Engram is unable to go, Kaden Smith or one of the Cleveland tight ends would at least be a quality backup option.
The Giants picked up Evan Engram's fifth-year option.
Engram has battled injuries throughout his career, but he's shown major flashes, and brings some size to the overall receiving group for the Giants. Engram has caught at least 44 passes in each of his first three NFL seasons.
Evan Engram will have foot surgery.
Engram says that his foot just didn't get better, so he's having surgery to stabilize the foot. This should be a minor procedure, and Engram should get to 100% by the start of training camp at the latest.
The Giants have placed Evan Engram (foot) on injured reserve.
New York had been holding out hope that Engram—who has been out since going down in Week 9—would be able to return this season, but foot injuries can be tricky, and his 2019 campaign is now over. In eight games, the former first-round pick caught 44 passes for 467 yards and three touchdowns for what was looking like a re-emergence, so it's unfortunate that he had to deal with another injury. The talent is there for high-end TE1 production next season, but Engram will have missed 14-of-48 possible games since entering the league, and it will be interesting to see if the Giants make a coaching change. For now, consider Engram a solid TE1 in drafts this summer.
Evan Engram (foot) has been ruled out for Week 15.
The Giants are taking a cautious approach with Engram, who will miss his fifth consecutive game. Engram is probably no better than 50/50 to return for fantasy championship matchups next week.
Evan Engram (foot) was officially limited in today's practice.
As stated yesterday, it's tough to feel great about Engram's game status until he can get a full practice in. We'll see how Engram is listed on the final Week 15 injury report tomorrow.
Evan Engram (foot) was officially limited in today's practice.
Engram has been recording limited practice sessions, but it's difficult to feel great about his status until he gets up to a full participant. We'll update you on Engram's Thursday and Friday practice status.
Evan Engram (foot) has been ruled out for Monday night.
It was looking like Engram might be able to make his return to the lineup this week, but he's still out and will miss his fourth consecutive game. Engram being out is probably a boost for Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate, and Darius Slayton against the Eagles.
Evan Engram (foot) officially remains limited in practice.
We'd feel better about Engram if he was able to get in a full practice, but let's see how he's listed on the final Week 14 injury report when it's released tomorrow. Ideally, he'll avoid a questionable tag so that his status is clear heading into Sunday's slate.
Evan Engram (foot) was officially limited in today's practice.
This is a promising start to the week of practice for Engram, and he looks to have a pretty good chance of suiting up against the Eagles on Monday night. We'll track the athletic tight end's practice status the next couple of days.
Evan Engram (foot) has been ruled out for Week 13.
Engram is getting closer to a return from his foot sprain, but the Giants are playing things safe with their starting tight end. Sterling Shepard should be set for a good number of targets this week against the Packers.
Evan Engram (foot) officially did not practice today.
This isn't a great start to the week for Engram, who might be unlikely to return from his foot injury this Sunday considering the Giants are out of playoff contention. We'll let you know how Engram is listed on the final Week 13 injury report when it's released on Friday. He would probably do well to be listed as questionable.
The Giants ruled out Evan Engram (foot) for Week 12.
Engram has not practiced this week, so this is not a surprise. The athletic tight end is currently on the low-end of his expected recovery timetable, and this will be his second consecutive missed game. Ideally, Engram will return for next week; but fantasy owners should have him by Week 14 for the start of most fantasy playoffs.
Evan Engram (foot) officially did not practice today.
It's only Wednesday, but a non-participation coming off the bye isn't a great start to the week for Engram. Hopefully the athletic tight end can at least hit the practice field on a limited basis tomorrow.
Evan Engram (foot) has officially been ruled out for Week 10.
This was fully expected, but the hope is that Engram will be able to return to the lineup in Week 12 after the team's bye next week. Rhett Ellison is not a highly recommended TE1 fantasy option while filling in for Engram against the Jets.
UPDATE: Evan Engram says his foot injury is not a Lisfranc injury.
This is obviously great news, but it does not sound like Engram will suit up this Sunday against the Jets. We'll let you know how he's listed on the final Week 10 injury report, but the athletic tight end is expected to miss this week before then getting the Week 11 bye to rest and potentially returning in Week 12.
Evan Engram is dealing with a foot sprain.
Head coach Pat Shurmur told reporters the news, and the star tight end is currently in a walking boot. With the Giants at 2-7, it makes sense to let the injury completely heal, and an extended absence seems to be on the table. Rhett Ellison will be the next man up at tight end, but Engram missing time will mostly lead to increased targets for Golden Tate, Sterling Shepard (when he returns), and Saquon Barkley.
Evan Engram is getting a second opinion on his foot.
Giants head coach Pat Shurmur said yesterday that Engram was dealing with a sore foot, but it appears it might be worse than that. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Engram's MRI is being sent to specialist Dr. Robert Anderson for a second opinion. Hopefully this is precautionary, but the third-year tight end looks to be in jeopardy for Week 10 and potentially beyond. More information on Engram's foot should become available in the next day or so.
Evan Engram (knee) was officially a full participant in today's practice.
Despite reportedly dealing with an MCL sprain, Engram is set to return for the Giants after missing just one game on a short week last Thursday. We'll let you know if anything changes, but you should be able to insert Engram into your Week 7 fantasy lineup as a top-tier TE1. Engram is facing a Cardinals team that's been by far the worst in the NFL against opposing tight ends this season.
Evan Engram (knee) has been ruled out for tomorrow night.
Engram is reportedly dealing with a sprained MCL, and the Giants went ahead and ruled him out ahead of tomorrow's Week 6 game in Foxboro. Saquon Barkley (ankle), Sterling Shepard (concussion), and Wayne Gallman (concussion) were also ruled out, so rookie quarterback Daniels Jones is an extremely difficult spot in his fourth career start. Consider Engram week-to-week for now.
Evan Engram is dealing with a sprained MCL and is unlikely to play on Thursday night, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Engram will likely join Saquon Barkley (ankle) and Sterling Shepard (concussion) on the sideline in a short week, so New York is going to be extremely undermanned for a road trip to face the defending champion Patriots. Rhett Ellison would see more receiving work if Engram indeed misses the game, but the entire offense looks difficult to trust, and this is just another reason to keep Daniel Jones on the bench.
Evan Engram plays well in Giants’ Week 1 loss.
Engram caught 11 passes for 116 yards and a touchdown against the Cowboys, basically operating as a de facto No. 1 receiver for Eli Manning. The score was on a play-action pass at the goal line to open the scoring in the game, and the third-year tight end was reliable throughout the game. The former first-round pick clearly has the potential to ascend near the elite TE1 tier in 2019.
Evan Engram scores against the Cowboys.
Engram caught five passes for 81 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 17 loss, ending his season with lines of 3/77/0, 8/75/0, 6/87/0, and 5/81/1 in the final four weeks of the season, which could be a momentum-builder toward 2019. The second-year tight end's regular season ends with 45 receptions for 577 yards and three touchdowns in 11 games, but he battled injuries and some early-to-mid-season inconsistency in his first season in Pat Shurmur's offense. Engram is an obvious bounce-back candidate with strong TE1 potential next season.
Evan Engram totals 113 yards in loss to the Colts.
Engram caught six passes for 87 yards, also adding two carries for 13 yards. The 2017 first-round pick had seemed to fall out of favor with Pat Shurmur due to injuries, but he has re-emerged over the past three games, going for lines of 3/77, 8/75, and 6/87. The year hasn't been what Engram was hoping for, but he will look to continue his strong finish next week as a solid TE1 against Dallas.
Evan Engram caught eight passes for 75 yards in Sunday's loss to the Titans.
Engram led New York in all receiving categories, including a team-high 12 targets. The 2017 first-round pick has seemed to regain favor in the offense over the past couple weeks, so he will be back on the TE1 borderline for the fantasy championship as the Giants look to build momentum into 2019. Next up is a matchup against the Colts.
Evan Engram caught three passes for 77 yards in Sunday's win over the Redskins.
Engram came into the game with concerns about playing time, but he ended up leading the team in receiving. The 2017 first-round pick remains just a TE2 for Week 15 against the Titans, but his talent gives him more upside than others in the same range might have.
Evan Engram (hamstring) will play in Week 14.
Engram missed the last two games while dealing with the hamstring issue that popped up during pregame warmups in Week 12, but he'll play this Sunday against the Redskins. The second-year tight end is difficult to trust in lineups for the first week of the fantasy playoffs, as Rhett Ellison appears to be the top tight end for the Giants.
Evan Engram (hamstring) remains limited in practice.
Engram is probably headed for a questionable tag when the final Week 14 injury report is released tomorrow. He’s not really on the fantasy radar in standard-sized leagues, though.
Evan Engram (hamstring) was limited in today's practice.
This is a fine start to the week for Engram, but we'll track his status the next two days as he looks to get on the field to start the final quarter of the season.
Evan Engram (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 13.
Engram should be considered week-to-week after suffering a hamstring injury in pre-game warmups last week. Rhett Ellison will again be the top tight end for the Giants this Sunday, and Engram does not need to be owned in redraft leagues.
Evan Engram (hamstring) did not practice today.
After two straight missed practices, Engram isn't looking good for Sunday against the Bears. It's possible he's ruled out tomorrow.
Evan Engram (hamstring) officially did not practice today.
Engram is day-to-day as he deals with the hamstring tweak suffered in pre-game warmups on Sunday. We'll track his status the next two days, but the second-year tight end hasn't been a reliable fantasy option when healthy this season.
Evan Engram (hamstring) did not play in Week 12.
Engram injured his hamstring in pregame warmups, which the Giants announced after the game had started, and he did not appear against the Eagles. This obviously wasn't ideal for fantasy owners that used Ingram in their fantasy lineup this week, but hopefully the 2017 first-round pick is able to get back on the field next week against the Bears. Engram doesn't need to be owned in fantasy leagues right now, though, as Rhett Ellison has emerged as the top tight end for the Giants as of now.
Evan Engram (hamstring) is questionable to return against the Eagles.
The Giants just announced this now, but Engram injured the hamstring in pre-game warmups. Obviously, this isn't ideal for fantasy owners that inserted Engram into Week 12 fantasy lineups, but hopefully he's able to get in the game today.
Evan Engram catches both targets in Week 11.
Engram gained 66 yards on his two receptions, including a long reception of 54 yards that he nearly took the distance. This was Engram's highest receiving output since Week 2, and he'll look to keep it going against the Eagles next week. Philadelphia is a tough matchup for the second-year tight end, though.
Evan Engram caught four passes for 46 yards in Monday night's win over the 49ers.
Engram was quiet for most of the night, but he broke out with a 31-yard catch-and-run on the team's final offensive drive to get them going. The production hasn't really been there for the 2017 first-round pick so far this season, so we'll see if he can have a big day in Week 11's favorable matchup against the Buccaneers.
Evan Engram scores in Giants' loss.
Engram caught five passes for 25 yards and a touchdown, with the score coming late in the fourth quarter with the game basically in-hand for the Redskins. The second-year tight end now has a bye before facing the Niners in a couple of Mondays.
Evan Engram catches two passes in Week 7.
Engram gained 16 yards on his two receptions against the Falcons, also adding one carry for ten yards in the Monday night loss. This was Engram's first game after missing the last three contests with a knee injury. The second-year tight end had three receptions for 18 yards in his only meeting against the Redskins (his next opponent) last season.
Evan Engram (knee) is a full participant in practice.
After nearly going on a short week last week, Engram should be ready to go for Monday night against the Falcons. Engram missed the last three games with his sprained knee, and the Giants are hoping his likely return gives the offense a jolt. Assuming there are no setbacks in the next few days, the second-year tight end will be an immediate TE1 option in a potential shootout to end Week 7.
Evan Engram (knee) has been ruled out for Week 6.
There was optimism that Engram would be ready for tomorrow night's game against the Eagles, but he'll miss his third straight game. The good news is Engram seems close to a return and should be ready in Week 7 for a Monday night matchup with the Falcons. Rhett Ellison will again be the Giants' top tight end tomorrow night.
Evan Engram (knee) will be "full speed" at today's practice.
We'll let you know if anything changes, but it sounds like Engram will be a full participant in today's practice. Giants head coach Pat Shurmur remains optimistic about the second-year tight end's chances of playing on Thursday night against the Eagles, and he's leaning towards the probable side of things as of now. We'll see how Engram is listed on the official injury report for the game when it's released tomorrow.
Giants head coach Pat Shurmur says Evan Engram (knee) “has a shot” this week.
The Giants play on Thursday night against the Eagles, but the second-year tight end might be able to give it a go. We’ll monitor Engram’s status the next few days leading up to Thursday night. Even if Engram is out this week, his status looks good moving forward.
Evan Engram is expected to miss two-to-four weeks with his MCL sprain.
This is according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, who says "it sounds like a moderate sprain" for the second-year tight end. Engram should be held on fantasy rosters as a TE1 option when he returns in a few weeks. Rhett Ellison will fill in as the Giants' starter while Engram is out, and he'll have some streaming appeal in good matchups.
Evan Engram is dealing with a sprained MCL and is week to week, according to Adam Schefter.
Engram left Sunday's game with a knee injury, and it sounds like it's leading to a multi-week absence for the second-year tight end. Engram got going in Week 2 against the Cowboys with a 7/67/1 line, but fantasy owners will need to look elsewhere for a TE1, and Sterling Shepard could be asked to handle more targets for the Giants. If he is available, David Njoku would be a good pickup now that Baker Mayfield is under center for Cleveland, but Engram should still be rostered, particularly if you have an IR spot to stash him on.
Evan Engram (knee) has been ruled out for the rest of today's game.
Engram took a hit to the knee and went to be evaluated at the medical tent, so it's obviously not a great sign that he's already been ruled out. We should get more information about Engram later tonight or tomorrow. Before leaving, Engram had one reception for 19 yards against the Texans. Rhett Ellison will take on a larger role with Engram out.
Evan Engram leaves game with apparent lower leg injury.
Engram took a hit to the knee area and limped off, and now he's headed inside the blue medical tent on the sideline. Hopefully the injury isn't too serious, but we'll update you as more information becomes available.
Evan Engram scores in Week 2 loss.
Engram caught all seven of his targets against Dallas, and it was good to see him show reliable hands. Most of his damage came late in the game, including an 18-yard score in which he ran right behind the defense and was wide-open in the end zone. Overall, Engram caught seven passes for 67 yards and a touchdown. He’ll be a TE1 option in Week 3 against the Texans.
Evan Engram catches two passes against the Jaguars.
Engram gained 18 yards on his two receptions (five targets). Unfortunately, Engram's struggle with drops has continued to open his second NFL season, so he needs to get more consistent there. Engram did have an outstanding leaping catch deep down the field that was wiped out by an offensive penalty. He gets the Cowboys in Week 2.
Evan Engram is out of concussion protocol.
It took some time to get fully cleared, but the second-year tight end is ready to go against the Jaguars. Engram is a TE1 option, and he should get at least a handful of looks with Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard having to contend with Jacksonville's top-notch corners on the outside.
Evan Engram (concussion) has been ruled out for the rest of tonight's preseason game.
The Giants quickly ruled their starting tight end out with a concussion, so now he'll enter the concussion protocol. Engram has plenty of time to get cleared before the season opener, but it's no lock given the nature of concussions. It's just something to keep in mind if your fantasy draft is coming up, but he's likely to get cleared for Week 1.
Evan Engram leaves Giants preseason game.
Engram was sandwiched by a couple of Jets defenders and was down for a couple of minutes before heading to the locker room. The second-year tight end could be headed to concussion protocol, but his night is likely over either way. If Engram is in concussion protocol, he'll have a little over three weeks to get cleared for the opener. Hopefully he's feeling better soon.
Evan Engram (ribs) has been ruled out for Week 17.
Engram didn't practice all week, and this was expected. The first-round selection from Ole Miss' first season in the NFL was an excellent one, as rookie tight ends typically don't have a ton of success. Engram played in 15 games, catching 64 passes for 722 receiving yards and six touchdowns. He did have some games where he couldn't get much going and struggled with drops, but Engram also had some big performances and flashed the athletic ability that made the Giants want to take him so high in the draft. Engram will be a high-upside TE1 in 2018 fantasy drafts.
Evan Engram (ribs) remains out of practice.
The rookie tight end is unlikely to play this week to end the season, as the Giants are way out of playoff contention and aren't going to have Engram suffer a more serious injury by playing through his rib issue. He might be ruled out tomorrow.
Evan Engram (ribs) did not practice today.
The rookie tight end is not expected to play in Week 17 against the Redskins, but maybe he'll tough it out and play in the season finale. We'll update you with Engram's practice status throughout the week.
Evan Engram (ribs) is out for the rest of today's game against the Cardinals.
The rookie tight end was hurt on a Giants interception, and it's bad enough that he's been ruled out for the game. It's possible Engram is dealing with broken ribs, but hopefully it's not any worse than that. Engram had one reception for 12 yards before leaving, and we'll see if he's able to get back for the season finale in Week 17.
Evan Engram totals over 100 yards in Week 15.
Engram had a very good game against the Eagles, as he was a reliable target for Eli Manning and made a couple really nice catches in the game. The rookie tight end caught eight of 13 targets for 87 yards while also adding a 14-yard carry versus Philadelphia. While the Giants probably won't be as pass heavy next week against Arizona, Engram is still a fine TE1 option.
Evan Engram leads the Giants in Week 14 receiving.
Engram was targeted seven times against the Cowboys, catching four receptions for 54 yards in the loss. The rookie tight end should remain Eli Maning's top target next week against the Eagles, but he does have some downside against them. Engram had 45 yards in their first matchup back in Week 3.
Evan Engram scores in Week 13.
Engram had been struggling over the last two games, but he really got going in this one against an Oakland team that's vulnerable against tight ends. The rookie had seven receptions (on eight targets) for 99 yards and a touchdown, with the score coming toward the back of the end zone on a dime from Geno Smith. It might be tough for Engram next week if Cowboys safety Byron Jones is matched up on him in man coverage, but he's still a TE1 option.
Evan Engram struggles against the Redskins.
Coming off his worst game of the season last week against the Chiefs, the rookie tight end followed up tonight with what was probably a worse game. Engram was targeted seven times in the Thanksgiving matchup, catching three passes for 18 yards while dropping three passes in the game. While he's had some awesome games this season, rookie tight ends typically go through struggles, so this isn't a huge surprise. Still, consider Engram to be a TE1 in Week 13 versus Oakland.
Chiefs shut down Evan Engram.
Kansas City appeared to have a gameplan of stopping Eli Manning's primary target, as Engram caught only one pass (on six targets) for nine yards in Week 11. The rookie tight end did have a drop, but it probably wouldn't have gone for many yards. Engram is a good bet to bounce back in Week 12 against the Redskins.
Evan Engram scores in fourth-straight game as Giants fall to 49ers.
Engram caught six passes for 31 yards, including a nine-yard touchdown. The rookie tight end has been one of the very, very few bright spots for New York this season, and he will be a midrange TE1 against Kansas City in Week 11.
Evan Engram scores again in blowout loss.
Engram caught four passes for 70 yards and a touchdown, a 10-yard reception with the Giants down 48-10 in the fourth quarter. The rookie had now scored in three-straight games, and he's on pace for an impressive 68/824/8 line through eight games. He's probably the only New York player to start against the 49ers in Week 10.
Evan Engram scores for second straight week.
The de facto number one receiver for the Giants caught six of 12 targets for 60 yards and a touchdown versus Seattle, with the touchdown coming on a route across the end zone where he made a nice lunging catch. The Giants have a bye next week, but Engram will be a TE1 when the team returns in Week 9. There is concern about defenses taking him away, but Engram should remain in lineups as long as he's putting up numbers.
Evan Engram scores against the Broncos.
Engram bounced back form his no-catch game last week versus the Chargers, as he caught five of seven targets for 82 yards and a touchdown in a win over Denver. The rookie tight end worked as the de facto number one receiver in this game, and he might continue as such moving forward. Engram is getting a very large share of the targets and is a TE1 against Seattle in Week 7.
Evan Engram gets shutout in Week 5.
The rookie tight end was targeted four times against the Chargers, but he didn't have any catches in the game. With the injuries to the receivers for the Giants, Engram could be fed a lot of targets moving forward. His next opponent, the Broncos, haven't been good against opposing tight ends this season.
Evan Engram gets 11 targets in Week 4.
Eli Manning and the Giants are utilizing their rookie tight end, as he caught six passes for 62 yards against the Bucs. Through four games, Engram is on pace for 76 receptions, 800 yards, and four touchdowns, which would be excellent numbers for a rookie tight end. He faces the Chargers in Week 5.
Evan Engram gets seven targets in Week 3.
Engram caught five passes for 45 yards against the Eagles, which was a decent game in a tough matchup against Philadelphia. The rookie tight end should offer a pretty good floor next week against Tampa Bay.
Giants TE Evan Engram will play Sunday against the Eagles.
Engram cleared the final stage of concussion protocol and is no longer on the injury report, so he's ready to go in a big game against Philadelphia. The Eagles are tough against tight ends, so that paired with the struggling offensive line of the Giants means there are probably better options out there for you fantasy lineup.
Evan Engram scores first-career touchdown in Week 2.
The first-round rookie tight end from Ole Miss caught four of a team-high seven targets against the Lions and gained 49 yards. Engram's touchdown came on a play where he was lined up in the backfield and acted like he was a lead blocker before running right by the defense and catching a wide-open 18-yard touchdown. Engram's potential as a receiving weapon at tight end is obvious, and he'll look to keep it going next week against the Eagles—though it is a difficult matchup on paper.
Evan Engram caught four passes for 44 yards in his NFL debut.
Considering the overall struggles of the Giants offense in a 19-3 loss to the Cowboys, it wasn't a bad showing. Engram might actually be better once Odell Beckham Jr. returns to hopefully open things up for him. The Giants have a lot of things to figure out offensively heading into Monday night's matchup with Detroit.
Evan Engram catches two passes for 32 yards in Giants' third preseason game.
The first-round rookie tight end from Ole Miss was targeted three times in the exhibition versus the Jets. Because rookie tight ends typically don't have much success in their first season in the NFL, Engram is going undrafted in most fantasy leagues. He could end up being an outlier and deliver solid fantasy value in 2017, though.
Evan Engram catches 21-yard pass in second preseason game.
Engram had three receptions for 32 yards total in the game for the Giants. He's clearly going to be the lead receiving tight end for the Giants this season, and he could definitely have some fantasy value in a potentially very good offense.
Rookie Evan Engram catches one pass in first NFL preseason game.
Engram's reception was for 11 yards. The rookie looks primed for the starting role for the Giants, and he's a solid selection late in fantasy drafts as someone with good red zone potential for Eli Manning.
Giants add a tight end; select Ole Miss tight end Evan Engram with the 23rd pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.
Eli will get a fellow alumni as a solid target at tight end. Engram had 65 catches for 926 yards and eight touchdowns in 2016 with Mississippi. He's basically a receiver that splits out and will cause headaches for opposing defenses. The Giants offense has a ton of weapons. Engram will likely be fourth for targets, but he is likely to start at tight end as a rookie. He'll offer some upside in 2017 fantasy drafts, but there's a chance he doesn't put up much in terms of numbers as a rookie.
