WR Christian Kirk led the Jaguars with 9 targets in a sloppy loss to the Eagles on Sunday, but he managed only 2 catches (for 60 yards). WR Jamal Agnew stepped in to catch 4 balls for 50 yards (among 6 targets) and score the team's only 2 offensive TDs. JaMycal Hasty was the only other Jaguar to draw more than 1 target on a sloppy offensive day in rainy Philly. TE Evan Engram and WR Marvin Jones each drew just 1 target apiece.

Jaguars WR Zay Jones (ankle) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Eagles. That leaves WRs Jamal Agnew, Tim Jones and Kendric Pryor behind Christian Kirk and Marvin Jones. Kirk, Marvin Jones, TE Evan Engram and RB Travis Etienne could pick up extra volume with Zay Jones out.

Jaguars WR Christian Kirk had an efficient Sunday, catching all 6 of his targets for 78 yards and a pair of TDs in the 24-0 win over the Colts. Kirk trailed TE Evan Engram by 2 targets but earned a solid 20% share of QB Trevor Lawrence's total attempts. The QB went 25-of-30 passing for 235 yards and the 2 scores to Kirk. Engram hauled in 7 of his 8 looks for 46 yards. Marvin Jones and Zay Jones again tracked close with Kirk in routes, while Engram increased his rate vs. Week 1 to join them. We'd bet on this quartet seeing a lot of the field together, with Kirk the most common target leader. The Joneses caught 3 passes apiece against Indy, with Marvin garnering 5 targets and Bay 4.

Jags TE Evan Engram posted only 28 yards on 4 grabs in Sunday’s loss at Washington. Encouragingly, he ran a route on 78% of Trevor Lawrence’s dropbacks. But the veteran TE mustered only 4 targets — a 9.5% share. Ultimately, it’s far too early to make any sweeping conclusions about this offense after just 1 game under HC Doug Pederson. Next up is a matchup with a Colts defense that just allowed a pair of scores to Texans TE O.J. Howard.

ESPN's Michael DiRocco calls TE Evan Engram "one of the focal points" of the Jaguars' offense. We heard the same from insider Hays Carlyon on the Draft Sharks podcast in early August. Engram remains 1 of the best TE values in fantasy drafts.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that TE Evan Engram "intends" to sign a 1-year, $9 million deal with the Jaguars. The money is reportedly guaranteed, with a chance to grow to $10 million via incentives. We'll see exactly how the receiving pieces fit in new HC Doug Pederson's offense. Engram brings a similar skill set to Jacksonville incumbent TE Dan Arnold, who played WR in college and was operating as a top target after arriving from Carolina in trade (before getting injured). Engram, a former 1st-round pick, should still beat Arnold on the talent front, though. The 2 of them plus free-agent addition Christian Kirk and Laviska Shenault sure seem to give Jacksonville a lot of slot-type pieces. We'll likely keep learning through training camp and the preseason just how to project this offense. The addition of passing-game pieces can only help QB Trevor Lawrence, though.

Giants QB Daniel Jones strained his neck early in last week's game vs. the Eagles, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Jones played the rest of that one but is now considered "week to week" and is expected to miss at least 1 game, Pelissero adds. That sets QB Mike Glennon up to start Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins. The 31-year-old went 16 of 25 for 196 yards, 1 TD and 2 INTs in relief of Jones back in Week 5 vs. Dallas. He made 5 starts for the Jaguars last year, mustering just 6.0 yards per attempt with 7 TDs and 5 INTs. Glennon is a bottom-barrel QB2 and likely to be a downgrade for New York's offense.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (quad) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Eagles. WR Kadarius Toney (quad) is listed as doubtful. TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) is also doubtful, while WR John Ross (quad) is questionable. Kenny Golladay and Darius Slayton will operate as New York's top 2 WRs this weekend. TE Evan Engram should at least theoretically play a big role in the passing game.

The Giants fired OC Jason Garrett. His squad ranked 31st in both total yards and points in 2020. This year's Giants currently sit 23rd in yards and 25th in points. Garrett was strapped with an uneven QB, a bad offensive line and lots of skill-position injuries -- but his offense never showed the slightest hint of creativity. Freddie Kitchens is expected to take over as interim OC, according to The New York Post's Ryan Dunleavy. Kitchens struggled as Browns HC in 2019 but did spark the offense after taking over as OC midway through the 2018 campaign. We don't expect a big rebound from the Giants the rest of the way, but Kitchens can only be an upgrade over Garrett.

Giants TE Evan Engram (calf) is active for today’s game against the Panthers. He was added to the injury report and sidelined on Thursday before returning to a limited practice on Friday. Engram is a high-risk Week 7 fantasy play.

Giants TE Evan Engram (calf) is expected to play vs. the Panthers today, barring a setback in pregame warmups, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Engram seemingly aggravated his calf injury in Thursday's practice and then was limited on Friday. He's a risky Week 7 fantasy play.

Giants TE Evan Engram (calf) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Panthers. He was added to the injury report and sidelined on Thursday before returning to a limited practice on Friday. Engram will be a high-risk fantasy play if he ends up active on Sunday.

Giants TE Evan Engram did not practice on Thursday due to a calf injury. He missed the first 2 games of the season with a calf, although it's not confirmed that this is related. Regardless, he now looks iffy for this weekend's game vs. the Panthers. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Giants QB Daniel Jones (concussion) will be a full participant in Friday's practice and "appears" on track to start Sunday's game vs. the Rams, HC Joe Judge said Friday morning. Jones still needs to be cleared by an independent neurologist in order to play this weekend, but it sounds like that's expected to happen. Jones is a borderline QB1 for Week 6 and an upgrade over QB Mike Glennon for all of New York's skill-position players.

Giants WRs Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton are out for Sunday's game vs. the Saints with their hamstring injuries. Kenny Golladay should operate as New York's clear #1 WR. We're expecting to see Kadarius Toney replace Shepard in the slot and Collin Johnson and C.J. Board to team up to replace Slayton. RB Saquon Barkley and TE Evan Engram should also play significant roles in the Giants' passing game.

Giants TE Evan Engram (calf) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. He remained limited in practice all week and is a risky fantasy play until we know that he’s back to 100%.

The Giants are “optimistic” WR Kenny Golladay and TE Evan Engram will play Sunday against the Falcons, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler. Both players are questionable, so we’ll confirm their statuses Sunday morning. Each will still carry risk in your fantasy football lineup, but the matchup also presents significant upside. Check out latest Week 3 rankings before finalizing your lineups.

Giants TE Evan Engram (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Falcons. He was limited in practice all week. We’re expecting Engram to make his 2021 debut in this one -- but make him prove that he’s healthy before trusting him in fantasy lineups.

Giants TE Evan Engram (calf) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. He has a chance to make his 2021 debut vs. the Falcons this weekend. Engram should eventually re-emerge as a fantasy factor, but we'd try to keep him on benches until we know that he's back to 100%.

Giants TE Evan Engram was participating in team drills Monday, according to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post. We won't get an official injury report until Wednesday, but the Giants got an early start coming off their Thursday night loss to Washington. We'll watch Engram's progress throughout the week, but it seems as though he's trending toward playing against the Falcons on Sunday.
