Jaguars TE Evan Engram (back) put in a full practice on Friday and isn’t listed on the final injury report. So the back issue that limited his last week shouldn’t be a problem on Sunday in Kansas City. Consider Engram a lower-end TE1 vs. the Chiefs’ 28th-ranked TE defense.

Jaguars TE Evan Engram (back) remained limited in Thursday's practice. He'll need to put in a full practice on Friday to be a comfortable fantasy play vs. the Chiefs this weekend.

Jaguars TE Evan Engram (back) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He missed some time in the 2nd half of last week's win over the Raiders, but it looks like he'll at least be available for Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs. What Engram does over the next couple of days will determine how safe a Week 10 fantasy play he is.

Jaguars TE Evan Engram hurt his back in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's win over the Raiders. He returned to the game but saw his snaps limited. Engram played easily his smallest share of the season, with TEs Chris Manhertz (primarily a blocker) and Dan Arnold both playing more than usual. Engram's status will be worth tracking leading up to next Sunday's visit to Kansas City.

Jaguars WR Christian Kirk led the team in targets (9), receptions (8) and receiving yards (76) in Sunday's win over the Raiders. He also snagged the team's lone TD pass. It marked the 1st time since Week 4 that he led the team in targets by himself. WR Marvin Jones followed with 6 targets. He and Zay Jones tied with 5 receptions apiece, though each fell short of 50 yards. TE Evan Engram tallied just 1 catch for 8 yards among 2 targets. Jacksonville visits the Chiefs in Week 10.

Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence threw for just 133 yards in Sunday morning's loss to the Broncos, with 1 TD and a pair of INTs. Lawrence threw right into the grip of S Justin Simmons at the goal line in the 2nd quarter, and then tossed the clinching pick to CB K'Waun Williams late. TE Evan Engram led the Jags in receptions (4) and receiving yards (55), and snagged the TD pass. WR Christian Kirk led with 7 targets but managed just 3 catches for 40 yards. Jacksonville gets a favorable draw against the Raiders in Week 9.

Jaguars WRs Christian Kirk and Zay Jones tied for the team target lead with 10 apiece in Sunday's loss to the Giants. Kirk grabbed a team-high 7 catches for a team-high 96 yards. Jones caught 4 balls, tying TE Evan Engram and WR Marvin Jones Jr. for 2nd. No other Jaguar caught more than 1 pass in the game.

Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence endured a 2nd straight rough outing in Sunday's loss to the Texans. He completed just 53.2% of his passes and threw 2 INTs, with no TDs. That marks 2 straight games with multiple turnovers after a much stronger start to the year. Lawrence sent 11 targets to WR Marvin Jones, 10 to TE Evan Engram and 8 to WR Zay Jones, who returned after missing Week 4 with an ankle sprain. WR Christian Kirk drew just 3 looks but led Jacksonville pass-catchers in snaps and routes. The Jaguars get a Week 6 rematch with the Colts, who they beat 24-0 in Week 2. Then comes a home date with the Giants.

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.
