Evan Engram Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

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.

The Giants have ruled TE Evan Engram out for Thursday night's game against Washington because of the calf injury he suffered in the final preseason game. The team reportedly entered the week hopeful he'd be ready. We'll see about Engram's participation level heading into Week 3. His absence will again leave Kyle Rudolph as New York's top TE.

Giants TE Evan Engram (calf) remained sidelined for Tuesday's practice. We've heard some optimism about Engram's status for Thursday night's tilt with Washington, but fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him in Week 2 lineups.

Giants TE Evan Engram (calf) is out for Sunday's opener against the Broncos. He didn't practice all week, so don't expect him back for next Thursday night's game at Washington. TE Kyle Rudolph (foot) was limited in practice all week but isn't listed on the final injury report. So he'll play vs. Denver, but it's unclear how big a role he'll be ready for after missing most of the offseason after foot surgery. Avoid the situation in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

Giants TE Evan Engram (calf) did not practice on Wednesday. He's not expected to play in this weekend's opener vs. the Broncos. TEs Kyle Rudolph (foot) and Kaden Smith (knee) were both limited on Wednesday.

Giants TE Evan Engram is a "long shot" to play against the Broncos on Sunday, a source tells NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Engram has reportedly made progress and avoided short-term IR, so a Week 2 return might be in the cards. But he shouldn't be in your Week 1 fantasy plans. Engram's absence would leave the Giants with TEs Kyle Rudolph and Kaden Smith.

Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports that the Giants plan to "evaluate" TE Evan Engram "for a few days before making a decision" on whether to place him on IR. Engram hurt his left calf in the preseason finale. Sending him to IR would keep the TE out for a minimum of 3 games. So it sounds like the team is trying to decipher whether he can comfortably get back onto the field sooner than that. We'll keep an eye on the situation. Engram has dipped in our TE rankings, but there remains PPR upside whenever he's all the way back.

Giants HC Joe Judge said Tuesday that TE Evan Engram's status for Week 1 is uncertain. We still don't have any details on Engram's calf injury, and Judge said there's “gray area” with the situation. It at least sounds like Engram avoided a serious injury. But it's never good when a guy who's struggled with injuries is hurt before the season even begins.

Giants TE Evan Engram left Sunday's preseason finale against the Patriots with a left calf injury. It was a non-contact injury, and the team ruled him out for the game. That's not a good sign. We'll see about the official diagnosis. Pass on drafting Engram if your league drafts tonight. Kyle Rudolph would be worth later consideration if Engram is set to miss significant time.

Update: HC Joe Judge said after the game there is "optimism" that the injury is minor, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Engram will undergo testing Monday to determine the extent of the damage, so we should know more by Monday night.

Giants TE Kyle Rudolph is opening training camp on the active/PUP list. That's not surprising, given that the veteran TE had foot surgery shortly after signing with the team. He can be activated at any point during camp. If Rudolph remains on the list until the final roster cutdown, he'd be eligible for the regular-season PUP. That would require him to miss 6 games. We'll keep an eye on Rudolph's status, mostly for the sake of Evan Engram's snap/target competition.
