Giants TE Evan Engram (concussion) was limited in practice all week and is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Eagles. HC Ben McAdoo confirmed on Friday that Engram remains in the concussion protocol. Giants-Eagles kicks off at 1 pm ET on Sunday, so we’ll know Engram’s status by noon. He’ll be a low-end fantasy option if active.

Giants TE Evan Engram was limited in Wednesday's practice with a concussion. (Because we needed more injury problems at TE.) ESPN's Jordan Raanan says Engram was placed in the protocol as a "precaution." And the fact that he was able to get in a limited workout gives him a good chance to be cleared in time for Sunday's game against the Eagles. We'll continue to monitor his status.

Giants WR Odell Beckham (ankle) is officially inactive for tonight’s game against the Cowboys. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport hears that Beckham “should be good to go for Week 2.” Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard will serve as New York’s top 2 WRs tonight. TE Evan Engram could also play a bigger role in the passing game.

Evan Engram led Giants TE with 23 snaps in the 1st half of Saturday's preseason game -- the majority of those coming with QB Eli Manning. Engram hauled in 2 balls for 32 yards. The usage is much more important, though. The rookie looks poised to enter the season with a real role in the passing game. He's still nothing more than a late-round flier in fantasy drafts but could emerge as a spot-start option.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard was carted off the field during Wednesday's practice. Trainers were reportedly working on his right leg. "He's in serious pain ... Apparently in tears. Not good," ESPN's Jordan Raanan tweeted. We should learn more soon, but this obviously has the look of a serious injury. Shepard's absence would likely mean target boosts for WR Brandon Marshall and TE Evan Engram. Stay tuned.

Two Giants writers for NJ.com project TE Will Tye to get cut this summer. Both project Evan Engram, Rhett Ellison, Matt LaCosse and Jerell Adams to constitute the team's TE group -- with Adams beating out Tye for the final spot. It's notable only because Tye's 70 targets ranked 4th on the team last season. His ouster would leave opportunities available for Engram and others. We're not betting on the 1st-round pick turning into an immediate fantasy starter. But the departure of last year's starter would enhance the weekly upside.

Giants VP of player personnel Marc Ross confirmed what we all pretty much knew: The team drafted TE Evan Engram to catch passes. “Yeah, he’s not gonna line up on the line and just be trying to dive block people all the time," Ross said. "He’s gonna be in the backfield, he’s gonna be in the slot, he’s gonna be detached, he will be down in tradition tight end position sometimes too, but the way Ole Miss used him… He can line up in three or four positions, so I would envision we will use him in a similar fashion.” Engram didn't do much blocking in college and struggled when he did. But he caught 162 passes over 4 seasons, including 65 last year. Then he registered a 93rd percentile SPARQ score at the Combine. Engram might find targets tough to come by this season in a Giants offense with 3 strong WRs. But long term, this guy has as much fantasy upside as any TE in the 2017 class.

The Giants selected Ole Miss TE Evan Engram with the 23rd pick of the 2017 NFL Draft. He’s surprisingly the 2nd TE off the board, ahead of Miami’s David Njoku. Engram is closer to a big WR than a traditional TE. He won’t contribute much as a blocker (at least immediately) but should be a weapon in the passing game. His 65 catches, 926 yards and 8 TDs last year all ranked 1st or 2nd among all FBS TEs. Engram is undersized for an NFL TE at 6’3 and 234 pounds, but he tested as a 93rd percentile athlete. He could develop into a Jordan Reed type — or even move to WR and operate as a big slot guy like Marques Colston. In the short term, though, Engram has a ton of target competition in Odell Beckham, Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard. He won’t be more than a late-round flier in redraft leagues.
