The Newark Star-Ledger's Zack Rosenblatt believes Giants WR Sterling Shepard (toe) is "unlikely" to play against Washington on Sunday. He's eligible to come off IR this week, but a Week 7 return looks more likely. Darius Slayton, Golden Tate and Evan Engram will continue to operate as the top 3 options in the Giants' passing game.
The Giants have placed WR Sterling Shepard on IR. So he'll miss at least the next 3 games with his turf toe. That's an injury that tends to linger, so we'll see exactly when Shepard is able to get back on the field. His absence will mean more targets for WR Darius Slayton, WR Golden Tate and TE Evan Engram.
Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) avoided the PUP list to open training camp. He spent the offseason rehabbing from December Lisfranc surgery but was running and cutting by the end of June. Durability has been a major problem for Engram, who's missed 14 games over 3 NFL seasons. But he's also consistently produced as a top 7 fantasy TE when he's been on the field. He's a risk/reward pick at his 7th-round ADP.
The Giants will hire Joe Judge as their next HC, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's an out-of-nowhere move. Judge spent the past 8 seasons in New England -- the first 7 as a special teams coach and 2019 as the WRs coach. Prior to that, he worked under Nick Saban at Alabama. At just 38 years old, he's now the league's 2nd-youngest HC. Frankly, that's about all we know about Judge at this point. We'll see who he tabs as his OC.
The Giants will fire HC Pat Shurmur, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Shurmur compiled a 9-23 record in 2 seasons at the helm in New York. We'll see who the G-Men tab as their next HC. They have an excellent core on offense with QB Daniel Jones, RB Saquon Barkley, WRs Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate and Darius Slayton and TE Evan Engram.
Giants TE Evan Engram will undergo surgery on Friday to stabilize a tendon in his foot, he said. Engram added that he'll be "more than ready" for training camp. We'll monitor his rehab this offseason.
The Giants have placed TE Evan Engram (foot) on IR, ending his 2019 campaign. He's averaged an impressive 4.5 catches and 52 yards per game over his first 3 NFL seasons but has now missed 14 of a possible 48 games. Engram will be a risk/reward pick in 2020 fantasy football drafts. Rookie Kaden Smith will close out this season as New York's lead TE.
Giants TEs Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) are out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. That again leaves lead TE duties to Kaden Smith, who's averaged 6.3 targets over the past 3 weeks. He's a low-end spot-start option.
Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) isn't expected to play against the Dolphins this weekend, according to insider Art Stapleton. "Sprained foot is just not coming along fast enough to return yet. Zero sense to rush + risk further injury," Stapleton tweeted. We'll see if TE Rhett Ellison (concussion) makes it back for Sunday's game. If not, Kaden Smith will again serve as New York's lead TE.
Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) remained limited in Wednesday's practice. He put in 2 limited practices last week before missing Monday night's game against the Eagles. His status for Sunday's game against the Dolphins is up in the air.
Giants TEs Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) are out for Monday night's game against the Eagles. That means another game as lead TE for Kaden Smith, who's totaled 14 targets, 11 catches, 87 yards and a score over the last 2 weeks.
Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) put in a limited practice on Thursday. It's his 1st practice of any kind since going down back in Week 9. Engram expects to play against the Eagles on Monday night, but we'd feel better about getting him back in fantasy lineups if he gets in a full practice on Friday and/or Saturday.
Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) told reporters that he expects to return for Monday night's game against the Eagles. We'll track his practice participation over the next few days. The foot issue will add some risk to Engram's Week 14 fantasy outlook, but note that he racked up 22 targets, 17 catches and 164 yards in 2 games with QB Eli Manning to open the season.
Giants TEs Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) are out for Sunday's game against the Packers. That again leaves Kaden Smith as New York's lead TE. In that role last week, he ran a pass route on 100% of QB Daniel Jones' drop backs, garnered a 17% target share and posted a 5-17-1 line. Smith is a viable Week 13 spot starter if you're hurting at TE.
Giants TEs Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) remained sidelined on Wednesday. With both guys out last week, TE Kaden Smith ran a pass route on 100% of QB Daniel Jones' drop backs and garnered a 17% target share. He'll be a deep-league flier for Week 13 if Engram and Ellison are out again.
