Evan Engram Fantasy Football News 2019

Giants WR Odell Beckham (quad) is out for Week 17. WR Sterling Shepard and TE Evan Engram will again serve as QB Eli Manning’s top 2 targets against a Cowboys team that figures to rest some defensive starters.

Giants WR Odell Beckham (quad) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. He's unlikely to play in this weekend's finale against the Cowboys, again leaving WR Sterling Shepard and TE Evan Engram as QB Eli Manning's top 2 targets.

The Giants have ruled WR Odell Beckham out for Sunday's game at Indianapolis. That will once again leave Sterling Shepard as the de facto lead wideout. Shepard absorbed 9 targets in that role last week but caught just 2 balls for the 2nd straight game. Beckham's absence helps the volume outlook but doesn't turn Shepard into a strong option. TE Evan Engram, on the other hand, has topped 70 receiving yards in each of the 2 games Beckham has missed -- including last week's 12-target, 8-catch outing. He gets a better matchup than his WR teammates against a Colts D that ranks 7th worst vs. TEs in our adjusted fantasy points allowed.

The New York Post's Paul Schwartz considers Giants WR Odell Beckham (quad) "likely" to miss the final 2 games of the season. Beckham's quad contusion is "showing little or no improvement." And the Giants, of course, have no reason to push him back out there. TE Evan Engram has been the biggest beneficiary of Beckham's absence over the past 2 weeks, totaling 17 targets, 11 catches and 152 yards.

The Giants have ruled WR Odell Beckham out for Sunday’s game at Washington. Beckham shows up on the Friday injury report as a limited participant after sustaining a quad bruise. The team today determined that he won’t be able to play. That obviously raises the target ceilings for WR Sterling Shepard and TE Evan Engram, while also lowering the fantasy floor for QB Eli Manning. Fortunately, he didn’t look attractive for lineups anyway. The loss of 1 of the Giants’ 2 best players also raises the floor for the Washington defense, which is a decent streaming option.

Giants TE Evan Engram (hamstring) is not listed on the final Week 14 injury report. He put in full practices on both Thursday and Friday. Engram is sitting just 19th among TEs in PPR points per game and returns as a low-end TE1 option.

Giants TE Evan Engram (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. That gives him a shot to play against the Redskins this weekend, but we'll continue to track his status over the next few days. Engram will be a low-end TE1 if he suits up on Sunday.

Giants TE Evan Engram (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Bears. He didn't practice all week and isn't a lock to return for Week 14. Rhett Ellison will serve as New York's lead TE this weekend but would be a desperation fantasy play.

Giants TE Evan Engram (hamstring) will miss his 2nd straight practice on Thursday, HC Pat Shurmur said. He's a long shot to play against the Bears this weekend. That'll leave Rhett Ellison as New York's lead TE, but he'd be a desperation fantasy play.

Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll return for what should be a high-scoring affair against the Falcons on Monday night. Engram sits inside TE1 territory in the Week 7 Rankings.

Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. He was seemingly close to playing last week and is now on track to return for Monday night's game against the Falcons. A healthy Engram remains an easy TE1.

Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) has been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Eagles. He returned to practice this week, putting him on track to return for Week 7. Rhett Ellison gets another game as New York's lead TE but would be a desperation fantasy play.

Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) put in a limited practice on Tuesday. It looks like he has a shot to return for Thursday night's game against the Eagles. We should have a better idea of his status after tomorrow's practice.

Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) "has a shot" to play against the Eagles on Thursday night, HC Pat Shurmur said Monday. Engram will be 2-and-a-half weeks removed at that point from an injury that was expected to sideline him 2-4 weeks. We'll keep an eye on his practice participation over the next couple of days.

Giants TE Evan Engram is expected to miss 2-4 weeks with his sprained MCL, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. New York's bye doesn't come until Week 9, and it sounds like Engram will be back before that. Odell Beckham, Sterling Shepard and Saquon Barkley figure to dominate targets while Engram is out.

Giants TE Evan Engram has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL and is considered "week to week," according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. We'll look for a more concrete timetable, but Engram owners obviously need to be lining up a replacement. Giants backup TE Rhett Ellison isn't a viable fantasy option. Engram's absence should push more targets to Odell Beckham, Sterling Shepard and Saquon Barkley.

Giants TE Evan Engram injured his knee in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Texans and is officially questionable to return. We'll pass along another update when we get one.

UPDATE: Engram has been ruled out.

Giants TE Evan Engram (ankle) is not listed on the final injury report. He was limited on Wednesday and Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday. Engram is locked in as a solid TE1 play against a Texans defense that Football Outsiders ranks 30th in TE coverage.

Giants TE Evan Engram has cleared the concussion protocol, HC Pat Shurmur said Wednesday. So Engram is good to go for this weekend's opener against the Jaguars. As good as Jacksonville's defense was last season, they finished just 20th in Football Outsiders' TE coverage rankings.

Giants TE Evan Engram (concussion) is expected to be ready for the team's opener next weekend, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan. Engram will be 16 days removed from his head injury when the G-Men kick off against the Jaguars. We'll have more updates on his progress this coming week.
