Bottom Line

Engram had a resurgence last season due to strong volume. He’s still a great route runner with solid hands who became the de facto top target for the team.

The additions of Gabriel Davis and Brian Thomas Jr. figure to mean at least a slight dip in targets this season.

But Engram still looks like a reliable week-to-week TE1.

What We Learned Last Year

  • Engram’s per-game receiving statistics in 2023 were among the best of his career:
    • 8.41 targets
    • 6.71 receptions
    • 56.6 yards
    • 8.4 yards per catch
    • 0.24 TDs per game
  • Engram ranked as the PPR TE2 in total fantasy points and TE4 in points per game.
  • He missed no games due to injury. He hasn’t missed a game across two seasons with the Jaguars.
  • Engram had six top-12 finishes. He only had two TE25 or worse finishes.
  • His target share of 23.2% ranked second among TEs.
  • Among 33 TEs with 40+ targets, Engram ranked:
    • 9th in Pro Football Focus receiving grade
    • 31st in average target depth (5.0 yards)
    • 1st in slot targets (85)

What to Expect in 2024

  • Engram will enter his third season with the Jaguars under HC Doug Pederson and OC Press Taylor.
  • The Jags lost WR Calvin Ridley in free agency but added first-round rookie WR Brian Thomas Jr. and free-agent WR Gabe Davis. They’ll also hope to get a healthier year from WR Christian Kirk, who missed the final five games of last season.
  • Engram averaged 10.4 targets over those final five games vs. 7.6 over the first 12 games with Kirk.
  • The Jaguars are expected to perform similarly to last season. They are tied for the second-highest win total in the AFC South at 8.5 wins on most sportsbooks.
  • They sit 17th in terms of highest Super Bowl odds at +5000 on most sportsbooks, second highest in the division.
  • Engram enters his eighth season at 30 years old. According to our aging curve research, the average TE with Engram’s career and profile will produce at 80% of his peak value at age-30.

Zay Jones, WR ARI

8:24am EST 12/24/23

Zay Jones not expected to play Week 16

Jaguars WR Zay Jones (knee, hamstring) is not expected to play vs. the Bucs today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We've had Jones projected out all week. His absence leaves Parker Washington and Jamal Agnew as Jacksonville's likely secondary WRs. WR Calvin Ridley and TE Evan Engram should dominate targets today.

Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence has cleared concussion protocol and will travel with the team to Tampa Bay, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Rapoport doesn't say whether Lawrence will start Sunday's game vs. the Bucs -- but we're not sure why he wouldn't, barring a setback. We'll look for further updates on Lawrence's status, but we're now projecting him in for Week 16. It's a significant boost for WR Calvin Ridley and TE Evan Engram.

Jaguars HC Doug Pederson labeled WR Zay Jones "day-to-day" with the hamstring injury he suffered in Sunday night's loss to the Ravens. It sounds like Jones dodged a serious injury, but fantasy owners can't be counting on him to play Week 16. With WR Christian Kirk also out, Jacksonville could be down to WRs Parker Washington, Jamal Agnew, Tim Jones, and Elijah Cooks behind Calvin Ridley. Ridley and TE Evan Engram should dominate targets vs. the Bucs on Sunday. We'll see whether they're catching passes from QB Trevor Lawrence (concussion) or QB C.J. Beathard.

The Jaguars are "planning" for QB Trevor Lawrence to start today's game vs. the Browns, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Lawrence's ankle will be evaluated in pregame warmups before a final decision is made. He's just six days removed from a high-ankle sprain but got in two limited practices to close the week and is "feeling better than expected," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's still tough to imagine that Lawrence will have much mobility inside or out of the pocket. Throw in the matchup against Cleveland's sixth-ranked QB defense, and Lawrence is not a recommended starter in 1-QB fantasy leagues. His availability is good news for Jacksonville's skill-position players, though.

Jaguars HC Doug Pederson said Friday morning that QB Trevor Lawrence (ankle) will be listed as questionable and "probably" be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Browns. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that Lawrence looked good throwing on Thursday and that "no one is counting him out" for this weekend's game. We'll continue to keep you updated on the situation. A gimpy Lawrence vs. a tough Cleveland defense in a game with potentially bad weather wouldn't be a recommended QB1 play. But his presence would be good news for Jacksonville's skill-position players.

Update: Lawrence was limited again in Friday's practice and is officially listed as questionable.
