Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Engram finished 2020 just 20th in PPR points per game among TEs.
  • He ranked 4th among all TEs in target share, though, at 21.1%. That led all Giants. And his target share stood even higher (22.7%) in Sterling Shepard’s 11 full games.
  • Engram checked in 4th at the position in total targets, tied for 5th in receptions, 8th in yards and tied for 51st in TD receptions. Even with a rushing score, he totaled just 2 TDs on the year.
  • Engram’s fantasy struggles weren’t all bad luck, though. He ranked 40th in Pro Football Focus receiving grade among 55 TEs with 20+ targets. That marked a big dip from 20th in 2019, 11th in 2018 and 24th in 2017.
  • Engram also registered a career low in yards per route run, tying for 29th at the position. The previous 3 seasons found him ranking 17th, tied for 8th and 19th.
  • His YPRR dip came despite a deeper average depth of target than either of the previous 2 years. That elevated ADOT, though, still tied for just 35th at the position.
  • Engram’s catch rate fell for the 2nd straight season, from 70.3% in 2018 to 64.7% and then 57.8%. That helped produce career lows in receptions per game (3.9) and yards per game (40.9). Engram posted career highs in each category -- 5.5 catches, 58.4 yards -- in 2019.
  • The Giants signed WR Kenny Golladay and TE Kyle Rudolph in free agency, drafted WR Kadarius Toney in Round 1 and get stud receiving RB Saquon Barkley back from his Week 2 ACL tear in 2020.
  • Engram spent a career-high 46% of his snaps in the slot last season, plus 13.4% out wide. Rudolph, on the other hand, spent 85% and 88% inline the past 2 years.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

If the Giants returned similar personnel from 2020, then it would be easier to forecast a bounce back for Engram. But they added significant pass-catching pieces, including a TE they’ll pay $7 million this year. On top of that, Saquon Barkley returns after missing 14+ games. And even Sterling Shepard lost 5+ to injuries last season. Engram’s best hope is that the Kyle Rudolph signing signals more 2-TE sets. Rudolph arrives off playing almost exclusively inline, whereas Engram gets deployed more like a receiver.

Engram could still rebound enough statistically to finish among the top-12 at a volatile fantasy position. But he’ll have trouble approaching last year’s target share, which adds risk.

Giants TE Evan Engram (knee) is expected to play vs. the Browns tonight, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He went down in Friday's practice with what was originally listed as an ankle, now shows as a knee on the injury report and what Rapoport says is a calf. Either way, Engram will be operating at less than 100% tonight.

Giants TE Evan Engram (ankle) was added to the injury report on Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game vs. the Browns. We'll look for an update on Engram's status on Sunday morning. But between the injury and the Giants' QB situation, we'd try not to use Engram in Week 15 fantasy lineups.

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.
