Draft note
by John Paulsen
There is reason to be optimistic about Engram’s upside in 2019. Odell Beckham has been traded away, and Engram has played at a 76-945-6.0 pace in the 15 games over the last two seasons when Beckham has been sidelined. That pace jumps to 82-1043-5.8 when the four games that Sterling Shepard missed are excluded. (In other words, he was more efficient with Shepard in the lineup than without him, which bodes well for 2019.) The wild card is Golden Tate, who has been a target hog at times in his career. There is also the matter of the substandard targets of Eli Manning, who is well past his prime. Most signs point to a career year for Engram, but between Tate and Manning, there are a few different reasons why he may fail to live up to expectations.

Scouting report

NYG TE Evan Engram - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Evan Engram was limited to 11 games last season due to injuries, but he averaged 5.8 targets and 52.5 yards per game when he did play. His numbers were down from his rookie season when he caught 64 passes for 722 yards and six touchdowns, but he still demonstrated his seam-stretching ability and finished the season strong. He had at least 75 yards in each of his last four games. Engram should benefit from the departure of Odell Beckham Jr., who leaves 124 vacated targets. While many of those will go to the newly-acquired Golden Tate, some spillover will land with the talented Engram.

Fantasy Downside

Nicked up all year, Engram struggled and only nine touchdowns in 27 games isn’t the kind of scoring production you hope for from a potential elite tight end. The Giants could struggle in the passing game once again with Eli Manning back at quarterback until rookie Daniel Jones is ready to take over. Either option doesn’t inspire immediate confidence in the Giants improving upon their 23 passing touchdowns from a year ago – 21st in the league.

2019 Bottom Line

It’s risky to draft Engram super high because of the offense he’s in, but there’s value in grabbing him in the late-fifth round at his current ADP. There’s a steep drop in talent after him in our tight end rankings and he represents a high-upside, second-tier option for owners who believe in him. Engram’s rookie season demonstrated he has elite potential, so he’s worth the risk if he slides at all.
