Giants Beat: TE Evan Engram, WR Sterling Shepard need to stay on field

What Evan Engram cannot do, at least thus far, is stay healthy. He played in 11 games in 2018 and only eight last season, forced out with ligament damage in his foot that required surgery.

No one wants to talk much about what happens next with Sterling Shepard. He sustained two concussions last season that forced him out of six games. He dealt with a migraine issue earlier in his career. These are cumulative health concerns, and if Shepard continues to encounter head and concussion issues he will not make it through the length of his contract.

Fantasy Impact: 

Despite the injury issues with both players, the talent is there. As a rookie in 2017, Engram had 11 receptions of 20 or more yards. In 2018, he averaged 8.7 yards after the catch per reception. That was second among all tight ends, behind only George Kittle. Shepard isn't a number-one WR, but he's a locker room asset and a nice compliment on the field. Having both healthy will be great news for Jones this year.
