Giants TE Evan Engram (calf, questionable) was limited Friday after taking full reps earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 15. Engram picked up a calf injury this week and is now iffy for Sunday Night Football. Owners who want to wait on Engram could potentially pivot to Austin Hooper, Drew Sample or Kaden Smith.
CIN TE Drew Sample - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 8 vs. Tennessee
Drew Sample was targeted six times last Sunday which produced 52 yards. They were good numbers considering what the other skill players on the Bengals were able to accumulate on a day when QB Joe Burrow threw for over 400 yards and three touchdowns. The main issue is there are so many weapons in Cincinnati that Sample could be the odd man out when the numbers regress on certain weeks.
Sample faces the Titans who are 31st in aFPA to tight ends. Despite the favorable matchup, there are too many other options for targets. He will get some numbers but he's still a TE2 and is a depth guy on your roster at best.
