Draft note
by John Paulsen
Engram has missed 14 games in three years and was reportedly still in a walking boot in February after undergoing surgery for his Lisfranc injury. When active, he has averaged 4.5 catches for 52 yards and 0.35 touchdowns, so he’s a fantasy TE1 when he’s healthy. Given the nature of his injury and the likelihood that he misses a few games in 2020, I’m passing on Engram at his current ADP. Late-round TE is just too appealing this year.

NYG TE Evan Engram - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

There’s a lot to like about Evan Engram. He’s a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses. He’s been productive when healthy, averaging 4.9 catches, 51.9 yards and 0.33 touchdowns in the nine games he was active last season. He led the team in targets through the first nine weeks of the season, as well is in target share. Engram at times has looked dominant and like an elite player at his position. He had 115 targets his rookie year and was on pace for 136 last season before missing the final seven games with a foot injury. If he stays on the field, he should be in line for continued production on a team that will likely be throwing the ball a lot.

Fantasy Downside

Health and a lack of end zone production are the biggest issues with Engram. He missed eight games last year and played just 11 the previous season due to several injuries, including a sprained MCL. Also, after six touchdowns as a rookie in 2017, he’s hit pay dirt just six times since. To get into true elite tight end status, he needs to be more of a threat in the red zone. He had the same amount of red-zone targets (11) last year as C.J. Uzomah and Dallas Goedert. Jacob Hollister had 12.

2020 Bottom Line

I’d love to have Engram on my roster, but his price tag is too steep considering the amount of time he’s missed the past two seasons. He’s currently going in the sixth round of 12-team leagues. While he has a ton of potential when he’s on the field, that kind of price tag is too steep when there are value options available even six rounds later (here’s looking at you Blake Jarwin). If he slides a couple rounds, he’s worth scooping up, but until he shows he can be more durable, he should be avoided at his current cost.
