Draft note
by John Paulsen
Engram’s splits over the past two seasons–4.5 receptions for 47 yards and 0.17 touchdowns in 24 games–would put him firmly in the top eight when looking at last year’s top scorers. He had a sizable role last season (6.8 targets per game), though the arrival of Kenny Golladay will change the pecking order in the Giants’ receiving corps.

NYG TE Evan Engram - 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Evan Engram has slipped a bit since his excellent rookie year when he caught 64 balls for 722 yards and six touchdowns, but the talent is still there. He lines up in multiple areas of the field and is primarily a receiving option. He took 45.7% of his offensive snaps last season in either the slot or out wide. The Giants might have an improved offense with better health and additions to the passing game, which may extend drives and help Engram get more work in the red zone. Engram may also be extra motivated entering his fifth season, as he’s set to hit free agency after this year.

Fantasy Downside

There are a lot of reasons to be concerned about Engram. While he was mostly healthy last year, he tends to get nicked up. He missed eight games in 2019 and five the year before. Most concerning is the addition of talent around him. That could create more opportunities for him, but the additions of three pass-catchers – including veteran tight end Kyle Rudolph – along with the return of pass-catching stud Saquon Barkley, might mean there are slim picking available for Engram. Throw in Daniel Jones’ make-or-break status heading into his third year, and we have a lot of risk to sift through.

2021 Bottom Line

The talent is there with Engram, and if you can get him as a TE2 with upside at his 11th-round ADP, he’s not a bad option. He’s being drafted as the TE17 right now, which is a few slots below where we have him ranked. If he starts to get buzz and move up draft boards at all, he’ll be too risky to warrant drafting, but with this price tag, he’s worth a swing as long as you pair him with a safer option or be ready to take multiple late-round swings.
