Engram (calf) is expected to make his 2021 debut Sunday afternoon against the Falcons, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: The tight end never quite progressed to full participation, but he did say Friday that he'd had a "great" week of practice and should be ready for the game on Sunday. With Engram out of the lineup the past two weeks, Kyle Rudolph handled 74 percent snap share and seven targets, while Kaden Smith got 47 percent share and two looks. Engram is officially listed as questionable this week, though he can probably be viewed as 'probable' at this point.

Raymond (thigh) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest versus the Ravens.
Analysis: The Lions capped Raymond's practice reps all week, as he went down as a limited participant on all three injury reports due to a thigh issue, which popped up on the final Week 2 report. He managed to play 63 percent of the snaps on offense Monday in Green Bay, ending up with two catches (on two targets) for 18 yards. With Tyrell Williams (concussion) officially on IR as of Thursday, Raymond has a chance to be more involved in the offense, assuming he's out there Sunday alongside Quintez Cephus, Amon-Ra St. Brown and Trinity Benson.

Barkley (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Atlanta, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: While Barkley has still been listed as a limited participant in every practice this season, the Giants will drop the injury designation for Week 3. Barkley handled 84 percent snap share in the Week 2 loss to Washington, and he should be headed for a large workload on 10 days' rest against the Falcons. Blocking and QB play remain issues for Barkley and the rest of the Giants offense, but Atlanta's defense has looked even worse through two weeks.

Engram (calf) believes he's ready to return for Sunday's game against Atlanta, but the Giants have him listed as questionable on the final injury report, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Engram said a "great" week of practice has him ready for his season debut, though the Giants listed him as a limited participant Wednesday through Friday. He does seem more likely than not to play, albeit in a potential timeshare now that the Giants have Kyle Rudolph, who has seven targets and 74 percent snap share through two weeks. The team even has a competent No. 3 TE in Kaden Smith, though his role (47 percent of snaps) is on even thinner ice than Rudolph's once Engram is back in the mix. It remains to be seen if that will happen this Sunday, with the Giants releasing their inactive list approximately 90 minutes before the 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff. WR Kenny Golladay (hip) is the other prominent player listed as questionable, while RB Saquon Barkley and WR Kadarius Toney don't have injury designations for the game.

Beckham (knee) will play Sunday against the Bears, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Analysis: That news was relayed by coach Kevin Stefanski, who noted Friday that the wideout -- who is bouncing back from an ACL injury -- "looked good" and is "ready to go'' after practicing fully this week. Now that he's been cleared to play, the main question that remains with regard to Beckham's Week 3 fantasy prospects relates to what sort of workload he'll see in his first game action since last October.
