Quiet in Kansas City

Engram caught three of four targets for 14 yards during Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Chiefs.

Analysis: Engram had a four-yard touchdown catch nullified by a penalty during the third quarter but otherwise played a minor role in the passing game. The 28-year-old didn't appear bothered by the back injury he suffered last week and played 88 percent of the offensive snaps. He has only four catches for 22 yards over the past two games and will enter the Jaguars' Week 11 bye with 36 receptions for 352 yards and one touchdown on the season.

Cleared for Week 10 action

Engram (back) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Chiefs after practicing fully Friday.

Analysis: Per Adam Stites of USA Today, Engram played a season-low 55 percent of the Jaguars' snaps in last Sunday's win over the Raiders and was seen on the sideline receiving treatment on his back during that contest. In the process, Engram caught just one of his two targets for eight yards. Now that he's logged a full practice ahead of Week 10 action, Engram will be available versus Kansas City and the tight end is a bounce-back candidate in the absence of any in-game setbacks. Prior to his quiet effort last weekend, Engram had racked up 19 catches for 231 yards on 29 targets and a TD over his previous four games.

Logs another limited practice

Engram (back) remained limited at practice Thursday.

Analysis: After having logged back-to-back limited practices, Engram presumably will need to practice fully Friday in order to avoid an injury designation for Sunday's game against Kansas City. The tight end is coming off a one-catch effort in Week 9, but overall he's compiled a 33-338-1 line on 47 targets through nine games.

Limited practice Wednesday

Engram (back) was limited at practice Wednesday.

Analysis: Per John Shipley of SI.com, coach Doug Pederson previously called Engram day-to-day, but noted that the tight end should be fine for this weekend's game against Kansas City. In this past Sunday's 27-20 win over the Raiders, Engram caught just one of his two targets for eight yards, while logging a season-low 55 percent snap share and being spotted on the sideline receiving treatment on his back, according to Adam Stites of USA Today.

Should be fine for Week 10

Coach Doug Pederson said Monday that Engram, who briefly left Sunday's win over the Raiders due to a back injury, is considered day-to-day and should be fine for Week 10, John Shipley of SI.com reports.

Analysis: Engram caught one of two targets for eight yards during the contest, but after securing his only reception, he left the field pointing to his lower back. It appears the talented tight end has avoided a major injury, but fantasy mangers are still encouraged to monitor Engram's status throughout the week.

Tallies first touchdown

Engram recorded four receptions on six targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 21-17 loss to the Broncos.

Analysis: Engram led the Jaguars in receptions and yards, highlighted by a 22-yard touchdown to open the scoring in the first quarter. It was his first time in the end zone and his fourth reception of 20 or more yards for the season. Engram has quietly emerged as a consistent producer, as he's tallied at least four receptions in four consecutive games and has also topped 50 receiving yards three times in that span.

Four catches against former team

Engram caught four of seven targets for 67 yards in Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Giants.

Analysis: Engram came two yards short of his season high, but it wasn't enough to beat the Giants team with which the tight end spent his first five seasons before leaving for Jacksonville in free agency. He's still searching for his first touchdown as a Jaguar heading into a Week 8 home game against the Broncos.

Oct 23, 2022 2:58 PM EST


Five catches in Week 6

Engram caught five of six targets for 40 yards in Sunday's 34-27 loss to the Colts.

Analysis: Engram has seen increased involvement recently, catching 11 of 16 targets for 109 yards over the past two weeks. The former Giants tight end has yet to find the end zone as a member of the Jaguars, but given the lack of tight end depth around the league, Engram's recent uptick in usage gives him appeal in deeper formats.

Season-high 10 targets

Engram had six receptions (10 targets) for 69 yards in Sunday's 13-6 loss to the Texans.

Analysis: Engram turned in his best fantasy line of the season after posting a pair of duds in Weeks 3 and 4 (two combined catches for 25 yards). The athletic tight end lived up to that label, showing burst on a couple of impressive catch and runs. The 27-year-old has 19 receptions for 168 yards and no touchdowns through five games as the Jaguars' starting tight end. Perhaps this strong game could get Engram going heading into a matchup against the Colts next Sunday.

One reception Sunday

Engram caught his lone target for 16 yards during Sunday's 29-21 loss to the Eagles.

Analysis: The 28-year-old was a prime candidate to be more involved in the passing game Sunday with Zay Jones (ankle) sitting out, but the offense as a whole struggled in large part due to Trevor Lawrence's five giveaways. Engram played 74 percent of the offensive snaps but now has only two receptions on four targets for 25 yards over the past two weeks.

Oct 3, 2022 1:17 PM EST


Minimal production Week 3

Engram caught one of three targets for nine yards and rushed once for zero yards during Sunday's 38-10 win against the Chargers. He also caught a two-point conversion.

Analysis: Engram appeared to have his first touchdown of the season late in the first half, but the catch was ruled incomplete upon review. The 28-year-old played 76 percent of Jacksonville's offensive snaps but wasn't a factor in the passing game during the blowout victory, as Trevor Lawrence honed in on wideouts Christian Kirk and Zay Jones to great success. Engram now has 12 catches for 83 yards through the first three weeks of the season.

Sep 26, 2022 10:44 AM EST


More involved Sunday

Engram caught seven of eight targets for 46 yards during Sunday's 24-0 win against the Colts.

Analysis: Engram once again worked as the Jaguars' primary tight end and led the team with eight targets, though the yardage was limited since most of his action came underneath. The 28-year-old has caught 11 of 12 targets for 74 yards through the first two weeks of the season.

Sep 19, 2022 10:00 AM EST


Catches four passes Week 1

Engram caught all four of his targets for 28 yards during Sunday's 28-22 loss to the Commanders.

Analysis: Engram tied for fourth on Jacksonville in targets and unsurprisingly operated as the team's clear No. 1 tight end. The 28-year-old wasn't significantly involved in the passing game, as wideouts Christian Kirk and Zay Jones combined for 21 targets on Trevor Lawrence's 42 pass attempts. Engram will need to become more involved if he's to be anything more than a touchdown-reliant fantasy option this year.

Sitting out preseason finale

Engram is not in line to play in Saturday's preseason finale against the Falcons, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Analysis: Engram is among the Jaguars' key players sitting out the contest and the tight end's next game action will occur in Week 1 against the Commanders. At that time, Engram is slated to serve as Jacksonville's top tight end, with Chris Manhertz, Dan Arnold and Luke Farrell in the depth mix at the position.

Aug 27, 2022 10:51 AM EST


Not playing Thursday

Engram won't play in the Hall of Fame Game against the Raiders on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Participants in this exhibition rarely trot out starters, so this comes as no surprise. Along with Engram, fellow tight end Chris Manhertz won't suit up, leaving Dan Arnold, Luke Farrell, Grayson Gunter and Gerrit Prince available to the Jags at the position.

Aug 4, 2022 3:54 PM EST


Joining Jaguars

Engram is slated to sign a one-year deal with the Jaguars, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Per Schefter, Engram's looming pact is a fully-guaranteed $9 million deal that could reach $10 with incentives. The 27-year-old, who caught 46 of his 73 targets for 408 yards and three TDs in 15 games for the Giants in 2021, now figures to be a key target for Jacksonville's young franchise QB, Trevor Lawrence. In that context, Engram appears poised to see an uptick in targets in 2022, with a corresponding boost in his fantasy output a plausible outcome should he avoid injuries and maintain a higher level of consistency in the process.

Modest season in Year 5

Engram caught 46 of 73 targets for 408 yards and three TDs in 2021.

Analysis: The 23rd overall pick in 2017, Engram has been a disappointment in New York, though his modest production in 2021 can hardly be blamed on him. He'll be a free agent after the season, and he's likely to ply his wares elsewhere in 2022. There's still a ton of physical talent here (4.42 40), but Engram's focus has been inconsistent, and he's not much of a blocker.

Jan 11, 2022 1:06 AM EST


Catches one pass

Engram caught one of his two targets for 12 yards Sunday against the Bears.

Analysis: Engram actually led the team in receiving in the process, underscoring how brutal the Giants passing offense has been of late. Jake Fromm will take over for Mike Glennon in Week 18, but it's unlikely he makes a significant difference.

Jan 3, 2022 3:24 PM EST


Finds end zone in loss

Engram caught four of five targets for 17 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-10 loss to the Eagles.

Analysis: Engram's score was the Giants' only touchdown in the blowout loss to the Eagles, saving his fantasy day. The veteran tight end now has just three touchdowns on the season. With New York's offense being led by a either Mike Glennon or Jake Fromm, it is hard to have confidence in Engram to have much of an impact in a Week 17 matchup with the Bears.

Dec 29, 2021 8:09 AM EST


Catches four passes in loss

Engram caught four of five targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 21-6 loss to the Cowboys.

Analysis: Engram's underwhelming season continue in Week 15, as he failed to see the end zone for the fifth straight week. In that same stretch, however, the veteran tight end is averaging five targets per game. The opportunities have been there, but they are just not resulting in much fantasy production. Engram will likely continue to struggle going forward in a bad offense, making him hard to trust in the fantasy playoffs. The Giants get a matchup with the Eagles in Week 16.
