Evan Engram Wants To Be More Of A Deep Threat

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram set the single-season franchise record in 2023 with 114 catches for 963 yards and four touchdowns in 17 regular-season games to earn his second trip to the Pro Bowl. After two very successful year in Jacksonville, Engram is now looking to be a bigger downfield threat than ever before, which would include more big plays and touchdowns, perhaps putting him in the elite tight end category that includes Travis Kelce, George Kittle and Sam LaPorta. Engram's 241 targets and 187 catches over the last two years are the most of any player on the roster and the most of any TE in the NFL. His 187 catches over that span are second among TEs only to Kelce's 203. Engram was the most-targeted TE last year, and only David Njoku had more yards after the catch than his 516. But his 8.4 yards per catch ranked 26th at the position. Draft Engram as a solid midrange TE1 and hope he can deliver on his goals in his third year with the Jags.

Evan Engram Has Looked "Fantastic" At OTAs

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram has quietly been one of the best at his position in fantasy football over the last two seasons, and team reporter John Shipley said he has looked "fantastic" this summer at OTAs. The former first-round pick by the New York Giants in 2017 has found a great home with Jacksonville and catching passes from Trevor Lawrence. Over the last two years, he's hauled in 187 passes for 1,729 yards and eight touchdowns. He trails only Travis Kelce in receptions among tight ends since 2022, and his 114 receptions in 2023 rank second-most in a single season for tight ends all-time. After the departure of Calvin Ridley and Zay Jones, Engram should continue to be heavily targeted in 2024. Despite finishing as the TE2 (PPR) last season, he has an average draft position around the TE7 spot. He could provide immense value at cost.

Evan Engram Has 10 Catches In Loss

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram caught 10 of his 13 targets for 79 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's meeting with the Titans. With the loss, the Jaguars were eliminated from postseason contention. However, Engram put forth his best effort, so he can't shoulder much of the blame. Overall, the 29-year-old arguably had the best season of his career. He caught 114 passes, doing so despite the subpar play of Trevor Lawrence. Engram also nearly hit the 1,000-yard receiving mark and found the end zone four times. That said, his stock will be much higher than most at the position ahead of the 2024-25 campaign. If Lawrence can get his act together, Engram could be in line for his best year in the league.

Evan Engram An Easy TE1 Play At Titans

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram heads to Nashville to face the Titans in a "win and in" playoff scenario this Sunday. The veteran tight end continued his career year last week, adding a team high-six catches and 60 yards to his already stellar numbers. Engram is now just six receptions away from being the fourth tight end in league history to record 110 or more catches. While he has still only recorded three scores on the season, Engram is first in targets and second in yards after the catch among tight ends. Even if C.J. Beathard draws the start for a second consecutive week, Engram is a no-brainer play against a reeling Titans defense. While Tennessee has been able to limit opposing tight ends, Engram's target volume is simply too high to leave on fantasy benches.

Evan Engram Has Six Catches In Week 17

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram had a team-high six catches for 60 yards in Sunday's win over the Carolina Panthers. Travis Etienne Jr. did most of the heavy lifting on the offensive end in this one, finishing with two rushing touchdowns. However, Engram was still productive for fantasy managers, doing so with backup C.J. Beathard under center. At any rate, the 29-year-old now has 104 catches in 16 games this season, the most of his career by far. While Engram has just three touchdowns this season, he's still a top fantasy tight end, meaning he should be in the lineup for Week 18 versus the Titans.

Evan Engram Has Team-High Six Grabs On Sunday

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram had a team-high six catches for 60 yards in Sunday's win over the Carolina Panthers. Travis Etienne Jr. did most of the heavy lifting on the offensive end in this one, finishing with two rushing touchdowns. However, Engram was still productive for fantasy managers, doing so with backup C.J. Beathard under center. At any rate, the 29-year-old now has 104 catches in 16 games this season, the most of his career by far. While Engram has just three touchdowns this season, he's still a top fantasy tight end, meaning he should be in the lineup for Week 18 versus the Buccaneers.

Evan Engram With Usual TE1 Status vs. Panthers

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram heads into a pivotal Week 17 home matchup against Carolina tomorrow. It's been a tale of streaks for the veteran tight end this season. Engram hit four consecutive top-10 weekly finishes to start the year, then failed to reach that mark for the next seven in half-PPR scoring. He's been a top-six option at the position in three out of the past four outings, but now finds himself in a tough matchup at home against the Panthers. Carolina ranks top-five in fantasy points allowed to the position in 2023 and are second in yards allowed to tight ends. Backup C.J. Beathard will start, but this shouldn't hurt Engram's value very much given that he been the quarterback's favorite target when both players have been on the field. With a banged up group of pass-catchers, Engram should command a significant target share and thus cannot be left out of fantasy lineups even with a difficult matchup.

Evan Engram Records 95 Yards In Loss to Tampa Bay

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram caught 10 passes for 95 yards, also losing a fumble in a 30-12 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Engram once again led the team in targets and tied a career high with 15, giving fantasy managers another top-ten weekly finish at his position. Not much was working for the Jags all game long but quarterback Trevor Lawrence hit Engram countless times over the middle which led to Engram tying a season-high in receiving yards. The veteran remains one of the most reliable options at tight end and will hope to continue his solid play next week vs. the Carolina Panthers.

Evan Engram Locked Into Lineups For Week 16

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram takes on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a vital Week 16 clash. Engram unfortunately fell victim to the elite Baltimore Ravens defense last week, posting his lowest output of the season. However, the game prior he was TE1 with 27 half-PPR points, which was the second-highest total of his career. The Bucs ranks 26th against opposing tight-ends on the season, and with Engram likely to receive even more looks with Zay Jones banged up and Christian Kirk remaining out, the vet is a lineup lock for Week 16. Except top-five production this week.

Evan Engram Produces 28 Scoreless Yards Vs. Ravens

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram secured four passes on six targets for 28 yards in a loss to Baltimore. The veteran tight end almost reached 'on fire' status, but ended up sinking with the rest of the Jaguars weapons in a disappointing effort. After two dominant 20+ point performances, Engram came back down to earth with only 4.8 half-PPR fantasy points, which gave him a season-worst TE28 finish on the year. The former Ole Miss star is still an incredibly crucial part of this offense, tying for third on the team in targets, but the Jaguars need to take a step back and reevaluate their plan of attack after a third straight loss. Things should get much easier next week when the Jaguars travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers.

Evan Engram A Top-Five Option In Week 15

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram heads into a Week 15 AFC showdown on Sunday Night Football with the Baltimore Ravens. Consecutive monster outings for Engram have catapulted him to TE5 on the season through 14 weeks. Engram is the No. 1 scoring tight end since Week 10 and ranks No. 2 in that time span in targets received, only behind David Njoku of the Browns. Baltimore presents a uniquely tough matchup with the Ravens ranking No. 9 against the position on the season, but Engram is simply too hot to be left on benches this week. His target volume and importance to this passing attack make him a top-five option once again.

Evan Engram Has Career Day Against Browns

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram hauled in 11 passes on 12 targets for 95 yards and two scores in a loss at Cleveland on Sunday. It was a monster performance from the veteran tight end, whose 27-half PPR points marked the second most of his long career. Engram was reeling in passes all over the field with the Jaguars playing from behind the entire game and caught almost everything thrown his way. His 91% catch percentage was by far the highest on the team (minimum five targets), and he also received the most red zone looks on the day. This week also marked two straight games with touchdowns after being held out of the end zone in Weeks 1-12. Even with the tough matchup next week at Baltimore, Engram is a lineup lock in any size league.

Dec 10, 2023 10:24 PM EST


Evan Engram Remains A TE1 vs. Browns

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram travels to Cleveland to take on a tough Browns defense in Week 14. The veteran tight-end had his best game of the year last week against Cincy, posting a 9-82-1 line en route to a season-high TE3 weekly finish. Engram may be the only pass-catcher who isn't set to take a major hit if the Jaguars go with backup quarterback C.J. Beathard this Sunday. The Ole Miss product caught multiple passes from Beathard when he stepped into the game, operating as a safe check-down option which will likely be very important in this one due to the projected nasty weather conditions. Start Engram with confidence yet again in a tough matchup.

Evan Engram Has Season-Best Game Vs. Bengals On Monday

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram caught nine passes for 82 yards and a score on Monday Night against Cincinnati. The veteran pass-catcher took full advantage of his plus-matchup, absolutely torching the Bengals defense all night. Engram also broke his NFL-leading 84 targets without a touchdown when he caught a quick swing pass from quarterback Trevor Lawrence before turning on the burners for a 22-yard score. The former first-round pick's 23.2 PPR points tonight marked a season-high, and his nine receptions marked the second-highest total of the season. While quarterback Trevor Lawrence had to exit the game in the fourth quarter due to an ankle injury, Engram was the favorite target of backup quarterback C.J. Beathard, hauling in four passes in only two drives. It was a great all-around performance for Engram, but things do not get easier next week when the Jaguars travel to Cleveland.

Evan Engram Still Searching For TD Heading Into Week 13

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram faces the Cincinnati Bengals in a home Week 13 primetime showdown. Another week, another scoreless affair for the veteran who just keeps adding more targets to his league-leading 84 looks without a touchdown. Engram led the team in targets against the Texans which included two in the end zone, so the Jaguars are clearly looking for the athletic pass-catcher in scoring position. To further help his case, Cincy ranks 30th against opposing tight ends and just allowed Pat Freiermuth to put up 120 yards on nine receptions in his first full game since Week 4. Engram has a great chance to finally break his scoreless streak on MNF. Lock him into your tight-end slot this week.

Evan Engram Logs 49 Yards In Win Vs. Texans

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram secured five receptions on a team-high eight targets for 49 yards in a victory at Houston on Sunday. That is now a league-leading 82 targets without a score this season for the veteran tight end. Engram came very close to securing that slippery touchdown, but Lawrence missed him multiple times in the end zone unfortunately. Regardless, it was another safe PPR output from Engram, who now has seven top-10 weekly finishes at his position this year, which is tied for second in the NFL. Next week brings a Bengals defense that was just shredded by Pat Freiermuth.

Evan Engram In A Great Spot At Texans

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram squares off against the Houston Texans in Week 12. Engram has mostly been a rock-solid PPR option at his position, with only three games below 9.5 fantasy points. Two of those have come in the last couple of weeks, but he now goes up against a Texans defense that is 31st in the NFL against the tight end. Engram also leads the league in targets without a touchdown (74) by a whopping 23 targets! The veteran tight end is due for a big week and the stars are aligning for one this Sunday.

Nov 25, 2023 4:47 PM EST


Evan Engram With Another Modest Effort In Win Against Titans

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram pulled in four receptions for 29 yards in a blowout win vs. the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. It was the second straight game Engram was held under 30 yards, which is not going to get it done for fantasy managers. The Titans are one of the better units at defending the tight end position and firmly held the veteran tight end in check. Quarterback Trevor Lawrence had a lot of success attacking the Tennessee DBs, as Calvin Ridley shined for 100+ yards and two scores. Engram was still tied for second on the team in targets with six, so his involvement in the passing game has not dropped off. Regardless, his output these past few weeks is a bit concerning, but the good news is that Engram gets a Texans defense in Week 12 that ranks dead last in the NFL against the tight end position.

Evan Engram Should Rebound vs. Titans In Week 11

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram draws the Titans in Week 11, after mustering only 12 yards against San Fran this past week. All members of the Jaguars offense not named Christian Kirk disappointed in Week 10, as they were completely shut down by a 49ers unit on extra rest. To make matters worse, the Titans have been great against the tight-end position ranking second league-wide in fantasy points given up. It's still not advisable to bench Engram given his defined role in this offense and target share, but don't expect a boom game.

Nov 17, 2023 11:41 AM EST


Evan Engram Held To 12 Yards Vs. 49ers

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram caught four passes for only 12 yards in a 34-3 loss against San Francisco in Week 10. It was a rare down week for the veteran tight end, who like receiver Christian Kirk, has been one of the most reliable options at his position every week. Quarterback Trevor Lawrence struggled mightily to get anything going, with the 49ers defensive unit playing lights-out across the board, and Engram suffered as a result. The silver lining here is that Engram still drew seven targets, which was second on the team behind the aforementioned Kirk. The former Ole Miss standout will look to get back on track against the Titans' struggling defense next week.
