Bounces back with four catches

Engram caught all four passes for 27 yards during Saturday's 20-16 win against the Titans.

Analysis: After managing just one reception during a Week 17 win at Houston, Engram bounced back somewhat in a regular-season finale in which quarterback Trevor Lawrence threw for 212 yards. With the help of two 100-yard performances Weeks 14 and 16, Engram also ended the campaign with career bests in catches (73) and receiving yards (766). The Jaguars clinched the AFC South with this Week 18 win, so he and his teammates will focus on hosting a wild-card round matchup next Saturday, Sunday or Monday.

Quiet in Week 17

Engram caught one pass for 16 yards on two targets against Houston on Sunday.

Analysis: Engram was red-hot going into Sunday's game, but the Jaguars passing game was mostly dormant in the 31-3 blowout victory. Jacksonville didn't have much reason to display their full playbook against a toothless opponent in a meaningless game, so hopefully Engram can get cooking again when the Jaguars face Tennessee for the AFC South title in Week 18.

Late-season surge continues in win

Engram secured seven of eight targets for 113 yards in the Jaguars' 19-3 win over the Jets on Thursday night.

Analysis: Engram comfortably paced the Jaguars in receptions, receiving yards and targets, continuing what has been a remarkable late-season breakout. The veteran tight end now has two 100-yard efforts in the last three games, putting together an elite 26-337-2 line on 33 targets over that span. Given his emergence and the Jaguars' ongoing postseason push, Engram figures to once again play a critical role in a Week 17 road matchup against the Texans a week from Sunday.

Leads team with eight catches

Engram recorded eight receptions on 10 targets for 62 yards in Sunday's 40-34 win over the Cowboys.

Analysis: Engram's sudden jump in involvement in the Jacksonville offense continued, as he tallied double-digit targets for the second consecutive week. That helped him lead the team in receptions, though he managed an inefficient 6.2 yards per target. Despite having long stretches with little production this season, Engram has seemingly emerged as a trustworthy option at tight end in the closing weeks of the season.

Shreds Titans in victory

Engram recorded 11 receptions on 15 targets for 162 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 36-22 win over the Titans.

Analysis: Engram had seen 14 targets combined across his last four games entering Sunday's matchup against Tennessee, but he suddenly became Trevor Lawrence's favorite target. Engram found the end zone on receptions of 12 and 21 yards to bring his touchdown total on the season to four. He was also potent with big plays, tallying four catches of 15 yards or more. Engram has topped 30 receiving yards in only six of 13 games this season, so despite the standout performance, it's difficult to project a duplicate effort in the near future.

Gets into end zone during loss

Engram brought in five of seven targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in the Jaguars' 40-14 loss to the Lions on Sunday.

Analysis: Engram was second in receptions, receiving yards and targets to Christian Kirk, making it a somewhat atypical afternoon for the veteran tight end. Engram also recorded a three-yard scoring grab late in the third quarter, only his second touchdown of the season. Engram does now have multiple catches in six of the last eight games, but the fact he's topped 50 receiving yards on just three occasions caps his overall upside going into a tough Week 14 road matchup against the Titans.

Hauls in lone target

Engram caught his lone target for four yards during Sunday's 28=27 win against the Ravens.

Analysis: Engram played 81 percent of the Jaguars' offensive snaps but was minimally involved in the passing game. The 28-year-old caught 19 passes for 231 yards and a touchdown from Weeks 5 to 8, but he has only five catches for 26 yards across the past three games.

Nov 28, 2022 1:26 PM EST

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.

Nov 14, 2022 7:16 AM EST

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.

Nov 11, 2022 1:21 PM EST

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.

Nov 10, 2022 12:54 PM EST

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.

Nov 9, 2022 2:31 PM EST

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.

Nov 7, 2022 10:18 AM EST

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.

Oct 30, 2022 1:06 PM EST

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.

Oct 17, 2022 10:04 AM EST

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.

Oct 9, 2022 4:30 PM EST

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.
