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.

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.

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.

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.

Dec 22, 2021 8:03 AM EST

Catches one pass

Engram caught one of four targets Sunday for eight yards.

Analysis: Engram is an inconsistent player stuck in a terrible passing game.

Dec 14, 2021 3:48 AM EST

Makes four catches

Engram recorded four receptions on five targets for 61 yards in Sunday's 20-9 loss to the Dolphins.

Analysis: Engram was able to take advantage of several absences among the Giants' receiving corps to lead the team in receiving yards. He overcame a largely dysfunctional Giants offense to record four double-digit gains, ranging from 10 to 18 yards. Though he hasn't posted exceptional numbers, Engram has found a consistent role in the offense by recording at least three receptions in seven of his nine games this season.

Dec 5, 2021 4:43 PM EST

Makes three catches

Engram caught three passes for 37 yards on six targets against Philadelphia on Sunday.

Analysis: The efficiency was less than sparkling, but there's perhaps encouragement to be found in the fact that Engram's six targets were the second-highest total for the Giants on Sunday, trailing only Kenny Golladay's seven targets. The Giants passing game might need to lean on Engram again when they head to Miami in Week 13, especially if slot receivers Sterling Shepard and Kadarius Toney miss that game with their respective quadriceps injuries. The question of whether Engram and Daniel Jones can capitalize is of course very different, and not one that invites confidence.

Nov 28, 2021 2:32 PM EST

Catches two passes

Engram caught two of five targets for 12 yards in Monday's 30-10 loss to the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Engram played on 90 percent of the team's offensive snaps Monday, the most of any Giants pass catcher. The team struggled moving the ball through the air against Tampa Bay, and Engram wasn't able to get much going after scoring a touchdown in each of his previous two games. The 6-foot-3, 240-pound tight end will look to bounce back when the Giants host the Eagles in Week 12.

Nov 24, 2021 8:18 AM EST

Finds end zone again

Engram recorded three receptions on three targets for 38 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 23-16 win over the Raiders.

Analysis: Engram tied for second on the team with only three targets, an indication of how little the Giants took to the air Sunday. However, he was efficient with his targets, highlighted by a 30-yard touchdown reception to cap the team's first offensive possession. Engram has now found the end zone in each of his last two games and has benefited from the New York's banged up receiving corps. That could change moving forward however, as the Giants head into a Week 10 bye that will presumably allow them to get healthier.

Nov 7, 2021 6:40 PM EST

Scores in defeat

Engram caught three of four targets for 15 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 20-17 loss to the Chiefs.

Analysis: Engram didn't get involved until the second half, but he put the Giants ahead with a five-yard touchdown catch to begin the fourth quarter. That marked the tight end's first trip to the end zone this season. Although usually hard to rely on, Engram's stock could benefit from New York's other offensive skill-position players being so banged up in advance of Week 9's matchup versus the Raiders.

Nov 1, 2021 9:50 PM EST

All clear for Monday

Engram (calf) was not listed on the injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Chiefs, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Engram was never in any serious jeopardy of missing Monday's game and has an opportunity to build on his season-high marks from last week with Kenny Golladay (knee) and Saquon Barkley (ankle) once again unable to play. This could also be a showcase contest for the 2017 first-round pick given the ever-increasing trade rumors surrounding Engram as the team once again limits through a disappointing campaign.

Oct 30, 2021 10:37 AM EST

Still limited by calf injury

Engram (calf) remained limited in practice Friday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Engram missed the first two games of the season due to his injured calf, but he has suited up for every game since, despite frequent appearances on Big Blue's injury report. With trade rumors swirling around him heading into the Nov. 2 trade deadline, Engram will have an opportunity to entice potential suitors with a strong performance Monday against a Chiefs defense that has allowed a league-high 575 yards to tight ends through seven games.

Oct 29, 2021 12:12 PM EST

Dealing with calf issue

Engram was limited by a calf injury at Thursday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Engram was absent from Wednesday's unofficial session, but he jumped back into some drills for the start of Week 8 prep Thursday. He'll have two more practices to prove his health ahead of Monday's visit to Kansas City. If he's available, Engram could see more work than usual due to the banged-up nature of the Giants' skill positions. WRs Kenny Golladay (knee) and Kadarius Toney (ankle) and RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) didn't practice Thursday, while WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) and TE Kaden Smith (knee) were limited like Engram.

Oct 28, 2021 2:36 PM EST

Spotted at practice Thursday

Engram (undisclosed) practiced Thursday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: The tight end didn't take the practice field Wednesday, so his participation in Thursday's session suggests that he's trending in the right direction in advance of Monday night's game against Kansas City. The Giants' upcoming injury report will reveal Engram's participation level, but he'll presumably need to practice fully by the end of the week in order to avoid a Week 8 injury designation.

Oct 28, 2021 10:01 AM EST

Absent from practice Wednesday

Engram (undisclosed) is not participating in Wednesday's practice, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Analysis: Engram is inside team facilities with the training staff to begin Wednesday's session, so it would appear that he's dealing with an undisclosed injury. With the likes of Saquon Barkley (ankle), Kenny Golladay (knee) and Sterling Shepard (hamstring) all having missed time recently, Engram has logged four straight games with at least three catches. The tight end will benefit from a bit of extra time to get healthy before Monday's road matchup against the Chiefs.

Oct 27, 2021 8:34 AM EST

Tallies six receptions

Engram recorded six receptions on eight targets for 44 yards in Sunday's 25-3 win over the Panthers.

Analysis: Engram led the team with six receptions, as he benefited from the absence of Kenny Golladay (knee), Sterling Shepard (hamstring) and Kadarius Toney (ankle). He worked primarily in the short areas of the field but did manage an 18-yard gain late in the first quarter to push the Giants deep into Carolina territory. Engram now has at least three receptions in each of his last four games, though his ability to rack up targets will be hurt as the team's receiving corps gets healthier.

Oct 24, 2021 5:52 PM EST

Suiting up Week 7

Engram (calf) is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Engram has been hindered by a calf injury all season, but after sitting out Weeks 1 and 2, he's suited up for each of the last four contests. His production has been less than inspiring -- 14 catches (on 21 targets) for 127 yards and no TDs -- but he should be a key part of the game plan in a skill-position group without Saquon Barkley (ankle), Kenny Golladay (knee), Sterling Shepard (hamstring) and Kadarius Toney (ankle). Engram's key competition for looks will come in the form of Darius Slayton (hamstring), Dante Pettis, John Ross (hamstring) and fellow tight end Kyle Rudolph.

Oct 24, 2021 8:42 AM EST

Expected to play Sunday

Engram (calf), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, is expected to play, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Engram got back on the practice field Friday after missing Thursday's practice, which also suggests he'll be able to play. That being said, fantasy managers will still need to double check Engram's status prior to Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff.

Oct 23, 2021 10:48 PM EST

Questionable against Carolina

Engram (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ Advance Media reports.

Analysis: Engram got back on the practice field Friday after missing Thursday's practice, which is a good sign for his potential availability, but fantasy managers will still need to double-check his status prior to kickoff Sunday. Kyle Rudolph would climb to the top of the Giants' tight end depth chart if Engram can't go, but there's little reason to expect him to make much of the opportunity considering Rudolph was a non-factor during Engram's two-game absence to begin the season.
