Thoughts on NYG TE Evan Engram??

Recommended Posts

Any Giants fans out there? What are you hearing about this guy? I feel like he is not getting the love the other high pick rookie TEs are. He was not drafted in my league and I only have Ebron on my team at the moment. Anybody have any thoughts on this dude??

I took Engram late as a flier type in a league that just drafted (have Eifert too).

 

Historically rookie TEs don't do much. That said, Henry showed us it can be done. The Giants have used him all over the formation in preseason. Dude is fast and a natural playmaker. He's shown to block well too which will keep him on the field.

 

With all of the weapons on this team, he will find space and is fast enough to get underneath quick or take slower defenders up the seam. I'm a homer but also intrigued enough to see what happens. If you have a dud 6th receiver laying around, why not see what happens? Especially if you have a flex spot. Upside is there.

agree with @soopanuts, you hope he catches fire and becomes an Eli favorite or at least on the Radar of trust, before that happens he's going to be a stash-n-see.  

No one drafted him in our rookie dynasty draft but we do not have to play a TE position although I highlighted him as a guy I'm targeting as all our WR spots are WR/TE.  

I thought former Viking Rhett Ellison was still considered TE1?  Either way it's not 100% clear yet probably have to wait until season starts for more clarity.

Rhett was brought in to help block before the draft. They will share time depending on the situation, but if Engram can hold those blocks and open up the middle, watch out. I've been stashing him late wherever I can to see how things unfold.

Engram is definitely someone I'm watching, dude looks legit for sure.

I've been keeping an eye on him I even drafted him in some of my deeper leagues. An athletic TE mixed in with a loaded recieving corps makes me think he'll have a shot at some decent numbers. Idk it's just my opinion but I think he's gonna surprise a lot of ppl

Eli hasn't made any TE relevant in his entire career.  Not seeing that trend start now.
