2018 Fantasy Outlook
We've long been programmed to ignore rookie tight ends for fantasy purposes. The position is too dynamic, too tricky, too complicated, and often it's tied to a lot of blocking and grunt work. Engram tore up that conventional wisdom, producing the seventh-best fantasy season in history by a rookie tight end. And most of those beating Engram did it before fantasy football was even a thing - only Rob Gronkowski (2010) outscored Engram since 1990. What the Giants stumbled onto with Engram, intentionally or not, is a matchup nightmare who's really just a jumbo-sized receiver at 6-3, 240, with 4.42 speed. Engram still struggles as a blocker and it might never become a strength of his game. If you want to dock Engram's potential because of Eli Manning's age and foibles, that's perfectly reasonable. And the Giants have a lot of competition in the passing game, needing to find targets for Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard and rookie running back Saquon Barkley. But there's a legitimate chance Engram is a generational talent, and it's also possible new coach Pat Shurmur - who will also call the plays - is a miracle worker on offense. Consider what Shurmur did with Nick Foles in 2013, or with Case Keenum last year. If you're not afraid to spend a primary pick on a tight end, Engram is someone you need to evaluate and consider.

Season-high eight catches in loss
TENew York Giants
December 16, 2018
Engram corralled eight of 12 targets, putting up 75 receiving yards during Sunday's 17-0 loss to Tennessee.
ANALYSIS
Fresh off a hamstring injury that sidelined him for Weeks 12 and 13, Engram has been heavily involved over the past two games, garnering 17 combined targets against the Redskins and Titans. (He saw 4.7 targets per game through Week 11.) The promising second-year tight end is amidst a late-season resurgence that closely resembles his 2017 self, exceeding 70 receiving yards in back-to-back games after failing to hit that mark through his first seven outings of the year. An upcoming Week 16 showdown against Indianapolis doesn't provide optimism for Engram to snap his four-game scoring drought, however, as he'll face a Colts defense that's allowed only three tight end touchdowns all season (tied for third fewest in the NFL).

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Make no mistake, Engram's pass catching at Mississippi (not his blocking) pushed him into the first round of the NFL draft, with a 4.42 40 time boosting his cause. The Rebels deployed Engram at a number of positions -- tight end, H-back, slot receiver, outside receiver -- and his most common pre-draft comparison was Jordan Reed, an exciting player to be linked with. Even if Engram can get up to speed quickly -- and given all the hats the Giants would like him to wear, that seems like wishful thinking -- he'll have to deal with some Meadowlands gridlock. Odell Beckham Jr. is the key to the team's offense, Brandon Marshall was imported to fill a critical role and Sterling Shepard was useful as a rookie. The Giants wouldn't have selected Engram if they didn't see exciting down-the-road upside, but it's hard to envision a lot coming from him in Year 1.
