New York Giants tight end Evan Engram should be able to build off of a strong second half against the Cowboys in Week 2 heading into this weekend's game against the Texans. Engram caught a late touchdown and finished with seven receptions for 67 yards in Week 2. The second-year tight end will face a Texans defense that has been exploited by tight end's in the first two games for a combined nine catches for 138 yards and one touchdown. Engram is an athletic, pass-catching tight end that can stretch the field but the Giants offense has struggled through the first two weeks. Engram is worth a play in most formats and has a shot at top-5 status among tight ends for Week 3.
New York Giants tight end Evan Engram (ankle) and wide receiver/kick returner Kaelin Clay (ankle) were limited in practice on Wednesday. Engram should be fine to play in Week 3 against the Texans unless he suffers a setback this week. He has nine catches on 12 targets for 85 yards and a touchdown through two weeks and is a strong TE1 choice.
New York Giants tight end Evan Engram caught seven passes for 67 yards, including a touchdown in garbage time of the Giants 20-13 loss to the Cowboys. The score gave the Giants a glimmer of hope at the time but the offense struggled on a night when the offensive line surrendered six sacks. Engram took advantage of the Cowboys prevent defense late to make several catches in the final drives to end up with a solid fantasy stat-line. Engram is just one of many explosive weapons on a New York offense that has look disjointed through the first two games. Engram will try and produce en route to a victory in Week 3 when the Giants travel to Houston to take on the Texans.
