Last week was a tough one for the New York Giants pass catches, but tight end Evan Engram still saw a decent target share with noodle-armed backup Colt McCoy under center for that one. Engram had four catches on eight targets for 32 yards, which was more yardage than anyone among the team’s top three wideouts had. This week against the Cardinals with Daniel Jones back at quarterback, Engram is a solid fantasy option.
Fantasy Football analysis: Giants TE Evan Engram
The week before last Engram exploded for 129 yards against the Bengals. He caught six of nine targets in that one. He’s seen at least eight targets in four of his last five games. That alone is enough to make him a regular starter in most fantasy lineups this season.
The Cardinals gave up a touchdown and 68 yards to the Rams’ tight ends last week. And while no tight end has had a really big day against Arizona this season, Engram’s target share in the Giants' offense makes him a safe bet to produce at least a few points. He’s a TE1 in this season where good help is so hard to find at the position.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Evan Engram.
