Evan Engram, TE, New York Giants
Engram was close to returning from a knee injury in Week 6, so the longest time between games that’s possible (without a bye) heading into a Monday night game against the Atlanta Falcons bodes well for his return in Week 7. In the two games he started and finished prior to his injury, Engram had 12 targets.
Atlanta were in the top-10 of the league against tight ends (ESPN PPR scoring) through five weeks, but 77 yards and two touchdowns allowed to Buccaneers’ tight ends O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate in Week 6 pushed them out of that standing and they’ve allowed a touchdown to the position in two of their last three games now.
With the lack of serviceable tight ends out there, Engram needs to be re-added back toward 100 percent owned in fantasy leagues. Be sure to check on his availability in your league, like right now.
