Evan Engram 2020 Outlook


Recommended Posts

Sterling Shepard may help.   Look at his targets over the season...

Week 1- 7

Week 2 - 8 

Week 3 - 5

Week 4 - 10

Week 5 - 2

Week 6 - 3 

 

The first quarter of the year he was on fire.  Maybe with Barkley out, Shepard out, and Tate not being worth a s**t that defenses started shifting more attention that way?  I honestly haven't watched the games so I don't know.  It's just a theory.  Maybe when Shepard comes back it may open some things up slightly for him?

You gotta give Engram credit tonight. Man got creative in finding ways to not catch the ball. Whether it was dropping catches, not running routes, or committing offensive pass interference penalties,

Nice to see him getting goal line carries. 

Start him tonight - 3 catches for 21 yards. Bench him - 8 for 95, TD.

I'm a panthers fan and there was a rumor swirling on a panthers news ig that the were talks that Engram could get dealt to Carolina for Curtis Samuel. Not sure if it has any legs, but this place called the Trai Turner trade before it even happened. Either way, I think Engram is a very likely candidate to get moved at some point because Giants only have like 5 picks this draft and need to accumulate more bad. 

I've heard the new Giants regime are not huge Engram fans and would like to move him as well. I have no idea if it's true though. Pairing Samuel with Sterling Shepard and Golden Tate makes little sense but that's another story. Engram is badly in need of a change of scenery. He's a poor blocker and that is not going to endear him to a lot of coaches. I think it's gotten in his head some as well. He still has huge potential as a receiver if he can find the right fit and a situation where he is almost exclusively a reciever. He really is a wide reciever who got a little too big and someone made him a TE. Interestingly enough Chase Claypool's is he a WR or TE thing kind of reminded me of Engram when he was being scouted for this year's draft. Claypool was ultimately put in the right position and Engram wasn't to me.

Why do I always feel the need to start a Thursday night player to have part of the action? It makes me keep trying to convince myself that Engram is going to break out tonight, and that I should start him over better Sunday options 😂

My general rule of thumb for playing Thursday games:

Starting caliber RB: Start ‘em

Everyone else: Sit ‘em

I am sick inside thinking that... will be the outcome. I sure made a mistake drafting Engram . 

 

We couldn't predict giants offense would be this bad with Saquon and Shep being out and ... well Jason Garret though.

Decent game, except he dropped a pass that was right in his chest that would have led to a TD

It hit off the end of his fingertips. Should’ve been caught, but it wasn’t a perfect pass

Every week... 4.9 points in standard tonight

 

Honestly though, the usage was back up, he even had a red zone carry and a red zone target iirc. Ultimately hard to be that disappointed with 6/46 on 9 targets plus the 2 carries, especially considering how the year has gone so far. He won't make up his draft day value but I think you're probably starting him unless you're lucky enough to have picked up or traded for someone better.

Wasn't perfect but his reaction to not catching it speaks volumes. Just seemed apathetic especially since that would've been the game. I don't think this dude gives an F.

I can’t believe they put him back on the field... they never threw to
him over the middle the entire night.  I don’t know what happened to te post routes but they only throw it to golden Tate or sterling shepherd.   They finally gave him the big pass and tucking chokes... hope he becomes a better player on the ravens next week

Honestly, it's far past time to admit that this guys just sucks.  He has all the measurables you want... but just isn't good at football.

Unfortunately this is true. I was such a stan for so long. I decided to let it go finally this year as I was doing my researching during draft season. I would still love to see him get moved to see if that can get him going. That team/organization he plays for is in bad shape and he's had to deal with so many injuries as well. I want to see a fresh start.
