Bobby Engram: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)The 36-year-old caught 47 passes for 489 yards with the Seahawks last season, but as recently as 2007, he has 94 catches. He'll be hard-pressed to match that total with the Chiefs, but if he can build a rapport that even approaches what QB Matt Cassel and Wes Welker had in 2008, he can be a useful possession receiver in real terms, and to a lesser degree in fantasy terms.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Bobby Engram.
Engram was signed in July to add veteran depth to what has been a struggling receiving corps. He is somewhat of a longshot to make the final roster, but he is still sure-handed and could end up sneaking onto the field for opening day if he proves he can keep up with the Browns' young receivers in camp.
The 36-year-old caught 47 passes for 489 yards with the Seahawks last season, but as recently as 2007, he has 94 catches. He'll be hard-pressed to match that total with the Chiefs, but if he can build a rapport that even approaches what QB Matt Cassel and Wes Welker had in 2008, he can be a useful possession receiver in real terms, and to a lesser degree in fantasy terms.
The 35-year-old Engram very quietly caught 94 passes last season thanks to an outstanding 70 percent catch rate Ė second only to Wes Welker among 100-target receivers. As a result, he averaged a respectable 8.6 yards per target despite just 12.2 yards per catch. With Deion Branch unlikely to be ready for the start of the season, Engram should again be Seattle's No. 1 receiver, though he's not likely to get a lot of red-zone looks (just 13 last season). He's also not much of a big-play threat, catching just one of his 134 targets for more than 40-yards and eight for more than 20. In short, Engram's a decent bet to catch a lot of short passes, but touchdowns will be hard to come by. Engram skipped the teamís voluntary minicamp in May due to a contract dispute, so be sure to check on his status with the team during summer.
Engram missed seven games last year because of Graves' disease, a thyroid condition that led to an accelerated heart rate, severe fatigue and weight loss. He'll reprise his possession-receiver role as Matt Hasselbeck's third-down option, but doesn't have great fantasy upside. D.J. Hackett will start in place of the departed Darrell Jackson, leaving Engram likely to see his usual amount of targets.
Engram led the Seahawks in receiving last season with 67 receptions for 778 yards, but only made it into the end zone three times. A possession receiver, his fantasy value is limited because he's not a red-zone threat. His draft position likely will yield receivers with more upside. With Engram, what you see is what you get -- don't draft him expecting many more touchdowns.
Bobby Engram is slated to take over split end for Koren Robinson, who was released in the offseason. Engram, though, isn't the downfield threat that usually typifies a split end. A possession receiver, Engram, usually, provides quarterback Matt Hasselbeck a nice third-down safety valve. But the Seahawks signed Joe Jurevicius, which could take away some of Engram's third-down opportunities. So, while it would seem Engram should see more passes without Robinson, it's likely he'll remain at his usual pace, which doesn't offer much fantasy value, save for ultra-deep leagues.
Engram is good for 50 catches, but his fantasy value is limited save for deep leagues. His six TD receptions from 2003 canít be banked on, as they were his first receiving scores since 1999. Still, Seattle's offense is prolific and Engram will reap some of that production after Darrell Jackson and Koren Robinson.
Engram is a key piece of the team's passing attack. He has quickly developed into quarterback Matt Hasselbeck's favorite third-down target. Of his 50 receptions last year, 43 went for a first down. But with Koren Robinson and Darrell Jackson on the squad, Engram doesn't figure to do much more than his 50 catches for 619 yards last season.
