2018 Fantasy Outlook
We've long been programmed to ignore rookie tight ends for fantasy purposes. The position is too dynamic, too tricky, too complicated, and often it's tied to a lot of blocking and grunt work. Engram tore up that conventional wisdom, producing the seventh-best fantasy season in history by a rookie tight end. And most of those beating Engram did it before fantasy football was even a thing - only Rob Gronkowski (2010) outscored Engram since 1990. What the Giants stumbled onto with Engram, intentionally or not, is a matchup nightmare who's really just a jumbo-sized receiver at 6-3, 240, with 4.42 speed. Engram still struggles as a blocker and it might never become a strength of his game. If you want to dock Engram's potential because of Eli Manning's age and foibles, that's perfectly reasonable. And the Giants have a lot of competition in the passing game, needing to find targets for Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard and rookie running back Saquon Barkley. But there's a legitimate chance Engram is a generational talent, and it's also possible new coach Pat Shurmur - who will also call the plays - is a miracle worker on offense. Consider what Shurmur did with Nick Foles in 2013, or with Case Keenum last year. If you're not afraid to spend a primary pick on a tight end, Engram is someone you need to evaluate and consider.

Scores touchdown in finale
TENew York Giants
December 30, 2018
Engram caught five of eight targets for 81 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 36-35 loss to the Cowboys.
ANALYSIS
Engram led the team in catches and receiving yards while tying for second in targets. A large chunk of his production came on a 51-yard catch and run while he also contributed with a six-yard touchdown grab in the third quarter. While Engram got off to an inauspicious start to the season, he finished strong by contributing at least 75 receiving yards in each of his last four games. He'll close out the season with 45 catches for 577 yards and three touchdowns in 11 appearances. The 24-year-old could be one of the biggest winners from a fantasy perspective if the team moves on from aging quarterback Eli Manning in the offseason.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Make no mistake, Engram's pass catching at Mississippi (not his blocking) pushed him into the first round of the NFL draft, with a 4.42 40 time boosting his cause. The Rebels deployed Engram at a number of positions -- tight end, H-back, slot receiver, outside receiver -- and his most common pre-draft comparison was Jordan Reed, an exciting player to be linked with. Even if Engram can get up to speed quickly -- and given all the hats the Giants would like him to wear, that seems like wishful thinking -- he'll have to deal with some Meadowlands gridlock. Odell Beckham Jr. is the key to the team's offense, Brandon Marshall was imported to fill a critical role and Sterling Shepard was useful as a rookie. The Giants wouldn't have selected Engram if they didn't see exciting down-the-road upside, but it's hard to envision a lot coming from him in Year 1.
