With no running game to speak of for the Giants, Engram is essentially being used as an extension of the run game. It looks like he’s earned the trust of Eli and the coaching staff. And it’s easy to see why, the guy is a big time play maker. Last game their was an interesting two play series in which he dropped a pass and then was immediately targeted the next play. It was an important 3rd down and he was absolutely blanketed with a guy on his back. The throw was great and Engram made a strong grab. It’s little things like this that can tell us a lot.
This looks like one of the rare rookie TE cases where a player produces right away in the league. He’s flat out an elite athlete that you could easily mistake for a WR (a very big WR) when you see him play. In one of the most stacked tight end classes in memory EE had more yards than any of the TE’s in 2016. He’s a big time producer as a receiver. Brandon Marshall was expected to be a big weapon for this team opposite OBJ but he’s looking 50% of who he once was at best. This passing game pie is big in NY and Engram is looking like the combo of high floor and TD upside at the tight end position we look for. He can’t really block, so when he’s on the field he’s running routes. In the TE wasteland this year Engram has savior potential, after a 20% ownership increase after his 11 target week four he’s still only 66% owned. If you’re in need at the position he should be owned. He could very well be a consistent force at TE this year.
