We heard rumors that the Giants were looking to trade Engram, though I wasn't ever certain that would be the case. As it turns out, he's their guy. The Giants don't have a prototypical No. 1 wide receiver who'll steal 140-plus targets, so Engram should be right back in the middling TE1 conversation this year.While it's easy to fall in love with the way Higbee ended the season, we mustn't forget that it's a very small sample size. He finished with 522 yards and two touchdowns over the final five games while seeing a massive 56 targets. He and Gerald Everett COMBINED for 85 targets the entire 2018 season. Injuries certainly helped Higbee get more targets as the year went on, but are we certain it'll continue in 2020? If you don't have to spend a pick in the top five or six rounds to get him, it's worth finding out.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Engram is extremely talented, has one of the best rookie tight end seasons on his ledger, and is jut 25 years old. But despite all that, there are several strikes against him from a fantasy perspective. Not only has he missed 13 games the last two seasons, but he's also going to be sharing targets with Saquon Barkley, Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate, and Darius Slayton. He's a starting tight end for any fantasy team, but his star doesn't burn quite as bright this draft season as in previous years.Higbee had one of the most unexpected and dominant short-term breakouts in recent memory last season. Over the final five games, he averaged 8.6 receptions and 104 yard per contest after being essentially a fantasy afterthought for his entire career prior. There are questions about heading into the season, including whether the Rams will continue running more of the 12 personnel they ran late in the year and the impact of a healthy Gerald Everett. But, there just aren't many tight ends who are even capable of doing what Higbee did at the end of last year, meaning he needs to be viewed as a mid-tier TE1, albeit with a bit of a skeptical eye.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Higbee had the best receiving stretch of any TE ever over the last 5 weeks of 2019. THE BEST EVER. That does not happen by accident. The Rams started using 12 personnel more at the back end of the season and Higbee was one of two players (Woods) to play nearly every snap. Let others laugh at the Higbee pick while you reap the benefits.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
While Engram is incredibly talented and we've seen him finish in the top-5 at the position before, there's a very narrow path for him to return value on his ADP right now. There are a ton of mouths to feed in this offense and Engram's had trouble staying on the field the past couple of seasons. The targets simply may not be there for Engram and he's currently being drafted at his ceiling. I personally recommend looking elsewhere at the tight end position.Higbee was a fantastic waiver wire find at the end of last season and he asserted himself into the conversation as one of fantasy football's top tight ends. However, the majority is still skeptical of the limited sample size and that's reflected in his ADP. If you prefer to wait on tight end, Higbee's a great option to add to your roster. This offense should remain heavy in 12 personnel and this should still be a heavy passing volume team. Everything lines up for Higbee to have a great season again in 2020.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Evan Engram is an excellent football player, when he plays. That's always the challenge with Engram, can he stay fit and should you wait through the inevitable games off. Engram started the season off like a house on fire before knee and foot injuries hobbled him and eventually knocked him out for the rest of the season. He remains a super upside play and far better value than guys like Andrews, Waller and Ertz who go 3-4 rounds earlier.Tyler Higbee is the definition of an upside pick. The Rams have clearly decided to move towards using their tight ends as receivers and all the signs (Cooks leaving, massive TE contracts) point to a lot of 12 plays in 2020. There have been question marks over whether Higbee is the guy or whether the Rams might use a lot more of Everett. That's a fair concern but I think their actions show they believe in Higbee. They've given him an enormous contract while Everett hasn't been re-signed and the Rams also drafted Brycen Hopkins as a possible TE2 replacement. I'm going to follow the money and gamble on Higbee continuing his target-heavy role alongside Woods and Kupp now that the Rams lack a true receiving back. Higbee is super value in the 7th round.
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
Moving him up slightly. Upside too much to ignore, especially with how much Jason Garrett used Witten while in Dallas. 
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Engram was only healthy for eight weeks last year, and has a history of frequently being injured, but when he plays he is consistently in the top6 TE's.Higbee had what could be the best 5 game stretch any TE has ever had to end 2019, which is why just about everyone has him in their top 10 TE's. He definitely benefited from injured teammates and from facing Arizona in two of those games. I expect the Rams to use more two-TE sets, but let's not expect him to see 11+ targets per game. He also failed to achieve 50 yards in 56 of his first 58 games.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
 156 targets went to the TE position this year. In McVays first 2 seasons: 2017 - 88, 2018 - 84
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Engram missed 8 games in 2019 and finished with 474 yards and 3 touchdowns. He has TE1 upside playing with QB Daniel Jones, but he also has a lot of risk due to a lack of durability.Higbee emerged as the featured tight end in this offense with 734 yards from scrimmage and 3 touchdowns. QB Jared Goff makes Higbee's value volatile, but he should be a fantasy TE1 in 2020.
