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.One of the more talented tight ends in the league, but also someone who is going to play second fiddle to Rob Gronkowski. The Bucs have said they'll be running a lot more 2TE sets, but it remains to be seen. With the other receiving options they have ahead of Howard, it's tough to see a path to consistent production. If Gronkowski were to miss time, Howard would jump into the TE1 conversation.
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.There are few players who have seen such a disconnect between their perceived talent and their fantasy value as Howard. Bruce Arians' system has never been friendly to tight ends, and even if it were, Howard now has to contend with Rob Gronkowski and not just Cameron Brate at the position. Howard has the skill to be an impact tight end, but absent an injury to Gronkowski, there's just no path for him this year. Hold onto him in dynasty formats, but ignore him for redraft purposes.
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.Howard's now playing second-fiddle to Gronkowski in Tampa Bay, but they both should still be on the field quite a bit. Howard's unlikely to be anything more than a streaming candidate in potential shootouts at the tight end position though with the limited opportunity.
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.Looking back, it's hilarious to think O.J. Howard was drafted as a top 5 TE last season. He's now a 25-year-old, injury-prone tight end stuck behind a future hall of famer and in three seasons he's still yet to corral more than 34 receptions. He'll need a Gronk injury and a major change in game plan to become a strong fantasy option, but the upside exists in very deep leagues.
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. 
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.
