Evan Engram Week 8 Outlook - Buccaneers at Giants

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Thu, Oct 29th 2020, 9:38am EDT

You can't say the Giants haven't been trying to get him the ball, as he's averaging 6.3 targets per game, and they've even given him multiple carries in two of their last three games. He's totaled at least 9.5 PPR points in 4-of-7 games, which is a bit more stable than most realize, though he's yet to score more than 12.5 PPR points, so the ceiling has been non-existent. The Bucs have been similar to him, honestly. They've allowed the 11th-fewest fantasy points to tight ends, giving up 6.81 yards per target (22nd), a 61.7 percent completion-rate (27th), and a touchdown every 15.7 targets (18th). So, they're a below-average matchup, though there have been five tight ends who've finished as top-15 options against them (Darren Waller was the only one who finished better than TE9). With the lack of run game, we should expect another game of six-plus targets for Engram, which keeps him in the high-end TE2 conversation.
