Targets haven't been a problem for Engram, though the Giants might start to make them one. He's seen 35 through six weeks, which ranks seventh among tight ends. The problem is that they've netted just 177 scoreless yards, which ranks 21st among tight ends. He's been so inefficient, it's quite remarkable. His teammate, Kaden Smith, ran just four routes last week, but was targeted three times on them and caught every one of them, though they went for just 15 yards. Do they start utilizing him more? The Eagles have allowed a historically-bad 84.1 percent completion-rate to tight ends through six games. Even though those receptions have only gone for 10.2 yards a pop, they've allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to the position. This actually plays right into Engram's role, as he's been targeted just 5.1 yards from the line of scrimmage, which ranks as the fifth-lowest mark in the game, behind only Isaiah Wright, Deebo Samuel, JuJu Smith-Schuster, and Larry Fitzgerald. It seems they're just letting his athleticism go to waste. He's only topped 35 yards once this year and has now seen just five targets over the last two weeks. The Eagles have allowed at least one tight end touchdown in 4-of-6 games, so it's tough to completely pass on him, but he's not even guaranteed the floor that he once had. Consider him a high-end TE2 in a great matchup.

The Eagles are 29th against fantasy tight ends, Engram is at a point where he needs to produce in this matchup or fantasy owners need to move on. He is a boom / bust player playing with Daniel Jones.
