Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 7 Rankings
Devonta Freeman Note

Freeman continues to get significant work in this offense. While he hasn't been especially efficient with his opportunity, he's still worth plugging into your lineup as a low-end RB2.

Darius Slayton Note

Slayton was able to finally find the end zone in week six, which is a good thing because otherwise his fantasy production would've been abysmal. Slayton only saw four targets last week in a game that the Giants were winning, but that's not expected to happen much moving forward. Slayton should see his targets bounce back up against Philadelphia, but he might have a tough time producing anything more than low-end WR2 numbers. Start Slayton as a WR3 this week against the Eagles.

Evan Engram Note

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.

Tate's barely involved in this offense and he can be dropped to your waiver wire, if needed.
