TE Evan Engram is expected to make his season debut Sunday vs the #Falcons, per source. Engram missed the first two games with a calf injury. A good chance the #Giants could have all their offensive weapons on the field together forever the first time.— Jordan Raanan (@JordanRaanan) September 26, 2021
Friday update: Evan Engram says he’s had a good week of practice and is ready to return, per Zack Rosenblatt. He will likely be questionable on the injury report, but we’ll see how he is listed later today.
The New York Giants might get their starting tight end back this week after Evan Engram was able to get a limited practice in on Wednesday, per the team’s injury report. Engram has missed the first two games with a calf injury, but getting limited work in on Wednesday is a good start for a possible return.
While he was out Kyle Rudolph took over as the lead tight end, but didn’t do much in the way of fantasy football production. Engram should help out the offense when he returns.
Fantasy football implications
This week the Giants get a great matchup with the Atlanta Falcons who just gave up two touchdowns to Rob Gronkowski and a touchdown in Week 1 to Dallas Goedert. Overall they’ve allowed 12 receptions on 14 targets for 144 yards and three touchdowns to tight ends. If Engram can get a full practice in this week, I’d feel good about starting him in a great matchup.
