| Evan Engram underwent foot surgery|
Expects to be ready for spring after Lisfranc repair
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 30, 5:00 pm
|Giants TE Evan Engram's foot surgery involved a LisFranc ligament repair. "It wasn’t a full-blown tear, but it needed some fixing." He expects to make a full recovery and should resume training in the spring. (Newsday - Bob Glauber)|
FFToday's Take: Engram will enter his fourth season with durability being a huge question mark. After logging 15 games as a rookie, he's played in only 19 of 32 possible games in the last two years, including just eight in 2019. Regardless of whom the Giants hire to coach and/or call plays next season, the likelihood is that Engram will remain the top threat in the passing game.
| Daniel Jones takes first team reps|
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 18, 1:00 pm
|Daniel Jones (ankle) a full participant in practice. Took “most” of the first-team reps at practice. Did fine. Coach Pat Shurmur said they’ll see how he does at practice this week before knowing for sure if he’ll start vs. Redskins. #Giants (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Jones is expected to start this week against the Redskins pushing Eli Manning back to the bench. Jones will be missing TE Evan Engram but will have all three of his starting receivers, Golden Tate, Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton.
| Evan Engram placed on IR|
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Dec 17, 1:40 pm
|Evan Engram has been placed on IR among roster moves heading into Week 16. (Giants on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Engram hasn't played since Week 9 due to a mid-foot sprain. The team will move forward with Kaden Smith and Scott Simonson but neither are viable fantasy options. Engram missed five games last season with knee and concussion issues.
| Evan Engram, Ellison limited Thursday|
Foot injury for Engram
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Dec 12, 12:30 pm
|Here is the #Giants injury report: Did not practice: Jenkins (ankle), Zeitler (ankle/wrist)
Limited: Jones (ankle), Rhett Ellison (concussion), Evan Engram (foot)
Full: Golden Tate (foot), Ballentine (concussion) (Matt Lombardo on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: There was speculation last week that Engram would return to action but he ended up being inactive with due to a foot injury. If active, he'll be a worty fantasy play against a sub par Dolphins defense.
| Evan Engram, Daniel Jones ruled out for Week 14|
Foot injury for Engram
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Dec 7, 12:01 pm
|Daniel Jones (ankle) officially ruled out Monday night vs. Eagles. Eli Manning starts.
TEs Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion), CB Corey Ballentine (concussion) also OUT.
This means Giants will still not have played a game w/all top weapons on the field together (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Engram was trending towards playing after getting in some limited practices this week, but will sit out his fourth straight game. Kaden Smith will get the start and be a middling TE2 option.
| Daniel Jones in walking boot with ankle sprain|
Eli Manning likely to start Week 14
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 4, 10:53 am
|Daniel Jones in a boot + has moderate high ankle sprain, per Pat Shurmur. He couldn’t play if Giants had game today. Shurmur compared it to what Saquon Barkley had, slightly less severe. Barkley missed three games. So get ready for the return of Eli Manning on Monday vs Eagles. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: It will be Eli Manning this week against the Eagles. On a positive note for the Eagles offense, it sounds like TE Evan Engram and WR Golden Tate could be back in action. This is a decent matchup for Manning against the Eagles who've given up the 16th most FPts to quarterbacks and the 4th most FPts to wide receivers.
| Tate, Engram, Ellison ruled out for Week 13|
Giants short-handed against the Packers
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 29, 12:01 pm
|OUT for Sunday vs. Packers: WR Golden Tate (concussion), TE Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion), LS Zak DeOssie (back/wrist) and S Jabrill Peppers (back). (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Giants will be short-handed against the Packers this week with Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton and Cody Latimer working as the top three wideouts. Kaden Smith and Scott Simonson will fill the void at TE but neither are viable fantasy options.
| Tate, Engram, Ellison miss practice Wednesday|
Tate suffered a concussion in Week 12
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 27, 12:37 pm
|Rhett Ellison, Evan Engram, Golden Tate and Jabrill Peppers all DID NOT practice. (Matt Lombardo on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Tate is dealing with a concussion suffered last week. He'll be in a race to get cleared before Sunday's game against the Packers. With Engram and Ellison still banged up, Kaden Smith would make another start at tight end.
| Evan Engram, Ellison ruled out for Week 12|
Scott Simonson and Kaden Smith will fill the void at TE
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 22, 12:45 pm
|TEs Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) were officially ruled out for Sunday vs. Bears. Engram said he did some running Friday and felt good. Eyes on next week.
TEs Scott Simonson and Kaden Smith will assume a heavy role this week. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: With Engram out, fantasy owners can look to other options than Simonson and Smith at the tight end position. The Giants are expected to have their top three wide receivers (Golden Tate, Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton) available against the Bears.
| Engram, Ellison miss practice Wednesday|
Unlikely Engram plays in Week 12
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 20, 11:08 am
|TEs Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) not practicing. Would seem to be an upset if Engram's ready for Sunday vs. Bears. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: It's looking like another missed game for Engram who last played in Week 9. If he sits, expect the Giants to lean on their three wide receiver set of Golden Tate, Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard against the Bears.
| Evan Engram expected to miss Week 10|
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 6, 2:31 pm
|Tight end Evan Engram expects to miss Sunday's game against the New York Jets with what the New York Giants are calling a "mid-foot sprain." Engram had his MRI results of the affected left foot sent to specialist Dr. Robert Anderson for a second opinion, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. But Engram said later Wednesday that there is a belief he "dodged a bullet" and it's not the dreaded Lisfranc sprain that would sideline him for an extended period of time. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Engram will miss this week, then the Giants have a bye in Week 11. Hopefully, he'll be able to return in Week 12 against the Bears. Rhett Ellison should see an increase target share but he'll be a fantasy dart throw with a low floor.
