Evan Engram is a Good Value for the Rest of the Season

REST OF SEASON FANTASY VALUE

Evan Engram is one of the most underrated players at tight end. Based on an ownership percentage of 71%, the market considers him to be the #15 tight end. He is projected to be #10 averaging 6.4 FPs per week. Even though his projected rank is better than his ownership based rank there are tight ends projected for more points with the same or lower expectation. Christopher Herndon (27 FP), for example, is a better option owners may want to target. The projections also have Evan Engram as the #10 player in PPR leagues.

PAST FANTASY PERFORMANCE (2017 TO 2018)

Evan Engram has only played in 8 games this season. It is important to note that if he played a full season, at his average, he would be ranked as the #13 TE. In 2017 he was the #5 ranked fantasy TE and averaged 7.3 FP per game.
