Good Morning, New York Giants Fans!

While New York Giants rookie passer Daniel Jones has been the talk of the town after a 336-yard, four score performance in his first NFL debut, most are overlooking out fantastic his tight end has been.

After years of hoping Evan Engram would blossom into a premier pass-catching tight end, his time has finally come, and the departure of Odell Beckham Jr. has aided that.

Through three games this season, Engram has tallied 277 yards and two scores, already cutting his 2018 totals in half. Last week, he helped the offense with 113 yards and a touchdown — his 75-yard catch and run sparked a change in momentum for the Giants in the second half.

With Cody Latimer missing time against the Buccaneers and Golden Tate missing the first four games of the season, Engram has been stellar in his third season as a professional. His numbers post-Beckham have been astronomically better, as he nearly doubled his production without the Giants top wideout in 2018.

Engram is not only playing at his peak performance, but he’s doing it at the perfect time with Jones taking over at the helm for Big Blue. He will continue to be an essential target for the new quarterback and act as a security blanket when pressure closes in on the pocket.
