2. Evan Engram leads the Giants in receiving
Evan Engram has heard his name circulating in trade rumors all week, as well as the criticism stemming from his critical drop with 2:01 remaining against the Eagles that effectively could have sealed a Giants victory in Philadelphia.
Presuming that Engram isn’t traded before Monday, this could be a career game for Engram who will certainly be looking to bounce back. Likewise, the Giants might even use the game against the Buccaneers to showcase him ahead of Tuesday’s 4 p.m. deadline.
The Buccaneers’ defense has been vulnerable against tight ends this season, allowing 29 receptions on 47 targets for 320 yards and three scores, according to CBS Sports. Tight ends are averaging just over 11 yards per reception against Tampa. Engram enters Monday averaging 8.6 yards per reception, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he winds up leading the Giants in receptions and yards this week.
Maybe something like seven catches for 112 and a touchdown?
