Replacing Evan Engram on the Waiver Wire, who is Week-to-Week With an MCL Sprain

The Giants offense showed signs of having a pulse in their Week 3 victory against the Texans, but unfortunately they lost their studly tight end, Evan Engram to a sprained MCL. Luckily for Engram, it looks like he caught a break with the severity of the sprain. A mild MCL sprain typically lasts one-to-two weeks, a moderate sprain is two-to-four weeks and anything worse is likely four-to-six weeks. If you own Engram, you probably don’t have a backup tight end and you’ll need some help. I mean, that’s why you’re here, right? 

Even though Giants backup tight end Rhett Ellison found the end zone in Engram’s absence, the talent isn’t there to band-aid your hole at that position. With the tight end spot hit-or-miss after the very few big names, you’re going to have to stream or hope you get lucky. In this week’s Start, Stash and Stream, our guy RedSocker45 listed off guys such as the Under Armour mannequin, Ben Watson as a possible starting option. Then Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Eagles rookie Dallas Goedert as potential stashes, and Jesse JamesAustin Hooper and Mr. Glass Tyler Eifert as possible streaming options. If you happen to be playing in a league with your grandparents, Jack “The Beanstalk” Doyle is 53% owned. And even though he’s not a tight end, expect Sterling Shepard (56% owned) to benefit most and take a chunk of Engram’s targets from Eli Manning.
