Evan Engram's Consistency Early Means Potential for Upside Late in 2023

Jaguars TE Evan Engram has been one of the most consistent fantasy options at the position through ten weeks of the 2023 season despite glaring issues in Jacksonville’s passing attack. The seventh-year pro has racked up at least seven targets in every game since Week 2 and ranks among the league’s best in target share among tight ends, but is lacking in one critical department that has hamstrung his production from reaching the high-TE1 stratosphere.

He’s still the overall TE8 in total points scored on the year, but there’s untapped upside that’s hard to ignore.

Unfortunately for Engram, he’s suffering from an acute case of Diontae Johnson syndrome. That is, he’s earned the third-most total targets and the fourth-highest target share among all NFL tight ends so far this season, but he has zero touchdowns to show for it. He’s the only tight end inside the top-12 in target share without a score in 2023, but that might not be entirely his fault…

The biggest story for the Jaguars this season has been the struggles of quarterback Trevor Lawrence, who has fallen significantly short of the lofty expectations set ahead of his third campaign. His 9:6 touchdown to interception ratio has left Jaguars pass catchers with little upside to chase in the offense, and Engram has been feeling the effects of the lowered QB play - he has zero end zone targets this year after having five through ten weeks in 2022. With matchups against some of the NFL’s best overall defenses coming up after Week 12 – including games agains the Bengals, Browns, and Ravens – time is running out for Engram to start capitalizing on the volume he’s received.
