In addition to WR Sterling Shepard being out Thursday at New England and RB Saquon Barkley being unlikely to play, there’s also a real chance the Giants will be without TE Evan Engram, who is dealing with a sprained MCL, per source. It’ll be a challenge for Engram to play at NE.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 8, 2019
No Sterling Shepard, no Saquon Barkley and now likely no Evan Engram. Help us Golden Tate, you’re our only hope! But actually, I’m going to have a hard time starting any receiver against this Patriots secondary. Tate is in line for a whole bunch of work so if you’re in a PPR league and own him, might not be the worst play you can make. Also, if you’re in super deep leagues, go add Darius Slayton who’s only owned in 1% of Yahoo leagues and is coming off a game in which he caught four balls for 62 yards and a touchdown.
