Evan Engram

You probably chased the points as Engram had 23.20 points in Week 13 and 32.50 points in Week 14. But Jacksonville was an offensive flop across the boards against a very difficult Baltimore defense. Engram's 6.80 points was a disappointment, but he did have six targets and four catches. The volume was still there.

A much better matchup is on the slate for Engram next week. Tampa Bay gives up the fifth most points to tight ends, the fifth most yards, and the fifth most receptions. It feels like Engram will bounce back next week. This week was a Blip.

Ezekiel Elliott

Elliott was a popular play this week after getting the starting role with Rhamondre Stevenson out for another game. Fantasy Manager were maybe too nostalgic in hopes of the Ezekiel Elliott of yore, as he rushed 11 times for 25 yards. Five receptions was very nice, and was most of his 9.60 points, but it just didn't produce many yards or touchdowns.

The Patriots get Denver next week, who give up the second most points to running backs. David Montgomery and Jahmyr Gibbs ran all over Denver to the tune of 185 yards and Gibbs had two touchdowns. If Stevenson is back, Bench Elliott; if Elliott gets the start, Play him.
