Fantasy Injury News: The latest news about Evan Engram and Odell Beckham Jr. that affect fantasy football rankings

Odell Beckham Jr. (knee), who was absent from Week 1, was somewhat surprising, as Evan Engram (calf), had been inactive for some time leading up to New York. Hopefully you were prepared for the life without OBJ. But if not, be sure to work this week’s waiver wire. Engram wasn’t really a problem if he was on your waiver wire or bench, but it could have been causing you some problems if your league has tight ends. We’ll be updating fantasy injury news with the most recent information on Engram’s week 2 prospects. If they miss any more games, you can target them.

Odell. Beckham Jr. injury Update

Beckham was unable to play in the Browns’ matchup against the Chiefs Week 1, as his knee wasn’t feeling ready after he had gone through warmups. The Browns will be cautious in dealing with Beckham, who tore his ACL last season. They expect to make the playoffs so Beckham is playing long games. They host a Texans team that beat the Jaguars in their season opener. Everyone still believes the Texans will be among the worst in the league, so maybe Beckham gets another week off from the Browns. It’s unlikely that we will know until Sunday when the Texans play. If Beckham is on your roster, make sure you plan for his absence.

The top waiver wire picks for Week 2 can help you spot potential Beckham replacements at a WR/flex spot. Jarvis Landy, if he misses the game, is still the best man in the offense. He had 14.4 fantasy points for standard leagues in Week 1. He only saw five targets and almost half his points were on rush touchdowns. He is a flex if OBJ is back.

Beckham is ranked in the same way as when he will play. This week, he is the WOR31 in standard as well as the WOR33 in PPR. His potential is far greater than that of a WR3/flex slot, but this will be his first time back since last year. If the game becomes too much (as it usually does), he’ll be comfortable on the bench at halftime.

Evan Engram injury update

Engram (calf), was not inactive as expected for the Giants’ opener against Denver. His status right now is uncertain due to the Giants playing on a brief week at Washington on Thursday Night Football. Although you probably didn’t depend on him, our waiver wire list can help you find TE streamers. New Orleans Juwan John Johnson is the best guy to sign up for waivers following Week 1.

We don’t currently have any information on Engram’s current status. However, we will keep you posted as soon as we get them.

We like Engram around the TE20 spot in standard and TE19 in PR. It’s better to be safe and choose a streamer who has a great matchup. Kyle Rudolph will be the No. He is now the No. 1 TE. However, it seems like his greatest receiving days are over. In Week 1, he received five targets, and had two catches of eight yards. Although it was just a single-game sample, it’s clear that he has been inconsistent for some time. If you can afford it, try to fade the team in tight ends.
