It was too predictable.
Of the 14 tight ends selected, only O.J. Howard went off the board before Engram, going to Tampa Bay four selections before the New York Giants procured Engram with the 23rd pick of the first round. The Broncos defense should score in this game.
RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Denver's weak point continues to be against TEs - they've allowed the 6th-most PPR points to the position - and Engram should see a huge usage bump.
"He's a problem", Denver defensive coordinator Joe Woods said on Thursday.
He sweetened his unit by adding an air of mystery.
"I stand anyway", Talib said.
"They're two of our best players, so you want to get them the ball and usually with your best players, to win you've got to get it to them a bunch".
Tedy Bruschi and Herm Edwards think the Broncos will win big at home against a broken Giants team. "He's pretty athletic, he's got good hands, good routes and can use his body well, so there's a lot of things he can do". And then, we always try to save something for the second half. Throw in the fact that NY has lost their last three games by 5 points or less, and it's clear that the spread line for the Giants is a decent option.

The employee then handed over three large boxes, containing roughly 100 iPhone 7 devices worth approximately $58,000 Dollars . Police say a thief posing as a messenger swiped $58,000 worth of iPhones from Apple's ( AAPL ) New York City store.
Given all that, what has coach Ben McAdoo's message been to his team? Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth will be in the booth to call the game. "So we've just got to prepare for everything and we know how risky [Engram] can be". The Broncos give up only 50.8 yards per game on the ground - better than second-place Minnesota's 71.3 yards by 40 percent - and they have yet to allow a rushing touchdown on the season. Engram's longest gain of the year, a 31-yard pickup in Week 1, came from the slot.
A week later against Oakland, the Broncos held the Raiders to minus-30 yards in the third quarter of a 16-10 win.
Denver's offense is benefiting from its defensive unpredictability.
Whereas October has traditionally been observed as Breast Cancer Awareness month in the NFL, the league and the American Cancer Society have partnered this season to create an all-inclusive cancer platform. But the anthem controversy has ballooned into a national debate that was stoked by inflammatory comments from President Donald Trump and has led to meetings between league owners and players about how to temper the flames. Roger Lewis played all last year, played this year. I think they're all for players doing whatever they believe is right, which I respect from them. "The NFLPA, they could probably bring us in, but I doubt the owners want the players' opinions or say-so in it".
On paper, the game sets up to be a beatdown, specifically for the Broncos' defense, to say the least, but if Denver wants to make history, it'll have to be even more than a beatdown. They're agenda is business, continue to make money.
Marshall, who received the 2017 Courage Award from the Harvard Graduate School of Education's Alumni of Color for his stance against social injustice and his community work, said he'll continue standing during the anthem this season because that's what the Broncos made a decision to do as a team.
"I kneeled a year ago".
