A look at some key fantasy football questions going into Week 11:
WHICH UNDER-THE-RADAR PLAYERS HAVE THE BEST CHANCE FOR A BIG GAME THIS WEEK?
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Evan Engram understands that he has all the tools to be a top tight end in the NFL.
The New York Giants' second-year player, the team's first-round selection in 2017, has the size, speed and the drive to be a star.
There's only one problem. Engram has a propensity of dropping passes, especially in clutch situations.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New York Giants linebacker and top pass rusher Olivier Vernon is active for the first time this season.
Vernon missed the first five games with a high ankle sprain, but he is expected to see action Thursday night against the Philadelphia Eagles.
New York will be without its top two tight ends. Evan Engram is going to miss his third straight game with a sprained knee. Rhett Ellison is out with a foot injury.
Placekicker Aldrick Rosas is active despite quad problem.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Rhett Ellison is never going to step into the New York Giants' lineup at tight end and make people forget Evan Engram.
The 29-year-old Ellison is an old-time tight end. He's tough. He's physical. He catches the ball, runs hard and blocks as well.
Engram is the more modern version of a tight end. The 23-year old can run like a receiver, break a game open with a catch and help out a little with his blocking, which is not his strongest suit.
NEW YORK GIANTS (3-13)
New faces: Coach Pat Shurmur, GM Dave Gettleman, RB Saquon Barkley, T Nate Solder, LB Alec Ogletree, LB Kareem Martin, G Will Hernandez, G Patrick Omameh, DL B.J. Hill, P Riley Dixon, LB Connor Barwin, DL Josh Mauro, S Curtis Riley, S Michael Thomas, WR Cody Latimer, WR Russell Shepard, LB Lorenzo Carter, QB Kyle Lauletta, RB Jonathan Stewart, DT A.J. Francis.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — New York Giants starting tight end Evan Engram was forced to leave Friday's preseason game against the Jets with a concussion.
Engram was hurt with 5:21 left in the second quarter when he was sandwiched by linebackers Darron Lee and Avery Williamson after catching a 6-yard pass at the Jets 24. The ball came loose at the end of the play and was ruled a fumble, but the call was overturned after a video review.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — There is no doubt the New York Giants have the talent at the skill positions to be a success on offense.
It starts with two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning at quarterback and extends to three-time Pro Bowl receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and No. 2 overall draft pick Saquon Barkley at halfback. Sprinkle in receiver Sterling Shepard and second-year tight end Evan Engram and there is plenty of explosiveness for new coach Pat Shurmur's squad to put up some points.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The forgotten member of last year's deep tight end class makes his NFL debut Saturday night, and Jake Butt is fired up to show he's just as good as O.J. Howard, Evan Engram and David Njoku.
A collective groan howled across the fantasy football world upon news of Chargers tight end Hunter Henry's torn knee ligament on the first day of organized team activities.
Henry had become the cool kid in the tight end class as the departure of Antonio Gates opened the door for Henry to emerge as a top 5 TE with the upside to rival New England's Rob Gronkowski, Travis Kelce of the Chiefs and Philadelphia's Zach Ertz.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Eli Manning is going to be without his top two receivers for the New York Giants' regular-season finale against the Washington Redskins.
Interim coach Steve Spagnulo said Friday that rookie tight end Evan Engram and wide receiver Sterling Shepard will not play on Sunday.
Engram, who leads the team with receptions (64) and TD catches (6), has a rib injury. Shepard, who leads the team with 731 yards receiving, has a neck injury.
NEW YORK (AP) — Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch was fined $24,309 by the NFL on Friday for yelling at a game official last Sunday against Dallas.
At the end of the Cowboys' 20-17 victory, Oakland quarterback Derek Carr fumbled the ball out of the end zone while trying to dive for a touchdown. The play was ruled a touchback. An angry Lynch shouted at a sideline official and needed to be restrained by teammates.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — With all the injuries to the New York Giants' receivers, rookie tight end Evan Engram has emerged as the go-to guy for Eli Manning.
The first-round draft pick has caught 11 passes for 142 yards and two touchdowns in the past two games. He also has been the only receiver to get open on a consistent basis since Odell Beckham Jr., Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard sustained ankle injuries in a loss to the Chargers on Oct. 8.
If you were watching NFL games last weekend — and for much of the season — and didn't notice Zach Ertz and Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis and Rob Gronkowski, well, you probably weren't watching very carefully.
Tight end, not too long ago almost an afterthought for many teams, has become a critical spoke in the offensive wheel.
NEW YORK (AP) — New York Jets cornerback Buster Skrine has been fined $24,309 by the NFL for a helmet hit last week at Oakland.
Skrine was called for unnecessary roughness for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Raiders running back DeAndre Washington in the Jets' 42-20 loss.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Middle linebacker B.J. Goodson and right tackle Bobby Hart are going to miss the New York Giants game Sunday against the Eagles in Philadelphia.
Goodson is out for the second straight game with a shin injury. Hart sprained his right ankle in the opener against Dallas. He started against Detroit but re-injured it.
Coach Ben McAdoo said Friday that backup linebacker J.T. Thomas also is out with a groin injury.
NEW YORK GIANTS (11-6)
New faces: WR Brandon Marshall, TE Evan Engram, DT Dalvin Tomlinson, PK Aldrick Rosas, QB Geno Smith, OL D.J. Fluker, TE Rhett Ellison.
Key losses: DT Jonathan Hankins, RT Marshall Newhouse, PK Robbie Gould.
Strengths: This is going to be one of best defenses in league, with S Landon Collins, DEs Olivier Vernon and Jason Pierre-Paul, and CB Janoris Jenkins looking very good in camp. QB Eli Manning has more options than Odell Beckham Jr. to target.
Drama in Dallas has opened up things in one of the NFL's tougher divisions.
No team has repeated in the NFC East since the Philadelphia Eagles won four straight titles from 2001-04. The Cowboys are looking to follow a 13-3 season with another division crown, but Ezekiel Elliott's suspension doesn't help their chances.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Coming off an 11-5 regular season and their first trip to the playoffs since winning the Super Bowl in February 2012, there is a sense of optimism and big expectations for the New York Giants.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants have signed first-round draft pick Evan Engram, the speedy tight end who coaches believe will be a tough matchup for opposing defenses.
The Giants announced the signing on Thursday, shortly after the team finished a mandatory three-day minicamp. The Mississippi product is the last of the team's six draft picks to sign.
The 23rd pick overall, Engram got a four-year deal that will pay him just under $11 million.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — In any other year, the New York Giants' decision to take a speedy tight end Evan Engram in the first round and a potential starting defensive tackle Dalvin Tomlinson in the second round would be the story of the NFL draft for them.
Those are two players expected to contribute right away.
But not this year. The story is a player who is not expected to make his mark in 2017, or maybe even 2018.

CLARKSDALE, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi tight end Evan Engram won the Conerly Trophy on Tuesday night.
The 6-foot-3, 235-pound senior joins a group of winners that include current and former NFL stars like Dak Prescott, Eli Manning, Patrick Willis and Deuce McAllister. The Conerly, which is sponsored by C Spire Wireless, has been given annually to Mississippi's top college football player since 1996.
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi tight end Evan Engram, Mississippi State receiver Fred Ross and Southern Miss running back Ito Smith are among the 10 finalists for this year's C Spire Conerly Trophy, which honors the best college football player in Mississippi.
Engram and Ross have been among the Southeastern Conference's top receivers this season. Engram has caught 65 passes for 926 yards and eight touchdowns while Ross has caught 67 passes for 835 yards and 11 touchdowns.
OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi has already played three nationally ranked teams — Florida State, Alabama and Georgia — during a difficult September that has been a huge test for the Rebels.
This weekend's matchup against the Memphis Tigers might seem a little boring by comparison.
