If Beckham can't play against Cowboys

ny2plano : 9/7/2017 1:29 pm
I would prefer Engram as replacement over King or Lewis.

if you ask me, its looking more and more like OBJ isnt gonna play. i hope they use Engram outside and ellison as the in line TE. i think engram would have some mismatches on the outside as well
you probably see a lot more 2 TE sets  
giants#1 : 9/7/2017 1:32 pm : link
with SS/BM at WR and Engram/Ellison on the field. Or 2 WR/1 TE/1 FB.

When they go 3 WR, you'll probably get King outside with Engram or Ellison as the TE depending on the circumstances.
May even see more Vereen, as well.....  
Simms11 : 9/7/2017 1:38 pm : link
remember we didn't have use of Vereen for most of last year either and so I think they have enough, even without OBJ, but the Oline has to do it's job. Additionally, I think they have to use King to stretch the field and if he's successful in doing that, then that too will open up more opportunities, much like OBJ would do for the O.
Sure

Lets play a rookie out of position in his first game. I'm sure he got lots of reps at wr over the summer.....
Hey  
Giantology : 9/7/2017 1:41 pm : link
it works in Madden
I will be shocked if he practices at all this week.  
AnnapolisMike : 9/7/2017 1:46 pm : link
And shocked if he does not play in the game. He has value as a decoy as well if not 100%
No, Engram's value is as a TE.  
Section331 : 9/7/2017 1:48 pm : link
he is there to create mismatches. My guess is that we will see more of him if Odell doesn't play, but he won't be lining up outside.

I think we  
fireitup77 : 9/7/2017 1:49 pm : link
are going to have a similar situation to Plax when he didn't practice all week and then played on Sunday's. Not because his ankle is that bad but it reduces his chances of getting hurt and missing out on the big payday he is looking at shortly. This is going to go on all year...
this is why you carry capable TE's....  
BillKo : 9/7/2017 2:00 pm : link
and a FB.

Allowing for different formations, for not only in-game strategy but injury as well.
I'd be shocked if OBJ doesn't play Sunday.  
NorwoodWideRight : 9/7/2017 2:04 pm : link
.
OBJ will play  
Bold Ruler : Mod : 9/7/2017 2:05 pm : link
.
I'll be shocked too....  
BillKo : 9/7/2017 2:07 pm : link
even as a decoy.

And if the single him up..........
People really think Beckham isn't going to play?  
Giants in 07 : 9/7/2017 2:18 pm : link
LOL
13 will get in some work during practice tomorrow  
Mr. Bungle : 9/7/2017 2:22 pm : link
and will suit up and play on Sunday night.

It's Dallas  
x meadowlander : 9/7/2017 2:30 pm : link
And it was an ankle sprain, not a tear, not a break.

He's a showboat. No way Beckham doesn't play.

And if he doesn't, that's what backups are for. Engram is going to excel... as a TE.
lol  
Beezer : 9/7/2017 2:33 pm : link
Engram is a tight end.

The others are not.

Stop it?
I'm going to the game.  
FranknWeezer : 9/7/2017 2:38 pm : link
And he's playing.

Anything less won't do.
Even if he's limited you dress him  
Ron Johnson : 9/7/2017 4:08 pm : link
he'll draw double coverage for half the game without even seeing the ball.
Crazy thing  
area junc : 9/7/2017 4:14 pm : link
is, we can still dominate offensively without Odell. Last year wed be FUBAR. Revamped passing game like the recent D. Run the offense through Marshall and dump to Shepard, Engram, Ellison & Vereen as needed.

Marshall signing was literally huge!

It's not crazy to think he misses week 1. The Giants are being weird with this injury like most teams are but there's reason to fear Beckham won't play. Beckham has missed games before.
I dunno  
Bubba : 9/7/2017 4:31 pm : link
prime time game against a major opponent...I think he plays unless trainers shut him down.
Isn't the League Injury Report

How many passes has Marshall caught from Eli in preseason?
Roger Lewis will  
PEEJ : 9/7/2017 7:45 pm : link
catch a TD !!!!

(Then drop one.)
We haven't dominated anyone offensively with him ...  
Bluesbreaker : 9/7/2017 7:47 pm : link
What makes you think we will without him ?
They can roll coverage to the 34 YO Marshal then you have King or Lewis that need to step up but if we can't run the
ball we won't score 20 points .

We havent had Marshall, Engram and Ellison either. Start there.
Gotta love the defeatist attitudes  
area junc : 9/7/2017 7:57 pm : link
Marshall’s 34? No hes 33. And he hasnt caught a pass from Eli so theres no reason for optimism there? Good Lord. Be negative all u want but to invent things to seem even worse? Glad im not in that head
Has nothing to do with a defeatist attitude...

We have no idea what Marshall and Eli can do, because they have done nothing in a game up to now....to think we will be ok with Marshall, and not having OBj, is just as crazy....Eli has not played with all his new toys......he may have a great game with them, but it's more than understandable if he doesn't.....When your whole offense last year was predicated on one guy, who might not play, to think that this offense is just going to click on all cylinders, when it hasn't really played together, is just not realistic....

All that being said, I still think Eli finds a way to do it, but it is going to be a typical Eastern Conference nail biter....
Eli and Marshall are vets  
UConn4523 : 9/7/2017 9:48 pm : link
and Marshall has the size Eli loves. Marshall was productive with a Ryan Fitzpatrick, he will be just fine with Eli. No idea if that's enough to win this game, but Eli to Marshall is the least of our worries if Beckham doesn't play.
It may be for the best if OBJ doesn't play  
Milton : 9/7/2017 10:23 pm : link
I want the Giants to win 35-0 and with OBJ in the lineup it's liable to be 49-0 or 56-0.
