Is anyone picking these guys up?  Anyone from Seattle have insight on their actual value at this point?

Engram is supposed to be ready to go after the bye week. I have not
heard anything new on Branch, but they were hoping to have him back
around the same time, but the last I heard was he was not as far along
as Engram and it may be longer for him.

everywhere i look, branch is starting this week with engram as the slot receiver. i have engram in my PPR lineup as a bye week filler, and branch in a non-PPR lineup, also as a bye week filler.
It all works... in theory.

I like Engram in the PPR league. I also picked him up. They are both starting this week. At least thats what I read.

Their Coach said today that they will only get half of the snaps they normally get. I would look for a better option. They might get back to full duty next week. Plus, the Giants have a very good pass defense.

No, don't live in Seattle. But I definitely picked up Engram two weeks ago. He is Hass's boy, and he gets a lot of targets in that offense. I read somewhere the other day that last season Engram totaled at least 7 or so catches a game. For PPR purposes that is gold. Time will tell to see how fast he gets back into football form, but regardless he and branch will be universally owned after sunday. I would grab Engram quick. Not to mention, his injury is his shoulder, Branch's knee injury could linger...
