Eugene is many things, but a fighter he isn't. While he has some combat training and capability, in the end his fear tends to make him go to pieces.
However what Eugene is, is a SURVIVOR.
He will avoid combat as much as possible.
He DOES have scientific knowledge, but he is not some expert Doctor that worked on a genome project, nor does he have a cure for the walker plague.
What he DID do with Negan was:
1. Told Negan things that Negan would like to hear.
2. Dazzled Degan and his goons in the beginning with scientific jargon and at the same time, he also baffled them with B.S. such as saying he was on the genome project and weaponizing diseases.
However his idea of pouring molten metal over the walkers at the fences to keep them from rotting away and fusing them to the fence is not a bad idea.
We also see that he can indeed fashion homemade bombs and poison pills.
We also see that he is indeed not naive, as he knew the poison pills were meant for Negan.
Eugene also knew that if he didn't capitulate immediately that Negan would kill him as surely as Negan killed the medical Doctor.
Eugene is a survivor, he wants to live as long as he can.
However once Rick and his army start their attacks, Eugene may be called upon to help come up with some ideas and weapons, remember the Saviors have the guns and Eugene can make bullets.
However once Rick and his army gain the upper hand, Eugene will switch sides. Eugene will go with whomever has the winning hand and right now that is the Saviors.
