New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught nine passes (on 10 targets) for 94 yards against the Washington Football Team on Thursday, Sept. 16.
Huddle Up: Shepard was on the receiving end of almost half of Daniel Jones' 22 completions, easily leading the team in both receptions and yardage. A bit of a forgotten man after the high-profile signing of Kenny Golladay, Shepard has been New York's best receiver by a wide margin through two games. He should continue to offer value as a No. 3 fantasy wideout.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard posted game highs with seven receptions, 113 yards, a touchdown and nine targets in Week 1 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: The Giants offense was fairly moribund, especially in the run game, but Shepard was explosive and their best player. He will look to carry over the momentum into Week 2 on Thursday night in Washington.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard has averaged 8.1 targets per game from QB Daniel Jones over the past two seasons.
Huddle Up: The Giants added Kenny Golladay to the receiving corps this offseason, but Shepard should continue to serve as a safety valve out of the slot for Jones. He can be a serviceable WR4 when healthy.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (rib) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 1, but is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Shepard is coming off one of his best games of the season and has been targeted at least five times in each of his last eight games. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues this week.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (rib) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 31.
Huddle Up: Shepard should be a focal point in the passing game for the Giants this week against the Dallas Cowboys. He can be considered at least a flex option in most fantasy leagues.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (rib) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.
Huddle Up: Shepard has been targeted at least six times in all but two games this season and picked up his second touchdown of the season last week. He should see a solid amount of targets this week and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard posted game highs with nine receptions, 77 yards and 12 targets in Week 16 against the Baltimore Ravens and he was able to post a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Shepard really jelled nicely at times with Daniel Jones, but he has needed his quarterback to be healthy and that has been a problem for a good chunk of the season. The Giants finish up with the Cowboys in Week 17.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught four passes (on seven targets) for 51 yards against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, Dec. 20.
Huddle Up: Shepard has been a high-volume, low-average target for most of 2020, averaging less than 10 yards per catch on the season. He's worked downfield a little more often lately, but it has come at the expense of usage with Shepard managing just eight receptions in the past three games combined. Minus a higher volume Shepard has very limited appeal, even in PPR formats.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard lead the team with 3.1 average yards of separation, according to NFL NextGen stats, with fellow WRs Darius Slayton and Golden Tate each averaging 2.2 yards.
Huddle Up: Shepard has missed four games this season, but he is still third on the team with 416 yards and a touchdown, and he has 118 yards after contact, too. There aren't a lot of solid fantasy options in the New York pass game at the moment, but Shepard is a decent WR4 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues of 12 or more teams with lesser appeal in standard play.
Posted: 12/14/2020 1:24 am GMT
New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard posted three receptions for 35 yards on five targets in Week 14 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Shepard had six or more grabs in a five-game stretch from Oct. 22 to Nov. 29, but he has just four grabs for 57 yards and no scores on 11 targets in the past two outings. He has disappeared for fantasy owners in PPR leagues when it matters most. The Giants host the Browns in Week 15.
