New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard ended up with six receptions for 76 yards and a touchdown in Week 16 against the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: Shepard went for nine grabs and 111 yards last week with Eli Manning under center, and he didn't skip a bet with the quarterback change. He has shown that he can be a decent PPR fantasy option when healthy, and he'll be a decent late-round option in PPR leagues heading into 2020.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard registered nine grabs for 111 yards on 11 targets in Week 15 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: Shepard posted his second 100-yard game of the season, and the nine grabs and 11 targets were a season best. If you started him, congrats. He'll look to keep it going in Washington in Week 16. He had seven catches for 76 yards in the first meeting with the Redskins back on Sept. 29.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard posted four receptions for 28 yards on seven targets in Week 14 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Shepard had a solid catch total, but the yardage left something to be desired. He remains more of a WR5 heading into Week 15 against the lowly Miami Dolphins.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught three passes for 40 yards and one touchdown against the Green Bay Packers in Week 13. He was targeted seven times during the game.
Huddle Up: Shepard has been targeted 16 times in two games since returning from injury but only has 55 yards during that span. He will continue to see plenty of targets in the passing game but may not be more than a flex option in fantasy leagues.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard ended up with five catches for 15 yards on nine targets in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Shepard led the team in targets, but his yardage total was poor. He is only worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues as he is operating as the No. 3 receiver behind Darius Slayton and Golden Tate on a team which isn't exactly an offensive juggernaut. The Giants host the Packers in Week 13.

Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Shepard was expected to return a few weeks ago but suffered a setback and had to miss a few more games. He will see a decent amount of targets this week but may only be a flex option because of the matchup.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) cleared the league's concussion protocol Friday, Nov. 22, and will play in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Shepard hasn't played since Week 5, so owners are advised to see how things go against a tough pass defense before they consider starting him in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers. Prior to going down, the fourth-year pro saw nine targets in three consecutive games, so he could easily be worth starting as a WR3 during the fantasy playoffs if he returns to his previous role and stays healthy. Shepard's return will likely force rookie Darius Slayton back into more of a situational deep-threat role.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) is 'looking good' to play against the Chicago Bears in Week 12, according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Shepard has been out since early October, and while he has the potential to be a WR3, you will probably want to take a wait-and-see approach whenever he makes his return.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 21.
Huddle Up: Shepard still needs to be cleared by doctors to play, so fantasy players should monitor the situation. He would be facing a good Chicago Bears defense if he plays but could still be a flex option in deeper leagues.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) remains in the concussion protocol, but he practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 20. He's expected to be cleared for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Shepard would return to a tough matchup against the Chicago Bears. Darius Slayton has emerged in his absence, but Evan Engram (foot) isn't expected back. Shepard should see enough volume to be a flex candidate.
