New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (toe) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: Darius Slayton is already a great WR3, and he and Evan Engram should see small boosts in potential targets.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (toe) is believed to be dealing with turf toe and expected to miss 'some time,' according to a source via NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Week 2 marked the first time in Daniel Jones' pro career that he had Saquon Barkley, Shepard, Golden Tate, Darius Slayton and Evan Engram all available at the same time, but it was short-lived and obviously won't happen again in 2020 with Barkley's ACL injury. Assuming Shepard misses at least a couple of games, Slayton and Tate are good bets to flirt with WR3 production, although starting either player will come with limited upside against the San Francisco Giants in Week 3.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (toe) suffered a toe injury during the Week 2 game and is questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should monitor the situation to see if Shepard is able to return. Golden Tate and Darius Slayton would be the main receivers for the Giants if Shepard misses time and both could be starting options for players.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard finished with six catches and 47 yards on six targets in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday, Sept. 14.
Huddle Up: Shepard was overshadowed by Darius Slayton in this one, but he was one of three G-Men to post six receptions. He'll get plenty of looks and remains a decent WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams. The Giants travel to meet the Bears in Week 2.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard is entering the 2020 season as the longest-tenured Giant, and said Friday, Aug. 7, in a Zoom media conference call that 'I might have to shake the 'young' Shep.' He added that he plans to set a 'good example' for his younger teammates.
Huddle Up: Shephard, still only 27, has caught at least 57 passes in all four seasons in N.Y., including 57 in 10 games last season. He's a WR4 with upside, particularly in PPR leagues.

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.
