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.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard had one reception (on six targets) for 22 yards against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 13. He also caught a pass for a two-point conversion.
Huddle Up: Shepard's six targets trailed only Evan Engram (eight), but he managed just one catch. It was a major dip in production for Shepard, who had 33 receptions in five games since returning from injury leading into Week 13. You'll want to wait and see if Daniel Jones can return next Sunday against Arizona before slotting Shepard into your lineup as a flex.
