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.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) remains in the NFL's concussion protocol, according to head coach Pat Shurmur. Shepard returned to practice on Monday, Nov. 18.
Huddle Up: Shepard hasn't played since Week 5, and with the G-Men already eyeing 2020 the team is unlikely to push Shepard to return until he's 100 percent. Even if he does play this Sunday, it remains to be seen what his role will be considering what Golden Tate and Darius Slayton have done in his absence.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) returned to practice Monday, Nov. 18.
Huddle Up: Shepard looks to be on track to return against the Chicago Bears. It's a rough matchup, though, and he would be little more than a flex candidate after a lengthy absence.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) on Friday, Nov. 8, was ruled out for Week 10 as he continues to recover from his second concussion of the season.
Huddle Up: Shepard has been out since Week 5, and in hindsight, the Giants probably should've placed him on IR. The wide receiver's outlook still remains uncertain, and fantasy GMs should move on if they need the roster spot.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) was seen running and working with team trainers on the side during the team's practice Thursday, Nov. 7.
Huddle Up: This was surprising after head coach Pat Shurmur said Shepard would have "no activity" this week after visiting concussion specialists, but he remains in the protocol and seems certain to miss a fifth straight game Sunday.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) could land on the season-ending Reserve/Injured list. The team is considering the move as he continues to deal with concussion-like symptoms, and teammates are concerned about him resuming his career. He traveled to Pittsburgh on Wednesday, Nov. 6 to meet with a concussion specialist.
Huddle Up: It doesn't sound like Shepard is coming back anytime soon, so if you're a fantasy owners awaiting his return, it might be a good idea to go another way and use that roster spot for someone more readily available.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 6.
Huddle Up: Shepard is back in the concussion protocol and probably will miss more games, so fantasy players should keep him on the bench. Golden Tate is probably the only Giants receiver that should be used in fantasy leagues.

New York WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) is back in the concussion protocol and has been ruled out of the team's Week 9 game.
Huddle Up: Shepard has suffered two concussions this season, so the team will take a cautious approach with him. Fantasy players can monitor the situation to see when Shepard may return. Golden Tate and Evan Engram should be the main options in the passing game and can be starting options, while Darius Slayton could be a flex option in deeper leagues.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) practiced in full Saturday, Nov. 2.
Huddle Up: Sterling should be good to go for Monday night's game against the Dallas Cowboys. QB Daniel Jones has been struggling of late but the return of his best big-play threat should help. Sterling can be used as a WR3/flex option.
