New York Giants WR Russell Shepard (ankle) did not practice Friday, Dec. 21 and he is ruled out for Week 16 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Shepard and Odell Beckham Jr. are both ruled out, so the top receiver for the Giants will be Sterling Shepard with Corey Coleman, Bennie Fowler and Jawill Davis rounding out the corps.

Carolina Panthers WR Russell Shepard posted two catches for 53 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 at San Francisco.
Huddle Up: The newcomer from Tampa Bay shook a tackle and dashed for a 40-yard touchdown, the biggest play of the day for the Carolina offense. Not many could foresee that happening with a roster littered with fantasy studs. He is still not a terribly attractive fantasy option heading into Week 2 against Buffalo.

Carolina Panthers WR Russell Shepard consistently got open from the slot this spring and caught everything thrown his way, according to beat writer Joseph Person.
Huddle Up: Monitor his progress in training camp as he could be worth a flyer as a WR5.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Russell Shepard posted five receptions for 77 yards and a touchdown in the Week 7 game against the San Francisco 49ers. He was targeted six times.
Huddle Up: Shepard was the 'next man up', not Adam Humphries, with Vincent Jackson hitting the Reserve/Injured list this week. If you need a bye-week replacement in Week 8 against the Oakland Raiders, Shepard might not be a bad stream option in deeper leagues.
