  Giants | Sterling Shepard popular with QB    Sat Jul 3, 10:25 PM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard has averaged 8.1 targets per game from QB Daniel Jones over the past two seasons.

Footballguys view: Shepard is not a no.1 wide receiver, even though the Giants have miscast him as such in years past. With the addition of Kenny Golladay, we'll see Shepard work against softer coverage as their no.2 receiver. The talent and upside is there with Shepard but he needs to stay healthy in order to play up to his potential. He's a deep flex WR5/WR6 for Fantasy GMs, just like he has been over the last couple of seasons.

  Giants | NYG caps regular season with a victory    Sun Jan 3, 05:54 PM

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones completed 17-of-25 passes for 229 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Week 17 against the Dallas Cowboys. RB Wayne Gallman rushed 11 times for 65 yards, while WR Sterling Shepard had eight receptions for a game-high 112 yards with a touchdown, and he ran twice for 24 yards and a score. WR Dante Pettis added two receptions for 43 yards and a touchdown, while WR Darius Slayton closed the regular season with two catches and 22 yards on four targets. TE Evan Engram was also targeted four times, ending up with two catches and 17 yards. LB Blake Martinez ended up with 11 total stops, a sack, a tackle for loss and a quarterback hit, and DE Leonard Williams had three sacks.

Footballguys view: Jones looked sharp and healthy in this one and the Giants offense did enough combined with a heroic performance by the defense. Now the Giants wait to see if Philadelphia can beat Washington and punch their ticket into the playoffs. The Giants would host the Buccaneers.

Footballguys view: Reports indicate that there was no re-aggravation of his toe injury last week against the Eagles. The Giants are being cautious with Shepard this week as they prepare for a Monday night game against the Buccaneers. Fantasy GMs should consider Shepard a WR3/flex option in Week 8.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard had six receptions, 59 yards and a touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, Oct. 22. Shepard was targeted eight times.

Footballguys view: Shepard should be added in all formats if he wasn't already. Daniel Jones is obviously most comfortable throwing to him in the short and intermediate range and should be targeted frequently against the Bucs next week.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (toe) is unlikely to return this week, according to The Athletic's Dan Duggan, who wrote that a return could be 'rule[d] out this week' before suggesting Shepard might play in Week 7 against the Eagles -- a game that takes place on Thursday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Shepard should become the most reliable short range target for Daniel Jones as soon as he is back. In deep PPR leagues go ahead and add Shepard now before news of his imminent return becomes more widespread.

Footballguys view: Shepard is dealing with turf toe and that will keep him out for some time. With this IR designation, Shepard cannot return for the Giants until Week 6 at the earliest. Darius Slayton, Golden Tate, and Evan Engram will continue as the top targets for the Giants while Shepard is out.

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.

Footballguys view: Turf toe is a painful injury that can linger if not given enough time to heal. The Giants will be super cautious with Shepard as he deals with this. Darius Slayton and Golden Tate will get a majority of the looks at the wide receiver position in Week 3.
