    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught three passes on seven targets for 37 yards in a 34-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: It was Shepard's worst performance since the opener, and he has reached 75 yards in three of the five games this year. Despite the rough night, he has shown he can be a matchup-based WR3.

  • Posted: 10/7/2018 4:08pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard finished with four receptions for 75 yards on seven targets in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Shepard was dealing with a lower back issue this week, but he made it through the game without any apparent setbacks. He'll have a quick turnaround for Week 6 against the Eagles on Thursday night. Treat him as a WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Posted: 10/4/2018 10:59am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (back) returned to practice Thursday, Oct. 4, after having a cyst removed from his back earlier in the week.

    Huddle Up: Shepard's targets, receptions and yards have increased each of the last three weeks, coinciding with the absence of TE Evan Engram, and he's definitely on the flex-start radar this week for the Week 5 contest in Carolina.

  • Posted: 10/3/2018 11:19pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (back) is expected to return to practice on Thursday, Oct. 4. Shepard did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 3, after having a cyst removed from his back.

    Huddle Up: That's good news for Shepard, who posted a 10-77-1 line last Sunday and figures to be heavily involved again this Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. Consider him a solid WR3.

  • Posted: 10/3/2018 12:25pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (back) was absent from practice Wednesday, Oct. 3.

    Huddle Up: Shepard broke out for 10 catches, 77 yards and a touchdown last week, but the Carolina Panthers present a much tougher test. If he actually plays, Shepard sits in WR3 territory.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 8:53pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught all 10 of his targets for 77 yards and a touchdown in a 33-18 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Shepard has turned in back-to-back solid outings, and even as the No. 3 option in the offense behind Odell Beckham Jr. and Saquon Barkley, he is worth considering as a flex option.

  • Posted: 9/28/2018 6:21pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard should be the 'biggest beneficiary' of TE Evan Engram's (knee) absence against the New Orleans Saints in Week 4, according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com.

    Huddle Up: Shepard is coming off his best game of the young season, and he will enter a friendly matchup against a porous New Orleans defense as the clear No. 2 option in the passing attack. Plug him in as a WR3 or flex play.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 2:33pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught six passes for 80 yards and one touchdown against the Houston Texans in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Shepard was coming off a disappointing Week 2 performance but caught six of his seven passes against the Texans. He is the clear No. 2 receiver for the Giants and can be considered a flex option against certain opponents.

  • Posted: 9/14/2018 12:18pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 14, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Shepard is coming off a decent outing in Week 1 and was targeted seven times during that game. He could have some success against the Dallas Cowboys this week and has a chance to be a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 9/13/2018 9:28am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (back) should be a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 11.

    Huddle Up: Shepard was limited yesterday, so he'll be on the gridiron this weekend. As was the case in the offseason, Shepard owns a WR3 valuation at this juncture.

  • Posted: 9/12/2018 1:07pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (back) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 12.

    Huddle Up: As long as Shepard stays on the practice field he has a better than good chance of suiting up for Week 2. Shepard is used to flying under the radar in Odell Beckham's shadow, but he's comfortably in WR3 territory after a seven-target opening week.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 2:59pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught five passes for 48 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Shepard had a decent outing against a tough Jaguars defense and probably will continue to be the third option in the Giants passing game. He could be a flex option in some leagues next week against the Dallas Cowboys.

  • Posted: 8/24/2018 8:40pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught all seven of his targets for 78 yards in a 22-16 preseason win over the New York Jets Friday, Aug. 24.

    Huddle Up: Shepard won't monopolize the targets when Odell Beckham Jr. is on the field, but he has WR3 potential as the No. 2 target in the passing game.

  • Posted: 5/31/2018 6:47pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard said he has been 'doing a lot on the outside' during OTAs.

    Huddle Up: Shepard managed 731 yards in 11 games last year, and spending more time lining up outside could open up more chances for big plays. If he and Odell Beckham Jr. stay healthy, Shepard should be a serviceable WR3 in an improved Giants offense.

  • Posted: 5/31/2018 8:20am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard has played as an outside receiver significantly more in new head coach Pat Shurmur's offense.

    Huddle Up: Shepard was used in the slot more often, but he looks poised to start opposite of Odell Beckham Jr. Shepard has WR4 ability and could come at a WR5 price.

  • Posted: 12/28/2017 12:42pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (neck) missed practice Thursday, Dec. 28.

    Huddle Up: Look for the Giants to hold out Shepard in what will be a meaningless game. Shepard's 2017 fantasy value saw an influx with Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall sidelined, but he'll be more of a WR3 with those two healthy next year.

  • Posted: 12/27/2017 1:29pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (neck) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 27.

    Huddle Up: As is the case with Evan Engram, resting Shepard this week would seem to be the appropriate move so as not to risk aggravating Shepard's neck. Even if he plays, Shepard could be trailed by Josh Norman, which would limit his upside.

  • Posted: 12/25/2017 5:34am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (neck) left the Week 16 game with a neck injury.

    Huddle Up: Shepard has been a bright spot the last two weeks combining for 16 catches for 184 yards and a touchdown in the last two weeks. He'd be a WR3 option against the Washington Redskins if he's able to go in the season finale.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 8:53pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard finished with five grabs for 45 yards on eight targets in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals.

    Huddle Up: Shepard struggled with injuries down the stretch, but he showed he can be a legitimate fantasy option when he is completely healthy.

  • Posted: 12/17/2017 7:29pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught 11 passes on 16 targets for 139 yards and a touchdown in a 34-29 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Shepard is the de facto No. 1 receiver for Eli Manning. He will deliver the occasional big performance, but he is a boom-or-bust WR3 overall.

  • Posted: 12/15/2017 1:57pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) was listed as a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 15, but he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 15 game with the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Shepard would have been listed as probable back in the day, or in other words he is ready for Week 15. Start him as you normally would.

  • Posted: 12/14/2017 10:53am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Quizzically, Shepard only saw three targets last week in Eli Manning's return. Part of that could have been due to Shepard not being 100%, but has easily been the Giants' best wide receiver since Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall have been out. It's a risk to start him in the fantasy playoffs, but if you have to do so then it should be as a flex.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 5:39pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) finished with two receptions for 16 yards and three targets in Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Shepard was back, and so was Eli Manning, but Shepard looked awfully sluggish. It was Roger Lewis stepping up with 11 targets and seven receptions. Shepard has the ability to be the No. 1 receiver until Odell Beckham Jr. returns next season, but he has had trouble staying healthy lately.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 2:03pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught two passes for 16 yards against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Shepard was not targeted much this week but continues to be the No. 1 receiver for the Giants. He will have a tough matchup in Week 15 but could be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 8:52am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) is active for Week 14's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Shepard was listed as questionable on the injury report after participating in two practice sessions on a limited basis during the week. He will have Eli Manning under center again but shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a WR3 or flex option in deeper fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 6:22am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) is not expected to play in Week 14's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Shepard was listed as questionable on the injury report and participated in two practice sessions during the week on a limited basis. If he is deactivated for this afternoon's game, TE Evan Engram and WR Roger Lewis are among the players who could see more targets.

  • Posted: 12/8/2017 2:26pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) practiced on a limited basis on Friday, Dec. 8, and he is listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Shepard appears to be trending in the right direction and he has Eli Manning back under center for the G-Men, helping his fantasy appeal. Consider him a WR3 or flex fantasy option if he is active against the 21st-ranked pass defense in the NFL.

  • Posted: 12/7/2017 11:51am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) was upgraded to limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: As long as Shepard doesn't aggravate his hamstring ailment he should be OK to play this weekend. He's an intriguing starter with Eli Manning returning and in a great matchup against the rival Dallas Cowboys. Shepard is comfortably in WR2 territory as the Giants' No. 1 receiver.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 8:18pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (illness) posted three receptions for 56 yards on six targets in Week 13 against the Oakland Raiders in his return from a two-game absence due to migraines.

    Huddle Up: Shepard did OK in is return, as he had to jell with a new quarterback while knocking off the rust after a two-game absence. He is the No. 1 receiver in New York, at least among the wide receivers, and a solid WR3 or flex fantasy option in most leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Posted: 12/1/2017 2:33pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 1, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Shepard is expected to return after missing the last two games because an illness. He will serve as the team's No. 1 receiver but will be working with a new quarterback. He could be a flex option in most leagues, but owners should not expect a big performance.

  • Posted: 11/30/2017 12:32pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (illness) put in a full practice Thursday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: It's exciting for the Giants and fantasy owners to have Shepard back, but at the same time that excitement is stinted because Geno Smith is now starting at quarterback. Starting him as a WR2 might be a little too zealous; WR3 territory is more realistic.

  • Posted: 11/29/2017 3:32pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (illness) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 29.

    Huddle Up: Shepard likely will be able to play this week as long as he does not suffer a setback. He will be working with a new starting quarterback and probably should only be considered a flex option for owners.

  • Posted: 11/20/2017 1:42pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (illness) was absent from practice Monday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: Unfortunately for Shepard he has just three more days to be ready for Thursday night's contest after missing Week 11. His status will need to be monitored, but Shepard has WR2 appeal as the Giants' No. 1 receiving option if he's active.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 8:23am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (migraines) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 11 game.

    Huddle Up: Roger Lewis and Tavarres King probably will be the starting receivers with Shepard out, but Evan Engram is the only Giants pass catcher that should be in fantasy lineups this week.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 7:11am ET

    Updating previous reports, New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (migraines) was placed on the Week 11 injury report because he is dealing with migraines, according to a source. He is expected to be a game-time decision.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to determine his status for the game. He is coming off an outstanding Week 10 performance and likely would receive most of the targets if he plays against the Kansas City Chiefs. He can be considered a No. 3 fantasy receiver if he plays.

  • Posted: 11/18/2017 8:50pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (illness) is unlikely to play against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 11, but he will see how he feels in warmups before a final decision is made, according to a league source.

    Huddle Up: Shepard would be a must-start option if he is able to suit up, but if he sits, it should only further boost Evan Engram's status as a TE1.

  • Posted: 11/18/2017 9:37am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (illness) was a late addition to the team's Week 11 injury report with an illness and has been listed as questionable to play versus the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Illnesses very rarely keep NFL players from playing on Sunday, but this disclosure may be a reason to sit him in fantasy if trying to decide between two similar options. With that said, Shepard has a very favorable matchup and should still start in most leagues assuming he is not too limited.

  • Posted: 11/12/2017 7:42pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard posted career highs with 11 receptions and 142 yards in Week 10 against the San Francisco 49ers. He was targeted 13 times.

    Huddle Up: Now that Shepard is healthy he is the de facto No. 1 wideout for Big Blue with Odell Beckham done for the season and Brandon Marshall also on the shelf. It was his third-career 100-yard game. He remains a solid WR2 in most fantasy leagues, especially PPR formats.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 2:05pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught five passes for 70 yards against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Shepard returned after missing the last few games and had a solid outing as the new No. 1 receiver for the Giants. He should continue to receive a solid amount of targets moving forward and can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 11/3/2017 3:38pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 3, and is not on the injury report for Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Shepard will be the team's top receiver this week because of the injuries the team has suffered at the position. He will be facing a solid Los Angeles Rams defense but could still be at least a flex option for owners because of the number of targets he should see this week.

  • Posted: 11/2/2017 10:53am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 2.

    Huddle Up: This essentially assures that Shepard will return to the field this weekend. Unfortunately, he returns to face one of the better pass defenses in the NFL in the Los Angeles Rams, who have only yielded three touchdowns to the position on the season. If you're desperate, Shepard can be started as a flex, but it's advisable to wait for him to shake the rust off, especially considering the matchup.

  • Posted: 11/1/2017 11:27pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) is fully expected to play in Week 9 against the Los Angeles Rams, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan.

    Huddle Up: Shepard's return would be a nice boost for the Giants passing game so keep an eye on his status leading up to kickoff to make sure there are no setbacks. If he's good to go, Shepard he could be an intriguing flex option.

  • Posted: 11/1/2017 12:50pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 1.

    Huddle Up: The Giants desperately need Shepard to return to their ravaged receiving corps. When Shepard does return, he and tight end Evan Engram will realistically be the only fantasy relevant pass-catchers on the Giants' offense. If Shepard is active this week then he is merely a flex consideration after such a long hiatus; he will not have played in nearly a month.

  • Posted: 10/24/2017 10:23am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) told reporters Tuesday, Oct. 24, that he'll be ready to play when the team returns to action in Week 9 versus the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: It's not an ideal first matchup for Shepard, but he is extremely likely to be a target hog going forward following season-ending injuries to Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall. He'll team with Evan Engram to give Eli Manning a fighting chance to move the team through the air, but Manning's mediocre play figures to cap Shepard's ceiling as a fantasy WR3 most weeks.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 5:23am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) is expected to play in Week 7's game against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Shepard is expected to be the team's No. 1 receiver this afternoon but there is some risk involved with using him in fantasy lineups, given the matchup and the possibility that he could see limited snaps. View him as a desperation bye-week filler for this afternoon's contest.
