    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard is catching everything thrown at him in practice, and he caught two touchdowns in team drills Tuesday, June 13.

    Huddle Up: Shepard will be relegated to the third receiver spot, which limits his fantasy prowess. He's still on the WR5 landscape, though.

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard believes he needs to improve after the catch this year. 'I feel like I could have gotten a lot more [yards after catch] last year,' Shepard said. 'That's something that I looked at on film and I want to get better on.' The second-year receiver believes he's ready for an upgrade in his game. 'You make a big jump from your sophomore year, and then college the same way,' Shepard said. Shepard added that he'll be a lot more comfortable adjusting to the speed of the NFL, running routes and the Giants' system.

    Huddle Up: Shepard may improve, but he'll have Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall to compete with in New York. Shepard figures to be the Giants' primary slot receiver with those two on the outside. Even with the stellar company, Shepard remains a good red-zone threat after catching eight touchdowns his rookie year. As such, WR3 or flex status is ideal for Shepard.

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard finished with seven catches for 61 yards and a touchdown in a 24-19 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, Dec. 22, and he has six touchdowns in his last eight games.

    Huddle Up: With defenses focusing on Odell Beckham Jr., Shepard continues to shine. The rookie is a weekly flex option.

    New York Giants rookie WR Sterling Shepard posted four grabs for 21 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was targeted eight times.

    Huddle Up: Shepard has found the end zone at least once in four of his past five games. He hasn't been racking up a ton of yardage, but he has been a boon to fantasy owners in TD-only leagues especially.

  • Posted: 11/14/2016 9:40pm ET

    New York Giants rookie WR Sterling Shepard posted five receptions for 42 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in the Week 10 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He was targeted seven times.

    Huddle Up: Shepard has emerged as a solid compliment to Odell Beckham Jr. in New York, and he is a decent WR3 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 11 against the Chicago Bears.

  • Posted: 11/6/2016 5:21pm ET

    New York Giants rookie WR Sterling Shepard posted three grabs for a team-high 50 yards and a touchdown in the Week 9 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He was targeted six times.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 10:13am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught five passes for 32 yards against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Shepard was off to a terrific start at the beginning of the season but has been held to 30 yards or less in each of the last four games. He could still be a decent flex option in deeper leagues but could stay on the bench in most standard leagues.

  • Posted: 10/16/2016 4:08pm ET

    New York Giants rookie WR Sterling Shepard hauled in four receptions for 25 yards in the Week 6 game against the Baltimore Ravens. He was targeted eight times.

    Huddle Up: Shepard started the season with 16 grabs for 233 yards and two touchdowns in his first three games, but he has managed just 10 catches for 69 yards and no forays into the end zone over the past three. With rookies, you have growing pains and inconsistency, and Shepard is no different. He remains a solid WR3 in most fantasy leagues, but all the work in the passing game went through Odell Beckham in his one.

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (groin) was limited in practice Monday, Aug. 15, because of a groin injury.

    Huddle Up: Shepard suffered a groin injury in the Giants first preseason game. The injury isnít believed to be serious. Expect Shepard to be limited for a few days. The Giants canít afford to lose him with so many question marks surrounding Victor Cruz. Shepard will start opposite Odell Beckham and offers plenty of fantasy upside this season. He has an ADP of Round 7.

  • Posted: 8/15/2016 8:45am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (groin) participated in individual drills during practice Sunday, Aug. 14.

    Huddle Up: Shepard was dealing with a sore groin after the first preseason game, so the team will be cautious with him. He has been performing well during training camp and could be one of the starting receivers this season. Owners should consider him as a No. 4 receiver in most leagues.

  • Posted: 8/8/2016 8:42pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard is listed as one of the starting wide receivers on the team's first depth chart.

    Huddle Up: This was the plan all along. Shepard will start opposite Odell Beckham with Victor Cruz playing in the slot. Fantasy owners are well aware that Shepard is the No. 2 option in the Giants passing game. He currently has an ADP of Round 7.

  • Posted: 8/5/2016 8:46am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard continues to make "play after play," and doing so while playing with the first team. It's clear he's going to be a big part of the club's offense with his ability to make tough, contested catches.

    Huddle Up: Shepard is a very intriguing sleeper candidate, as Victor Cruz still isn't 100%, while the club has also moved on from Rueben Randle. Thus, Shepard should get plenty of opportunities to succeed in his rookie season and is worth a midround selection. Don't be overzealous, though, and reach for him earlier than his seventh-round ADP in casual leagues.

  • Posted: 8/3/2016 8:30am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard stood out in practice Tuesday, Aug. 2, working with the first-team offense. He did well on offense, but didn't fare so well in the kickoff return drill. "I didn't like his kickoff return drill," head coach Ben McAdoo said. "As a receiver, I think that he played strong (Tuesday)."

    Huddle Up: Shepard appears to be destined for the No. 2 receiver job opposite Odell Beckham Jr., and he could be a fantastic WR3 or flex play in most fantasy leagues. Since he's a rookie, expect some growing pains along the way.
