    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.

  • Posted: 10/20/2017 4:58pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) is expected to participate in pregame workouts before the team's Week 7 game to determine if he will be active for the game.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Shepard will be able to play against the Seattle Seahawks. He will be the No. 1 receiver for the Giants when he returns to the lineup. Shepard is a risky option this week because of the injury and the matchup, but he can still be at least a flex option if he plays.

  • Posted: 10/20/2017 8:15am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) is questionable for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Shepard is facing the Legion of Boom this week, and the Giants really scaled back their aerial attack last week in a surprising win over the Denver Broncos. You could see them mimicking that approach this week. Shepard could be limited, and Evan Engram might be the only receiving option to use this week.

  • Posted: 10/19/2017 9:33am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) is practicing Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Shepard has the inglorious matchup against the Seattle Seahawks this week, and he's really only a desperation bye-week filler this week. He'll be a top option in the decimated offense.

  • Posted: 10/18/2017 5:29pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) said he expects to be able to play against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 7 after being able to run some routes and makes some cuts during practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Shepard will be the No. 1 receiver when he returns to the lineup and should receive a solid amount of targets. He will be facing a tough Seattle Seahawks secondary but can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 10/13/2017 7:31am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Roger Lewis will be the top option at receiver in what is a midrange matchup against the Denver Broncos. He's a flex option in Week 6.

  • Posted: 10/12/2017 9:10am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) is out of practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: It's looking like he'll be a no-go in Week 6, but he could surface Friday. Roger Lewis appears to be the team's top receiver against the Denver Broncos. It's hard to slot him in as your flex when there are other established options. However, if you're hurting due to bye weeks, he could see a lot of targets.

  • Posted: 10/10/2017 2:10pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (foot) is wearing a walking boot on his injured left foot to protect the same ankle he sprained in training camp. Shepard is considered day-to-day.

    Huddle Up: New York's wide receiver corps is an absolute disaster. Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall are both out for the season and Shepard is dealing with his own injury. Shepard will be Eli Manning's primary target upon his return and is the only Giants' receiver worth starting when he is healthy.

  • Posted: 10/9/2017 11:06am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) has been diagnosed with a sprained ankle and is day-to-day.

    Huddle Up: The Giants lost four receivers in all during Week 5, including Odell Beckham Jr. likely for the season. Shepard will likely be asked to play the lead role for New York in his absence, especially if Brandon Marshall's ankle injury turns out to be a multi-week injury. As a result of Beckham's absence, Shepard is probably no worse than a WR3 now, although he should be benched against the Denver Broncos in Week 6.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 4:33pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard posted seven receptions for 133 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 at Philadelphia on 10 targets.

    Huddle Up: Shepard came alive after managing just two grabs for 23 yards in Week 2, and a total of 67 yards through two outings. He is in the shadow of Odell Beckham Jr., so his fantasy ceiling is a bit limited. However, the Giants should continue chucking the ball early and often since the run game is doing nothing, and that's great news for Shepard's short-term fantasy appeal.

  • Posted: 9/18/2017 9:16pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard managed just two catches for 23 yards on four targets in Week 2 against the Detroit Lions on Monday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: Shepard and Eli Manning nearly connected on a touchdown in the corner of the end zone in the second half, but the pass was batted away. That was the only thing his fantasy owners could have been remotely excited about, as the Giants offense was just brutal on Monday. Shepard will look for bigger things in Week 3 in Philadelphia, but he is a borderline WR4/5 in most fantasy leagues right now.

  • Posted: 9/10/2017 10:09pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard posted seven catches for 44 yards on eight targets in Week 1 against the Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Shepard was busy with Odell Beckham Jr. inactive, and he was one of Eli Manning's most positive contributors down the field. He is a solid option in most PPR fantasy leagues even when ODB is able to suit up. The Giants host the Lions in Week 2.

  • Posted: 8/13/2017 4:08pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) fully participated in practice Sunday, Aug. 13. Shepard may have a chance to play in the second preseason game.

    Huddle Up: Shepard probably will be the slot receiver for the Giants this season and should receive plenty of playing time this season. He recorded 683 yards and eight touchdowns last season and has a chance to improve on those stats. He can be considered a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/7/2017 6:09pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) participated in practice Monday, Aug. 7.

    Huddle Up: Shepard missed a few days of practice because of the injury but appears to be fine. Shepard is expected to serve as the No. 3 receiver for the Giants and could be used as a slot receiver. Owners should consider him a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/4/2017 1:04pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) said he fully expects to be ready to play in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Shepard has been sidelined for a few days because of his ankle injury but should be return to the field before the end of the preseason. He should be a top-three receiver for the Giants this season and probably can be considered a No. 4 or No. 5 fantasy receiver.

  • Posted: 8/4/2017 7:13am ET

    Updating previous reports, New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard's (ankle) MRI revealed a common sprained ankle, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Shepard should be ready for the season, but he'll be the third or fourth option on offense - depending on how quickly TE Evan Engram catches on. Shepard is a WR4 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 8/3/2017 11:56am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) is waiting for an MRI to hopefully confirm that he merely suffered a low-ankle sprain in practice Wednesday, Aug. 2.

    Huddle Up: Shepard's fantasy stock took a hit this offseason with the addition of Brandon Marshall, but he'll be a flex consideration or WR4 candidate if he is good to go for Week 1.

  • Posted: 8/2/2017 10:25am ET

    Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) suffered a 'basketball-type' sprained ankle in practice Wednesday, Aug. 2, and was carted off only as a precaution.

    Huddle Up: While not a serious injury per se, Shepard was reportedly in enough pain to leave the field in tears, so stay tuned for more updates as he is still undergoing tests. For now, the second-year receiver remains in WR5 consideration, although with much less touchdown upside than he had as a rookie.

  • Posted: 8/2/2017 8:37am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (undisclosed) was carted off Wednesday, Aug. 2, and appeared to be in serious pain.

    Huddle Up: It's too early to speculate, but Shepard was a WR5 with some upside if the injury isn't serious.

  • Posted: 6/14/2017 7:19am ET

    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.

  • Posted: 5/29/2017 2:13pm ET

    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.

  • Posted: 1/8/2017 6:10pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard finished with four catches for 63 yards in a 38-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 8.

    Huddle Up: Shepard put the finishing touches on a solid rookie season, and he heads into 2017 as WR3 candidate.

  • Posted: 12/22/2016 9:05pm ET

    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.

  • Posted: 12/4/2016 10:59pm ET

    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.
