    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
