  • Posted: 12/30/2018 5:39pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard finished with four receptions for 67 yards on nine targets in Week 17 against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Shepard's production was a bit erratic in 2018, but he still turned in 66 catches for 872 yards and four touchdowns. He will always be in the shadow of Odell Beckham Jr. as long as he is healthy, but Shepard can still be a decent WR4 or flex fantasy option in 2019. It would be amazing to see his potential with a little bit better quarterback play.

  • Posted: 12/27/2018 11:21am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hip) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 27.

    Huddle Up: The Week 17 value of Shepard hinges on the status of Odell Beckham Jr. If Beckham does not suit up then Shepard has WR2 appeal, although lower expectations since he is facing a tough Indianapolis Colts pass defense.

  • Posted: 12/26/2018 1:07pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (hip) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 26.

    Huddle Up: It remains to be seen if Odell Beckham Jr. returns, but if he doesn't then Shepard will be the Giants' primary receiving threat yet again. His matchup versus the Dallas Cowboys isn't ideal, but he'd be a WR2 candidate if he plays.

  • Posted: 12/23/2018 5:20pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught six of his seven targets for 113 yards in a 28-27 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: It was Shepard's first solid outing in several weeks and the first time he looked like a No. 1 receiver since Odell Beckham Jr. went down. That being said, he will be no more than a risky flex play in the season finale.

  • Posted: 12/21/2018 6:57pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard has been targeted 15 times in the two games WR Odell Beckham Jr. (quadriceps) has missed, but he has just four catches for 54 yards combined in those contests.

    Huddle Up: Beckham will be sidelined again in Week 16, but Shepard has yet to prove he can take advantage of the larger role. Don't expect that to change against an Indianapolis defense that has been solid against the pass.

  • Posted: 12/16/2018 2:36pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught two passes for 37 yards against the Tennessee Titans in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Shepard was targeted nine times during the game but did not have much success in the inclement weather. He has been targeted at six times in each of the last four games and likely will receive a similar workload next week. He could be a flex option in some leagues in Week 16.

  • Posted: 12/9/2018 5:13pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught two of his six targets for 17 yards and a touchdown in a 40-16 win over the Washington Redskins in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Shepard salvaged his day with the score, but with Odell Beckham Jr. sidelined, it was a discouraging outing overall. Even if Beckham misses more time, trusting Shepard isn't recommended.

  • Posted: 12/7/2018 1:18pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (rib) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 7, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Shepard has been targeted six times in each of the last two games but has been held to under 40 yards in six of the last seven games. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better options to use and can avoid Shepard this week.

  • Posted: 12/6/2018 2:23pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (rib) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 6.

    Huddle Up: Shepard should be able to play this week as long as he can tolerate the pain from his injured rib. He has been held to under 40 yards in each of the last five games and probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/5/2018 3:14pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ribs) took part in a limited practice session on Wednesday, Dec. 5.

    Huddle Up: Shepard left last week's game against the Bears, but checked back in and finished up. The good news is an X-rays and CT scan didn't reveal a serious injury Monday. The bad news is he has just 10 grabs for 87 yards with no scores over the past three games. He is more of a WR5 heading into Week 14 if he is able to play.

  • Posted: 12/3/2018 3:05pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ribs) said he underwent a CT scan on his injured ribs but it did not show any problems. He said he will have to deal with the pain but expects to be fine.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor Shepard's practice participation this week to see if he will be able to play in Week 14. He has been held to under 40 yards in each of the last five games and probably can be benched in most leagues.

  • Posted: 12/2/2018 7:29pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (rib) was able to return against the Chicago Bears in Week 13, finishing with four catches on six targets for 28 yards.

    Huddle Up: Shepard avoided a serious injury, but his role in the passing game remains as small as it has ever been. Stash him on your bench in case Odell Beckham Jr. suffers an injury, but Shepard shouldn't be starting.

  • Posted: 12/2/2018 11:27am ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard suffered a rib injury in the second quarter of Week 13 on Sunday, Dec. 2. His return is listed as questionable.

    Huddle Up: The first half has been a struggle for Shepard and Giants as he finished without a catch. We'll see if he's able to return in the second half.

  • Posted: 11/18/2018 5:50pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard finished with two catches on two targets for 22 yards in a 38-35 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Since a 167-yard performance a few weeks back, Shepard has just 65 yards combined over the last three games. He's a WR4 at this point, and you should be able to find a better starting option.

  • Posted: 11/12/2018 8:45pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught two passes for nine yards and one touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 10. He also rushed for 27 yards on one carry during the game.

    Huddle Up: Shepard was only targeted three times against the 49ers but recorded his first touchdowns in five games. He should be more involved in the passing game next week and can be a flex option in some leagues.

  • Posted: 10/28/2018 3:09pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught four passes for 34 yards against the Washington Redskins in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Shepard has been a popular target in the passing game this season but was held to under 40 yards for the second time in three weeks. He should have a more favorable matchup in Week 10 and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option against the San Francisco 49ers.

  • Posted: 10/22/2018 8:26pm ET

    New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard pulled down five receptions for a career-high 167 yards on eight targets in the Week 7 game against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday, Oct. 22.

    Huddle Up: It was Shepard's first 100-yard game of the season, and just the fifth time hitting the century mark in his three-year NFL career. He has three or more receptions in all seven outings this season, serving as a solid WR3 in most PPR formats. The Giants host the Redskins in Week 8.

  • Posted: 10/11/2018 8:54pm ET

    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.
