Summary

Sterling Shepard had a golden opportunity in his second season and disappointed. On the surface, the former Oklahoma Sooner improved in some areas. His catch rate increased to 70% from 62%. His yards per catch increased from 10.5 to 12.4. His raised his receptions per game from 4.1 to 5.4, and his per-game yardage grew from 42.7 to 66.5. A deeper look points to Shepard hitting the ceiling and cementing himself as a complementary player rather than a star. Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall both missed the majority of the season, and yet Shepard struggled to string together dominant performances as the offensive focal point. Injuries played a role; he missed games with ankle and neck pain, as well as migraines. And the coaching situation and locker room turmoil didn't help matters. Unfortunately, Shepard may find himself the fourth option in Pat Shurmur's new offense. Beckham is healthy, tight end Evan Engram is sure to build off a stellar rookie season, and Saquon Barkley will be the immediate centerpiece. (May 22)
