Summary

Sterling Shepard wasn't the rookie standout most expected. Whether he's a victim of unfair expectations, fantasy owners wanted more than 65 receptions and 683 yards from the rookie second rounder. The season wasn't a complete washout: he caught eight touchdowns and his 62% catch rate was respectable. The big issue for Shepard entering this season is his explosiveness with the ball in his hands. He averaged 3.9 yards-after-the-catch; ranking 69th among qualified receivers. Expecting growth in his second season is rational, but Shepard's outlook is clouded by the additions of Brandon Marshall and rookie (receiving) tight end Evan Engram. Shepard still has the tools to become a perennial 1,000-yard receiver particularly with opposing defenses keying on Odell Beckham, but the Giants offseason moves make it harder to bet on a breakout.

Giants | Sterling Shepard impressing (Wed Jun 14, 10:19 AM) - 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.

Our View: That's cool that he's catching everything thrown his way, but with the additions of WR Brandon Marshall and rookie TE Evan Engram there may not be as many targets for Shepard as there was last year. With 65 catches and eight touchdowns last year as a rookie, it may be difficult for Shepard to recreate those numbers this year.
