  Giants | Sterling Shepard finds end zone    Sun Dec 1, 05:34 PM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught three passes for 40 yards and one touchdown against the Green Bay Packers in Week 13. He was targeted seven times during the game.

Footballguys view: Shepard caught an early score to make for a decent line in what should have been a bigger day with Golden Tate out. He's just a what the heck flex if Tate is back next week against the Eagles, but the matchup is good.

  Giants | Sterling Shepard registers five catches    Sun Nov 24, 07:26 PM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard ended up with five catches for 15 yards on nine targets in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears.

Footballguys view: We're happy to see him back on the field after his two concussions and an unexpected re-entry into protocol as he was poised to return to the field earlier this year. He's worth rostering down the stretch against a schedule of weak pass defenses to see if he heats up.

  Giants | Sterling Shepard ready to return?    Thu Nov 21, 09:34 PM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) is 'looking good' to play against the Chicago Bears in Week 12, according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Shepard is a low ceiling play with a strong cast around him and a good pass defense on the other side of the ball in Chicago, but he's worth a preemptive pickup because of a string of weak pass defenses coming up.

Footballguys view: It looks like sixth-round pick Kaden Smith will play a big role in the Giants offense at tight end in Chicago with Engram and Ellison both ailing.

  Giants | Sterling Shepard takes part in practice    Thu Nov 21, 04:37 PM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 21.

Footballguys view: Shepard is still in concussion protocol and the Giants may take it slow with him because he has suffered two head injuries this year. If he can get back on the field for a schedule of easy pass defenses from Week 13-16, he'll be worth a roster spot in typical leagues.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) researched concussions and sought out legal supplements during his three-game absence but has few concerns going forward. 'I don't need to play this game if I can't go out and be the player that I am,' Sherpard said.

Footballguys view: Shepard has been concussed twice this season, and that's why he's missed a handful of games. He's back this week for the Giants, but we can only trust him as a WR3 or deep flex play against the Cowboys on Monday night.

  Giants | Sterling Shepard cleared for contact    Wed Oct 30, 12:29 PM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) practiced without his non-contact jersey for the first time Wednesday, Oct. 30.

Footballguys view: The Giants have been wisely cautious with Shepard as he's worked back from his second concussion of the year. Shepard would get a larger role upon his return. That would lessen the snaps/routes/targets for a guy like Darius Slayton.
