  Giants | Sterling Shepard will suit up    Sat Oct 31, 05:52 PM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (shoulder, toe) was a limited participant in practice Saturday, Oct. 31, but is not listed on the Week 8 injury report.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard had six receptions, 59 yards and a touchdown against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, Oct. 22. Shepard was targeted eight times.

Footballguys view: Shepard should be added in all formats if he wasn't already. Daniel Jones is obviously most comfortable throwing to him in the short and intermediate range and should be targeted frequently against the Bucs next week.

  Giants | Sterling Shepard likely out this week    Fri Oct 16, 02:13 AM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (toe) is unlikely to return this week, according to The Athletic's Dan Duggan, who wrote that a return could be 'rule[d] out this week' before suggesting Shepard might play in Week 7 against the Eagles -- a game that takes place on Thursday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Shepard should become the most reliable short range target for Daniel Jones as soon as he is back. In deep PPR leagues go ahead and add Shepard now before news of his imminent return becomes more widespread.

  Giants | Sterling Shepard to IR    Wed Sep 23, 10:47 AM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (toe) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Sept. 23.

Footballguys view: Shepard is dealing with turf toe and that will keep him out for some time. With this IR designation, Shepard cannot return for the Giants until Week 6 at the earliest. Darius Slayton, Golden Tate, and Evan Engram will continue as the top targets for the Giants while Shepard is out.

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (toe) is believed to be dealing with turf toe and expected to miss 'some time,' according to a source via NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: Turf toe is a painful injury that can linger if not given enough time to heal. The Giants will be super cautious with Shepard as he deals with this. Darius Slayton and Golden Tate will get a majority of the looks at the wide receiver position in Week 3.

  Giants | Sterling Shepard looking to lead    Fri Aug 7, 01:03 PM

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard is entering the 2020 season as the longest-tenured Giant, and said Friday, Aug. 7, in a Zoom media conference call that 'I might have to shake the 'young' Shep.' He added that he plans to set a 'good example' for his younger teammates.

Footballguys view: The Giants have quite the arsenal of targets for Daniel Jones if everyone can stay healthy. In Shepard's case, that means avoiding concussions after they were a problem for him last year. He has played and produced better than his cheap ADP and could be a hit if he stays healthy and Evan Engram does not.

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.

  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.
