Summary

Shepard has been a productive contributor in three seasons but has yet to emerge as a game-breaker. With Odell Beckham gone, Shepard will have the best opportunity of his career to emerge as a No. 1 receiver, although he'll have to share the limelight with free agent Golden Tate. Giants ownership rewarded Shepard with a 4-year, $40 million extension this offseason which is a testament to their confidence in his continued improvement. He'll need to improve across the board to make up for his departed teammate as he ranks outside the top-40 in yards-after-the-catch and catch rate through three seasons. (September 2)

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.

Our 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.
