Summary

Sterling Shepard is the X-factor of the Giants trio of projected starters. Many expected Shepard to break out in 2019 after years of playing second fiddle to Odell Beckham, but it was another ho-hum season. He's never had 70 catches or 900 yards in a season, and appears to have lost a step after a litany of injuries. While there are questions left to answer, the Giants have an enormous investment in seeing Shepard make the leap. They signed him to a 4-year, $41 million extension last year and it would be financially unreasonable to part ways any earlier than the 2022 offseason. Fantasy owners should view Shepard as a late round call option with 80-catch upside if he stays healthy and holds off Darius Slayton for the top spot. (July 14)

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.

Our 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.
