Shepard broke his thumb on Thursday July 25 and is week to week. He could be ready for Week 1

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. Unfortunately, Shepard broke his thumb on the first day of training camp and will miss most of the preseason. (August 9)
