2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
The third-year breakout season for Shepard that many anticipated, especially with the prolonged absence of Odell Beckham Jr. due to injury, never materialized as the former Oklahoma Sooner managed just 66 receptions for 872 yards and four touchdowns on 107 targets.

Although some may chalk up Shepards' struggles to a terrible New York offense, the stats somewhat paint a different picture. The Giants finished 12th overall in passing yards, just ahead of the Saints and the Vikings. And the G-men finished the season with 689 total points for 16th in the league, ahead of other more impressive offenses like the Eagles and Vikings.

It is possible that Shepard moving to the outside with the addition of Golden Tate to the slot could lead to more touchdown opportunities. It is also possible that the improvements to the offensive line could give Eli Manning more time to let plays develop downfield for Shepard and Corey Coleman.

It is also possible that the Giants turn to rookie quarterback Daniel Jones midway through the season should the team be struggling to win games. If that does happen, all skill position players on the team take a knock in their value, especially the receiving corps.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Plethora of Giants on the mend
Saquon Barkley, Evan Engram "have a chance" to play in Week 7
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 14, 5:05 pm

New York Giants
RB Saquon Barkley (ankle), RB Wayne Gallman (concussion), TE Evan Engram (knee) and WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) all took part in individual drills during the Giants' light practice today. Shepard is still a longshot to play Sunday. Barkley and Engram have a chance to play. (SNY - Ralph Vacchiano)

FFToday's Take: Barkley will end up missing a total of three games with a high-ankle sprain if he returns in Week 7, and the release of Jon Hilliman after the Week 6 TNF game was an indication the team believes he will be ready for the Cardinals. Engram would be primed for a huge blowup spot against the league's worst defense against tight ends if he can go. As for Shepard, it seems reasonable he could be held out another week after suffering his second concussion of the season in Week 5.


Saquon Barkley and Wayne Gallman both out for TNF
TE Evan Engram doubtful, more Giants reeling from injuries
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Oct 8, 1:06 pm

New York Giants
New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley is unlikely to play Thursday night against the New England Patriots despite returning to practice late last week, multiple sources told ESPN. He had been eyeing this week's contest as a potential return date. There's also a real chance the Giants will be without tight end Evan Engram, who is dealing with a sprained MCL and faces a challenge to be healthy enough to face New England, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Engram is on pace for a career year with 33 catches for 373 yards and two touchdowns. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: So with Barkley unavailable Thursday and both Wayne Gallman and WR Sterling Shepard set to miss the game with concussions, the Giants are in dire straits. Undrafted rookie running back Jon Hilliman and fullback Elijhaa Penny, a converted tailback, are the next men up, and WR Golden Tate should see plenty fo targets operating out of the slot.


Injury Sterling Shepard suffers another concussion
Second one of the season
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 7, 5:20 pm

New York Giants
Giants receiver Sterling Shepard has another concussion, and will likely be out a while, according to a source. (SNY - Ralph Vacchiano)

FFToday's Take: It means he's a no-go for Thursday's clash with the Patriots, and there's no guarantee he'll be cleared in time to play against the Cardinals in Week 7. Golden Tate will slide into his slot-heavy role while Darius Slayton and Cody Latimer round out the three-receiver sets for the Giants in the meantime.


Injury Sterling Shepard ruled out for Week 2
Concussion
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 13, 12:40 pm

New York Giants
#NYGiants game statuses for Sunday: Out: WR Sterling Shepard (concussion), WR Darius Slayton (hamstring), TE Garrett Dickerson (quad) Questionable: WR Cody Latimer (calf) (Giants on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Shephard out and Latimer questionable it's going to be the Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram show against the Bills. Bennie Fowler, Russell Shepard and perhaps T.J. Jones will be change ups on the outside but expect the Giants to lean their running back and tight end in Week 2.


Golden Tate slapped with 4-game suspension
Rough week for Giants WR corps
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Jul 27, 9:15 am

New York Giants
Giants wide receiver Golden Tate is appealing a PED suspension, as first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter and confirmed by NJ Advance Media. Given that this is his first offense, he could face a four-game suspension if he loses. (NJ.com)

FFToday's Take: The Giants lost Corey Coleman to an ACL injury, Sterling Shepard to a fractured thumb and Tate's four-game suspension all in the same week. Tate is appealing and could get the penalty reduced but it's safe to say it hasn't been a good week for the Giants receiving corps. The Giants are likely to bring in a veteran receiver very soon.


Injury Sterling Shepard week-to-week
WR breaks left thumb in practice Thursday
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jul 25, 10:40 pm

New York Giants
The X-ray on Sterling Shepard’s thumb revealed a fracture. Sterling Shepard will be evaluated on a week-to-week basis. (NY Giants on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: A strong candidate for his first 1,000-yard season with Odell Beckham Jr. in Cleveland, Shepard will likely at best suit up for Week 1 with little to no practice under his belt. The Giants don't figure to boast an explosive passing game by any means in 2019, but a prolonged absence from Shepard would likely mean huge target shares for Saquon Barkley, Golden Tate and Evan Engram.
