2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
Shepard received no fewer than six targets in any game last season, finishing the year with an impressive average of 8.3 targets per game. Unfortunately, he did not do a whole lot with that volume, with only 575 receding yards and three touchdowns. His 10.1 yard per reception was the worst of his four-year NFL career, and he managed to play in just 10 of the team's 16 games.

On a positive note, 11 of those 83 targets did come in the red zone, giving him the second-most on the team behind Evan Engram. Two of his three receiving touchdowns came in the red zone.

Shepard is slated to be the starting outside wide receiver in what could be a high scoring offense. The Giants bolstered their offensive line, but they once again project to be a defense ranked in the bottom half.

Should he stay healthy and play a full 16-game slate, both Shepard and Tate look to be locks as low-cost receivers who will receive at least 100 targets. The problem, though, is neither one is a massive threat to score double-digit touchdowns, which limits their value significantly in non-ppr formats.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Sterling Shepard hits IR with turf toe
Giants WR will miss at least the next three weeks
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Wed Sep 23, 11:11 am

New York Giants
Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) on Twitter: "Now this: Giants placed WR Sterling Shepard on IR." (Twitter/ESPN)

FFToday's Take: The hits just keep on coming for the G-Men. Shepard has turf toe - a multi-week injury, so he's out the next three games but could return when first eligible in Week 6. Darius Slayton, Golden Tate, and Evan Engram will see higher target shares with Shepard out, and dynamic Damion Ratley will step into three-wide sets.


Injury Sterling Shepard expected to miss some time
Likely dealing with turf toe
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 21, 6:40 pm

New York Giants
Giants WR Sterling Shepard, knocked out yesterday with a toe injury, is believed to be dealing with turf toe, source said. He’ll have an MRI today, but that’s an ailment that generally causes a WR to miss some time. (NFL Network - Ian Rapoport)

FFToday's Take: Dealing with injury has unfortunately been the tale of Shepard's pro career to this point. The fifth-year pro wasn't making a huge dent in fantasy so far, but some of that could have been due to the quality of defenses the Giants have faced so far. Darius Slayton and Golden Tate are good bets to flirt with WR3 production in his absence, although starting either player will come with limited upside against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3.


Injury Golden Tate expected to play
Missed Week 1 with hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 20, 8:15 am

New York Giants
#Giants WR Golden Tate, listed as questionable after missing Week 1 with a hamstring injury, is expected to play today, source said. He should be at full strength. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Giants receiving corps will be at full strength today against the Bears with Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard playing along side Tate. Slayton led the group last week with 6-102-2 line against the Steelers.
