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 Daniel Jones takes first team reps
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 18, 1:00 pm

New York Giants
Daniel Jones (ankle) a full participant in practice. Took “most” of the first-team reps at practice. Did fine. Coach Pat Shurmur said they’ll see how he does at practice this week before knowing for sure if he’ll start vs. Redskins. #Giants (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jones is expected to start this week against the Redskins pushing Eli Manning back to the bench. Jones will be missing TE Evan Engram but will have all three of his starting receivers, Golden Tate, Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton.


Injury Tate, Engram, Ellison ruled out for Week 13
Giants short-handed against the Packers
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 29, 12:01 pm

New York Giants
OUT for Sunday vs. Packers: WR Golden Tate (concussion), TE Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion), LS Zak DeOssie (back/wrist) and S Jabrill Peppers (back). (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Giants will be short-handed against the Packers this week with Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton and Cody Latimer working as the top three wideouts. Kaden Smith and Scott Simonson will fill the void at TE but neither are viable fantasy options.


Injury Golden Tate in concussion protocol
Dealing with concussion suffered in Week 12
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 25, 5:05 pm

New York Giants
Injury update: Golden Tate is in the concussion protocol. Cause of Golden’s concussion is the way he landed on the touchdown reception. (Giants.com)

FFToday's Take: Tate has been a rock-solid WR3 since he returned from his season-opening four-game suspension, so his absence will be felt if he must miss a game or two. However, Sterling Shepard returned from his own concussion in Week 12 and would almost certainly replace Tate in the slot if Tate cannot play. Consider Shepard a WR3 with some decent upside in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.


Injury Evan Engram, Ellison ruled out for Week 12
Scott Simonson and Kaden Smith will fill the void at TE
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 22, 12:45 pm

New York Giants
TEs Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) were officially ruled out for Sunday vs. Bears. Engram said he did some running Friday and felt good. Eyes on next week. TEs Scott Simonson and Kaden Smith will assume a heavy role this week. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Engram out, fantasy owners can look to other options than Simonson and Smith at the tight end position. The Giants are expected to have their top three wide receivers (Golden Tate, Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton) available against the Bears.


Injury Engram, Ellison miss practice Wednesday
Unlikely Engram plays in Week 12
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 20, 11:08 am

New York Giants
TEs Evan Engram (foot) and Rhett Ellison (concussion) not practicing. Would seem to be an upset if Engram's ready for Sunday vs. Bears. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It's looking like another missed game for Engram who last played in Week 9. If he sits, expect the Giants to lean on their three wide receiver set of Golden Tate, Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard against the Bears.
