Dec. 17, 2017 7:34 PM PT8:34 PM MT9:34 PM CT10:34 PM ET3:34 GMT11:34 8:34 PM MST10:34 PM EST9:34 PM CT7:34 UAE (+1)22:34 ETNaN:� - Sterling Shepard had 11 receptions for 139 yards and one touchdown Sunday in the New York Giants' 34-29 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Analysis: Shepard hadn't done much since returning from a two-game absence caused by migraines, managing just five catches for 72 yards in two games after coming back. The second-year wideout did rack up 142 yards on 11 catches in his final game prior to being sidelined, so there's clearly plenty of fantasy potential here even if it's of the boom-or-bust variety in the Giants' inconsistent offense.
Dec. 14, 2017 9:47 AM PT10:47 AM MT11:47 AM CT12:47 PM ET17:47 GMT1:47 10:47 AM MST12:47 PM EST11:47 AM CT21:47 UAE12:47 ETNaN:� - Shepard will play Sunday after being limited in practice on Thursday due to a hamstring injury.
Analysis: We thought Shepard might have had more of a presence in New York's offense with Eli Manning back under center, but he only had two catches on Sunday.
Dec. 10, 2017 2:38 PM PT3:38 PM MT4:38 PM CT5:38 PM ET22:38 GMT6:38 3:38 PM MST5:38 PM EST4:38 PM CT2:38 UAE (+1)17:38 ETNaN:� - Sterling Shepard had two receptions for 16 yards Sunday in the New York Giants' 30-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He added one rush for -9 .
Dec. 6, 2017 9:32 AM PT10:32 AM MT11:32 AM CT12:32 PM ET17:32 GMT1:32 10:32 AM MST12:32 PM EST11:32 AM CT21:32 UAE12:32 ETNaN:� - Shepard (hamstring) is active Sunday against the Cowboys.
Analysis: Shepard could again play a bigger role in the offense now that Eli Manning is now back at QB.
Dec. 3, 2017 6:39 PM PT7:39 PM MT8:39 PM CT9:39 PM ET2:39 GMT10:39 7:39 PM MST9:39 PM EST8:39 PM CT6:39 UAE (+1)21:39 ETNaN:� - Sterling Shepard had three receptions for 56 yards Sunday in the New York Giants' 24-17 loss to the Oakland Raiders.
Analysis: Shepard came up with a 47-yard catch in the fourth quarter but was otherwise a non-factor in his return from a two-game absence caused by migraines. As the only healthy receiver on the roster with any playmaking ability, he should remain a fantasy asset even if the uninspiring Geno Smith stays at quarterback.
Nov. 19, 2017 8:06 AM PT9:06 AM MT10:06 AM CT11:06 AM ET16:06 GMT0:06 9:06 AM MST11:06 AM EST10:06 AM CT20:06 UAE11:06 ETNaN:� - Shepard, who's been dealing with migraine headaches, is officially inactive for Thursday's game at Washington.
Analysis: Shepard was listed as questionable but was never expected to play on a short week after missing all practices. The 2-8 Giants will again take the field with a rag-tag group of wide receivers alongside tight end Evan Engram, which won't bode well for Eli Manning's fantasy outlook.
Nov. 12, 2017 7:34 PM PT8:34 PM MT9:34 PM CT10:34 PM ET3:34 GMT11:34 8:34 PM MST10:34 PM EST9:34 PM CT7:34 UAE (+1)22:34 ETNaN:� - Sterling Shepard had 11 receptions for 142 yards Sunday in the New York Giants' 31-21 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
Analysis: The lone bright spot on another dismal day for the Giants, Shepard posted career bests for both catches and yards while asserting himself as the team's clear-cut No. 1 target in Odell Beckham's absence. With 29 receptions for 408 yards over his last five games, the second-year wideout is trending towards low-end WR1 territory.
Nov. 5, 2017 1:40 PM PT2:40 PM MT3:40 PM CT4:40 PM ET21:40 GMT5:40 2:40 PM MST4:40 PM EST3:40 PM CT1:40 UAE (+1)16:40 ETNaN:� - Sterling Shepard had five receptions for 70 yards Sunday in the New York Giants' 51-17 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.
Analysis: Shepard is one of the few decent options Eli Manning can throw to, but he's only scored one touchdown through the air.
Oct. 11, 2017 8:46 AM PT9:46 AM MT10:46 AM CT11:46 AM ET15:46 GMT23:46 8:46 AM MST10:46 AM EST10:46 AM CT19:46 UAE11:46 ETNaN:� - Shepard (ankle) is practicing for the second straight day on Thursday.
Analysis: With all the injuries the Giants have at receiver, Shepard has suddenly emerged as the Giants potential No. 1 wideout. He's worth a look on Sunday.
Oct. 8, 2017 10:15 AM PT11:15 AM MT12:15 PM CT1:15 PM ET17:15 GMT1:15 10:15 AM MST12:15 PM EST12:15 PM CT21:15 UAE13:15 ETNaN:� - Shepard won't return after suffering an ankle injury against the Chargers.
Analysis: Shepard isn't much of a fantasy option in most standard leagues.
Oct. 1, 2017 5:34 PM PT6:34 PM MT7:34 PM CT8:34 PM ET0:34 GMT8:34 5:34 PM MST7:34 PM EST7:34 PM CT4:34 UAE (+1)20:34 ETNaN:� - Sterling Shepard had five receptions for 54 yards Sunday in the New York Giants' 25-23 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Analysis: Shepard is on pace for 84 catches and a shade over 1,000 yards, and he'll be an even more desirable play if can find the end zone with the frequency he did as a rookie. The Giants look like they'll be throwing the ball a lot this season, so the sophomore wideout's outlook looks pretty promising the rest of the way.
Sep. 24, 2017 5:23 PM PT6:23 PM MT7:23 PM CT8:23 PM ET0:23 GMT8:23 5:23 PM MST7:23 PM EST7:23 PM CT4:23 UAE (+1)20:23 ETNaN:� - Sterling Shepard had seven receptions for 133 yards and one touchdown Sunday in the New York Giants' 27-24 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Analysis: Shepard only had nine catches for 67 yards in the first two games, so this was a breakout performance.
Sep. 18, 2017 8:44 PM PT9:44 PM MT10:44 PM CT11:44 PM ET3:44 GMT11:44 8:44 PM MST10:44 PM EST10:44 PM CT7:44 UAE (+1)23:44 ETNaN:� - Sterling Shepard had two receptions for 23 yards Monday in the New York Giants' 24-10 loss to the Detroit Lions. He added two rushes for seven yards.
Analysis: With Odell Beckham having returned, Shepard went from seven catches and eight targets in the opener to two and four, respectively, in this game. The second-year wideout showed as a rookie that he has a nose for the end zone, but touchdowns have been few and far between of late for the Giants' sputtering offense.
Sep. 10, 2017 8:46 PM PT9:46 PM MT10:46 PM CT11:46 PM ET3:46 GMT11:46 8:46 PM MST10:46 PM EST10:46 PM CT7:46 UAE (+1)23:46 ETNaN:� - Sterling Shepard had seven receptions for 44 yards Sunday in the New York Giants' 19-3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He added one rush for six yards.
Analysis: Shepard operated as New York's nominal No. 1 receiver with Odell Beckham sidelined and delivered a solid outing from a catches standpoint. With Brandon Marshall a complete non-factor in the opener, the second-year wideout could be in position to surpass the 65 receptions and 683 yards he produced as a rookie.
