2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
Injuries limited Shepard to just 12 games in 2020, with 66 catches for 653 yards and three scores. Although the production was less than ideal, he was quietly on pace for 120 targets and nearly 900 yards, and five touchdowns.

The Kenny Golladay signing will drastically change the outlook for Shepard. On the one hand, he will likely be the No.3 target on a team that is not a great passing offense with a quarterback who ranked 31st in fantasy points a game. On another, Shepard will be running primarily in the slot, where he is at his best.

Shepard appears to be headed for the dreadful "he is a better real-life player than a fantasy option" label unless there is an injury to Golladay or Evan Ingram.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton practice on Wednesday
Should play in Week 6
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 13, 11:37 am

New York Giants
The good news: WRs Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton practiced (below). I’m expecting them to play Sunday. Same for S Jabrill Peppers. All had hamstring injuries. LT Andrew Thomas (foot) and LG Matt Skura (leg?) were on the side during drills. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Both Shepard and Slayton have missed the last two weeks with hamstring injuries. With Kenny Golladay (knee) likely out, expect Shepard, Slayton and rookie Kadarius Toney to be the starting wideouts against the Rams this week.


Injury Sterling Shephard, Darius Slayton out for Week 5
Hamstring injuries

New York Giants
WRs Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton. G Ben Bredeson and S Jabrill Peppers are out Sunday against the #Cowboys. Starting LT Andrew Thomas (foot) is questionable. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Once again, the Giants will roll with Kenny Golladay, Kadarius Toney and John Ross as their starting wide receivers. Golladay was very efficient with his 7 targets last week, catching six for 116 yards. Toney (6-78) projects to work more out of the slot against the Cowboys defense.


Injury Kadarius Toney could be in the slot for Week 4
Giants rookie set for expanded role with team's WR injury woes
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Sep 28, 9:20 am

New York Giants
The Giants saw two of their top wide receivers, Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepard, suffer hamstring injuries in Week 3, opening the door for more snaps from disgruntled rookie WR Kadarius Toney. Shepard primarily plays in the slot, so if he can’t play this Sunday in New Orleans, Toney might wind up stepping in. (NJ.com)

FFToday's Take: The Giants drafted Toney 20th overall this year, and he’s had a limited role so far -- so it won’t be an easy spot for him to break out. He played five and 19 snaps in the first two games, and then got 46 last week (66% of the action), as Shepard and Slayton both got hurt in the first half. Still, Toney had just three targets and hauled in 2-16-0s. For the season, he has five targets and 4-14-0 receiving, but might be worth a look as a deep league add or DFS punt play.
