|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.
| Kadarius Toney, Sterling Shepard miss practice Friday|
Quad injury for both

|WRs Kadarius Toney (quad) and Sterling Shepard (quad) not out during open portion of practice. Wouldn’t expect them to play Sunday vs Eagles. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Shepard last played in Week 8 missing time with a quad injury. With Toney missing practice all week with the same injury it's looking like Kenny Golladay and Darius Slayton as the top receivers for Daniel Jones against the Eagles. Given the poor offense, it's hard to trust Golladay as anything more than a Flex option.
| Sterling Shepard expected to miss some time|

|WR Sterling Shepard is expected to miss some time with a quad strain suffered Monday night vs. the Chiefs, per sources. Giants have the Raiders on Sunday and then their bye. So some time to get healthy. Still, the injury hits to their playmakers keep coming. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: If you're a Giants skill position player, you likely have an injury. Once again it's Sterling Shepard who has battled a hamstring injury now a quad this season. We'll have to wait and see what receivers are able to practice this week before getting a sense of what weapons will be at Daniel Jones' disposal in Week 9 against the Raiders.
| Sterling Shepard, Engram back at practice|
Kadarius Toney, Kenny Golladay and RB Saquon Barkley work on the side

|WR Sterling Shepard (hamstring) returned to practice Thursday. So did TE Evan Engram.
Not looking good for WR Kadarius Toney (ankle), WR Kenny Golladay (knee) and RB Saquon Barkley (ankle). Did work on the side with trainers. #giants #MNF (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Giants play Monday night so all of their injured players get an extra day to heal. We should have a better idea of who will play on Saturday but it sounds like it will be at least one more week for Golladay, Toney and Barkely. The Giants have a Bye in Week 10.
