Brandon Marshall managed just 66-yards on eight receptions in the Giants' Week 3 loss to the Eagles 27-24. He was targeted 11 times, second on the team only to Odell Beckham, but still ended the game with very modest numbers for a player who was likely drafted as a fantasy WR2/3.

Sterling Shepard breaks out in Week 3 against Eagles
Sterling Shepard hauled in seven receptions for 133-yards and one TD in the Giants' Week 3 loss to the Eagles 27-24. Shepard's big play was a 77-yard TD reception in the fourth quarter which, momentarily, put the Giants ahead before they lost in gut-wrenching fashion. He appeared to have a TD at the close of the first half, but upon official review, the TD call was reversed since he failed to maintain control through the end of the catch when he hit the ground.

Sterling Shepard with only 23 receiving yards in Week 2
Sterling Shepard managed just 23 yards on two receptions in the Giants' rancid 24-10 loss to the Lions on Monday night. He added seven yards on the ground, on two carries, in this latest Giants egg. Shepard was targeted just four times in what was another very questionable Giants game plan, particularly after the Lions took a two-TD lead in the fourth quarter.
