I like Shepard's ability, but the return of Odell Beckham Jr. and the addition of Saquon Barkley, who should get a big chunk of targets, will likely lower Shepard's upside.Matthews is a solid fantasy player who often gets overlooked. He's still the No. 1 receiver and should be able to hold that designation another season even if Corey Davis shows improvement.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
"I thought Sterling had a great camp during the spring," Manning told NJ Advance Media, "He's understanding the coverage, understanding the route combinations, he understands zone and man, and how to make little moves to get open against different techniques." Shepard is coming off a 2017 campaign where he saw an expanded role after Odell Beckham Jr. shattered his ankle in Week 4, accounting for 59 catches for 731 yards and two touchdowns while averaging 12.4 yards per reception before his season was cut short due to injury in Week 11. (NJ.com)

Shepard is better than most think and with Marshall out of town he seems locked into a solid WR2 role 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
If you pro-rate Shepard's numbers last year to a full 16 games, we would have been a fringe WR3 just like his rookie season. Now that Barkley is part of the offense, his targets could drop off even more, leaving him as a mid-end WR4 unless anyone above him gets injured.Matthews will likely going to take a step back this season with the expected emergence of Corey Davis and the arrival of DIon Lewis. With that said, he was a top 36 receiver each of the past two seasons so it isn't like he will drop all the way out of fantasy relevance suddenly.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Over the first two years of his career, Shepard has shown the ability to step-up and be the focal point of a passing attack, though he doesn't need to be with Odell Beckham Jr. on the field. To know that he has that ability is a bonus, though, as Beckham Jr. has dealt with injuries throughout his career. Pat Shurmur did wonders for Adam Thielen's career while working out of the slot, which is where Shepard has played over 80 percent of his snaps the last two years. He's going to give you WR4 production regardless, but has upside for more. Despite Marcus Mariota getting hurt in 2016 and struggling through much of 2017, Matthews remained consistent in his production, hauling in 61 percent of his passes for 14.5 and 15.0 yards per reception in each year. The area his production dipped, though, was targets and touchdowns. With Corey Davis slated for a bigger role in 2018, you should expect that decline to continue, though Matthews won't go away, as he's been extremely efficient with his targets. He's comparable to the Titans version of DeSean Jackson.
