There are many excited for Shepard's potential with Odell Beckham Jr. off to Cleveland. While his target potential has definitely improved, his role must now change, especially with Golden Tate being signed to seemingly take over the slot role that Shepard has occupied for the last few seasons. When playing on the perimeter, Shepard has seen 62 targets over the last two years and hasn't scored a touchdown. If you're drafting him, it's due to his increase in volume, because his efficiency will take a hit. You also need to know that he suffered a broken thumb during the first few days of training camp and is unlikely to play at all in the preseason. They're expecting him to be ready for Week 1, but it's something to monitor.There are many taking solace in the fact that Foster finished with three 100-yard games over the final seven weeks, and while it was impressive, it's not repeatable. He saw more than five targets in just two games, not nearly enough to have consistent production. On top of that, the Bills went out and snagged both John Brown and Cole Beasley in free agency. Unless they bench their leading receiver last year (Zay Jones), Foster won't be on the field very much. It's possible he overtakes Jones, but do you really want the third option on a run-first team. Pass on Foster and let someone else cut him after the first few weeks
Brandon Funston

He's beaten his current ADP in both of his full seasons, and that was playing 2nd fiddle to OBJ - Shepard is one of the better draft values going at WR 
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Should be Eli's de facto #1 making him a weekly WR3/flex option. WIll be much more valuable in ppr leagues.I know Foster had a good stretch at the end of last season with three 100 yard game sprinkled in there, but two of those games he has 2 and 4 receptions which does not exactly yell 100 yards. The other game he had 7, which is more reasonable. He seems to be buried on the depth chart right now, so not worth a roster spot.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Most seem to be expecting Shepard to take a major step forward with Odell gone, and while that scenario is possible, it seems more likely that Tate, Engram and Barkley will prevent Shepard from realizing his upside as a target-hog WR2. Rather, expect south of 1,000 yards with just a handful of touchdowns once again.Foster exploded onto the scene at the end of the season and his tape actually looked terrific. He is the ideal type of weapon in Josh Allen's offense and may continue to produce strong weeks every now and then.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
Shepard is a sneaky late round pick this season. With Odell gone Shepard assumes the role of top target in the offense. Obviously, it's not a good offense, but he's going to approach 1,000 receiving yards, and we saw them use him in the red zone when Odell went down last season. On the season he ranked just behind Odell in red zone targets, and he was their most targeted receiver in that area after Odell went down. A 1,000/8 season is well within his range of outcomes, which means he's being under valued in drafts.Foster was quietly solid late last season, averaging 3.5/73/0.4 over the final 7 weeks. That's a season long pace of 56/1,168/6.4. Foster's future in the NFL is a bit of an unknown. He was heavily recruited out of college, then didn't play all that much in college, and went undrafted. He had a great run last season, but most of his production came on deep balls, so his stat line could have looked differently had a few balls been thrown a little differently. His play style does suit that of Josh Allen. Allen loves to chuck it deep, and can scramble long enough for guys to get open. Foster will compete with Smokey Brown for WR snaps in camp, and Foster does have a minor foot injury at the moment. Keep an eye on this situation as week 1 approaches. He could be a nice value if he's an every down WR like he was late last season. He could also lose the starting job and be irrelevant
