Expert 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
In a season where he was dealing with injuries and a rookie quarterback, Shepard still posted WR2 or better numbers in 40 percent of his games, which ranked 33rd among wide receivers. Now, to be fair, the offense has changed, but it doesn't appear the new regime is very fond of Evan Engram, as evidenced by putting him on the trade block during the NFL Draft. Golden Tate is aging, and while Darius Slayton did flash at times, it was a relatively small sample size. It shouldn't shock anyone to see Shepard get 100-plus targets in 2020 and finish as a WR3, though you do have to wonder what his upside actually is with so many mouths to feed. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
When Shepard's on the field, he's a target vacuum. However, he's rarely been on the field the past couple seasons and he is playing in one of the deepest receiving corps in the entire league. Darius Slayton, Golden Tate, Evan Engram, and Saquon Barkley are all going to command targets in this offense, which limits each player's ceiling. If one of the other options misses time, Shepard can be extremely fantasy relevant, but it's impossible to project that going into the season. Shepard's a risky pick this year. 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Sterling Shepard went into 2019 as the clear cut Giants WR1 but he failed to perform, missing half the season with injury and only performing against mediocre opposition. Now with Saquon Barkley, Evan Engram, Golden Tate and Darius Slayton to compete with, it's hard to see Shepard providing weekly security in an offence expected to run more often this year under Joe Judge. He's a low upside mid-round pick.After his late season rookie breakout, Dante Pettis was nothing short of a monumental bust in 2019. The 49ers have now made it clear they have little interest in the former second rounder and he'll spend 2020 fighting for his roster spot.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Sterling Shepard tied for 17th most in the NFL for targets per game in 2019 with 8.3. 
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
4 years in and we have a yards per reception of 11.6. That average is a lot of work just to go over 1000 yards. Combine that with his lack of TDs, and worrisome concussion history, and you get a perfectly boring WR that needs 90+ receptions to be fantasy relevant.
