One of only 20 NFL players to surpass 120 targets in 2019, Crowder figures to be the top option in the Jets' passing game again in 2020. More of a fantasy option in PPR leagues than he is in leagues that utilize a standard scoring system, he hasn't reached 100 receiving yards in a game since November 2017, when he was catching passes from Kirk Cousins in Washington.Signed prior to last season to a four-year, 41 million extension, Shepard picked up a few of the targets that had gone to Odell Beckham in prior seasons, averaging more than eight targets per game for the first time in his career. The expectation is that he will continue to work primarily out of the slot in 2020 despite the slot also being the preferred position of Golden Tate.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 Sterling Shepard tied for 17th most in the NFL for targets per game in 2019 with 8.3. The Athletic's Dan Duggan said Giants WR Sterling Shepard has dominated opposing cornerbacks in training camp, establishing himself as the clear No. 1 wideout.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Jamison Crowder is the number one receiver in the Jets offense and with Sam Darnold back, the O-line improving and better outside receivers to draw coverage, this is a great opportunity to have a breakout PPR season. His upside really hinges on how many receptions Le'Veon Bell and Chris Herndon steal around the middle of the field and that's why you shouldn't draft him too high, but he is a nice, safe late option.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 offense expected to run more often this year under Joe Judge. He's a low upside mid-round pick.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There were just 24 wide receivers who finished with 110-plus targets last year. Crowder was one of them. He was No. 16, actually. Did you know he's the only one who didn't finish as a top-26 wide receiver? His No. 31 finish was better than most would anticipate, though it was uglier than you'd like it to be. In fact, he produced WR3 or better numbers just 43.8 percent of the time, which ranked 42nd among wide receivers. He also scored fewer than 8.0 PPR points in 43.8 percent of his games. With that being said, he's the only receiver returning to the starting lineup for Sam Darnold. Both Breshad Perriman and Denzel Mims are new faces who are going to require time to learn the new offense and develop chemistry with Darnold. Crowder's targets aren't likely to go anywhere. In fact, they might actually go up, which is kind of crazy. Crowder doesn't offer top-15 wide receiver upside, but he does present some stability as a mix-and-match WR3/4 type who presents a solid floor in a pinch. His current ADP of WR49 allows you to get him as your WR5 in some situations, which is fine if you need to add some balance to your high-upside team.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.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Crowder was the 31st-ranked wide receiver in half-PPR formats last year, yet is being drafted as a WR5 this year. And that's despite the fact that the Jets have two new receivers who won't be able to develop chemistry with Sam Darnold in any preseason games, with Denzel Mims suffering from a hamstring injury to boot. Crowder is never going to pop - his average depth of target is too low and he isn't a huge end zone threat. So yes, his ceiling will be limited. But his floor is extremely high, and he should greatly outperform his draft position. 
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Every year it seems like Jamison Crowder is supposed to really break out but it just never happens. He has some solid games but he's extremely reliant on target share. With the Jets adding Breshad Perriman and rookie Denzel Mims this offseason, Crowder has more competition than ever. He's a solid bench WR in PPR and gets a major downgrade in standard leagues.When healthy, Shepard has been a solid WR3 but the problem is, he's rarely healthy. Now with the emergence of Darius Slayton and the presence of veteran Golden Tate, I don't like Shepard's chances of living up to his ADP.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Jamison Crowder is under drafted every season, and should be a solid WR3 again this season. He was 14th in target share in 2019 and that should not change much. Furthermore, Gase utilizes his slot receiver in the end zone more than any other position. Sign me up for Crowder. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Crowder's not exactly the most exciting pick, but he's proven that he can be extremely productive in this offense. This season, Crowder has Breshad Perriman and Denzel Mims as competition for targets and neither of them are going to be extremely reliable right away. Sam Darnold trusts Crowder and we could see him return value yet again in 2020. It's not the most exciting pick, but it's a smart pick.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.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
His week 1 in 2019 summed up the type of production you can expect from guys like him perfectly. 17 targets, 14 receptions, for 99 yards. A solid 90th in YPC. His target competition will be greater than Demaryius Thomas being 4th on the team in targets this year. Mims, Perriman, and Herndon will all be bigger threats to Crowder than anything he had last year. Even if we think he still reaches 100 targets, it took 122 to barely be flex worthy in 2019. Lets look at some things he's bad at: 84th in YPR and Yards per Target, 50th in catch rate, 91st in AVG target distance, 72nd in target separation, 54th in drop rate, 70th in fantasy points per target.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.

Still drips in upside - flashed massive target hog upside and chemistry at times with Darnold, and Bell & Anderson c ould be gone
