WR - FA
Week 14 Outlook
The Los Angeles Charges signed WR Darrius Shepherd Thursday.
Shepherd entered the NFL in 2019 and has six receptions for 47 yards in 14 career games. The young wide receiver has spent time on multiple practice squads during his career and likely will not carry much fantasy value in 2023.
According to Mike Klis, Darrius Shepherd has signed with the Denver Broncos.
Darrius Shepherd has appeared in 14 NFL games, all with the Packers, and has recorded six receptions for 47 yards on just 10 targets. Shepherd played this past season with the USFL's New Jersey Generals, hauling in 27 receptions for 323 yards and one touchdown. Shepherd also brings value on special teams, having returned 23 punts/kicks throughout his two years in the NFL. The young receiver will look to compete for a spot on the Broncos' roster now that Tim Patrick (ACL) has been ruled out for the entirety of the 2022 season.
Darrius Shepherd caught his only target for 16 yards in the Packers’ 38-10 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.
With Davante Adams back in action, Shepherd was little more than an afterthought in Green Bay’s passing attack. He won’t be on the fantasy radar barring injuries or absences in the receiving corps.
Darrius Shepherd caught two of three targets for 21 yards in the Packers’ 30-16 win over the Falcons on Sunday.
Shepherd was promoted from the practice squad less than two weeks ago, and he drew the start on Monday night thanks to a string of injuries ahead of him on the depth chart. Davante Adams is expected back after the Week 5 bye, and Shepherd's role should diminish further when that happens.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Darrius Shepherd is inactive for the team's opening night matchup against the Chicago Bears on Thursday Night Football.
Shepherd is buried on the depth chart in Green Bay and is unlikely to play a significant role barring injuries to multiple wide receivers ahead of him.
