Russell Shepard catches just one pass in spot start

Giants wide receiver Russell Shepard caught just one pass for nine yards in the team's loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Shepard entered the lineup as the No. 3 wide receiver with Cody Latimer out with an injury, but he was unable to capitalize on the opportunity.

Russell Shepard released by Panthers

The Carolina Panthers granted sixth-year wide receiver Russell Shepard his release after the veteran wideout refused to take a pay cut and asked to become a free agent.

Fantasy Impact

A former undrafted free agent out of LSU, Shepard spent his first four seasons in Tampa Bay before catching 17 passes for 202 yards in 15 games with Carolina in 2017. He'll probably get a camp invite, but Shepard is well off the fantasy radar.

Russell Shepard catches three passes against the Saints

Russell Shepard caught three of five targets for 29 yards on Sunday against the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Even without Greg Olsen, Shepard simply doesn't get the volume to be a viable wide receiver play. He's only an option in extremely deep leagues.

Russell Shepard disappears in Week 12

Russell Shepard failed to get a target in Sunday's come from behind victory over the Jets.

Fantasy Impact

If there was a game for Shepard to show up this was it, but he failed to get even a target. The Panthers trailed for the majority of the game, but at best Shepard is the forth option in Carolina's offense that doesn't pass all that much. Depending on how Greg Olsen's foot handles this week of practice after receiving some good news today, will determine Shepard's value. If Olsen were to miss more time Shepard would receive a slight bump to WR4 territory, if Olsen plays Shepard isn't ownable in any format.

Russell Shepard fails to secure a reception in Week 9

Russell Shepard couldn't come down with either of his two targets during Carolina's 20-17 win over the Falcons in Week 9.

Fantasy Impact

Shepard saw no discernible boost in looks or production after Kelvin Benjamin was traded, as rookie wideout Curtis Samuel instead saw a boost in looks. Shepard is not a fantasy factor at this point.
