Sterling Shepard (hamstring) will play on Sunday

Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard has been removed from the injury report. He'll play on Sunday after missing two games with a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact

Through the first two weeks of the season (plus part of Week 3), Shepard hauled in 18 passes for 223 yards and a touchdown. He and Kadarius Toney could split pass-catching duties with Kenny Golladay ruled out this week.

Sterling Shepard (hamstring) practices again on Thursday

Giants WR Sterling Shepard practice for the second time this week, as he continues to work his way back from a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact

Shepard drawing two consecutive practices is certainly encouraging for fantasy managers after he missed the last two weeks due to a hamstring injury. With the Giants receiving core depleted, Shepard would provide a much-needed boost and should deserve some WR3/FLEX consideration in a potential shootout against the Rams on Sunday.

Sterling Shepard (hamstring) returns to practice on Wednesday

Sterling Shepard is back at practice on Wednesday leading up to New York's game against the Rams.

Fantasy Impact

Shepard can be plugged into lineups this week as the Rams' defense has not been what it was one season ago. Kenny Golladay is expected to miss as well so Shepard could see double-digit targets in his return. Shepard is always an injury risk so keep that in mind while finalizing starting fantasy rosters.

Sterling Shepard (hamstring) ruled out Sunday

Sterling Shepard has been ruled out ahead of the Giants game on Sunday against the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact

Shepard and Darius Slayton (hamstring) will each miss their second straight game. Kadarius Toney becomes a solid play in desperate situations after becoming a big part of the Giants offense last week.

Sterling Shepard (hamstring) not practicing Wednesday

New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard was not spotted practicing on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Shepard was working on the side of the field on Wednesday, a good sign that he will be listed as DNP on this afternoon's injury report. He was injured in Week 3 and missed Week 4 with the injury. Kadarius Toney stepped into a featured role with both Shepard, and Darius Slayton sidelined, recording six receptions for 78 receiving yards. His nine targets led the team. If Shepard misses any more, Toney stands to be the main beneficiary.
