Sterling Shepard and Blake Martinez hopeful to be back by August

According to Giants reporter Jordan Raanen, LB Blake Martinez (knee) and WR Sterling Shepard (Achilles) are hopeful to return from injury by August.

Fantasy Impact

Both players suffered injuries and missed heavy portions of last season. Giants coach Joe Schoen stated the team is hopeful both LB Blake Martinez (knee) and WR Sterling Shepard (Achilles) can rejoin the team by August. The team also reiterated that Martinez is slightly ahead in his recovery ahead of Shepard.

Sterling Shepard and Giants agree to Restructure Deal

Sterling Shepard and the Giants agreed to restructure his contract to free up cap space for the team.

Fantasy Impact

Shepard is the longest-tenured player on the Giants and will rejoin Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney in the wide receiver room for Daniel Jones.

Sterling Shepard asked to take pay cut

The New York Giants have reportedly asked Sterling Shepard to take a significant pay cut this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

Shepard is currently scheduled to count for over $12 million against the cap this upcoming season. It is not clear how much of a pay cut Shepard is being asked to take, but it could be close to the league minimum. The Giants could save roughly $4 million in cap space by releasing him, which is possible if Shepard does not agree to take the pay cut. As part of a fairly crowded offense when everyone is healthy on this Giants offense, Shepard could possibly benefit from a change in scenery from a fantasy football perspective.
