As expected, Shepard was essentially a perimeter-only player with Golden Tate back in the lineup. The targets happened to go to Slayton this week, but we shouldn't let one game influence our expected target shares, as Shepard has still seen at least six targets in every game and is averaging 8.0 per game. The Dolphins have a starting perimeter cornerback duo of Nike Needham and Ken Webster (was actually placed on IR this week) right now. That duo has allowed just a 55 percent catch-rate, but when they do allow a catch, it goes for plenty of fantasy points, as the 13.8 yards per catch and touchdown every 11.6 targets indicates. Here's a fun fact about the Dolphins: They have allowed 12 wide receivers to finish as the WR11 or better, but no other receiver has finished better than WR25. That's because there's just one receiver who's topped 51 yards without scoring. Knowing he may be competing for targets with Slayton, we have to keep expectations in check, making Shepard a high-end WR4.

Sterling Shepard catches four passes Sunday

Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard caught four of his seven targets for 28 yards in Monday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Shepard was outperformed by rookie wideout Darius Slayton and managed just 28 yards on his four catches on Monday as the New York offense was held to just 29 total yards in the second half.
