He missed last week with concussion-like symptoms, but there are rumors he could miss even more time. It's not just that, as Golden Tate returning to the offense has kicked him out of the slot, where he did most of his damage in fantasy leagues. In fact, Shepard has still yet to score a touchdown in his career when he's not lined up in the slot.

Sterling Shepard 'longshot' to play Week 7

Sterling Shepard was able to return to individual drills on Monday, but he remains a "longshot" to play Week 7 against the Cardinals due to his concussion.

Fantasy Impact

This is already the second time Shepard is dealing with a concussion this season, which is certainly a concern. He's been good when he's been active, but the return of Golden Tate and Saquon Barkley figure to siphon targets from Shepard when he is able to make it back. However, at this point, it's unclear when the wide receiver will be able to return. Owners in shallower leagues could drop Shepard as needed over the bye weeks.
