Over the first two years of his career, Shepard has shown the ability to step-up and be the focal point of a passing attack, though he doesn't need to be with Odell Beckham Jr. on the field. To know that he has that ability is a bonus, though, as Beckham Jr. has dealt with injuries throughout his career. Pat Shurmur did wonders for Adam Thielen's career while working out of the slot, which is where Shepard has played over 80 percent of his snaps the last two years. He's going to give you WR4 production regardless, but has upside for much more.

Sterling Shepard with five catches against the Cardinals

Sterling Shepard caught five of eight targets for 45 yards on Sunday against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Shepard also apparently injured his neck in the game, though there is no word on the severity just yet. If the injury is significant in any way, he's likely to miss next week's game against the Redskins. If he does play, he should make a decent start, as usual.
