Expert Note
View More Notes

Shepard has caught four of five targets over the last two games, and he has fallen short of 40 yards in four of the past five bouts. Saquon Barkley and Odell Beckham Jr. eat up too many opportunities to trust him on a weekly basis, and yet it's still hard to overlook him against an Eagles secondary with virtually no healthy cornerbacks remaining. They have allowed the most receptions (15.8) and second-most receiving yards per game (203.4) to wide receivers. He just under-delivered in a golden matchup, but Shepard has an opportunity to make amends in a game where Eli Manning should throw closer to his average 36 times rather than Week 11's 18. Give him one more chance as a high-upside WR3.

Sterling Shepard has quiet day against Buccaneers

New York wide receiver Sterling Shepard caught two passes for 22 yards in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact

This was the second straight two-catch game for Shepard, although he managed to find the end zone last week. He is hard to trust in fantasy right now as the Giants focus their game plans around running back Saquon Barkley and fellow wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
