The Giants are 31st against fantasy wide receivers, Jeffery should be a WR2 with upside after a huge game in Miami last week.Shepard has good WR3 appeal against an Eagles secondary that has struggled to stop anyone this season.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
So, apparently his ankle is just fine, eh? Jeffery has seen at least five targets in every game but has seen eight-plus targets in five of the last seven games. With the Giants run defense playing as well as they are, the Giants have allowed six top-24 receivers in their last three games. Demaryius Thomas, Jamison Crowder, Allen Robinson, Anthony Miller, Davante Adams, and Allen Lazard were the ones to get there, so it's not like they were playing Michael Thomas and Julio Jones in each of those games. There have been 12 receivers who've seen eight-plus targets against them, and Randall Cobb was the only one who failed to score at least 13.7 PPR points (he scored 9.5, so it wasn't a complete waste). The Giants have kind of given up the whole Janoris Jenkins shadow bit, as he's just not a dominant player anymore. If the Eagles were wise, they'd line Jeffery up on the left side of the formation much more often to get him matched-up with DeAndre Baker, who's allowed a 135.3 rating in his coverage this year. Jeffery should be in lineups as a low-end WR2 for this contest and has some upside.With Golden Tate on the shelf, it moved Shepard into the slot for 80-plus percent of his routes last week, which was the tougher matchup against the Packers. His touchdown came on one of the seven routes he ran on the perimeter. It was actually the first perimeter touchdown of his career. The matchup against the Eagles is also better on the perimeter, which makes us hopeful that Tate returns by Monday night. Shepard has seen nine targets in each of the two games that he and Tate have played together, so there's enough targets to go around. He'll line up across from both Ronald Darby and Jalen Mills, but mostly the latter. Mills has been an extremely hit-or-miss cornerback in his time, and he is coming off two of the worst games of his career. In those games, he's allowed 11-of-16 passing for 203 yards and three touchdowns. The matchup is not one to worry about with Shepard who's seen at least seven targets in every game. He should be considered a stable WR3 this week.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Alshon Jeffery played last week for the first time in a month and he went off. Facing the aforementioned Miami Dolphins, he caught 9-of-16 targets for 137 yards and a touchdown. With the Philadelphia Eagles fighting to stay alive in the NFC East race, Alshon will look to play at the level he started the season at, averaging 14.4 fantasy points over his first four games (excluding Week 2 when he played six total snaps). This week, he gets a great matchup against the New York Giants. He is expected to spend most of his time against Janoris Jenkins, which is a 33 percent matchup advantage (third-best of the week), according to Pro Football Focus. However, he will also spend a lot of time against DeAndre Baker, who has the second-worst grade among cornerbacks that have played at least 20 percent of the season snaps. As a full unit, the Giants have surrendered the second-most fantasy points to opposing WRs. They have allowed at least one WR to score 16+ fantasy points in each of the past five weeks (Kenny Golladay, Amari Cooper, Jamison Crowder, Allen Robinson, Davante Adams and Allen Lazard). Start Jeffery with confidence in the fantasy playoffs.
