Expert 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Did you know that Jaylen Waddle's 77 receptions are the second most for any player in NFL history through the first 12 games of his career? The only player in history with more receptions through that time period is Odell Beckham Jr. during his historic rookie season where he had 91 receptions through 12 games. Waddle is also fifth in the entire NFL in receptions this season and his 759 receiving yards are good enough for second among all rookies. After being ranked around the WR45 in pre-draft ADP, Waddle is now the WR14 on the year through 12 weeks and he's helping lead fantasy rosters to championships. He's an absolute home-run start every single week at this point and he deserves to be viewed as a mid-range/low-end WR2 in this matchup against the Giants.When Shepard is healthy, he's absolutely a viable low-end WR3 every single week that soaks up targets. However, Shepard has had a major issue staying on the field his entire career. He's only played in 5 games so far in 2021 and fantasy managers have had to move on to more readily available options across the fantasy football landscape. With that being said, there is some optimism that Shepard could return to the starting lineup in Week 13 against the Dolphins. He's been battling a quad injury recently, but it sounds like he could be close to returning here. In his first game back, with Glennon as his QB, it's probably best to leave Shepard on your bench. However, he is worth picking up and stashing for the playoff push because of his target share when he is active. For Week 13, we can view Shepard as a low-end FLEX if he suits up.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Waddle is averaging 15.3 fantasy points over his last 4 games and the Giants are just 15th against fantasy wide receivers over the last 5 weeks. Waddle should be a high-end WR2 to low-end WR1 at home this week.
