Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Jeudy is simply not someone that you can trust right now with the way that this offense is looking in Denver. He's not seeing enough targets to be relevant and he's being outproduced by Patrick. If Patrick misses this game with his injury, Jeudy gets a slight boost, but it's not going to be enough to view him as anything more than a low-end FLEX play.Shepard entered back into the lineup last week and immediately saw a large percentage of the targets go his way. He's always soaked up targets in this offense, but his health has been the main concern for his long-term fantasy outlook. In this offense, it's hard to trust any one receiver, but Shepard should be the Giants WR that we're looking to start this week. It's not going to be pretty, as the Giants offense is projected to struggle mightily, but Shepard should see enough volume to be viewed as a mid-range WR3.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After totaling at least 55 yards in each of his first four games, Jeudy has fallen off the fantasy map, as he's failed to top 32 yards in each of his last two games, though we should give him a pass for the game last week that was played in a blizzard. The Chargers are not a matchup that you should be expecting a wide receiver to get back on track, as they've allowed the 10th-fewest points to the receiver position. It's not just a lack of volume, either, as they've allowed just 1.65 PPR points per target, which is tied for the sixth-lowest mark in the league. He'll see Desmond King in coverage much of the day, the Chargers slot cornerback who's allowed 50-of-61 passing for 531 yards and two touchdowns since the start of last year. That's a ridiculously high 82.0 percent catch-rate, though the receptions have amounted to just 10.6 yards a pop, so he'll need volume to crack out some numbers. If Tim Patrick can't play with his hamstring injury, Jeudy would likely be a candidate for six-plus targets and be considered a decent WR4. If Patrick does play, Jeudy would fall into riskier territory with his recent lack of targets.Welcome back to the lineup, Mr. Shepard. Taking away the game he needed to leave against the Bears, Shepard has now seen at least six targets in each of his last 18 games. That's crazy, right? He's the No. 1 receiver for the Giants with that target floor, even if Slayton may have a higher ceiling. The Buccaneers opponents have thrown the ball 64.1 percent of the time, which is the fourth-most in the NFL, and it's allowed for plenty of opportunities for wide receivers. That's led to 11 different receivers finishing with 10.5 or more PPR points, though just four of them have topped 14.3 PPR points. Receivers have been targeted 19.3 times per game against the Bucs, which is enough for Shepard to see his six-plus targets fairly confidently, especially since the run game will have no chance this week. Shepard should be considered a WR4 option who comes with a better floor than most in that range, though his ceiling is a bit limited.
