Panthers WR Russell Shepard (shoulder) took full practice reps again Friday.

Scouting Report

Week 9 vs. Atlanta Falcons

Shepard had his moments with the Bucs last season, catching 23 passes for 341 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a limited role. He should get more of an opportunity starting this week after the Panthers traded Kelvin Benjamin to the Bills, giving Shepard some long-term upside.

This week, we have Shepard ranked as a low-end WR3 option in most leagues with upside against a very average Falcons pass defense that is tied for 16th in the league in passing touchdowns allowed. Shepard will be challenged by rookie Curtis Samuel for playing time, but he possesses more outside skills than the rookie and should earn the WR2 spot on the team.
