Engram (knee) didn't have an injury designation on the Giants final injury report ahead of Monday Night Football against the Falcons. He is set to make his return after turning in a full week of practice.
Shepard hasn't been much of an offensive weapon during his five-year career, with 2016 being his best season as a pro (40 targets, 23 receptions, 341 yards, 2 TDs), and it's unlikely he'll be much of a factor as a Giant. The Giants already have Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard, and Evan Engram as their main target hogs. Shepard, if he isn't released before the season starts, will be nothing more than a depth chart body/special teams player. You can avoid him for fantasy purposes.
Looking to overhaul their receiving room, the Carolina Panthers have acquired Torrey Smith from the Eagles in exchange for cornerback Daryl Worley, sources told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport on Friday.
Smith rolls into Carolina with a chance to make an impact for an offense that also boasts Devin Funchess, Russell Shepard and second-year speedster Curtis Samuel at the position. Smith isn't the deep threat he once was, but he gives quarterback Cam Newton an experienced downfield target to play with.
Smith isn't a fantasy factor right now, but it's not inconceivable that he could have a Ted Ginn-type year in Carolina.
