Draft note
by John Paulsen
The Giants gave Shepard $41 million after signing Golden Tate to a deal worth almost $38 million, so it looks like this will be a 1a/1b situation in terms of targets, and since Tate is typically a high-target player, he could out-target Shepard this season. Shepard’s production certainly increased when Odell Beckham was sidelined. In 11 games over the last three seasons without Beckham, Shepard averaged 5.3 catches for 68 yards and 0.18 touchdowns. Those are low-end WR2 numbers and he would have some upside from there if he simply posted his three-year touchdown rate of 0.33 per game. That would make him a solid fantasy WR2. The primary issue is Tate and how many of Beckham’s targets he’ll soak up. Beckham averaged 10.4 targets per game in the last three seasons while Tate averaged 7.5 T/G in his last two seasons with the Lions. Shepard averaged 6.3 T/G with Beckham in the lineup and 8.5 T/G without. With the Giants likely to go run-heavy, will Shepard get enough volume to post fantasy WR2 numbers? He has been a solid fantasy WR3 with Beckham in the lineup and that’s about where he’s being drafted right now. The other red flag is that Eli Manning’s production is tailing off.

NYG WR Sterling Shepard - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 at Philadelphia Eagles

Sterling Shepard caught three passes for 40 yards and a touchdown last week in a lopsided loss to the Packers. Shepard was targeted seven times and has now seen 16 targets in his two games back from concussion protocol. Shepard only has 55 receiving yards during that span, but it’s good to see him remain a focal point of the passing game after so much time off.

This week, Shepard has some WR3 upside in a nice matchup. The Eagles rank 22nd in aFPA to opposing wide receivers this season and Golden Tate is once again questionable with a head injury of his own. Even if Tate returns to action, Shepard is still likely the primary receiver in the offense and should be more productive against a struggling secondary.
