Scouting Report

Week 7 at Atlanta Falcons

Sterling Shepard struggled along with the rest of the Giants passing offense – outside of Saquon Barkley, last week in a loss to the Eagles. He was held to only 37 yards on three receptions, though he was targeted seven times. Shepard has been targeted at least that many times in all but one game this season, solidifying his role as a viable threat opposite Odell Beckham Jr. in the Giants passing attack.

This week, Shepard has upside against a Falcons defense that has been a sieve this season, allowing the fourth-most fantasy points per game to opposing receivers, and the second-most total points per game. Shepard is worth considering as a low-end WR2 option in most leagues, especially for those needing bye week help.
