Giants WR Odell Beckham (quadricep, out) missed practice again Friday and is out for Week 15. Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram once again get a bump with Beckham sidelined.

Scouting Report

Week 15 vs. Tennessee Titans

Sterling Shepard led the team in targets with six last week while Odell Beckham Jr. (OBJ) was sidelined with an injury, but he only caught two balls for 17 yards. He did score a touchdown, which was encouraging, but the Giants have definitely become a running team behind their star rookie back Saquon Barkley.

OBJ is inactive again this week, so fantasy owners should consider Shepard a low-end WR2 option. While he’s struggled for much of the season, an increase in targets should give him additional value. The Titans allow the eighth-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this year, giving him some upside.
