Vacchiano didn't really hold back on Shepard despite naming him the top WR. He went on to say so far in his career Shepard's done nothing to suggest he's capable of being a top WR. He's been a possession-like slot receiver who sometimes erupts for a big game. But he needs to have those big games consistently now. We rank Shepard 41st on our WR list and available in the eighth round in 12-team leagues.
