The only question is if Shepard, who logged 95 percent of the offensive snaps last season, will see his playing time decrease. Something has to give if the Giants are going to diversify their offensive personnel, and it seems reasonable for Shepard to sacrifice some of his snaps to accommodate more two-tight end sets.

Shepard had an excellent spring, once again catching everything thrown his way and looking more explosive. His focus is increasing his yards after catch after averaging just 3.9 last season. It's entirely possible that Shepard will improve as a player but not see a significance jump in his stats due to a deeper and more balanced offense, the story said, but that won't help fantasy owners.
