NYG WR Sterling Shepard - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Dallas Cowboys
Sterling Shepard had a great game against the Ravens last week, as the lone bright spot for the Giants offense, catching nine of 12 balls thrown his way for 77 yards and a touchdown. Shepard has struggled along with the rest of the team this season, but he’s quietly averaged 5.3 receptions per game, giving him a decent floor in deep PPR formats.
This week, Shepard has a nice matchup against a Cowboys defense that ranks dead last in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. Shepard is risky because the whole Giants offense has struggled for much of the year, but assuming the Giants will need to throw the ball, the conditions are there for Shepard to at least put up WR3 numbers, especially in PPR formats.
