Giants WR Sterling Shepard suffered a torn Achilles during Sunday’s loss to the Cowboys and is done for the season.
Very unfortunate for Shepard, who had been battling injury all season and now is not only lost for the rest of 2021, but almost certainly will miss the start of the 2022 season. Shepard is still under contract with the Giants for two more seasons but will have missed 20 games in the last three seasons.
NYG WR Sterling Shepard - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 15 vs. Dallas Cowboys
Sterling Shepard returned to action last week, but caught just two of four targets for 27 yards in a loss to the Chargers. Shepard is typically a target hog, but the poor quarterback play in New York hasn’t been good for any of the Giants’ offensive weapons.
This week, Shepard faces a Cowboys defense that ranks 28th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. He has some upside in PPR formats since he tends to accrue targets, but this offense looks like a mess – especially the passing game. Look elsewhere if at all possible.
