NYG WR Sterling Shepard - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 7 vs. Carolina Panthers
Sterling Shepard returned to action last week against the Rams and was once again heavily targeted. He wound up catching 10 of 14 balls for 76 yards. When healthy – which has been a huge issue throughout his career – Shepard is a PPR demon with a high floor each week due to his target share.
This week, Shepard faces a Panthers defense that ranks 11th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. Shepard should continue to get a ton of targets, particularly with Kadarius Toney and Kenny Golladay likely to be absent. Start him as a high-floor WR2 option in PPR formats.
Update: Looks like Shepard is out, so be sure to get him out of your lineups.
