Player Notes
Sep 16 7:53pm ET

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) is still going through the concussion protocol but has been cleared to practice in a non-contact jersey.

Fantasy Spin: Shepard needs to be cleared by doctors before he is allowed to play, so fantasy players should monitor his practice participation this week. He is the team's top receiver when he is healthy but may only be a No. 3 fantasy receiver or flex option when he returns.

Sep 15 11:43am ET

The New York Giants have declared TE Garrett Dickerson, QB Alex Tanney, WR Sterling Shepard, WR Darius Slayton, RB Paul Perkins, OG Chad Slade and OL Eric Smith inactive for Week 2.

From TheHuddle

Sep 13 3:13pm ET

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion), WR Darius Slayton (hamstring) and TE Garrett Dickerson (quad) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 2 against the Buffalo Bills. WR Cody Latimer (calf) was upgraded to a limited practice Friday, Sept. 13, and is listed as questionable. LB Markus Golden (hip), DL Dexter Lawrence (shoulder) and OG Kevin Zeitler (shoulder) all participated fully in practice Friday and have been removed from the injury report.

From TheHuddle

Sep 13 1:03pm ET

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) on Friday, Sept. 14, was ruled out of the team's Week 2 game vs. the Buffalo Bills as he recovers from a concussion sustained in the season opener.

Fantasy Spin: The run of bad news has extended into the season for the Giants' WR corps, and hopefully Shepard owners already had a backup plan in place. Cody Latimer, Bennie Fowler and Russell Shepard now top the N.Y. WR depth chart with Golden Tate serving a suspension, but also should mean TE Evan Engram maintains a strong share of the team's targets.

From TheHuddle

Sep 13 12:50pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 2 against the Bills. That was the expectation, as Shepard had yet to be cleared to practice this week. With Golden Tate still serving a suspension and now Shepard ruled out, the G-Men will likely use Bennie Fowler, Russell Shepard and Cody Latimer in three-receiver sets against a Buffalo defense that is very good at shutting down the passing game. It doesn't bode well for the Giants offense as a whole this Sunday, and they'll likely lean heavily on running back Saquon Barkley and tight end Evan Engram. Hopefully Shepard can get cleared ahead of Week 3. Make sure you remove him from your starting lineups.

Sep 12 3:30pm ET

New York Giants wide receivers Sterling Shepard (concussion) and Cody Latimer (calf) both missed practice on Thursday. As things stand now, it's not looking good for Shepard's chances of suiting up in Week 2 in a very difficult matchup against the Bills. With Latimer also questionable to play, the G-Men may be sending out Bennie Fowler, Russell Shepard and Cody Core in three-receiver sets. Yuck. Expect running back Saquon Barkley and tight end Evan Engram to be heavily targeted. Buffalo's defense/special teams has high-end potential this weekend.

From RotoBaller

Sep 12 3:23pm ET

New York Giants WR Cody Latimer (calf), WR Sterling Shepard (concussion), WR Darius Slayton (hamstring) and TE Garrett Dickerson (quad) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 12. DL Dexter Lawrence (shoulder) was limited, while OG Kevin Zeitler (shoulder) and LB Markus Golden (hip) were upgraded to full participation.

From TheHuddle

Sep 12 2:03pm ET

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) was out of practice working on the side Thursday, Sept. 12, for the second straight day.

Fantasy Spin: Shepard is working through the concussion protocol and fantasy GMs will likely need to monitor his progress through Saturday to see if he's taken enough strides to play in Week 2.

From TheHuddle

Sep 11 1:43pm ET

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) is working to the side Wednesday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Spin: Shepard had six grabs for 42 yards in Week 1, and he can run as a solid WR3 against the Buffalo Bills if healthy.

From TheHuddle

Sep 11 1:40pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard (concussion) is on the field going through protocol steps on Wednesday and looks to be in good spirits. Shepard might be limited in practice, at best, but it's a good sign for his availability in Week 2 against the Bills. Even if Shepard plays, though, he'll be more of a risky WR4 against one of the better defenses against the pass. If he's forced to sit out, it'll mean more targets for Bennie Fowler, Cody Latimer and tight end Evan Engram. Keep track of Shepard's practice status throughout the week.

From RotoBaller

Sep 9 6:23pm ET

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) has been diagnosed with a concussion and is going through the concussion protocol.

Fantasy Spin: Shepard will need medical clearance in order to play in Week 2, so fantasy players should monitor the situation during the week. He had a decent role in the passing game in Week 1 and could be a No. 3 receiver this week if he plays despite the tough matchup.

From TheHuddle

Sep 9 2:53pm ET

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (head) 'may be dealing with a concussion,' according to head coach Pat Shurmur.

Fantasy Spin: Shepard will almost certainly be placed in the league's concussion protocol - if he hasn't been put there already - and cannot be counted on to play in Week 2. With Golden Tate still sidelined, the Giants could be down to Cody Latimer and Bennie Fowler as their starting wideouts in Week 2. If that happens, Evan Engram could be even busier than he was in the opener when he saw 14 targets.

From TheHuddle

Sep 9 2:50pm ET

New York Giants head coach Pat Shurmur said that wide receiver Sterling Shepard (head) "may be dealing with a concussion." The team will likely put him through the concussion protocol this week, and we won't have an idea of whether he'll suit up in Week 2 against the Bills until his practice status is released later this week. The 26-year-old caught six of his seven targets for 42 yards in the Week 1 loss to the Cowboys. Shepard is shaping up as a risky fantasy option in a tough matchup against the Bills. If he's inactive, Bennie Fowler, Cody Latimer and tight end Evan Engram will be the main pass-catchers for quarterback Eli Manning.

From RotoBaller

Sep 9 12:13am ET

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught six of his seven targets for 42 yards in a 35-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1.

Fantasy Spin: Shepard finished third on the team in targets, but a lack of big plays resulted in an ordinary stat line. He should have a steady role in the offense, but WR3 numbers are probably his ceiling.

From TheHuddle

Sep 8 8:20pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard caught six passes against the Cowboys on Sunday but didnt do much of fantasy relevance with them. He finished the day with 42 yards receiving, which would have been OK in PPR leagues, but he was targeted less than Cody Latimer, and the lack of downfield passes thrown his way might suggest a lower ceiling than many were hoping for. Its not time to panic and cut bait after one game, especially one in which the Giants threw 48 times, but the road wont get easier next week if the Bills decide to shadow him with cornerback TreDavious White.

From RotoBaller

Sep 4 10:40am ET

New York Giants wide receiverSterling Shepard will likely be an overlooked option in Week 1. The Cowboys have a stellar defense, and their young corners Byron Jones and Chidobe Awuzie were impressive last year. However, their linebackers are even better and are likely to limit tight end Evan Engram, so quarterback Eli Manning's passes will have to go somewhere. Dont expect a massive week from Shepard, but he has PPR upside since hes a good bet to end up as the top option in a Giants passing attack that will need to throw a lot in order to have a chance.

From RotoBaller

Aug 25 8:33pm ET

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard (thumb) is 'good to go' for Week 1, according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com.

Fantasy Spin: New York's passing attack is going to limit his upside, but Shepard should still be a volume-based WR3.

From TheHuddle

Aug 25 8:20pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard had been trending in the right direction with his recovery from a fractured thumb, but getting the official word is always nice. The 4th year receiver caught 66 passes for 872 yards and four touchdowns last year. With Odell Beckham Jr gone and Golden Tate suspended for the first four games, Shepard and Evan Engram should be the two main targets on a Giants team that figures to be trailing often. Saquon Barkley will obviously be a major focal point of the offense, and finger injuries are concerning for receivers, but Shepard is in a great situation with not a lot of competition, which makes him a WR3 with solid upside.

From RotoBaller

Aug 25 12:45pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard has been a camp standout despite breaking his thumb on the first day of training camp. Wearing the yellow non-contact jersey and all, Shepard has been running a full practice schedule, with the only restriction being to catch the ball with only his right hand. Shepard looks to be, when healthy, a top-level wide receiver and the Giants are looking for him to be cleared for their Week 1 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys.

From RotoBaller

Aug 25 12:33pm ET

New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard(hand) had his first full-contact practice since breaking his right hand early in training camp. Shepard, who is entering his fourth season with the Giants, has been sporting a yellow non-contact jersey, prohibiting him from any form of contact. Doctors have cleared Shepard to practice unrestricted, so expect him to potentially take the field Week 1 against the Dallas Cowboys.
