As expected, WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets. He visited a concussion specialist in Pittsburgh this week and is reportedly a candidate for IR. Shepard's absence again leaves Golden Tate and rookie Darius Slayton as New York's top 2 WRs this weekend.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard went to Pittsburgh on Wednesday to meet with Dr. Joseph Maroon, a neurologist and concussion specialist, according to SNY's Ralph Vacchiano. The team is reportedly considering placing Shepard on IR because of the issue. The wideout has sustained 2 concussions this season. He seemed near a return last week but then experienced concussion symptoms again. That kept him out Monday night and prompted the Pittsburgh trip. You can hang on to Shepard now (if possible) until we learn more, but you also must plan as though you won't get him back to your fantasy football roster this season. Shepard's continued absence would help the target outlook for Giants rookie WR Darius Slayton.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard has re-entered the concussion protocol and won't play against the Cowboys on Monday night. Get him out of Week 9 fantasy lineups and upgrade WRs Golden Tate and Darius Slayton.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) isn't listed on the final Week 9 injury report and will return for Monday night's game against the Cowboys. He's back on the WR3 map. This will be the 1st time this season that the Giants have Shepard, Golden Tate, Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram on the field together.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) put in a full practice on Thursday. He still needs final medical clearance, according to The Athletic's Dan Duggan, but Shepard is on track to return for Monday night's game against the Cowboys. He averaged 8.5 targets over the first 4 games of the season, although 3 of those came without WR Golden Tate. Consider both Shepard and Tate WR3s for Week 9.

Injury Predictor

Shepard played every game his rookie season and with OBJ on the sideline and Marshall still learning the offense, Shepard is practicing with the "ones" team. Although he looks to be a third option in the regular season, he is building his chemistry and getting plenty of reps with Manning.
