What You Need to Know:

  • Shepard tore his left Achilles’ tendon on Dec. 19.
  • Studies have found that it generally takes NFL players nearly a year to return to play after surgery – and sometimes longer. And they don’t perform as well in their 1st season back.
  • The Giants drafted WR Wan’Dale Robinson in the 2nd round.


Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

There’s obviously much more we could say about Shepard, but none of it will matter unless he can get back on the field early in the season. And that doesn’t seem likely. A new Giants regime with enough veteran wideouts and a shiny new slot receiver likely doesn’t help Shepard’s chances.

Sterling Shepard, WR NYG

10:30pm EDT 9/6/22

Sterling Shepard "ready to go" for Week 1

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (Achilles) said Tuesday that he's "ready to go" for this weekend's opener vs. the Titans. ESPN's Jordan Raanan confirms that Shepard "fully plans on playing" on Sunday. It's a remarkably quick turnaround for Shepard, who tore his Achilles last December and was just activated from the PUP list 2 weeks ago. Shepard shouldn't be in Week 1 fantasy lineups, but he's worth stashing on benches and complicates the outlooks of WRs Kadarius Toney, Wan'Dale Robinson and Kenny Golladay.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard has been activated from the PUP list and will practice on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan. Shepard tore his left Achilles a little over 8 months ago. "Have heard only positives about Shepard's rehab," Raanan tweeted. "He's looked good running and cutting on the side in recent weeks." It's still uncertain when Shepard will be ready for game action -- and whether he can rediscover pre-injury form. We'll keep a close eye on him but aren't ready to consider him a fantasy-draft target.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (Achilles) has resumed jogging, he told insider Josina Anderson. He's working back from December's torn left Achilles and is still seemingly a ways off from getting full medical clearance. We're not expecting Shepard to be ready for the start of the season but will continue to monitor his progress.
