The Newark Star-Ledger's Zack Rosenblatt believes Giants WR Sterling Shepard (toe) is "unlikely" to play against Washington on Sunday. He's eligible to come off IR this week, but a Week 7 return looks more likely. Darius Slayton, Golden Tate and Evan Engram will continue to operate as the top 3 options in the Giants' passing game.
Giants WR Sterling Shepard tore his left ACL at the end of Monday night's loss to the Cowboys and will miss the rest of the season. It's an especially tough blow for a guy who just came back from a December Achilles' tear and was leading a disappointing Giants WR corps. Shepard's injury helps the opportunity for Kadarius Toney, if the 2nd-year wideout can get healthy and get his stuff together. Otherwise, it's David Sills V, Richie James and the ghost of Kenny Golladay. We'll see about Shepard's status heading into 2023, which will be his age-30 season.
Giants WR Sterling Shepard left late in the 4th quarter of Monday night's loss to the Cowboys after injuring his left knee. It was a non-contact injury, and Shepard left the field on a cart. This doesn't look good for a guy coming off a December Achilles' tendon tear.
Giants WR Sterling Shepard totaled only 34 yards on 6 catches in a Week 2 win over Carolina. He paced the team with 10 targets and now owns a ~25% target share through 2 games. The results weren’t great this week, but it’s impressive to see him playing full-time snaps after the 2021 Achilles tear. Recall that the veteran was only activated from the PUP list on August 24. While we might see him round into form in the coming weeks, it’s still tough to get excited about anyone alongside Daniel Jones.
Giants WR Sterling Shepard (Achilles) was limited in practice all week but isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll play in Sunday’s opener vs. the Titans, a little less than 9 months after tearing his Achilles. We’ll see exactly how big a role Shepard is ready for, but he shouldn’t be in Week 1 fantasy lineups. His availability does make WR Wan’Dale Robinson a riskier bet.
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.
