  • Shepard caught 57 of 83 targets in 10 games this season, more or less living up to his draft-day billing on a per-game basis. The per-play output was somewhat disappointing, though -- only 6.9 YPT, down from 8.1 a year ago, and 10.1 yards per catch, despite playing with the more downfield oriented Daniel Jones. Moreover, Shepard's two concussions put him at greater risk to miss time in 2020 should he take another big hit. He should reprise his role as one of the team's top receivers next season, but Golden Tate and Darius Slayton will also get looks along with Kaden Smith, Evan Engram and Saquon Barkley.

  • Shepard caught all six of his targets for 76 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 41-35 win over the Redskins. Shepard displayed excellent chemistry with the returning Daniel Jones as he snared every ball that was thrown his way. He didn't make many big plays on the day, but his 23-yard touchdown in the first quarter was enough to propel him to a solid fantasy performance. Shepard, who has come alive over the last two weeks with 15 catches for 187 yards and a score, will look to finish strong next Sunday against the Eagles.

  • Shepard caught nine of 11 targets for 111 yards in Sunday's 36-20 win over the Dolphins. Shepard led the Giants in targets, catches and receiving yards, but he just missed getting into the end zone. The 26-year-old wideout reached 100 receiving yards for the second time in eight games played this season, but he's still stuck on two touchdowns. Now that he's healthy, Shepard will look to build off this performance when the Giants travel to Washington in Week 16.

  • Shepard caught four of seven targets for 28 yards in Monday night's 23-17 overtime loss to the Eagles. Shepard trailed only Darius Slayton in all major receiving categories, but his production was a far cry from the rookie's 5-154-2 line. With Eli Manning at quarterback, Shepard represents the most familiar face in New York's passing offense, which figures to benefit him as long as Daniel Jones (ankle) remains sidelined. Although that situation didn't bear much fruit Monday, Week 15's matchup against the lowly Dolphins could be different.

  • Shepard is expected to be on the receiving end of passes from Eli Manning and not Daniel Jones (ankle) on Monday at Philadelphia, Dan Benton of USA Today reports. Jones emerged from Week 13 with a sore right ankle, but a subsequent MRI revealed a "moderate" high-ankle sprain. Considered "week-to-week" by coach Pat Shurmur, Jones is slated to be inactive Monday, yielding his starting spot to Manning. Shepard thus will have a familiar face leading the offense versus an Eagles defense that the wide receiver has feasted against in six matchups, notching 35 catches for 457 yards and four touchdowns, per the Giants' official site.
