Giants' Russell Shepard: Hurts ankle Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shepard injured his ankle during Sunday's 17-0 loss to the Titans, Ryan Dunleavy of NJ.com reports.

Shepard said he's not worried about missing time, despite leaving the locker room in a walking boot, per Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record. With Odell Beckham (quadriceps) absent the last two games, Shepard has been targeted eight times, hauling in three of them for 39 yards and one touchdown. It's unclear if Beckham is trending toward a return, but Shepard now seems to be in danger of sitting out with his own injury.

Giants' Russell Shepard: Wildly inefficient in loss to Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shepard caught two of nine targets, collecting 37 receiving yards during Sunday's 17-0 loss to Tennessee.

Shepard has struggled mightily efficiency-wise over the past two weeks, hauling in just four of his 15 targets with Odell Beckham Jr. (quad) out of the lineup, compared to a catch rate of 68.4 percent through Week 13. The absence of OBJ has helped bolster Shepard's involvement in the passing game somewhat -- 7.5 targets per game over the past two weeks, 6.3 season average prior -- but that uptick in volume has failed to cultivate fantasy production, as he's gone for single-digits in PPR scoring in both of those outings. The third-year wideout has been anything but explosive of late, failing to exceed 37 receiving yards in seven straight games after five times exceeding 45 yards through his first seven outings of the year. In Week 16, he and the Giants receiving corps will face off against a Colts defense that refused to allow a single Cowboys pass catcher to eclipse 45 receiving yards in its last time out.

Giants' Russell Shepard: In line for another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shepard will start at receiver Sunday against the Titans with Odell Beckham (quadriceps) inactive.

While Beckham was sidelined for the first time all season in Week 14 against the Redskins, Shepard entered the starting lineup and played 26 offensive snaps, his most since Week 5. Shepard only drew four targets during the contest, but made his lone reception count, taking it in for an 11-yard touchdown. Though Beckham's second straight absence again opens up extra snaps for Shepard, he doesn't project to see enough volume to make for a comfortable option in fantasy lineups.

Giants' Russell Shepard: Hauls in touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shepard brought one of four targets for 11 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 40-16 win over Washington.

Shepard benefited from increased targets with Odell Beckham (quadriceps) sidelined, and managed to salvage his fantasy day by reeling in his only catch for a touchdown. With Beckham likely to retake the field against the Titans in Week 15, Shepard will compete with Corey Coleman for snaps as the Giants' No. 4 wideout going forward.

Giants' Russell Shepard: Starting for injured Beckham
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shepard will enter the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Redskins with Odell Beckham (quadriceps) inactive.

Though Shepard will slot in at wideout alongside Sterling Shepard on the Giants' opening snap, the former isn't a lock to be featured in two or three-receiver formations throughout the contest. Bennie Fowler has played more snaps than Russell Shepard in each of the past five games and may represent a safer bet to produce sans Beckham, though none of the Giants' depth wideouts represent high-percentage fantasy plays. Expect Sterling Shepard, tight end Evan Engram and running back Saquon Barkley to draw the overwhelming share of quarterback Eli Manning's passes on the day.
