Sterling Shepard Fantasy Outlook
This latest injury update has big implications for Sterling Shepard and the rest of New York's receiving corps.
On the first drive, Toney caught 3-of-3 targets for 36 yards before exiting the contest. Shepard is the next in line on New York's depth chart, and could see an uptick in targets throughout the game.
The Giants are already without Kenny Golladay and Shepard ranks third on the team in targets (22). He's turned those 22 targets into 18 receptions for 223 yards and one score. Having only played in three games thus far, Shepard leads the team with an average of 73.4 receiving yards per contest.
