Sterling Shepard Returns With A Bang On Thursday Night

New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard returned from a turf-toe injury on Thursday night against the Eagles with six catches for 59 yards and a touchdown. Shepard hadn't played since Week 2, but he made his return to the lineup felt and added another weapon in the passing game. It surely helped the New York offense after they put up just 112 passing yards last week. Shepard should be added in leagues where he was dropped for those seeking WR help, but he'll draw a tough matchup with Tampa Bay in Week 8. When completely healthy, though, Shepard should be one of quarterback Daniel Jones' top targets. The upside was evident in his first game back.

Sterling Shepard Activated From Injured Reserve

The New York Giants activated wide receiver Sterling Shepard (toe) from Injured Reserve on Thursday, and he'll be eligible to play on Thursday night against the Eagles. Shepard was expected to be one of the team's leading receivers in 2020, but he missed the last four games due to turf toe. In the first six quarters of the season, Shepard caught eight passes for 76 yards. He's the team's longest-tenured player and has started 54 of the 55 regular season games that he's played in and has 255 career catches for 2,838 yards and 17 touchdowns. The 27-year-old is certainly worth owning in 12-team leagues after leading the Giants in receiving last year, but he's a risky option for your starting lineups this week and could have his snap count limited in his first game back.

Sterling Shepard Back At Practice Tuesday

New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard (toe) returned to practice on Tuesday. If all goes well, the hope is that he will return from Injured Reserve to play Thursday night against the Eagles. Shepard led the team in receiving last year and has caught eight of his 10 targets for 76 yards in his two games in 2020, including a team-high six receptions in the season-opener. The fifth-year wideout has been out since suffering a turf toe injury in Week 2. It remains to be seen if the G-Men will ease Shepard back into the fold if he plays in Week 7, but you should check your waiver wire to see if he was dropped by his previous owner. When healthy, Shepard should be quarterback Daniel Jones' top receiving target. The matchup is a good one for New York's pass-catchers, too, as Philly's D has allowed the ninth-most fantasy points to receivers through six weeks.
