Sterling Shepard “expects to play” Week 6 vs Rams

New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard says he “expects to play” Week 6 vs the Los Angeles Rams (per Doug Kyed)

Fantasy Impact: The Giants could certainly use Shepard if he is healthy enough to play Week 6. The Giants will be without Saquon Barkley and both Kenny Golladay and Daniel Jones have yet to get the starting nod. It’ll be interesting to see where the Giants line Shepard up given the emergence of Kadarius Toney who has done most of his damage out of the slot, which is where Shepard tends to work. If Shepard does play Week 6, fantasy managers should expect him to rank as a WR3/4 against the Rams.
