Sterling Shepard injury update: Fantasy implications for the New York Giants

Eli Manning will be without a key weapon in Week 11. We break down the fantasy implications

The New York Giants offense has been a disaster much of this season, and it does not get much better in Week 11. Wide receiver Sterling Shepard has been declared inactive for Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs due to migraines. Shepard practiced all week, but was added to the injury report on Saturday as questionable.

Fantasy impact: Shepard and tight end Evan Engram were the only two viable fantasy options among the Giants pass catchers. Engram remains a must start, and has some solid flex value as well. Additionally, Orleans Darkwa is going to get a ton of work. The winds are picking up at the Meadowlands, getting up over 20 miles per hour. If the wind continues through the game, it will likely be a heavy run affair. The Giants offensive line is a mess, but Darkwa and Engram remain solid starts vs. a somewhat porous Chiefs defense.
