Sterling Shepard's Fantasy Scouting Report

2018 FANTASY RECAP AND 2019 FANTASY PROJECTION

Sterling Shepard had a good, but not elite, year in fantasy. He was the #122 ranked fantasy player this season and the #30 WR. Even though he missed a few games, he played enough to make his overall fantasy rank better than what it is based on average fantasy points where he is the #42 WR. His production dropped throughout the season. In his first 5 games he averaged 9.1 FPs and that declined to 6.2 in his final 6 games. His standard deviation divided by his average is 0.63 which is close to the league ratio. He averaged 7.4 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 17 fantasy points. Sterling Shepard (2019 Season Projection: 67 Rec, 891 Yards, 4.4 TDs, 30 Rushyd) is projected to deliver comparable fantasy value in 2019 where his projection based rank has him as the #29 player at his position.

CURRENT CAREER TREND AND STATISTICS

His per game fantasy average is down 5 percent from two seasons ago.

PAST FANTASY PERFORMANCE (2017 TO 2018)

He was the #30 ranked fantasy WR based on total fantasy points. He averaged 7.3 FP per game (#42 ranked based on average). He is trending down based on lower per game fantasy ranking from 2017 to 2018. He is relatively stronger (stats bolded below) than weaker in more categories.

DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

His FanDuel average was 9.3 points and on DraftKings it was 11.8 per game. We used his second highest game as his ceiling and second lowest as his floor. On DraftKings his floor was 4.2 and on FanDuel it was 3.2 fantasy points. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 24.7 and 19.2 on FanDuel. He has had more bad FanDuel games (below average by 20%) than good games (20% above average), and the same was true on DraftKings. We are only including games where they were in the daily fantasy slate and played.
