Sterling Shepard's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Sterling Shepard to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 121 projected fantasy points puts him at #36 behind Larry Fitzgerald and ahead of Marqise Lee. He has averaged 7.28 fantasy points in his past 16 games, which is slightly less than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 7.6 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is more valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #32 ranked wide receiver. He is slightly overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 92%, he is the #34 most highly owned wide receiver. Sterling Shepard is expected to come up short of last season's #30 fantasy position rank.
