ESPN Fantasy Projection: Few players have enjoyed as high a target floor as Shepard over the past few seasons. Shepard has seen at least six targets in 25 of his past 27 games, the exceptions being a five-target outing and a four-target game he left injured. Unfortunately, the usage hasn't led to much fantasy success, as he's yet to finish a season better than 30th in fantasy points. The culprits? Injuries (missed at least four games in three of the past four seasons) and a short-area role (career 9.1 aDOT) that doesn't allow much work near the end zone (12 TDs over the past four seasons). The 27-year-old is headed for a reduced role (likely a significant one) in 2021 with Kenny Golladay and first-round pick Kadarius Toney now in the mix. Shepard will remain involved but is best valued as a low-ceiling bench option.
