The absence of Odell Beckham Jr. will thrust Shepard into the No. 1 role for the Giants.

OBJ’s absence will free up roughly 28% of the Giants’ target share from last season, which is encouraging for Shephard’s outlook as he was second on the team last year in market share of Air Yards (24%) and target share (18%).

The Giants did add Golden Tate to the roster, but Shepard is a good bet to lead the Giants in targets and currently has a cheap draft cost. — Justin Bailey
