Eagles' Russell Shepard laying claim to No. 2 WR job


Eagles' Russell Shepard laying claim to No. 2 WR job

Jeremy Maclin is out for the season. Riley Cooper @RileyCooper_14 is currently away from the team, and his spot on the roster appears tenuous. The battle to be the Eagles' No. 2 wide receiver should be hotly contested throughout camp. But according to CSN Philly's Reuben Frank, the job is Russell Shepard's to lose.
Shepard, an undrafted rookie from LSU, has been working with the Eagles' first-string offense during camp, getting snaps ahead of Arrelious Benn @ArreliousBenn and Damaris Johnson. Frank writes that Shepard has "certainly opened a lot of eyes" with his play.

Fantasy Analysis:

Shepard was a jack of all trades, king of none at LSU. He came to the campus as a sought-after quarterback, but he played running back, wide receiver, and cornerback during his time there. It's too soon to tell if he will be of any consequence for fantasy owners this season, but he's another name to watch.
