WR: Sterling Shepard

Sterling Shepard (hamstring) practiced again on Thursday.

As was Darius Slayton (hamstring). The duo will likely remain "limited," but they are both on track to return against the Rams after missing the past two weeks. Their returns come as Kenny Golladay fails to practice with a knee issue. Shepard was soaking up targets before going down, but first-round rookie Kadarius Toney has erupted in his absence. Toney definitely deserves the highest fantasy rank for Week 6. Shepard has always run hot when healthy then struggled to produce once he was at less than 100 percent. He's a WR4 for this weekend's matchup.
