From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 25): Vereen was barely used against the Eagles and it was the team's best offensive performance of the year. He's only on the fringe of rosterable in redraft PPR leagues.

Week 4: at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

All RB vs TB

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs DET (6 / 28 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 27 / 0 rec)

Much like against Dallas in Week 1, Shane Vereen's involvement was limited to check down passes and conservative draw plays on third and long situations. For the Giants offense, such down and distances became the norm in this game, as a combination of penalties and negative plays forced their hand. Vereen looked spry at times and was a nice outlet for his quarterback. He made a crucial error on a fourth down play, however, not running his route past the sticks. The Lions made the tackle and forced a turnover on downs as the Giants were trying to claw their way back.

2017 Week 1 vs DAL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 10 / 9 / 51 / 0 rec)

Shane Vereen was the leading receiver for the Giants in terms of receptions and was salvagable in PPR leagues but this performance was as a result of many checkdown passes. The Giants were not able to throw downfield much in this game and thus Vereen got his hands on many quick outs from Manning when he was under fire. Vereen often had little or no room to work with after the catch as the Cowboys played 7 in coverage for most of thiis game. Vereen did his best, using his quickness in screen passes and flat passes to get as many yards after the catch as possible. His hands looked solid and very dependable. He was critical for Manning in the passing game as his offensive line was giving up quick pressure too easily, leading to quick throws to avoid sacks. Vereen never got much attention in the redzone and was not a threat to score but the entire Giants offense was lackluster on Sunday. He was more involved in the passing game than any other back as is his usual role, so could be a decent play in PPR leagues only if you are in a tight spot but nothing more.
