Summary

Shane Vereen flashed in four seasons in New England, but never secured a consistent role. Fantasy owners salivated at the idea of Vereen being unleashed on a new team, and the Giants seemed an ideal fit considering how poorly their incumbent runners performed. A year later, it looks like Vereen is exactly the guy the Patriots thought he was; his first season as a Giant was a mirror image of his Patriots' career. In 16 games, Vereen ran for 260 yards (4.3 per carry) and caught 59 receptions and 495 yards (8.4) to go along with four touchdowns. He's valuable to the offense, particularly in the passing game. But he's not -- nor likely will he ever be -- a starting NFL running back. In points-per-reception formats, Vereen is a fringe utility option but don't overvalue his role. He's a good but not great player. (August 28)
