Week 11: vs Kansas City Chiefs

All RB vs KC

FBG says: Great matchup. For as bad as the defensive effort has been over the last few weeks, the offense of the Giants has a lot to still prove. Orleans Darkwa is a big part of this as the running back is taking advantage of the opportunity given to him due to the injury and ineffectiveness of Paul Perkins. Darkwa over his last two games going up is averaging 4.7 yards per carry. However, it is to be noted that both of these were very good matchups for Darkwa as he faced two of the worst run defenses in football in the 49ers and Rams who are both in the bottom ten against the run this season. The Chiefs rushing defense has really struggled this season as they are allowing 131 yards per game rushing to opponents this season and are allowing 155 yards per game over their last three contest. The Chiefs did cut Roy Miller after an off-the-field issue and will promote Rakeem Nunez-Sanchez who has also struggled this season at defensive end. Reggie Ragland at linebacker and Daniel Sorensen have both been defensive liabilities for this team.

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.
