Summary

Shane Vereen's career stats belie the excitement fantasy owners have for the 5th year runner. In four seasons as a Patriot, Vereen only started 8 games and ran just 217 times for 907 yards (4.2 per carry). Yet, fantasy owners are always buying into a breakout season for the former California Bear. A combination of injuries and Bill Belichick's propensity to mix and match his offensive players based on game script have kept a lid on Vereen's production. Thankfully, Vereen joins a New York Giants team desperate for help rebuilding a ground game that's routinely finished at the bottom of the league. The most likely outcome if a three-headed committee alongside Andre Williams and Rashad Jennings. Vereen's underlying skill set is impressive enough that a strong training camp could vault him into a prominent role. At worst, Vereen will have value in PPR leagues (99 receptions in the last two years). (August 16)
