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. But Vereen's underlying skill set is impressive enough that a strong training camp could vault Vereen into a prominent role. At worst, Vereen will have value in PPR leagues (99 receptions in the last two years). (May 16)

Giants | Shane Vereen sees time in red zone (Wed Jun 24, 12:13 PM) - New York Giants RB Shane Vereen received snaps in the red zone during offseason workouts and was used all over the field as a receiver out of the backfield.

Our View: Vereen is going to be a playmaker for the Giants offense. He'll work as a change-of-pace back behind starter Rashad Jennings, but he could do more if called upon. His current ADP is RB31 (6.09) in 12-team PPR leagues, and Vereen could outperform that spot--even in a limited role.
