Summary

Vereen had some injury issues in 2013, and is still dealing with a wrist fracture that - according to ESPN Boston - is still healing. The hope is he will be ready for training camp. Vereen is a serious threat to steal plenty of carries from current starter Stevan Ridley and has the ability to both run through the tackles and catch balls out of the backfield. For now we expect him to split carries but he'll make up a lot of yards receiving. Vereen could also take over if need be full time. For now we see him as a solid RB2 whose combined yardage will make fantasy owners very happy. (May 22)

Latest News

Patriots | James White gets first-team reps (Thu Aug 14, 02:00 AM) - New England Patriots RB James White saw a number of reps with the first-team offense in practice Wednesday, Aug. 13, with RB Stevan Ridley seeing most of his reps with the second-team offense. RB Shane Vereen also saw some reps with the top unit.

Our View: Message! White has been a standout player for the Pats this offseason. The rookie back from Wisconsin is a good all-purpose runner who has impressed his QB Tom Brady. We'll see if he can get more involved than some think. Both Shane Vereen and Stevan Ridley are in the final year of their contract, so White could be a featured player for the Pats in the near future.
