Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 2 vs NO (14 / 42 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 24 / 0 rec)

Shane Vereen got a lot of the redzone work when the Giants were near the goal line but failed to secure a score. Vereen was a lot more productive than his teammate Jennings however and got slightly more work on Sunday. Jennings was only a handful of yards short on two different occasions to the goal line but unfortunately couldn't punch it in against the Saints. The Saints defense stiffened on the goal line and they didn't allow any push. Vereen worked well in open space and had a nice run on a short toss right from the gun. Vereen also showed excellent quickness on a screen pass as he weaved in between several defenders for the first. He did fumble the ball on an inside handoff however as a defender caught him from behind and jarred the ball loose. Vereen continued to pick up solid gains from the shotgun on delays and inside handoffs up the middle with quickness and sufficient blocking up front.

2016 Week 1 vs DAL (6 / 38 / 0 rush, 5 / 3 / 23 / 0 rec)

Shane Vereen looked very agile and quick on the field against Dallas. Vereen was used primarily in passing situations as an "H-back" role for Manning. Vereen was excellent at finding space when his quarterback needed an escape, running good routes and knowing when to get open against the defense. Vereen got a lot of work on the ground with inside handoffs from the shotgun. He also ran effectively with draws and delayed runs that took advantage of any aggressive defensive line play. Vereen dropped one pass and had a decent run up the middle negated by a questionable Giants holding penalty but this didn't take away from his solid performance. Vereen ran between the guards often and punished the secondary many times as he enjoyed excellent run blocking up front by the Giants. The Giants offensive line sealed off many lanes throughout the game and got a great push at the snap. Vereen and the Giants elected to pass for most of the plays they were in the redzone as they needed to come away with touchdowns to stay in front of Dallas. The passing attack is clearly their strength but the running game was effective and a pleasant surprise for fantasy/NYG fans.


Latest News

Giants | Shane Vereen could return late in season (Mon Sep 26, 04:06 PM) - Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) is expected to take two months to recover from triceps surgery, according to sources. He could be placed on the Reserve/Injured list and then come off later.

Our View: Ah yes, the new IR rules in the NFL. Vereen looked good with a larger role in Week 3 while Rashad Jennings was out. Without Vereen, Jennings should be the lead back. Bobby Rainey and rookie Paul Perkins will compete for playing time as well.

Giants | Shane Vereen out for the season (Mon Sep 26, 01:31 PM) - New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) will miss the rest of the season with a triceps injury that will require surgery.

Our View: Vereen was the leading back for the Giants in Week 3, but now they will turn back to Rashad Jennings (if healthy). Orleans Darkwa needs to be added to your roster if you need RB help. Keep an eye on Bobby Rainey and rookie Paul Perkins in deeper leagues too.

Giants | Shane Vereen scores rushing TD (Mon Sep 26, 07:28 AM) - New York Giants RB Shane Vereen had 11 carries for 67 yards and a touchdown in a 29-27 loss to the Washington Redskins Sunday, Sept. 25.

Giants | Rashad Jennings unlikely to play (Sun Sep 25, 09:14 AM) - Contrary to a previous report, New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) is not expected to be active for Week 3's game against the Washington Redskins. RB Shane Vereen is expected to see the bulk of the snaps in his place.

Our View: Orleans Darkwa is Jennings backup between the tackles and he could get goal line work. Washington is a favorable rushing matchup, so Vereen moves into RB2 consideration, especially in PPR leagues.
