Patriots | Shane Vereen misses practice

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 11:44:18 -0700

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (illness) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 24, because of an illness, according to a source. The team does not appear to be worried since Vereen is not injured.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen probably will be able to play in Week 8 despite the illness and should receive most of the work at running back. Vereen costs $6,600 on FantasyScore and should be a good starting option since he is a part of the running and passing game.

Patriots | Big game for Shane Vereen

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 21:05:34 -0700

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen had 11 carries for 43 yards and five catches for 71 yards and two touchdowns in the team's Week 7 game Thursday, Oct. 16.

Fantasy Tip: In the first game without Stevan Ridley, Vereen led the team in carries, rushing yards and receiving yards. Without much competition in the backfield, he should become one of the safer plays at the position at FantasyScore.

Patriots | Stevan Ridley praised

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 06:34:38 -0700

New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley was praised by head coach Bill Belichick for his growth this season. Belichick also credited Ridley's ball security, vision and confidence.

Fantasy Tip: Ridley busted out for a 27-113-1 game last week and could have thrust himself into a position where he's the primary runner and Shane Vereen is the receiving back. Both backs should be involved, and it could be a game-by-game situation where one may be used more than the other. Ridley ($5,300; 10.6% of your cap) and Vereen ($6,300; 12.6%) are RB2 or flex options this week against Buffalo.

Patriots | Shane Vereen leading RBs in snaps

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 18:54:17 -0700

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen was on the field for 17 offensive snaps in the first half of the Week 4 game against the Kansas City Chiefs Monday, Sept. 29, with RB Stevan Ridley in for six snaps, and RB James White in for two. The team ran two plays with two running backs on the field simultaneously.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen's fantasy owners have to like the snap distribution, although Ridley actually leads the team in rushing with 15 yards on three totes, while Vereen has nine yards on four runs. Vereen also has 12 yards on three receptions while the other two have no catches. Vereen is the best fantasy option of the trio, but neither has done much of anything Monday.

Patriots | Shane Vereen suiting up

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 08:51:34 -0700

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (shoulder) is active against the Oakland Raiders Sunday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen ($7,300; 14.6% of the cap) is a good start in PPR leagues. However, his price tag on FantasyScore is cumbersome considering how much the team spreads the ball around.

Patriots | Shane Vereen likely to play

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 07:54:53 -0700

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (shoulder) is likely to play Sunday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen ($7,300; 14.6% of the cap) is a shaky RB1 in non-PPR leagues against the Oakland Raiders. The offense has been struggling and spreads the ball around. He's worth a start in PPR leagues, but be aware of the number of risks involved.

Patriots | Shane Vereen questionable for Week 3

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 14:54:38 -0700

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 19, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen was limited during the entire week of practice and may not be 100 percent entering the game. Vereen costs $7,300 on FantasyScore this week, which may be too expensive for some owners.

Patriots | Shane Vereen a limited participant

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 16:12:17 -0700

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (shoulder) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen's stock is down after taking a back seat to Stevan Ridley in Week 2. That could continue in the home opener against the Oakland Raiders, making Vereen a risk at $7,300 for 14.6% of your salary cap at FantasyScore.

Patriots | Shane Vereen doesn't do all drills

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 15:36:50 -0700

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (shoulder) has been added to this week's injury report, and he was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen surprisingly took a backseat to Stevan Ridley in Week 2, rushing for only 40 yards on six carries without any catches. Maybe his new injury played a part. Vereen doesn't seem profitable at FantasyScore this week ($7,300) with his role up in the air.

Patriots | Shane Vereen dominates snaps

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 05:49:27 -0700

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen rushed seven times for 36 yards and a touchdown Week 1. He also had five catches for 35 yards. He played in 71 percent of the snaps in Week 1. RB Stevan Ridley had eight rushes for 21 yards and two catches in Week 1 while playing in 26 percent of the snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen should make a decent RB2, depending on his salary cap value, against the Vikings. Ridley's low snap count is concerning, but he had one more rushing attempt than Vereen. He is an option to consider for your flex position on FantasyScore.
