Giants | Shane Vereen may have a role

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 11:28:58 -0800

New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo said the team may have a package of plays for RB Shane Vereen (triceps) if he is ready to play in Week 14. Vereen's status will be determined Saturday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen has not been able to play since September because of his injury but has been able to practice over the last few weeks. He probably would see limited touches if he is active for Week 14 and probably should be avoided in most leagues.

Giants | Shane Vereen practicing

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 09:40:33 -0800

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) is practicing again Wednesday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen could come off the PUP this week, but it's hard to trust him his first week back in fantasy. The Giants also take on the Dallas Cowboys this week.

Giants | Shane Vereen hopes to play vs Cowboys

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 21:49:11 -0800

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) is hoping to be activated in time for the team's Week 14 showdown with the Dallas Cowboys, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan.

Fantasy Tip: Anyone in a PPR league that's desperate for a running back should consider grabbing Vereen now as a possible late-season boost, though clearly plugging him into your lineup this week (assuming he's actually activated) would require a leap of faith.

Giants | Shane Vereen returns to practice

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 09:40:19 -0800

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) returned to practice Wednesday, Nov. 30. The team has 21 days to activate him from the Reserve/Injured list.

Fantasy Tip: There are still some hurdles to clear, but Vereen is a sneaky stash option with the potential for him to return soon.

Giants | Shane Vereen's status still unclear

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 11:14:32 -0800

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) may be able to return to practice this week, although head coach Ben McAdoo told reporters he is taking a wait-and-see approach before making a decision.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen is still on the Reserve/Injured list and may not return this season, but the Giants are reportedly eyeing a Week 14 return, which means he'll need to start practicing pretty soon. If Vereen makes it back, he'll likely take the place of Paul Perkins and return to his usual pass-catching role. In such a case, Vereen could return the same kind of RB3 value he had prior to his injury.

Giants | Shane Vereen could return next month

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 08:15:55 -0800

The New York Giants are hoping that RB Shane Vereen (triceps) will be able to return from injured reserve Dec. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Although Vereen averaged 4.7 yards per carry when healthy, he is only worthy of stashing in deep seasonal leagues at this point, if you can afford the roster space.

Giants | No indications Shane Vereen is close

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 22:50:53 -0800

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) is eligible to return to practice, but there have been no indications Vereen is ready to return. He was placed on the Reserve/Injured Designated to Return list with a torn triceps Sept. 27. "Haven't had those conversations yet," head coach Ben McAdoo said Wednesday, Nov. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen averaged 4.7 yards per carry this season when active, but there is no sense stashing him away in most fantasy leagues right now. Wait for a more definitely timetable before using a roster spot on him unless you have super deep benches and can afford the spot.

Giants | Good chance Shane Vereen returns?

Mon, 07 Nov 2016 10:42:19 -0800

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) has a "good chance" to reap term before the end of the season, according to The Bergen Record's Art Stapleton.

Fantasy Tip: Stapleton admits the Giants will have a better idea about Vereen around Thanksgiving. Despite the optimism, the scatback was eligible to return to practice last week and did not, and it makes sense he would only be allowed to return if New York is still in the playoff race when he is ready, which is far from a sure thing. Owners in deeper leagues can stash Vereen if they like, but it is just as likely that rookie Paul Perkins has already emerged as the main back by the time Vereen is cleared.

Giants | Shane Vereen goes to IR

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 13:37:33 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Sept. 27.

Fantasy Tip: As has previously been stated, Bobby Rainey and Orleans Darkwa should see increased roles with Vereen sidelined, with Rashad Jennings maintaining his starting role as long as he's healthy. Paul Perkins could even start to manage a few touches per game, but his fantasy value is still minimal. Rainey is the better bet in PPR formats and should be claimed off waivers, especially by those who have Vereen on their roster.

Giants | Paul Perkins ready for bigger role

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 09:29:22 -0700

New York Giants RB Paul Perkins is among the candidates who will be asked to fill the void left behind by the absence of Shane Vereen (triceps) after the team's leading rusher suffered a triceps injury in Week 3 that is expected to sideline him at least two months. Head coach Ben McAdoo stated a committee will replace Vereen and that Perkins is "ready to step up".

Fantasy Tip: Perkins is arguably the most talented player in the Giants' backfield and was labeled a "three-down back" by the Giants' administration shortly after they drafted him this spring. Rashad Jennings is expected back in Week 4 and will likely cede some work to Orleans Darkwa and Bobby Rainey, but the fifth-round rookie should be added to watch lists now at the very least. He is certainly capable of overtaking Jennings at some point later in the season and appears to be the team's back of the future.
