Giants | Shane Vereen leads run game

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 21:14:58 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen rushed six times for a team-high 28 yards in Week 2 against the Detroit Lions on Monday, Sept. 18, and he added three receptions for 27 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen leading the team in rushing tells you a little something about how the night went for the G-Men. Vereen isn't known for his rushing, but for his hands out of the backfield. He is a tremendous PPR option in most fantasy leagues, but not terribly valuable in some standard formats. The Giants travel to Philadelphia in Week 3.

Giants | Shane Vereen secures nine receptions

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 22:09:35 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen did not have a rush attempt in Week 1 at Dallas, but he was able to contribute with nine receptions for 51 yards on 10 targets.

Fantasy Tip: The run game isn't where Vereen is effective, but he does have a tremendous hands out of the backfield. Vereen remains a solid RB3 or flex option in most PPR formats. He'll look to carry over the momentum into Week 2 against Detroit.

Giants | Orleans Darkwa getting first-team run

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 12:52:41 -0700

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa has been splitting first-team reps with Paul Perkins and seeing even more work than usual with Shane Vereen unavailable recently. According to the New York Daily News' Pat Leonard, Darkwa appears to be challenging for a feature role.

Fantasy Tip: Perkins is not an elite NFL feature back, but he certainly brings more ability to the table than Darkwa. It is highly unlikely Darkwa will do much more than take a few early-down snaps from Perkins. Vereen is more of a threat to Perkins' overall playing time, assuming the former can stay healthy. The Giants seem to want a committee backfield, so it will be Perkins to achieve much more than RB4 production.

Giants | Shane Vereen not rushing back

Fri, 09 Jun 2017 11:21:29 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) is taking a slower approach this offseason after he admitted returning prematurely from a torn triceps last year.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen will likely be playing behind Paul Perkins and splitting time with Wayne Gallman, among others. He should be mostly used in passing-down situations and thus has more value in PPR leagues as a late-round option.

Giants | Shane Vereen ready to go

Fri, 19 May 2017 18:54:20 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) is fully recovered after tearing his triceps twice last season.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen's role is limited to passing downs, but as much as the Giants throw the ball, he is still a RB4 in PPR formats with potential as a flex option.

Giants | Shane Vereen takes pay cut

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 10:29:32 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen reduced his 2017 base salary from $3.15 million to $2.15 million, according to NFL Players Association records.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen is strictly a late-round PPR consideration. He is expected to have a complementary role alongside Paul Perkins. Newly acquired Shaun Draughn possesses similar traits as Vereen, which could make Vereen's role more complicated. In other words, he may not see the field as much.

Giants | Shane Vereen expected to be back

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 20:02:52 -0800

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (arm) is expected to be back with the team in 2017 as long as his rehab from a torn triceps continues to go well, according to beat writer Jordan Raanan.

Fantasy Tip: If Vereen returns, he should immediately become a factor in the passing game and have flex value in PPR formats.

Giants | Surgery for Shane Vereen

Tue, 20 Dec 2016 22:39:16 -0800

Updating previous reports, New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) will need surgery on his injured triceps, according to head coach Ben McAdoo.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen was out for the season no matter what, but this news speaks to the severity of the injury. Rashad Jennings and Paul Perkins could have limited value over the final two weeks if you're looking for a fill-in.

Giants | Shane Vereen's season over

Tue, 20 Dec 2016 07:11:36 -0800

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 20, ending his season.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen re-injured his triceps last week, and it's unknown if he'll require surgery or how long he'll be out. He'll be a big question mark next fantasy season but could still provide a PPR spark. Rashad Jennings and Paul Perkins will continue to be flex options the final two weeks.

Giants | Shane Vereen re-injured triceps

Mon, 19 Dec 2016 16:10:53 -0800

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) re-injured his triceps during the team's Week 15 game, according to head coach Ben McAdoo.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of Vereen's injury is uncertain at this point, so owners should check on his status later in the week. Rashad Jennings and Paul Perkins would share work at running back if Vereen is not able to play, but neither player is more than a flex option.
