Giants | Shane Vereen sees time in red zone

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 09:13:44 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen received snaps in the red zone during offseason workouts and was used all over the field as a receiver out of the backfield.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen likely will not receive regular carries but should have a solid role in the offense as a receiver in the passing game. Vereen will have more value in point-per-reception leagues, but he could be a middle-round option in most leagues.

Giants | Rashad Jennings to be most used RB?

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 10:53:28 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is still expected to lead the Giants in touches, according to ESPN.com's Dan Graziano, despite the acquisition of RB Shane Vereen this offseason. Graziano said the Giants will give Jennings the ball as long as he can stay healthy.

Fantasy Tip: The big question for Jennings is if he can stay healthy. If he can, then he probably will end up leading New York's running backs in snaps. Vereen's role will primarily be in the passing game, while Williams will likely spot Jennings on running downs and perhaps in goal-line situations. Jennings is in low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 territory. Vereen has RB3 upside in point-per-reception leagues and Williams is more of a handcuff pick incase Jennings does get injured.

Giants | Shane Vereen featured in passing game

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 13:35:06 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen caught pass after pass in organized team activities Monday, June 8, particularly in the red zone.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants' backfield will be crowded this year with Vereen, Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams, but Vereen should see the majority of the work in the passing game out of the backfield. He's proved himself to be a point-per-reception monster and has RB2 upside in leagues with a PPR format.

Giants | Shane Vereen impresses

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 07:28:40 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen has impressed in organized team activities and caught an abundance of passes out of the backfield. He was very busy in the red zone. Vereen figures to be a big part of the offense.

Fantasy Tip: The knock on Vereen is how little he is used in the running game, which hurts his stock in standard formats. However, he's a good RB2 in PPR formats with his elite pass-catching abilities.

Giants | Shane Vereen adds dimension for NY

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 14:13:58 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen gives the Giants something they didn't have last season -- a receiving threat out of the backfield. "I see him in that regard as a pass receiver out of the backfield," head coach Tom Coughlin said. Coughlin added that Vereen can protect the quarterback and is a capable runner.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Vereen may be used more often than originally thought in New York's offense. The bulk of his fantasy value remains in point-per-reception leagues, though he may not be targeted as much as he was in New England with the Giants' receiving trio of Odell Beckham Jr., Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle. Still, Vereen has RB2 upside in PPR leagues.

Giants | Shane Vereen expected to sign with Giants

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 09:58:35 -0700

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Shane Vereen is expected to sign with the New York Giants Tuesday, March 10. Terms of the expected contract were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen will likely split time with Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams, but should still see his fair share of passes out of the backfield. He should be considered an RB3 or flex option, with upside in PPR leagues.

Jets | Shane Vereen perks Jets' interest

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 09:18:55 -0700

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Shane Vereen is of interest to the New York Jets if he hits the open market Tuesday, March 10. The Jets have inquired about Vereen already.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen was an inconsistent commodity in 2014, and he was borderline useless most weeks in non-PPR formats. He'll be an RB2 consideration in PPR formats wherever he lands. He'll be a matchup play in non-PPR formats.

Giants | Shane Vereen a target for Giants

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 17:40:53 -0700

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Shane Vereen is receiving significant interest from the New York Giants, because they are looking for a versatile running back.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen likely would share playing time with Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams if he joins the Giants. He likely would be involved in the passing game, but it is not known how many carries he would receive. He probably would be a No. 3 running back or flex option if he signs with New York.

Patriots | Shane Vereen looking for $3.5 million

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 04:11:57 -0800

Free-agent RB Shane Vereen (Patriots) is looking for a contract that will pay $3.5 million per year, not $5 million as previously thought.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen may find some teams interested at that price, especially those starving for some sort of running game. As a previous tip suggested, it's best to wait and see where Vereen lands before judging his fantasy value.
