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.

Giants | Shane Vereen misses practice

Mon, 19 Dec 2016 15:09:04 -0800

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) did not practice Monday, Dec. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Rashad Jennings and Paul Perkins just as damaging to Vereen's fantasy value as his injury. His role should remain limited, if he plays, especially since he's not at full health. Keep Vereen on the bench, or just release him.

Giants | Shane Vereen to play in Week 15

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 09:01:50 -0800

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (concussion) is active for Week 15's game against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and had been listed as questionable on the injury report. He is expected to receive limited touches this afternoon and could have a role in the passing game but is too much of a risk to depend on for production in the fantasy playoffs.

Giants | Shane Vereen cleared

Sat, 17 Dec 2016 10:57:20 -0800

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (concussion) was been cleared from the concussion protocol and is expected to play in the team's Week 15 game, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen probably will receive limited touches against the Detroit Lions this week but should be involved in the passing game. Owners probably can find better options to use in their lineups and can avoid Vereen.

Giants | Shane Vereen listed as questionable

Fri, 16 Dec 2016 11:37:58 -0800

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (concussion) is listed as questionable to play in the team's Week 15 game Sunday, Dec. 18, against the Detroit Lions. He got in another limited practice Thursday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen has been practicing on a limited basis all week, meaning he's probably on track to play this weekend. At the same time, he isn't really an option for fantasy teams in the postseason, even in the deepest of formats, as he'll most likely be suiting up at less than 100 percent if he plays. Plus, there aren't many touches available for the former Patriot out of the backfield, too.

Giants | Shane Vereen limited

Thu, 15 Dec 2016 13:12:04 -0800

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (concussion) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 15.

Fantasy Tip: With Rashad Jennings and Paul Perkins both healthy and in the mix, Vereen's fantasy value is limited. He's better off in PPR leagues, but he should not be started in the fantasy playoffs, especially after just one catch for 10 yards last game.

Giants | Limited practice for Shane Vereen

Wed, 14 Dec 2016 13:51:20 -0800

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (concussion) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen caught just one pass for 10 yards in his return to action last week. His fantasy value is stinted due to Rashad Jennings and Paul Perkins. It's probably safe to keep Vereen on the bench for the remainder of the fantasy season.

Giants | Shane Vereen has concussion

Mon, 12 Dec 2016 07:55:51 -0800

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (concussion) played three snaps Sunday, Dec. 11, before leaving with a concussion.

Fantasy Tip: That would explain why he only had two targets. Check back for updates. If he receives clearance, he's a flex option in PPR leagues.
