Patriots | Shane Vereen not asking for $5 million

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 09:54:45 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Shane Vereen made it clear that he doesn't expect to make $5 million in 2015, as was previously reported.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen's 2015 fantasy football value will obviously depend on where he's playing. However, he should be worth a roster spot in standard point-per-reception leagues regardless.

Patriots | Shane Vereen hoping for $5 million

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 13:20:06 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Shane Vereen is expecting a contract worth at least $5 million per season, according to a source. Vereen would like to remain with the Patriots, but there have been no indications on whether the sides are close on a new deal.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen will have more value in point-per-reception leagues no matter where he plays. When healthy, he's worth at least low-end RB2 consideration in PPR leagues and is no more than a flex play in standard scoring leagues.

Patriots | Shane Vereen sets Super Bowl record

Mon, 02 Feb 2015 14:07:34 -0800

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen set a Super Bowl record Sunday, Feb. 1, for most receptions (11) by a running back in Super Bowl history.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen has proven himself as a top-notch point-per-reception (PPR) running back. He's worthy of No. 2 running back consideration in PPR drafts this offseason. LeGarrette Blount stunts his potential in the running game.

Patriots | Shane Vereen helps in passing game

Sun, 01 Feb 2015 20:19:57 -0800

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen had 11 catches for 64 yards and four carries for 13 yards in a 28-24 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX Sunday, Feb. 1.

Fantasy Tip: New England's refusal to stick with one running back makes any player in the backfield an inconsistent fantasy option, but Vereen's ability to contribute in the passing game helps stabilize his production.

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 14:54:22 -0800

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 25. The Patriots did not practice Thursday, so this is an estimation.

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (ankle) took part in practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Dec. 24.

Sun, 21 Dec 2014 09:04:31 -0800

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen (ankle) is active for the team's Week 16 game.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen could receive more touches since LeGarrette Blount is inactive, but Vereen likely will be more active in the passing game. Vereen costs $4,700 on FantasyScore and could be a flex option for owners.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount, Shane Vereen questionable

Fri, 19 Dec 2014 14:08:59 -0800

New England Patriots RBs LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) and Shane Vereen (ankle) both were limited in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and are questionable for Week 16 against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: The Pats are facing a Jets team whose strength on defense is stopping the run, immediately making Blount ($4,500) and Vereen ($4,700) unattractive FantasyScore options. Add in the uncertainty in New England's backfield and you have two options to avoid for daily rosters.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount, Shane Vereen limited

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 13:54:56 -0800

New England Patriots RBs LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) and Shane Vereen (ankle) were both limited for the second straight day in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: After Jonas Gray came back into the running back picture last week, it's hard to trust Bill Belichick, Blount ($4,500) or Vereen ($4,700) at FantasyScore. The New York Jets also feature a fairly stingy run defense, making both running backs even less attractive in daily leagues this week.
