Giants | Shane Vereen on track to play

Fri, 29 Sep 2017 16:17:58 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (calf) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen likely will continue to be used as mostly a receiver out of the backfield against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but probably would not be a great option for fantasy owners.

Giants | Shane Vereen does not practice

Thu, 28 Sep 2017 12:05:50 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (calf) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Vereen may be in danger of missing the Week 4 game because of the injury, so owners should monitor the situation. He has been more involved in the passing game so far this season but only has 129 total yards in three games. Paul Perkins is probably the only Giants running back with fantasy value and should be considered a flex option.

Giants | Shane Vereen sidelined due to calf

Wed, 27 Sep 2017 12:13:45 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (calf) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen is nursing a calf injury, while Orleans Darkwa was off the field due to a back ailment. If one or neither can go, or they're limited in Week 4, it would mean Paul Perkins would see more touches.

Giants | Just three touches for Shane Vereen

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 16:36:05 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen posted two catches for 18 yards in Week 3 against the Eagles and he rushed just once for five yards.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen was limited to three touches, but he still managed a critical mistake running out of bounds in a key situation to give Philadelphia extra time on the clock. Just three touches helps no fantasy players.

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.
