Giants | Shane Vereen slated as third-down back

Fri, 05 Aug 2016 12:28:05 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen will be utilized as the third-down and hurry-up-offense back this season.

Fantasy Tip: This isn't surprising, and as a result, Vereen's fantasy value is much higher in PPR leagues. He's caught 111 passes over the past two seasons with nine total scores. View Vereen as a depth option to plug in during bye weeks and not a weekly starter in all fantasy formats, and he shouldn't be targeted until the later rounds of drafts.

Giants | Solid workload for Rashad Jennings?

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 12:31:09 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings could see around 15 to 18 carries per game in 2016, according to John Schmeelk of giants.com. Jennings will still be the Giants' primary running back, with RB Shane Vereen serving as the third-down back.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings has been underrated so far this year for a starting running back. He did leave something to be desired, but Jennings still deserves RB3 consideration after amassing nearly 1,200 total yards and four total touchdowns.

Giants | Minimal impact from Paul Perkins?

Thu, 12 May 2016 14:05:17 -0700

New York Giants rookie RB Paul Perkins isn't expected to have much of an impact in his rookie season, in the opinion of Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. Vacchiano anticipates RB Andre Williams to have the first shot at being the short-yardage running back and Jennings' backup, with RB Shane Vereen reprising his pass-catching and third-down role.

Fantasy Tip: Rashad Jennings will start, but the hype train on Perkins may need to hit the brakes a little bit before the season starts. Perkins will need to work his way up to take playing time away from Jennings, Williams and Vereen, so don't draft him as more than a speculative RB5 in traditional leagues.

Giants | Orleans Darkwa, Shane Vereen do little

Mon, 14 Dec 2015 22:34:24 -0800

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa carried three times for 10 yards in the Week 14 game against the Miami Dolphins Monday, Dec. 14, and he added a six-yard catch. RB Shane Vereen had one grab for 10 yards and one carry for no gain. RB Andre Williams ran three times for just three yards.

Fantasy Tip: Darkwa appears to slowly (and unofficially) have jumped Vereen and Williams on the depth chart for the second spot on the running backs pecking order. Still, as long as Rashad Jennings is healthy none of the trio is worth a look in most fantasy formats.

Giants | NYG struggle to run the ball

Sun, 06 Dec 2015 19:50:58 -0800

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa ran eight times for a team-high 23 yards in the Week 13 game against the New York Jets, and he had a 10-yard catch. RB Andre Williams rushed six times for 22 yards, while RB Rashad Jennings had five totes for 14 yards and a 19-yard catch. RB Shane Vereen also had four runs for 13 yards and two grabs for seven yards.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants wanted to run the ball more effectively in Week 13, but not one piece of the four-player monster really seemed to be able to build any momentum. The Giants backfield is a fantasy nightmare, so stay away.

Giants | Shane Vereen totals 63 yards, TD

Sun, 01 Nov 2015 19:06:56 -0800

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen ran just two times for three yards in the Week 8 game against the New Orleans Saints, but he added eight receptions for 60 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) can be a decent low-end RB2 or flex FantasyScore option when facing a team with a poor passing defense, as that's where Vereen is most dangerous.

Giants | Orleans Darkwa to see more touches?

Mon, 26 Oct 2015 09:51:31 -0700

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa had played on just two offensive snaps heading into Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys, but he was the leading rusher in the preseason by averaging 4.4 yards per carry. Offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo was non-committal if Darkwa would see more work behind RBs Rashad Jennings, Shane Vereen and Andre Williams.

Fantasy Tip: That question was answered: Darkwa had eight carries for 48 yards and a touchdown against Dallas. While he could continue to be mixed in, the G-Men just have too many mouths to feed for Darkwa to continue to be anything more than a deep sleeper option for FantasyScore users.

Giants | Shane Vereen disappears on MNF

Mon, 19 Oct 2015 22:19:38 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen carried four times for zero yards in Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles Monday, Oct. 19, and he had one reception for six yards. He was targeted four times.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) had a strong game in Week 5, but he was nearly non-existent in this one. FantasyScore players should avoid Vereen until he starts to produce much more consistently.

Giants | Shane Vereen could have bigger role

Wed, 14 Oct 2015 07:02:44 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen could have a bigger role in the passing game if WR Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring) or WR Rueben Randle (hamstring) are unable to go Monday, Oct. 19, against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) could be a nice flex play on FantasyScore this week.

Giants | Shane Vereen busy in pass game

Sun, 11 Oct 2015 22:12:38 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen carried five times for 24 yards in the Week 5 game against the San Francisco 49ers and he added eight receptions for 86 yards with a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) was busy in the pass game in the second half, especially once Odell Beckham Jr. and Rueben Randle each checked out due to hamstring injuries. Vereen could be a valuable FantasyScore option going forward if one or both receivers are limited or forced to miss time.
