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

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.

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.
