Giants | Shane Vereen goes to IR

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 13:37:33 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Sept. 27.

Fantasy Tip: As has previously been stated, Bobby Rainey and Orleans Darkwa should see increased roles with Vereen sidelined, with Rashad Jennings maintaining his starting role as long as he's healthy. Paul Perkins could even start to manage a few touches per game, but his fantasy value is still minimal. Rainey is the better bet in PPR formats and should be claimed off waivers, especially by those who have Vereen on their roster.

Giants | Paul Perkins ready for bigger role

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 09:29:22 -0700

New York Giants RB Paul Perkins is among the candidates who will be asked to fill the void left behind by the absence of Shane Vereen (triceps) after the team's leading rusher suffered a triceps injury in Week 3 that is expected to sideline him at least two months. Head coach Ben McAdoo stated a committee will replace Vereen and that Perkins is "ready to step up".

Fantasy Tip: Perkins is arguably the most talented player in the Giants' backfield and was labeled a "three-down back" by the Giants' administration shortly after they drafted him this spring. Rashad Jennings is expected back in Week 4 and will likely cede some work to Orleans Darkwa and Bobby Rainey, but the fifth-round rookie should be added to watch lists now at the very least. He is certainly capable of overtaking Jennings at some point later in the season and appears to be the team's back of the future.

Giants | Shane Vereen could return late in season

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 13:06:10 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) is expected to take two months to recover from triceps surgery, according to sources. He could be placed on the Reserve/Injured list and then come off later.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen will still miss several weeks assuming he does go through with the surgery. Rashad Jennings, Orleans Darkwa and Bobby Rainey will all see upticks in their workloads, but Rainey seems like the favorite to take over pass-catching duties out of the backfield. He is a top waiver wire consideration this week, especially for those who own Vereen.

Giants | Shane Vereen out for the season

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 10:31:50 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) will miss the rest of the season with a triceps injury that will require surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen turned 13 touches into 95 yards and a touchdown and was still in the game on the Giants' final offensive play in Week 3, so it is unclear when he suffered the injury. His loss stings a team that was already missing Rashad Jennings due to a thumb injury. Rookie Paul Perkins is the player that should slide into Vereen's role, but it appears New York doesn't believe he is ready yet. If Jennings is out again Week 4, expect Orleans Darkwa to get the start and Bobby Rainey to absorb Vereen's complementary role.

Giants | Shane Vereen scores rushing TD

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 04:28:09 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen had 11 carries for 67 yards and a touchdown in a 29-27 loss to the Washington Redskins Sunday, Sept. 25.

Fantasy Tip: The problem with using Vereen on a regular basis is it looks like the Giants may have a RB by committee approach. Orleans Darkwa had a touchdown as well and ran for 53 yards. Stay away for the moment until the Giants sort out who will carry the ball the most.

Giants | Rashad Jennings unlikely to play

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 06:14:09 -0700

Contrary to a previous report, New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) is not expected to be active for Week 3's game against the Washington Redskins. RB Shane Vereen is expected to see the bulk of the snaps in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen is averaging four yards per carry and has caught six passes for 47 yards through the first two games this season. He merits consideration as a flex option in most fantasy formats.

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.
