Giants | Shane Vereen providing versatility

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 14:42:40 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen gives the Giants someone who can line up anywhere on any play. QB Eli Manning has frequently targeted Vereen on check-down passes, but New York will also have plays designed specifically for Vereen, according to Kimberly Jones of the NFL Network.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen won't see as much playing time as he wants to with Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams also in the mix. His role with the Giants could be similar to the one he had in New England. Expect him to be in mainly on passing downs. He's in the RB3 discussion in PPR leagues heading into drafts.

Giants | Top two Giants RBs working with starters

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 13:13:34 -0700

New York Giants RBs Rashad Jennings and Shane Vereen received snaps with the first-team offense during practice Friday, Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings probably will receive a majority of the carries this season with Vereen more involved in the passing game. Jennings could be a middle-round option in most leagues if he wins the starting job. Vereen likely will have more value in point-per-reception leagues but be an option in the late rounds of most leagues.

Giants | Rashad Jennings working with twos

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 05:22:49 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings has seen quite a bit of second-team repetitions in camp with RB Shane Vereen and RB Andre Williams seeing most with the first team.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings should still be a factor, but the receiving back and the ground-and-pounder seeing more starter reps is concerning. Jennings is an RB3 in fantasy, while Vereen is a high-end RB2 in PPR leagues. Williams is a low-end RB4 right now.

Giants | Shane Vereen will pass protect

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 11:43:11 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen is expected to help the Giants' passing game by protecting the quarterback in addition to catching the ball.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen's specialty is catching the football, but the Giants have also been impressed with his ability to pass protect. If he can prove that he's capable of successfully protecting the quarterback, he could see an uptick in playing time, which could increase his fantasy value. Consider him a low-end RB2 in PPR leagues.

Giants | RB roles TBD for Giants

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 15:26:10 -0700

New York Giants RBs Rashad Jennings, Shane Vereen and Andre Williams will use training camp to determine their roles in the offense, according to running backs coach Craig Johnson. "I think that as we get closer to games and time for the opener, we will find out more role defining roles for them," Johnson said. "Right now, I try to put them in every situation so I can see what they can do. I try not to say, for instance, 'Shane is only going to run the ball.' I want to see if Shane can catch the ball. I know he can, but I want to see if he can under pressure situations and vice versa. I do that for all of our guys because that way you can kind of find out what they all can do."

Fantasy Tip: Jennings likely will receive most of the carries this season and may have the most fantasy value among the running backs. Vereen probably will be more valuable in point-per-reception leagues because of his ability to catch the ball. All three running backs should be selected in drafts this season since they will all receive playing time.

Giants | Shane Vereen had success in 2014

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 15:11:45 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen rushed for at least five yards in nearly 38% of his runs last season, which was 10th best in the NFL. Vereen also had the highest percentage (25.5%) of runs in the NFL that resulted in zero yards or negative yards.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen likely will be more involved in the passing game this season and could see some carries as well. Vereen may be more valuable in point-per-reception leagues but should be a middle-round option in most leagues this season.

Giants | Shane Vereen sees time in red zone

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 09:13:44 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen received snaps in the red zone during offseason workouts and was used all over the field as a receiver out of the backfield.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen likely will not receive regular carries but should have a solid role in the offense as a receiver in the passing game. Vereen will have more value in point-per-reception leagues, but he could be a middle-round option in most leagues.

Giants | Rashad Jennings to be most used RB?

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 10:53:28 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is still expected to lead the Giants in touches, according to ESPN.com's Dan Graziano, despite the acquisition of RB Shane Vereen this offseason. Graziano said the Giants will give Jennings the ball as long as he can stay healthy.

Fantasy Tip: The big question for Jennings is if he can stay healthy. If he can, then he probably will end up leading New York's running backs in snaps. Vereen's role will primarily be in the passing game, while Williams will likely spot Jennings on running downs and perhaps in goal-line situations. Jennings is in low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 territory. Vereen has RB3 upside in point-per-reception leagues and Williams is more of a handcuff pick incase Jennings does get injured.

Giants | Shane Vereen featured in passing game

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 13:35:06 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen caught pass after pass in organized team activities Monday, June 8, particularly in the red zone.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants' backfield will be crowded this year with Vereen, Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams, but Vereen should see the majority of the work in the passing game out of the backfield. He's proved himself to be a point-per-reception monster and has RB2 upside in leagues with a PPR format.

Giants | Shane Vereen impresses

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 07:28:40 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen has impressed in organized team activities and caught an abundance of passes out of the backfield. He was very busy in the red zone. Vereen figures to be a big part of the offense.

Fantasy Tip: The knock on Vereen is how little he is used in the running game, which hurts his stock in standard formats. However, he's a good RB2 in PPR formats with his elite pass-catching abilities.
