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.

Giants | Shane Vereen quiet again

Mon, 05 Oct 2015 13:45:11 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen was held without a catch for the second straight week against the Buffalo Bills Sunday, Oct. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen has been one of the most prolific pass-catching running backs over the past few years. He was heavily involved in New York's passing game the first two weeks, catching 12 passes combined. Since then, he has zero catches and has only rushed for 44 yards. It's probably best to bench Vereen, even in PPR leagues, until he sees more work.

Giants | Shane Vereen will line up wide

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 06:37:47 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen will likely be used to line up at wide receiver in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills. "Yeah, it's all hands on deck. We'll use him, anybody we can. We need 11. So we'll play with 11 healthy bodies if that's all we have," offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo said. "The guys that can catch the ball the best we'll play with on the perimeter."

Fantasy Tip: Vereen ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) could come at a good value on FantasyScore, but the risk is that he doesn't run the ball as much. The Giants are extremely thin at receiver and tight end, and Vereen could serve as their pseudo-WR3.

Giants | Shane Vereen's streak ends

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 08:34:57 -0700

New York Giants RB Shane Vereen did not catch a pass Thursday night against the New York Giants. It was the first time since Week 2 of last season that Vereen had not caught a pass, including the postseason. He ran for 23 yards on six carries in a 32-21 win over the Washington Redskins, but was held without a reception on three targets.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen's value lies mainly within the passing game, but Odell Beckham Jr. and Rueben Randle were the highlights in that department last night. Week 3 could end up as one of Vereen's least productive weeks of the season, so be patient with him, especially in PPR leagues.
