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 | NYG batting injuries in defensive backfield

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 09:09:54 -0700

New York Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (groin) played only 32 of 71 snaps against the Washington Redskins in Week 3 before leaving with a strained groin and will likely be out a few weeks. Rookie CB Eli Apple (hamstring) and S Darian Thompson (foot) are also unlikely to suit up in Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings.

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 | Rashad Jennings could be back Week 4

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 11:32:53 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb), who missed Week 3 with a sprained thumb, could be ready to return against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 4, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: Given the Giants are less than 24 hours out from declaring their starting running back out, this optimism may be more a product of their urgency than any real progress after the team lost Shane Vereen for the season on Monday. Orleans Darkwa and Bobby Rainey figure to share touches should Jennings not be able to go, but neither player can be considered more than a desperation flex play against a very good defense.

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 | Sterling Shepard scores in Week 3

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 04:32:20 -0700

New York Giants WR Sterling Shepard caught a 23-yard touchdown and had five receptions for 73 yards in a 29-27 loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday, Sept. 25.

Fantasy Tip: The rookie was part of a strong combo that included Odell Beckham (121 yards) and Victor Cruz (70 yards). Because QB Eli Manning has so many options, you may want to hold off to see how much Shepard will be used, but right now he looks like a decent option for either your bench or a lower receiver spot.

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 | Eli Manning has rough spots in Week 3

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 04:17:42 -0700

New York Giants QB Eli Manning threw one touchdown and passed for 350 yards but also had two interceptions Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 29-27 loss to the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Manning did complete two-thirds of his passes but obviously the interceptions hurt this week. Manning is still a solid option but beware going in that he will have games like these.

Giants | Rashad Jennings expected back in Week 4

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 17:36:15 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) said Sunday, Sept. 25, that he understood head coach Ben McAdoo's decision to keep him out. He said his thumb feels better and he is hopeful of returning in Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: With Jennings sidelined it was Orleans Darkwa shouldering the load in the backfield for Big Blue. If Jennings is forced to miss more time Darkwa is worth a look in some deeper fantasy formats and DFS leagues.

Giants | Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie questionable

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 13:07:21 -0700

Giants | Rashad Jennings ruled out

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 09:28:51 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 3 game.

Fantasy Tip: Shane Vereen and Orleans Darkwa should share playing time at running back this week with Vereen likely to be the starter at the position. Vereen likely will have more value in fantasy leagues and can be a decent flex option for owners. Darkwa probably should only be an option for desperate owners in deeper leagues.
