Giants claiming Vereen will be used more than just a passing down specialist.

- Sablich Brothers, The NY Times

 
With a likely 55/45% touches split between Rashad Jennings and Shane Vereen, along with Andre Williams getting the call for goal line carries, this is a true RBBC situation that fantasy owners want to avoid this season. Jennings, Vereen, and Williams are RB3 at best.

- Jeff Boggis, Fantasy Football Empire

 
Splitting time with Jennings in the NYG backfield. It's hard to pinpoint how much usage he will get but in PPR leagues he has more value. I would temper expectations here and look for 500 combined yards with 4 TDs.

- James Hatfield, Hatty Waiver Wire Guru

 
Vereen is a good player who could never get any semblance of continuity from game to game under Bill Belichick. That might have helped the Patriots win a Super Bowl, but it did not help Vereen's fantasy numbers. In New York he should have a more stable presence as the main receiving back on an up tempo offense. I'll be grabbing Vereen in all the PPR leagues I can manage and if I can get him at value in non-PPR I'll have no qualms queuing him up.

- Chet Gresham, WalterFootball

Chris Ivory should be the main back in New York, but there will be a competition for carries and Ridley has a shot at winning the job. I'm betting on Ivory, but Ridley is a nice backup plan before we are 100% sure of the pecking order.
