Fantasy Impact: It is good to see Vereen involved in the pass game as much as he was on Saturday. This is what Vereen was brought in to do and he looks to be starting to gel with Eli Manning. He won't get many touches on the ground but through the air Vereen is a strong PPR producer.

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

Vereen's landing spot in free agency will be key. He's versatile enough to be a top-25 threat, but he'll largely hold his value in PPR leagues.

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.

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.

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.

BALLER MOVE: Target in Rounds 6-8 as RB3 Current ADP: 106 STD, 68 PPR ANALYSIS: While Rashad Jennings has decent value, his age and injury history are concerns. Shane Vereen, his backfield partner, on the other hand, should provide solid value of his own as he racks up receptions. Vereen is strong and agile enough to get open... Read More

BALLER MOVE: Target in Round 7 as RB3 Current ADP: 96 STD, 68 PPR ANALYSIS: With Rashad Jennings suffering an injury every year of his career and Andre Williams‘ complete lack of passing game ability, the Giants added Shane Vereen in free agency.
