Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Showed us last week he can make it happen and his role is big at home with a good matchup. What's not to like?

If that last game was the sample size, you have to like Vereen's odds of getting the lions share of touches but it is the Patriots, and you should never feel comfortable starting on of their running backs.

The Bears are 13th against fantasy backs, Vereen has RB2 appeal this week, although I would not expect 2 touchdowns again.
