Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Vereen is going to be the Pierre Thomas of this offense and with Tom Brady liking to throw the ball a lot, Vereen has a ton of upside as a pass catcher in this offense.
I think Woodhead has the best chance to put up numbers on the Cardinals, because they are incredibly good at stopping the run. Woodhead in the passing game may be their best bet when it comes to involving their running backs.

Reading how this backfield will shake out has been tough, but Vereen vs. and uninspiring LB corps in Miami should do positive things for your fantasy team. A ranking just above Le'Veon is justified this week.
