Vereen has explosive talent and a big role but health continues to be a factor.
Woodhead doesn't have amazing upside but he has a role and is versatile. That's enough to get him ahead of some other backs who might have seemingly more secure roles.
  
Brandon Funston
Yahoo! Sports
Love his schedule, and even in off-day for NE in W1, still managed a solid fantasy line (71 YFS, TD)
 
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Outsnaps Ridley 26 to 6 in third preseason game.
PPR's 12th best back in 2013. Can be RB3 useful in standard formats as well.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Patriots are likely to be a crowded backfield in 2014. Vereen should be the third down back with the most value. Stevan Ridley secured a victory when RB LeGarrette Blount signed with Pittsburgh, but expect Ridley to face competition in training camp, because of his past fumbling problems.
Woodhead is going to be in a committee role with RB Ryan Matthews and RB Donald Brown, which means he should be a RB3 to RB4 in 2014 with higher value in PPR leagues.
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
I nice value pick at RB, especially if you wait on drafting your #1 RB.
 
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Shane Vereen looks like the back to own in New England and if he can somehow manage to stay healthy he can scoop up 200 plus carries and 70 plus receptions making him a player with RB1 upside, especially in PPR formats.
Danny Woodhead set a career high for receptions last season but saw his role dwindle down the stretch as Ryan Mathews finally delivered on his potential. He remains a PPR asset but is no more than an upside flex option at the time being.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Vereen should be the main pass catching back for the Patriots. He has tremendous upside, but will have some down games with Belichick's varying offensive schemes.
 
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
Vereen will plenty of value as the multi-purpose back for the Patriots but he should excel in PPR leagues. Ridley is the early down runner for now but don't bite on him with rookie James White waiting in the wings to take his snaps. Vereen is the only trust worthy back in New England.
The Charger's backfield is getting tighter with the addition of Donald Brown but Woodhead's role should remain intact.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
We absolutely loved Shane Vereen last season as we pegged him as our Biggest 2013 Fantasy Football Sleeper. We felt good after his dominate Week 1 performance before going down to injury. In 10 games last season he still managed 761 Total yards with 7 Touchdowns. With Aaron Dobson slated to start camp on the PUP list alongside Gronkowski, expect Vereen to line up as RB, Slot-WR and Outside-WR. That being said, Vareen will see touches one way or the other. Look for him to be an X-Factor for the New England Offense. Be prepared for a breakout season!
 
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Questionable durability, uncertain week-to-week usage. Overrated.
Still has PPR value but won't get that many carries.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
Only consider Vereen in PPR leagues.
Woodhead is a solid PPR prospect and can't be ignored in that format.
