I don't think Jonas Gray will be able to duplicated what he did last week against the Lions defense. Vereen should be called on to handle a few more touches out of the backfield but he's still hard to trust.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Murray had 128 yards rushing and a touchdown the last time he faced the Giants, he should be a Top-5 fantasy option coming off the bye week against a Giants team that allows the most fantasy points to running backs.
Vereen should have good flex value against a Lions D that is 10th against fantasy running backs.
