Rashad Jennings is the lead back, and Paul Perkins has many of the same skills as Vereen, but Jennings is a capable receiving back if given a chanceI like Ridley as a sleeper this season due to the Lions' need for a goal-line/short-yardage back
Raju Byfield

The Giants backfield is a mess and Vereen should be no more than a 6-10 touch per game player.

Role limited to passing down specialist.

Vareen is much like many of the other pass-catching backs in fantasy football. He will pretty consistently put up five or six points, but he will never get enough touches to be worth starting. Even if Rashad Jennings goes down, he will have to fend off Paul Perkins, Orleans Darkwa and Andre Williams. You are better off looking elsewhere.We know who Ridley can be if he is given enough touches, and while injuries have hindered him of late, he may be afforded the opportunity to become a relevant fantasy back again this season for Detroit. At this point, Abdullah is expected to be the change of pace back, grabbing 10-12 carries per game. That means it is between Ridley and Zenner for the big-back role and plenty of carries in and out of the red zone.
