Shane Vereen has three touches in perhaps last game as Giant

Shane Vereen saw a limited role this week after not having any touches last week against Arizona. Vereen carried the ball three times and gained 14 yards, being held without a reception.

Fantasy Impact

Vereen may have played his last game as a Giant, as his impact all year was minimal and didn't add any jolt to a Giants' offense that sputtered all season. Vereen still can be a solid third down back somewhere but the peak of his effectiveness may have passed.

Shane Vereen nowhere to be seen against Arizona

Shane Vereen had no carries or receptions during the Giants' 23-0 shutout against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Vereen has been an afterthought all season but it is still surprising to see him get no touches at all during a game. He could very well be a cap casualty as the Giants' head into rebuilding for 2018.

Shane Vereen has a similar output as a runner and receiver

Shane Vereen's box score looked very familiar in both the running and receiving categories. Vereen had five carries for 15 yards to go with his five receptions for 15 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Vereen received a bit more work than usual but he was still a secondary target, even on a day where Eli Manning had his most passing yards on the season, 434.

Shane Vereen has a larger presence against Cowboys

Shane Vereen saw nine total touches, tying the most he's had all season, during the Giants' 30-10 loss to the Cowboys. Vereen had six carries for 23 yards and three catches for 24 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Vereen was used a bit more heavily, especially as a runner, than usual with starter Orleans Darkwa playing in just 19 snaps. Vereen on the other hand played in 24 snaps. Still, Vereen is clearly the no. 3 runner in the RB pecking order.

Shane Vereen totals 10 yards against Oakland Raiders

Shane Vereen caught three passes for 13 yards on Sunday and carried the ball just once for -3 yards.

Fantasy Impact

The veteran receiving back has been an afterthought in the Giants' offense all season long and that continued on Sunday against the Raiders. Geno Smith pushed the ball toward his receivers and rookie TE Evan Engram and Vereen failed to see many looks as both a receiver and runner.
