Fantasy Impact
Vereen will miss the rest of the 2016 season with a triceps injury. He served as New York's primary receiver out of the backfield and will likely be replaced by Orleans Darkwa or Bobby Rainey. Paul Perkins could also be in the mix for touches as the Giants sort out their running back depth chart without Vereen.

With Rashad Jennings out due to injury in Week 3, Shane Vereen impressed in the Giants' 29-27 loss to the Redskins. Vereen ran for 67 yards and one TD on just 11 attempts and added 28 receiving yards on two receptions. He was also targeted five times by Eli Manning in the passing game. Vereen, did however, fumble twice, losing the ball to the Redskins once.

Fantasy Impact
Vereen was a great PPR Flex option in Week 3 with Jennings out. Should Jennings miss additional time, Vereen will hold value in PPR and deeper standard leagues, given his Week 3 performance (provided he can contain his fumbling issues).

With Rashad Jennings inactive for Week 3, Shane Vereen will see the bulk of the action at RB for the Giants.

Fantasy Impact
In Week 2, Vereen got a game-high 14 carries with Jennings playing. Without his backfield mate, Vereen should do well in a plus matchup against a weak Washington defense. Consider him a definite RB3/flex play in standard leagues and a low-end RB2 in PPR.
