Shane Vereen barely used against Broncos

Shane Vereen saw just one carry and gained four yards on Sunday night against the Broncos. He did not receive a target.

Fantasy Impact

It looked like a good spot for Vereen, in that the Giants had almost no healthy wide receivers and were expected to be trailing. But they controlled the game from the start and ran the ball effectively with Orleans Darkwa. Vereen is just a desperation RB3 in PPR leagues, including next week against Seattle.

Shane Vereen accumulates 45 yards in Giants loss

Shane Vereen carried the ball five times for 18 yards and caught four passes for 27 yards during the Giants' loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Vereen wasn't very impactful but he could very well be in line for more touches in an offense that has went from being overflowing with weapons to suddenly deficit of them. Following the Giants' top three Wide Receivers getting injured, including Odell Beckham being likely lost for the season, the Giants will need all hands on deck to keep the offense for this 0-5 team afloat. Vereen could see more touches and an offense focused around him as he is, for now, suddenly the veteran of the group.

Shane Vereen totals 25 yards in loss to Tampa Bay

Shane Vereen had a minor role in the Giants' offense in their Week 4 matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Vereen carried the ball five times for 14 yards and caught one pass for 11 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Vereen was clearly behind in the pecking order to starter Paul Perkins, who left with an injury, and rookie rusher Wayne Gallman. He was also a secondary option in a Giants' passing game that saw Eli Manning mostly target his trio of talented Wide Receivers.

Shane Vereen has just three touches against Eagles

Shane Vereen had a limited role in the Giants' last-second loss to the Eagles on Sunday. Vereen had just one rushing attempt for five yards and two receptions for 18 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Vereen was clearly the third back on the Giants' depth chart today and with a renewed effort to feed their wide receivers, Vereen saw fewer targets out of the backfield as a result. Orleans Darkwa was injured late and if he's unable to go next week, Vereen could have a larger impact on the offense.

Shane Vereen the Giants' leading rusher in 24-10 loss

Shane Vereen showed his versatility both in carrying and catching the ball despite the Giants' crushing loss to the Detroit Lions. Vereen had the most carries, six, and gained 28 yards rushing. The Cal product also caught three passes for 27 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Vereen is a solid weapon and might be the Giants' most effective rusher despite the O-Line's issues. However, the other passing targets around him and ineffectiveness of the Giants' offense makes him hard to be seen as much more than depth on deep PPR teams.
