Giants fans should expect a larger role for Shane Vereen in the Giants offense this year. (Source: Cover32.com)

Fantasy Impact: With no clear lead back in the Giants backfield in 2016, it's possible that Shane Vereen will see an expanded role in the offense this year. In a year where he wasn't heavily involved, he still managed 59 catches and over 750 total yards. I can see a catch total in the 70-80 range with 1000+ total yards, as he will be a key safety valve for Eli Manning. A stat line in this range would make him a steal based on his expected draft position, especially in PPR formats.

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.
