Fantasy Impact
In his first official practice since injuring his triceps in Week 3, Vereen "caught some balls," according to head coach Ben McAdoo. With the window for a return ajar, Vereen will have to prove to the medical and training staffs that his recovery remains on track over the next few weeks. Assuming status quo reigns (which is never a guarantee in the NFL) and he receives the go-ahead, he would likely take on a pass-catching role as a complement to No. 1 RB Rashad Jennings as the Giants make their playoff push.

Fantasy Impact
Vereen practiced Wednesday and is eyeing a Dec. 11 return against Dallas. He will likely resume his role as the team's primary receiver out of the backfield and as Rashad Jennings' primary backup. At the tail end of the fantasy football campaign, he has minimal value unless Jennings is plagued by injury.
