The Giants are said to have major plans for Vareen. Whether that means he is a quality third-down pass catcher or somehow who also sees 100 touches is yet to be determined, but he is worth keeping an eye on.

Shane Vereen to have 'big' role in 2017?

New York Giants beat writer Jordan Raanan believes running back Shane Vereen will have a "significant role" in the offense in 2017.

Fantasy Impact

Vereen, who has dealt with multiple injuries since the start of the 2016 season including a lower body injury which limited him up to this point this offseason, could return to a prominent role in the Giants' offense in 2017. Although Paul Perkins remains the clear-cut starter at running back, Vereen will likely play a tremendous role in the passing game if his health remains intact. In 2015, his first year in New York in which he appeared in all 16 games, Vereen accumulated a 59-495-4 stat line while averaging 8.4 YPC. He is a prime late-round PPR target entering fantasy draft season.
