To the extent you're forced to rely on a Giants running back, Vereen is likely your best bet. Nobody from the backfield has much of a chance to have a significant fantasy impact in light of the offensive line, but Vereen's involvement in the passing game salvages at least a modicum of value. Vereen has just six carries this year but has 12 receptions for 78 yards. Considering the Giants' difficult in running the ball, and the coaching staff's dissatisfaction with Paul Perkins, expect Vereen's snap count and involvement to rise this week against Philadelphia. It's a tough matchup in a hostile environment, so even with the added touches, Vereen is nothing more than an RB4 in any format.

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.
