Vereen is going to get more work going forward simply by virtue of the lack of receiving options for the Giants. As we saw from the end of the Chargers game, the Giants pretty much have to use Vereen as a pass-catching option consistently going forward. The Broncos are elite against opposing running backs, but they've allowed three running backs to catch at least four passes against them. That means Vereen could have RB3 value in PPR leagues, though he's not much of a consideration in standard formats.

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.
