2013 Outlook
Depth Chart
Taken in the 2nd round of the 2011 draft, Vereen was expected to earn a role in the Patriots backfield committee last season but nagging injuries caused him to miss time in training camp and throughout the season. At season’s end, he had accumulated just 15 rushes for 57 yards and a score in five games. Fellow rookie Stevan Ridley surpassed him on the depth chart and Vereen enters 2012 competing with Danny Woodhead and Joseph Addai for the role as Ridley’s backup and as a pass receiving threat out of the backfield. Since we can all assume that New England will use each player in a situational role, Vereen will need to clearly beat out Woodhead and Addai to earn 8-10 touches a game and that seems unlikely. Woodhead has been productive in limited opportunities during his two years with the team and will likely approach the six touches per game he had last season. While Vereen is clearly the player to own rather than Woodhead or Addai given his upside, he also clearly ranks behind Ridley. He is a late round pick in redraft formats and has more value as a prospect in dynasty leagues.

News From The Past 90 Days
Steelers add Blount to backfield     -- Fri Mar 28 3:23 pm --

Two-year contract
LeGarrette Blount agreed to a two-year contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers today during his visit, according to league sources. Blount, 27, also had interest from the Patriots in bringing him back, but sources say they didn't approach the financial commitment of the Steelers. (Baltimore Sun)

FF Today's Take: Blount will fill a backup role behind every-down back Le'Veon Bell in Pittsburgh. Blount's arrival won't affect Bell's status as a RB1 with upside and his departure leaves Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen as the top two options in New England.
