2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
While, I noted above that Vereen was mostly a disappointment during his first season in New York, that statement depends on one’s expectations heading into the season. Rashad Jennings stayed healthy and Vereen was unable to take significant carries away from him, but the former Patriot was, as expected, a big part of the passing game catching 59 balls for 495 yards and 4 touchdowns. He only received 61 carries, gaining 260 yards, and was held scoreless on the ground however. For those in PPR leagues, Vereen maintained some value but many predicted that he was talented enough to be the Giants’ featured back, and that of course never materialized. In McAdoo’s west coast style high-octane offense, Vereen should still play a major role as the passing game back and he could potentially see an expanded role with a Jennings injury and if Perkins shows he is not quite ready to step in. At 5’10” and 205 pounds Vereen is essentially the same size as Perkins, so it’s not a given that the rookie would vault over him for snaps should Jennings miss time.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Vereen re-injures triceps
Same injury cost him nine games earlier this season
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 19, 6:40 pm

New York Giants
HC Ben McAdoo on RB Shane Vereen: "Shane re-injured his triceps. It's unfortunate. He worked his tail off to get back to where he was." (Art Stapleton on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Vereen only saw five touches in the two games he returned for, so he wasn't exactly being asked to take over his early-season role, which had him working as the lead back at times. He's likely to be placed on IR shortly. Rashad Jennings and Paul Perkins will likely continue sharing work in his absence, but neither back should be expected to emerge as a fantasy starter for the remainder of the season.


Injury Shane Vereen makes quick return to practice
Concussion
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Dec 14, 1:05 pm

New York Giants
Giants running back Shane Vereen was present at practice Wednesday afternoon, just four days after he suffered a concussion. The Giants have not yet released Vereen's participation status for the session, so it is unclear where he stands in the NFL's concussion protocol. But his presence on the field is an encouraging sign for the team as they begin preparation for Sunday's home game against the NFC North-leading Lions. (NJ.com)

FFToday's Take: Shane Vereen's retun to practice this quickly is definitely a good sign of his progress within the concussion protocol. Despite Rashad Jennings' role as the lead horse in New York's backfield owners in PPR leagues may want to pay attention to status reports later in the week as Vereen fits in well with the high efficiency passing scheme being deployed by New York in recent weeks.
