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
Are the Giants ditching RBBC?
RB coach wants better rhythm to running game
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Aug 2, 2:00 pm

New York Giants
The Giants have no intention of continuing the ill-conceived four-man running back rotation that doomed their rushing attack for most of last season. At least at the start, they plan to hand Rashad Jennings the ball. That's the ideal scenario, running backs coach Craig Johnson said. They want to ride Jennings like they did over the final four games last year. (SNY.tv)

FFToday's Take: This is kind of news tidbit that can spike a player's ADP. Reading into The RB coaches comments, the initial gameplan is less bodies in the committee with Jennings operating as the lead back, Shane Vereen working on third downs and in the two-minute offense, and Andre Williams giving Jennings a breather when needed. At 31 years-old, Jennings durability will be a big question mark but his share of expected touches appears to be increasing.


Giants running back discussion
Beat writers discuss workload of Jennings and Vereen
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jul 5, 9:00 am

New York Giants
Rashad Jennings is likely to be the primary running back on first and second downs, given his ability to run, block and catch out of the backfield. I would expect him to get around 15-18 carries a game. I think the Giants will look to pick up where they left off last season with Rashad Jennings being the main ball carrier and Shane Vereen as the change of pace/third down back. (Giants.com)

FFToday's Take: The consensus of the Giants beat reporters is that Rashad Jennings are the leaders for touches headed into training camp with Jennings being the lead option on early downs and Vereen operating as the third-down back. Rookie Paul Perkins is the dark horse and someone for redraft leaguers to monitor as a free agent pickup or a late-round flier.
