| The oft-injured Vereen has been a disappointing, yet consistent member of the Giants since joining the team in 2015. The former Patriot averaged 6.2 fantasy points per game in each of his two years with the G-men, with 2016 being an injury-shortened campaign in which he managed to play in just five games.
He is the clear third-down back and passing option for Manning out of the backfield, with a defined role that makes him much more valuable in PPR formats than standard leagues. With no more than four touchdowns in any of his six NFL seasons, including his best year as a pro in 2013, Vereen is a fringe play for PPR owners in deep leagues.
|Changes coming to Giants offense|
More snaps for Orleans Darkwa?

|Changes are a coming. This week, they might be more noticeable than a few more snaps for running back Orleans Darkwa or a slightly altered game plan. "Yeah, we can't keep doing the same thing over and over again," coach Ben McAdoo said on his Tuesday conference call. "That's insanity. It's not working. So we are going to look to make some changes this week, like we did last week. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: The Giants offense has been anemic the first two weeks. Look for Shane Vereen and Orleans Darkwa to be more involved at the running back position but its hard to trust any Giants player, including Odell Beckham Jr. given the inefficiency they've shown early in 2017.
