    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (arm) is expected to be back with the team in 2017 as long as his rehab from a torn triceps continues to go well, according to beat writer Jordan Raanan.

    Huddle Up: If Vereen returns, he should immediately become a factor in the passing game and have flex value in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 12/18/2016 9:01am ET

    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (concussion) is active for Week 15's game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Vereen was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and had been listed as questionable on the injury report. He is expected to receive limited touches this afternoon and could have a role in the passing game but is too much of a risk to depend on for production in the fantasy playoffs.

  • Posted: 12/12/2016 7:55am ET

    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (concussion) played three snaps Sunday, Dec. 11, before leaving with a concussion.

    Huddle Up: That would explain why he only had two targets. Check back for updates. If he receives clearance, he's a flex option in PPR leagues.

  • Posted: 12/10/2016 9:43am ET

    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) was activated from the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 10.

    Huddle Up: It is not known how many touches Vereen will receive in Week 14, but he probably will see limited snaps because he has not played since September. Owners probably should look for other options to use and can avoid Vereen because of his uncertain role.

  • Posted: 12/10/2016 7:43am ET

    Updating previous reports, New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) will be activated from injured reserve Saturday, Dec. 10, and is expected to play in Week 14's game against the Dallas Cowboys, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the team's plans.

    Huddle Up: Although Vereen's return could be a big boost to an otherwise anemic New York running game, owners in most fantasy formats would be best served avoiding him in his first action since Week 3, especially since it's uncertain how many carries he will see.

  • Posted: 12/7/2016 11:28am ET

    New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo said the team may have a package of plays for RB Shane Vereen (triceps) if he is ready to play in Week 14. Vereen's status will be determined Saturday, Dec. 10.

    Huddle Up: Vereen has not been able to play since September because of his injury but has been able to practice over the last few weeks. He probably would see limited touches if he is active for Week 14 and probably should be avoided in most leagues.

  • Posted: 12/7/2016 9:40am ET

    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) is practicing again Wednesday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Vereen could come off the PUP this week, but it's hard to trust him his first week back in fantasy. The Giants also take on the Dallas Cowboys this week.

  • Posted: 11/30/2016 9:40am ET

    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) returned to practice Wednesday, Nov. 30. The team has 21 days to activate him from the Reserve/Injured list.

    Huddle Up: There are still some hurdles to clear, but Vereen is a sneaky stash option with the potential for him to return soon.

  • Posted: 11/28/2016 11:14am ET

    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) may be able to return to practice this week, although head coach Ben McAdoo told reporters he is taking a wait-and-see approach before making a decision.

    Huddle Up: Vereen is still on the Reserve/Injured list and may not return this season, but the Giants are reportedly eyeing a Week 14 return, which means he'll need to start practicing pretty soon. If Vereen makes it back, he'll likely take the place of Paul Perkins and return to his usual pass-catching role. In such a case, Vereen could return the same kind of RB3 value he had prior to his injury.

  • Posted: 11/27/2016 8:15am ET

    The New York Giants are hoping that RB Shane Vereen (triceps) will be able to return from injured reserve Dec. 11.

    Huddle Up: Although Vereen averaged 4.7 yards per carry when healthy, he is only worthy of stashing in deep seasonal leagues at this point, if you can afford the roster space.

  • Posted: 11/9/2016 10:50pm ET

    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) is eligible to return to practice, but there have been no indications Vereen is ready to return. He was placed on the Reserve/Injured Designated to Return list with a torn triceps Sept. 27. 'Haven't had those conversations yet,' head coach Ben McAdoo said Wednesday, Nov. 6.

    Huddle Up: Vereen averaged 4.7 yards per carry this season when active, but there is no sense stashing him away in most fantasy leagues right now. Wait for a more definitely timetable before using a roster spot on him unless you have super deep benches and can afford the spot.

  • Posted: 11/7/2016 10:42am ET

    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) has a 'good chance' to reap term before the end of the season, according to The Bergen Record's Art Stapleton.

    Huddle Up: Stapleton admits the Giants will have a better idea about Vereen around Thanksgiving. Despite the optimism, the scatback was eligible to return to practice last week and did not, and it makes sense he would only be allowed to return if New York is still in the playoff race when he is ready, which is far from a sure thing. Owners in deeper leagues can stash Vereen if they like, but it is just as likely that rookie Paul Perkins has already emerged as the main back by the time Vereen is cleared.

  • Posted: 9/27/2016 1:37pm ET

    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: As has previously been stated, Bobby Rainey and Orleans Darkwa should see increased roles with Vereen sidelined, with Rashad Jennings maintaining his starting role as long as he's healthy. Paul Perkins could even start to manage a few touches per game, but his fantasy value is still minimal. Rainey is the better bet in PPR formats and should be claimed off waivers, especially by those who have Vereen on their roster.

  • Posted: 9/26/2016 1:06pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) is expected to take two months to recover from triceps surgery, according to sources. He could be placed on the Reserve/Injured list and then come off later.

    Huddle Up: Vereen will still miss several weeks assuming he does go through with the surgery. Rashad Jennings, Orleans Darkwa and Bobby Rainey will all see upticks in their workloads, but Rainey seems like the favorite to take over pass-catching duties out of the backfield. He is a top waiver wire consideration this week, especially for those who own Vereen.

  • Posted: 9/26/2016 10:31am ET

    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) will miss the rest of the season with a triceps injury that will require surgery.

    Huddle Up: Vereen turned 13 touches into 95 yards and a touchdown and was still in the game on the Giants' final offensive play in Week 3, so it is unclear when he suffered the injury. His loss stings a team that was already missing Rashad Jennings due to a thumb injury. Rookie Paul Perkins is the player that should slide into Vereen's role, but it appears New York doesn't believe he is ready yet. If Jennings is out again Week 4, expect Orleans Darkwa to get the start and Bobby Rainey to absorb Vereen's complementary role.

  • Posted: 9/26/2016 4:28am ET

    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen had 11 carries for 67 yards and a touchdown in a 29-27 loss to the Washington Redskins Sunday, Sept. 25.

    Huddle Up: The problem with using Vereen on a regular basis is it looks like the Giants may have a RB by committee approach. Orleans Darkwa had a touchdown as well and ran for 53 yards. Stay away for the moment until the Giants sort out who will carry the ball the most.
