    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (calf) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Vereen likely will continue to be used as mostly a receiver out of the backfield against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but probably would not be a great option for fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 9/28/2017 12:05pm ET

    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (calf) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: It appears that Vereen may be in danger of missing the Week 4 game because of the injury, so owners should monitor the situation. He has been more involved in the passing game so far this season but only has 129 total yards in three games. Paul Perkins is probably the only Giants running back with fantasy value and should be considered a flex option.

    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (calf) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: Vereen is nursing a calf injury, while Orleans Darkwa was off the field due to a back ailment. If one or neither can go, or they're limited in Week 4, it would mean Paul Perkins would see more touches.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 4:36pm ET

    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen posted two catches for 18 yards in Week 3 against the Eagles and he rushed just once for five yards.

    Huddle Up: Vereen was limited to three touches, but he still managed a critical mistake running out of bounds in a key situation to give Philadelphia extra time on the clock. Just three touches helps no fantasy players.

  • Posted: 9/18/2017 9:14pm ET

    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen rushed six times for a team-high 28 yards in Week 2 against the Detroit Lions on Monday, Sept. 18, and he added three receptions for 27 yards.

    Huddle Up: Vereen leading the team in rushing tells you a little something about how the night went for the G-Men. Vereen isn't known for his rushing, but for his hands out of the backfield. He is a tremendous PPR option in most fantasy leagues, but not terribly valuable in some standard formats. The Giants travel to Philadelphia in Week 3.

  • Posted: 9/10/2017 10:09pm ET

    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen did not have a rush attempt in Week 1 at Dallas, but he was able to contribute with nine receptions for 51 yards on 10 targets.

    Huddle Up: The run game isn't where Vereen is effective, but he does have a tremendous hands out of the backfield. Vereen remains a solid RB3 or flex option in most PPR formats. He'll look to carry over the momentum into Week 2 against Detroit.

  • Posted: 6/9/2017 11:21am ET

    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) is taking a slower approach this offseason after he admitted returning prematurely from a torn triceps last year.

    Huddle Up: Vereen will likely be playing behind Paul Perkins and splitting time with Wayne Gallman, among others. He should be mostly used in passing-down situations and thus has more value in PPR leagues as a late-round option.

  • Posted: 5/19/2017 6:54pm ET

    New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) is fully recovered after tearing his triceps twice last season.

    Huddle Up: Vereen's role is limited to passing downs, but as much as the Giants throw the ball, he is still a RB4 in PPR formats with potential as a flex option.

  • Posted: 2/9/2017 8:02pm ET

    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.
