Last week's 12-touch game appears to have been an exception, not a rule, as it was the only contest out of the past six in which Vereen recorded double-digit touches. It's been feast or famine all season for the shifty, pass-catching back, with three eight-catch games on the season, but eight games of two or fewer receptions. The
Shane Vereen carried four times for 29 yards in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. He also snagged eight of 10 targets for 43 yards and a touchdown.
The game flow Sunday played out perfectly for Vereen, as the New York Giants fell behind big and turned to the pass-catching back to help climb out of the hole. Vereen has flashed at times this season, but his specific role in the offense limits his usage and upside from week to week. The flow of the game will likely dictate his role once again in Week 16 against the Vikings.
Shane Vereen caught one of his two targets for 10 yards and had one carry for no yards Monday night against the Dolphins.
The New York Giants leaned heavily on Rashad Jennings and Vereen didn't see many snaps. Perhaps Vereen will have a bigger role against the Panthers in Week 15 given the likely game-flow.
Shane Vereen rushed four times for 13 yards and caught two of three targets for seven receiving yards Sunday against the Jets.
Vereen was never expected to make a big impact rushing the ball, but he hasn't done much as a receiver over the last four weeks either, failing to reach even 30 receiving yards. With the New York Giants splitting the backfield touches between Vereen, Rashad Jennings, Andre Williams and Orleans Darkwa, there's little upside to be seen.
Shane Vereen caught four passes off of five targets for 21 yards in Sunday's loss to Washington. He added two carries for 15 yards.
Vereen has now caught at least four passes in three of the New York Giants ' past four games. He has failed to find the end zone for the second consectuive game, however, after scoring three touchdowns during a five-game stretch. The Giants' deep stable of backs makes it difficult for any member to be a legitimate fantasy contributor. Vereen's 40 receptions on the season likely makes him the most reliable of the bunch, particuarly in PPR leagues.
