  • Shane Vereen Remains A Game-Flow Reliant Flex Option In Week 4

    New York Giants running back Shane Vereen saw minimal usage against a battered Philadelphia Eagles defense, hauling in 2-of-2 targets for 18 yards. The emergence of Orleans Darkwa as well as steady game-flow limited Vereen's opportunities significantly in Week 3; however, Darkwa sustained a back injury late in the contest and is doubtful to suit up against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 4. Anticipate quarterback Eli Manning to favour the check-down to rookie tight end Evan Engram as well as Vereen against a depleted Buccaneers linebacker core. Additionally, Vereen will undoubtedly lose the majority of early down work to primary running back Paul Perkins; however, if the sophomore back continues to underwhelm, anticipate an increase of snaps for Vereen. For now, the veteran pass-catching back is an extremely risky PPR flex option in Week 4.

  • Orleans Darkwa, Shane Vereen Out Thursday

    New York Giants running backs Orleans Darkwa (back) and Shane Vereen (calf) were both held out of practice again Thursday. That's two missed practices this week for both, which isn't a good sign for their availability in Week 4 against Tampa Bay. New York's backfield has been a mess behind an ineffective offensive line. The struggling Paul Perkins may be forced to lead the backfield in touches yet again, although rookie Wayne Gallman could get a shot if both Darkwa and Vereen sit out. Bottom line: This is a backfield to avoid right now.

  • Shane Vereen Misses Practice

    New York Giants running back Shane Vereen (calf) did not practice Wednesday. This isn't good to see, as Vereen has played in just eight games the last two years due to injuries. As expected, Vereen hasn't done much on the ground (seven carries for 33 yards) as New York's main pass-catching back. He has caught 14 passes for 96 yards through three games, though, and remains worth a stash in deeper PPR leagues with the Giants backfield struggling. He's a desperation flex play in PPR leagues against the Bucs in Week 4 if he plays.
