2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Taken in the 2nd round of the 2011 draft, Vereen was expected to earn a role in the Patriots backfield committee last season but nagging injuries caused him to miss time in training camp and throughout the season. At season’s end, he had accumulated just 15 rushes for 57 yards and a score in five games. Fellow rookie Stevan Ridley surpassed him on the depth chart and Vereen enters 2012 competing with Danny Woodhead and Joseph Addai for the role as Ridley’s backup and as a pass receiving threat out of the backfield. Since we can all assume that New England will use each player in a situational role, Vereen will need to clearly beat out Woodhead and Addai to earn 8-10 touches a game and that seems unlikely. Woodhead has been productive in limited opportunities during his two years with the team and will likely approach the six touches per game he had last season. While Vereen is clearly the player to own rather than Woodhead or Addai given his upside, he also clearly ranks behind Ridley. He is a late round pick in redraft formats and has more value as a prospect in dynasty leagues.

Giants Depth Chart
News From The Past 90 Days
Rashad Jennings listed as Giants starting RB     -- Tue Sep 8 10:55 am --

Still a risky Week 1 play versus Cowboys
Paul Schwartz reports on Twitter that Rashad Jennings is listed as the starting running back on the Giants' initial depth chart. Jennings started the first three preseason games as well before rotating series evenly with Andre Williams, who's made strides to improve his play on passing downs. (Twitter)

FF Today's Take: It's still looking an awful lot like running back by committee. Jennings is a risky RB2 play even in a good matchup Week 1 against the Cowboys, and both Williams and Shane Vereen could emerge as viable flex options.
