Patriots RB Shane Vereen racks up 60 yards of total offense

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/14) Patriots running back Shane Vereen posted 60 yards of total offense in his team's 34-9 victory over the Lions in Week 12.

On the opening drive of the third quarter, Vereen came down with a 17-yard reception and on the following play, ripped a 9-yard run -- his longest gains of the day. He carried the ball eight times for 12 yards. He also caught eight of nine targets for 48 yards. He has 353 receiving yards on the year.

The Patriots will face the Packers in Week 13.

Patriots RB Shane Vereen totals 77 yards in Week 11 win

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/16/14) Patriots running back Shane Vereen gained 18 yards on his only carry Sunday while catching all four of his targets for 59 yards in his team's 42-20 win over the Colts in Week 11.

Vereen was soundly usurped by Jonas Gray (38 carries, 199 yards, four TDs) in the running game but continued to contribute as a passing-game weapon. His previous low in carries this season was five. Vereen has still racked up 633 yards and four touchdowns in 10 games going into next Sunday's Week 12 matchup with the Lions.

Patriots RB Shane Vereen limited, but finds end zone

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/2/14) Patriots running back Shane Vereen was limited Week 9, but still managed to find the end zone.

Vereen gained just 29 rushing yards on 11 carries. He received more of an even split with Jonas Gray after being marginalized last week, though it didn't really matter. Vereen did manage to make an impact in the passing game. He hauled in five receptions for 38 yards and a score. 

Vereen is on a bye Week 10.

Shane Vereen getting more looks near the goal-line

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/2/14) Patriots running back Shane Vereen had little success in the running game in Week 9, but continued to show he can be a dangerous option out of the backfield in a 43-21 win over the Broncos.

Vereen was held to just 29 rushing yards on 11 carries, his third game with fewer than 30 rushing yards in four opportunities. However, he hauled in five passes in the game for 38 yards and scored on a 5-yard reception from Tom Brady in the second quarter, his third receiving touchdown in as many games.

Though he averages 4.5 yards per carry, it is clear the Patriots simply don't view Vereen as a No. 1 running back. His value comes from his ability to catch passes out of the backfield, so it is a good thing Brady is starting to look his way near the end zone. He should be viewed as a solid Fantasy option, though clearly a step up in PPR formats once the team returns from it's Week 10 bye. 

Shane Vereen a better choice than Jonas Gray

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/29/14) By giving the previously unknown Jonas Gray 17 carries for 86 yards Week 8 against Chicago, the Patriots revealed that they'll stick with a two-man backfield even with preferred rusher Stevan Ridley out for the year with a torn ACL and MCL.

But Week 9 against Denver might be a better matchup for preferred receiver Shane Vereen, who also thrived in Week 7 against the Jets. The Broncos, like the Jets, have done a good job stopping the run this season. They rank No. 1, in fact, allowing 72.4 yards per game.

Plus, the Patriots will most likely have to throw more than usual just to keep up with the league's highest-scoring team. These days, a team's only real choice against Peyton Manning is to beat him at his own game.

So most likely, Gray will spend much of Week 9 on the sidelines while Vereen spends much of it in the backfield. Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank Vereen among their top 20 running backs for this week.
