I’m the new Kevin Faulk Juan…

Shane Vereen is starting to get more and more reps in the high flying Patriot offense.  He looked great in the Pats first preseason game and after Ridley has put the ball on the turf in consecutive days, Vereen starting get more reps.  Ridley fumbled and was benched in 2011, so this is slightly worrisome.  Remember that Belichick was spoiled with BJGE, who never lost a fumble in the NFL.  Shane Vereen was already going to be moving up my rankings, especially in PPR leagues as he should assume the Kevin Faulk-role in the offense.  A situation to definitely monitor.
