Shane Vereen: Patriots’ Offense ‘Has A Lot To Work On,’ But Season Still Young

When the New England Patriots’ offense is clicking, Shane Vereen can be one its most potent weapons. The dual-threat running back proved that last year — when he was healthy — posting 100-yard rushing and receiving performances while serving as a valuable third-down option for Tom Brady. Yet Brady and the offense aren’t exactly firing on all cylinders so far in 2014. New...

Shane Vereen finds a niche and just runs with it

Shane Vereen will probably never be the so-called “bell-cow back” for the Patriots. He knows he fits a niche in the offense that doesn’t lend itself to him carrying the ball 20-plus times a game. In fact, Vereen has had 10 or more rushing attempts in a game just five times in his career. Going forward, Vereen will be what he’ll always be on this team — a big-play threat...

Fantasy Football: Shane Vereen, Zac Stacy Among Week 2 Sits And Starts

What’s even more important than Week 1 in fantasy football? You guessed it — Week 2! We get that we’re stating the obvious, but it’s true. The NFL’s opening week is usually wildly unpredictable, as 32 teams who haven’t played a meaningful game in over half a year get their jitters out for the first time. Week 2 is when the dust begins to settle, and the same can be said...

This Sunday at 1 PM EST, the New England Patriots make their way south to open their 2014 season against the Miami Dolphins.

Shane Vereen expected to get more touches in 2014

Mike Reiss of believes Shane Vereen will get more touches in 2014. I expect more of a tandem situation at running back if everyone is healthy, with the numbers trending heavier toward Vereen. With the way Stevan Ridley struggled to hold onto the football last season,  Vereen deserves more carries. var ACE_AR = {Site: '898551', Size: '468060', CallType...
