Vereen had his usual modest day Sunday with only 15 snaps and three carries for 14 yards. He failed to catch either of his two targets.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear what the future holds for Vereen as he's a free agent this offseason and turns 29 in March. Usually, third-down backs (think Danny Woodhead, Darren Sproles) age better than workhorses, so there might be some demand for Vereen's services. Wherever he lands, it can hardly be worse than the offense in which he played in 2017.

Vereen had an oddly symmetrical but unproductive day with five carries for 15 yards and five catches for 15 yards against the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Wayne Gallman has taken over as the Giants leading runner and pass-catching back, so Vereen is left to chip in at the margins.

Vereen had six carries for 23 yards, four targets, three catches and 24 receiving yards.

EDGE Analysis

Vereen is maintaining a minor role as the third-string runner and sometime third-down back.

Vereen had two carries for 13 yards and caught all three of his targets for 15 yards Sunday against the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Orleans Darkwa has firmly taken over the team's starting job with Vereen splitting the backup duties with Wayne Gallman and seeing some work on third downs.

Vereen had five carries for 11 yards and four catches for 27 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Vereen's role had shrunk the last few games, but he saw more snaps Sunday and got back involved as a pass catcher. As a third-down back, his ceiling is limited, especially in this offense.

Vereen caught three of four targets for 14 yards Sunday against the Rams. He did not record a single carry.

EDGE Analysis

That Vereen would be used so sparingly for the third straight contest despite game flow favoring the passing game does not bode well for his role in the offense. There's no reason to roster him except in leagues of oceanic depth.

Vereen had two carries for four yards and caught three of his four targets for two yards against the Seahawks Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

It's been two straight games that Vereen, despite the team's dearth of receiving options, hasn't been a factor. You'd think with Eli Manning checking it down so much Vereen would have a bigger role, but so far that hasn't happened.

Vereen had one carry for four yards, but did not receive a single target all game in Denver Sunday night.

EDGE Analysis

With the Broncos favored by 13 points before kickoff, this figured to be a game-flow favorable to Vereen, but the Giants not only had the lead all game, they ran effectively behind Orleans Darkwa. Vereen is still the team's third-down back, and the Giants still lack playmakers out wide, so he's likely to produce in games where the team finds itself at a deficit, and Sunday's performance notwithstanding, those games are coming.

Vereen nabbed four passes of five targets for 27 yards and added 18 yards on four carries in Sunday's 27-22 loss to the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

The nine touches tied a season high for Vereen, but don't be surprised if that climbs in the coming weeks. Both Paul Perkins and Orleans Darkwa are on the mend and questionable to start the week with injuries. In the meantime, the Giants' receiving options are dropping like flies. Always best used as a scat-back, Vereen might be the Giants' answer to the production lost by injuries. In fact, they seem a sprained ankle away from not having much of a choice but to lean on Vereen.

Vereen had five carries for 14 yards and one catch on two targets for 11 more yards Sunday against the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

After a busy Week 1, Vereen has seen less work as Eli Manning has elected to throw to tight end Evan Engram and possession receiver Sterling Shepard on check-downs. Vereen is still the team's third-down back, however.
