Shane Vereen posts solid game for owners in fantasy return

New England Patriots running back Shane Vereen picks up yards after the catch against the Carolina Panthers on Monday Night Football - Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

New England Patriots running back Shane Vereen caught eight passes for 65 yards in his return on Monday Night against the Carolina Panthers. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

New England Patriots running back Shane Vereen caught eight passes for 65 yards in his return on Monday Night Football. He added one rush for seven yards. Vereen looked good and didn't show any lingering effects from his wrist injury. Vereen led all Patriots receivers with targets with eleven. He averaged 8.1 yards per catch with a long reception of seventeen.

Fantasy impact: Vereen looked like he was pretty seamlessly incorporated back into the Patriots offense. The plethora of looks from Brady show he still trusts his sneaky fast running back and there is no reason to believe Vereen won't continue to get plenty of targets in the offense. LeGarrette Blount got the bulk of the carries in the run game but Vereen could get eased back in there as well. The Patriots will face the Denver Broncos in Week 12. They are giving up the twelfth most fantasy points to wide receivers and the tenth most fantasy points to running backs.
