The Patriots have added LeGarrette Blount and Leon Washington to their backfield mix this offseason, but replacing Danny Woodhead's role in the passing game and on third down appears to be Shane Vereen's job to lose.
Considering his late-season production and the fact that Danny Woodhead is out of the way, Vereen's prospects are looking good. He gained at least 38 total yards in six of his last nine games and scored three TDs in that span. We currently have him ranked as the #31 RB in standard formats and #24 in PPR. Woodhead quietly finished as fantasy football's #25 RB in 2012, so Vereen could post similar numbers if given the same workload.
