News: Vereen led New England running backs with 62 snaps on offense in Sunday's 34-9 win over the Lions, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. Vereen finished the game with eight carries for 12 yards and eight catches on nine targets for 48 yards. Impact: Meanwhile, LeGarrette Blount saw 17 snaps, while Brandon Bolden saw two and Week 11 star Jonas Gray, who was benched, after oversleeping and missing practice Friday, saw zero. While Vereen's role in the New England offense is often game-plan/game-flow dependent, he figures to remain involved enough as a pass-catcher most weeks to retain flex/PPR utility.(RotoWire, )

News: Vereen played 20 snaps in Sunday's win over the Colts, compared to 53 for Jonas Gray, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. Impact: Vereen caught 4-of-4 targets for 59 yards, adding one carry for 18 yards, while Gray exploded for a shocking 38-199-4 rushing line. The Patriots have mostly favored Vereen since Stevan Ridley (knee) went down for the season, but Gray did have 17 carries for 86 yards back in a Week 8 blowout of the Bears. In between the two strong showings, Gray had 12 carries for 33 yards against the Broncos, with much of his work coming in garbage time. While Vereen still has the same role as ever, he's in danger of losing touches, if the Patriots have renewed faith in their power running game. But, next week brings a matchup that should favor Vereen, with New England facing the excellent Lions defense.(RotoWire, )
