Vereen, who saw extra work last week with Stevan Ridley's fumbling issues striking again, delivered a very fantasy-friendly 91 yards, with 60 of those coming on eight catches. He's a must-start in PPR formats right now, and a solid flex consideration for standard leagues.
This week, the Pats draw a tough Houston defense, but there's no need to fear deploying Vereen in this or any matchup, particularly if you get points for catches. As long as he's healthy, he's good to go, and with Ridley likely to be marginalized by Bill Belichick after fumbling in three straight games, Vereen's going to see more and more of a featured role on offense.
