Giants | Peyton Hillis has concussion

Sun, 09 Nov 2014 19:15:18 -0800

New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis (head) suffered a concussion during the team's Week 10 game Sunday, Nov. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Hillis will now have to pass concussion protocol before he can play in Week 11. If Hillis is forced to miss time, Andre Williams will have to take on an even larger role, especially if Rashard Jennings is still not ready to return.

Giants | Andre Williams to continue to share

Fri, 07 Nov 2014 07:41:38 -0800

New York Giants RB Andre Williams is expected to continue to lose carries to RBs Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox.

Fantasy Tip: Williams ($3,800; 7.6% of your cap) had 12 carries in a lopsided game last week and faces a tough Seattle Seahawks defense in Week 10. Rashad Jennings (knee) is on the mend, so Williams' fantasy light is dimming. Look elsewhere this week on FantasyScore. Hillis and Cox aren't worth the flier.

Giants | Peyton Hillis favored on passing downs

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 11:18:03 -0700

New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis played 31 snaps in the team's Week 6 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles because the coaching staff doesn't yet trust RB Andre Williams on passing downs. Williams and Hillis are expected to share the workload in the backfield without RB Rashad Jennings (knee) again in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Hillis should see a healthy amount of snaps again this weekend, especially if the Giants fall behind again and are forced to air it out. He's intriguing and probably worth a flier because of his cheap FantasyScore price of $3,200 (6.4% of cap), but Dallas' recently stout run defense will make him a risk.

Giants | Rashad Jennings ruled out

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 10:44:41 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) will definitely not play in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Jennings sprained the medial collateral ligament in his knee in Week 5. The team is hoping he can return after their bye week. RBs Andre Williams and Peyton Hillis will be relied on again, and Hillis could see additional snaps if QB Eli Manning is under heavy pressure.

Fantasy Tip: Hillis actually played more snaps than Williams last weekend. An improved Dallas defensive front against a shaky Giants offensive line could spell trouble for the running game for the second straight week. Williams ($5,100; 10.2% of cap) is a shaky investment at FantasyScore.

Giants | Rashad Jennings won't need surgery

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 13:03:50 -0700

Updating previous reports, New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) will not need surgery to fix a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee. However, he's expected to miss at least a few weeks due to the injury. RB Andre Williams will take over as the starting running back in the meantime, with RB Peyton Hillis as the backup. Williams ran for 65 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries after taking over for Jennings in Week 5. Jennings compared this injury to the one he had in Week 1 in 2012, which kept him sidelined for two games.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously you'll want to stay away from Jennings at FantasyScore for at least a few weeks, but Williams should be a popular waiver wire acquisition leading up to Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles will give Williams a tasty matchup, too.

Giants | Peyton Hillis moves up the depth chart

Tue, 05 Aug 2014 11:20:54 -0700

New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis has moved up to the No. 2 RB on the team's depth chart with RB Andre Williams as the No. 3 RB.

Fantasy Tip: If Williams continues to play like he did in the team's first preseason game, he will move up the depth chart and his fantasy football value will continue to rise.

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 05:26:14 -0700

New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis handled the bulk of the repetitions with the second-team offense Thursday, July 31. RB Michael Cox is also in the mix. RB Andre Williams continued to receive most of the goal line carries.

Fantasy Tip: Whoever wins the backup spot has RB5 value.

Giants | David Wilson's career likely over

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 07:48:17 -0700

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) "needs a miracle" from his surgeon's evaluation to be able to continue his playing career, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson had some value as a RB4 or RB5. However, his career, and obviously his fantasy prospects for 2014, are in serious doubt. Andre Williams, Peyton Hillis or Michael Cox could elevate to RB5 status.

Giants | Andre Williams could be part of rotation to start the year

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 18:46:26 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Williams could unseat RB Peyton Hillis as the power back by the start of the year and become a part of a three-man rotation with RB Rashad Jennings and RB David Wilson, according to Giants.com writers John Schmeelk and Dan Salomone.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings is the favorite to be the featured back, but with Wilson's injury history, there is a chance Williams could carve out a worthwhile role in the offense. He probably isn't worth drafting at this point, but he is worth keeping an eye on to see how his role develops.

Giants | RB roles clearer

Fri, 22 Nov 2013 14:57:58 -0800

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin doesn't expect to change things up when it comes to the roles of his running backs. Last week against the Green Bay Packers, RB Andre Brown was the lead back with RB Brandon Jacobs serving as the goal-line and short-yardage option. Brown had 18 carries for 75 percent of the workload, with Jacobs having five touches. RB Michael Cox will likely continue to be used on special teams, meaning RB Peyton Hillis would be inactive for the second straight week.

Fantasy Tip: Now that Jacobs has the lead role, he's basically a must-start, especially with a juicy matchup against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 12. Jacobs will be inconsistent in his production, making him a flex play in deep leagues.

Giants | Peyton Hillis likely to be big part of Week 10 plans

Wed, 06 Nov 2013 20:38:58 -0800

New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis is expected to be a big part of the team's plan for Week 10 against the Oakland Raiders. Hillis is expected to be the primary option, with RBs Andre Brown and Brandon Jacobs sprinkled into the equation. "I'm pretty sure they are going to switch us in, switch us out," Brown said Wednesday, Nov. 6.

Fantasy Tip: For fantasy purposes, Hillis is your best best as a low-end RB2 or flex play, followed by Jacobs. Brown isn't worth using in any fantasy format, as he makes his way back from injury. However, monitor the situation and be ready to grab him off the waiver wire if he plays better than expected. The job is likely an open competition right now, with the hot hand getting the bulk of the carries going forward.

Giants | David Wilson not cleared yet

Mon, 04 Nov 2013 13:24:26 -0800

Updating a previous report, an MRI showed RB David Wilson (neck) significant improvement in his recovery from a neck injury, but he has not been cleared to resume football activities at this point. Wilson will undergo another evaluation in a few weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson will be out for a few more weeks, so Andre Brown, Peyton Hillis and Brandon Jacobs will handle the carries for now. Brown is expected to be activated this week and should be owned in all leagues. Hillis and Jacobs likely will see their fantasy value drop because of the return of Brown. If you've been stashing Wilson, this might be the time to give up if you're in need of the roster space.

Giants | Andre Brown fully healthy

Tue, 29 Oct 2013 16:25:24 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Brown (leg) is 100 percent healthy and recovered from his fractured left leg, but he said he will wear a protective shin guard "for the rest of my career." Head coach Tom Coughlin said he's "going to have to wait and see" when Brown will return. It's unclear if RBs Peyton Hillis and Brandon Jacobs will have a roster spot when Brown returns.

Fantasy Tip: It appears as if Brown is much closer to returning than David Wilson (neck). Brown could return in Week 10. Grab him off the waiver wire now and stash him if he's still available.

Giants | Unlikely to release Peyton Hillis

Mon, 28 Oct 2013 14:03:06 -0700

The New York Giants likely will not release RB Peyton Hillis when RB Andre Brown (leg) is activated because he has been running the ball well and has been a good blocker and receiver in the passing game.
