Giants | Rashad Jennings should remain lead back

Thu, 12 May 2016 13:55:08 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is expected to be the workhorse running back and receive the majority of carries in 2016, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. Jennings saw 48.3% of the Giants' carries last season, but Vacchiano expects that to increase this season.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings actually ran for a career-high 863 yards on a career-high 195 carries last season, although the four total touchdowns left something to be desired. He even notched a career-high 296 receiving yards. If he remains healthy and maintains his status as New York's lead running back, he's worth drafting as a high-end RB3.

Giants | Rashad Jennings goes out on high note

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 18:04:46 -0800

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings had 27 carries for 170 yards and a touchdown in a 35-30 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: After disappointing most of the year, Jennings topped 70 yards in each of the final four games, averaging 108 yards per game during the stretch. If he opens next year in a similar role, he could be a borderline RB2.

Giants | Rashad Jennings has strong game

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 21:26:45 -0800

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings rushed 14 times for 74 yards in the Week 16 game against the Minnesota Vikings, and he added two catches for 62 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings might have been held out of the end zone, but he piled up an impressive yardage total and he has emerged as a decent RB2 or flex play down the stretch.

Giants | Rashad Jennings logs first 100-yard game

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 16:46:31 -0800

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings topped 100 yards rushing for the first time this season, finishing with 107 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries in a 38-35 loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: His best performance of the year came against one of the stingiest defenses in the NFL, and Jennings has topped 80 yards rushing in back-to-back games. Despite the recent success, it is hard to trust him at FantasyScore given his lackluster overall numbers.

Giants | Rashad Jennings steps up game

Mon, 14 Dec 2015 22:30:03 -0800

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings carried 22 times for 81 yards in the Week 14 game against the Miami Dolphins Monday, Dec. 14. He also had two grabs for 21 yards.

Fantasy Tip: The 102 total yards from scrimmage likely helped plenty of fantasy owners in standard formats to bonus points, but it would have been nice if he could find the end zone. Still, his rushing yardage was a season high, as were his total yards from scrimmage. Things will be much more difficult in Week 15 against the unbeaten Carolina Panthers.

Giants | NYG struggle to run the ball

Sun, 06 Dec 2015 19:50:58 -0800

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa ran eight times for a team-high 23 yards in the Week 13 game against the New York Jets, and he had a 10-yard catch. RB Andre Williams rushed six times for 22 yards, while RB Rashad Jennings had five totes for 14 yards and a 19-yard catch. RB Shane Vereen also had four runs for 13 yards and two grabs for seven yards.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants wanted to run the ball more effectively in Week 13, but not one piece of the four-player monster really seemed to be able to build any momentum. The Giants backfield is a fantasy nightmare, so stay away.

Giants | Rashad Jennings not posting big stats

Sat, 05 Dec 2015 07:24:14 -0800

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings has not rushed for more than 63 yards in any game this season.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has seen limited touches lately and is part of a committee at the position. Jennings has seen some work in the passing game as well but should not be a fantasy option against the New York Jets this week.

Giants | Rashad Jennings not terribly involved

Sun, 01 Nov 2015 19:08:02 -0800

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings carried 10 times for 54 yards in the Week 8 game against the New Orleans Saints, and he posted two receptions for 31 yards on three targets.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) had 85 total yards from scrimmage which isn't terrible, but the run game wasn't a huge part of the plan in a pass-happy shootout. At this price level he is still a strong FantasyScore option.

Giants | Orleans Darkwa turning heads

Wed, 28 Oct 2015 20:54:23 -0700

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa scored the team's only offensive touchdown in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys, and he likely earned more playing time at the expense of RBs Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams. "He certainly did look good out there," head coach Tom Coughlin said after the win. "His touchdown run when he cut back behind the slanting defensive line was really quite an outstanding play."

Fantasy Tip: Darkwa ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) isn't quite worth using in FantasyScore yet, but monitor this situation closely. The former Tulane standout could emerge as a useful option sooner rather than later if he continues to turn heads.

Giants | Orleans Darkwa to see more touches?

Mon, 26 Oct 2015 09:51:31 -0700

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa had played on just two offensive snaps heading into Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys, but he was the leading rusher in the preseason by averaging 4.4 yards per carry. Offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo was non-committal if Darkwa would see more work behind RBs Rashad Jennings, Shane Vereen and Andre Williams.

Fantasy Tip: That question was answered: Darkwa had eight carries for 48 yards and a touchdown against Dallas. While he could continue to be mixed in, the G-Men just have too many mouths to feed for Darkwa to continue to be anything more than a deep sleeper option for FantasyScore users.
