Giants | Rashad Jennings to be most used RB?

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 10:53:28 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is still expected to lead the Giants in touches, according to ESPN.com's Dan Graziano, despite the acquisition of RB Shane Vereen this offseason. Graziano said the Giants will give Jennings the ball as long as he can stay healthy.

Fantasy Tip: The big question for Jennings is if he can stay healthy. If he can, then he probably will end up leading New York's running backs in snaps. Vereen's role will primarily be in the passing game, while Williams will likely spot Jennings on running downs and perhaps in goal-line situations. Jennings is in low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 territory. Vereen has RB3 upside in point-per-reception leagues and Williams is more of a handcuff pick incase Jennings does get injured.

Giants | G-men likely to add RB

Wed, 21 Jan 2015 07:16:18 -0800

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings could have a veteran running back to complement or compete with him next season. The team could possibly add a change-of-pace back and a run-blocking offensive lineman in the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings served as a decent option in PPR formats, and he'll be a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3 in traditional leagues. Andre Williams saw considerable action in his rookie season, but the team's need to add another running back doesn't bode well for him on the surface. He'll be a RB4 or RB5 option.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings may be on track to play in Week 17, but owners should continue to monitor his practice participation. He would be facing a Philadelphia Eagles defense that has struggled against opposing running backs this season. Owners on FantasyScore should consider Jennings a low-end flex option because of his injury situation.
