Giants | Rashad Jennings could be back Week 4

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 11:32:53 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb), who missed Week 3 with a sprained thumb, could be ready to return against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 4, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: Given the Giants are less than 24 hours out from declaring their starting running back out, this optimism may be more a product of their urgency than any real progress after the team lost Shane Vereen for the season on Monday. Orleans Darkwa and Bobby Rainey figure to share touches should Jennings not be able to go, but neither player can be considered more than a desperation flex play against a very good defense.

Giants | Rashad Jennings expected back in Week 4

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 17:36:15 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) said Sunday, Sept. 25, that he understood head coach Ben McAdoo's decision to keep him out. He said his thumb feels better and he is hopeful of returning in Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: With Jennings sidelined it was Orleans Darkwa shouldering the load in the backfield for Big Blue. If Jennings is forced to miss more time Darkwa is worth a look in some deeper fantasy formats and DFS leagues.

Giants | Rashad Jennings ruled out

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 09:28:51 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 3 game.

Fantasy Tip: Shane Vereen and Orleans Darkwa should share playing time at running back this week with Vereen likely to be the starter at the position. Vereen likely will have more value in fantasy leagues and can be a decent flex option for owners. Darkwa probably should only be an option for desperate owners in deeper leagues.

Giants | Rashad Jennings unlikely to play

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 06:14:09 -0700

Contrary to a previous report, New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) is not expected to be active for Week 3's game against the Washington Redskins. RB Shane Vereen is expected to see the bulk of the snaps in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen is averaging four yards per carry and has caught six passes for 47 yards through the first two games this season. He merits consideration as a flex option in most fantasy formats.

Giants | Rashad Jennings likely to play Week 3

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 09:18:02 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (hand) is continuing to work through his sprained left thumb and done enough to make offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan believe he'll be able to play through the injury in Week 3 versus the Washington Redskins. "It's something that's not natural. He's used to doing that without the cast. … It's definitely an adjustment that we have great confidence he'll be able to make," Sullivan said.

Fantasy Tip: Sullivan did not reveal whether the injury played a role in Jennings' meager workload in Week 3 (13 carries for 27 yards). Shane Vereen (14 carries, 42 yards) was marginally better and even saw some work at the goal line, but he isn't the answer. Neither Jennings nor Vereen can considered anything better than flex plays in Week 3.

Giants | Rashad Jennings listed as questionable

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 12:36:52 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) is being listed as questionable for the team's Week 3 game Sunday, September 26, against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: After an encouraging performance in the season opener at Dallas, Jennings disappointed owners everywhere with a flat outing at home against the New Orleans Saints. It looks like he'll be entering the next contest a little hobbled -- if he plays, that is -- which could prevent him from providing RB2 numbers.

Giants | Rashad Jennings limited

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 13:44:59 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: It would still be a surprise if Jennings was unable to play this weekend even though he's been limited this week. Check his status heading into the weekend, but he should still be in starting lineups versus a Washington Redskins defense that has given up 122.5 yards and two touchdowns on the ground per game to running backs.

Giants | Rashad Jennings listed as limited

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 12:05:16 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings appears to have a good chance to play in Week 3, but owners should continue to monitor his status. He probably will receive is usual playing time if he is active for the game and can be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in most leagues.

Giants | Rashad Jennings on track for Week 3

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 13:14:15 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) had a cast on his left thumb Tuesday, Sept. 20, but he said it will be removed before the Week 3 game against the Washington Redskins Sunday, Sept. 25. Jennings is confident he will play Sunday, and he also noted he could play with the cast on, if needed.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings has been a fantasy bust through the first two weeks with 102 yards on 31 carries (3.3 yards per tote) and three receptions for 16 yards. He's failed to find the end zone, too. However, Washington has been gashed for 4.2 yards per rushing attempt through the first two weeks and allowed a league-high five ground scores. Stay tuned for updates, but don't view Jennings as anything more than a middling RB2 with a low fantasy floor.

Giants | Rashad Jennings should play

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 15:58:57 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (hand) should be on the field in some capacity in Week 3, according to ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings' status for Week 3 is vague at this point, so he'll need to be monitored throughout the week. If he is limited at all or can't play then Shane Vereen and Orleans Darkwa would be the primary beneficiaries. Starting Vereen as a flex in such a case wouldn't be out of the question.
