Giants | Rashad Jennings' status uncertain

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 14:06:39 -0800

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings' (ankle) status for Week 16 is uncertain, because the severity of the injury is not known, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. "He did have a reoccurrence of the ankle and was not able to go back in the game," Coughlin said. "Whether or not we are all the way back to Square 1, I don't know yet. I don't have anything on that today yet."

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor his practice participation during the week to see if he has a chance to play in Week 16. Andre Williams likely would receive most of the carries if Jennings is not able to play, but would not be the best option to use on FantasyScore since the St. Louis Rams play well against opposing running backs.

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 10:27:38 -0800

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) is not taking part in practice Wednesday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($6,200) is definitely a risky play at FantasyScore this weekend, because he's not assured of playing just yet.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($5,800) will be limited in Week 11 against the San Francisco 49ers, and he'll share the load with Andre Williams. The matchup isn't great, either, meaning it's probably best to hold off from using Jennings in your FantasyScore lineups this weekend.

Giants | Rashad Jennings could play in Week 10

Thu, 06 Nov 2014 13:29:37 -0800

Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 6, and he could return to play in Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks. "It's getting close," Jennings said. "No setbacks. Felt like myself a little bit. Tomorrow I plan on doing the same thing, and just going from there." Jennings has missed the last three games with a sprained medial collateral ligament in his knee. Head coach Tom Coughlin said Jennings "did pretty well" in practice Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings isn't available at FantasyScore this weekend anyway, so you can forget about him. However, Andre Williams' ($3,800) value would take a significant hit if Jennings returns. It's not the best matchup to take advantage of Williams, though, even if Jennings doesn't return.

Tue, 28 Oct 2014 07:24:43 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) is not ready to go for Week 9, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Jennings said he is not able to make cuts yet and has been limited to linear running.

Fantasy Tip: Andre Williams ($4,100; 8.2% of your cap) will be an option for your flex spot on FantasyScore against the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts' run defense has been solid, and their offense has been clicking. Williams may not be a great start in Week 9.

Giants | Rashad Jennings hopes to return after bye

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 13:16:27 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) has been working out and feels better, and he's hoping he can return after the team's Week 8 bye. "Getting better every day," Jennings said. "Just working out in the gym, getting lost in my music and doing everything I need to do so that when I get back, I'll be back up to speed where I was." He plans to start running this week.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants are using a tandem of Andre Williams and Peyton Hillis in the backfield without Jennings, and the Giants appear to prefer using Hillis in passing situations. That'll limit Williams' value for another week, and the matchup against the Dallas Cowboys doesn't look promising.

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.
