Wed, 19 Nov 2014 07:44:48 -0800

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.

Wed, 05 Nov 2014 09:30:19 -0800

Fantasy Tip: This is not a good sign for Jennings' status for Week 10, but he still has a few days to return to the practice field. It appears Andre Williams will receive another start, and owners could consider using Williams as a flex option on FantasyScore since he costs $3,800.

Giants | Rashad Jennings not ready

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.

Mon, 27 Oct 2014 14:38:44 -0700

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Jennings likely will miss another game but still has a few days to improve. Andre Williams would start again if Jennings misses the game and would be a No. 2 running back or flex option this week.

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.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 10, and has been ruled out of the team's Week 6 game.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings is not expected to play in the team's Week 6 game. Andre Williams will likely get the bulk of the work while Jennings is out, and with a FantasyScore price of $5,200 (10.40% of cap), he could be a very nice play.

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.

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 11:43:13 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) said his sprained left knee feels alright. Jennings left yesterday's game against the Atlanta Falcons in the third quarter.

Fantasy Tip: Whether the New York coaches and trainers agree that Jennings is alright is another story. He might get a week of rest and pave the way for Andre Williams to start Week 6.

Giants | Rashad Jennings wearing brace

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 11:38:10 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) was seen with a limp and wearing a brace on his left knee.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings could very well miss this weekend's game and maybe longer. Andre Williams would be the lead back if Jennings is unable to go and is definitely worth a pickup if available.

Giants | Rashad Jennings has favorable matchup

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 16:20:37 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings faces an Atlanta Falcons defense in Week 5 that has allowed eight rushing touchdowns to running backs through four games.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings is more than worth his price of $6,600 on FantasyScore this week, even if Andre Williams does take away a few carries.

Giants | Could use Andre Williams more

Wed, 24 Sep 2014 15:39:22 -0700

The New York Giants could use RB Andre Williams more in Week 4 if the team gets an early lead and has to rely on the running game, according to Dan Graziano of ESPN New York. The team is monitoring RB Rashad Jennings after he carried the ball 34 times in Week 3, and believe he will be at full strength, but with the short week the team could rely on Williams a bit more.

Fantasy Tip: It would make sense for Williams to see more carries in this spot, but it may not be enough to justify using him in FantasyScore this week, especially since there is no doubt Jennings will see the majority of the workload.

Giants | Rashad Jennings should see majority work

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 07:32:55 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is expected to get the bulk of the carries in Week 1, according to Dan Graziano.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings broke off a big scoring run in the opening preseason game and is in line for many weeks of RB2 use. Don't sleep on Andre Williams for the long term, though he's probably just a goal line back to start off the 2014 season.

Giants | Rashad Jennings sharp in preseason opener

Sat, 09 Aug 2014 21:04:56 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings had five carries for 85 yards in the team's preseason opener Saturday, Aug. 9, including a 73-yard touchdown run.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings is going is going to open the year as the team's top back, and he looked the part of a lead back in this one. With David Wilson's neck problem forcing him out of football and Andre Williams likely more of a short-yardage back, Jennings should be considered a mid-level RB2 candidate.

Giants | David Wilson not allowed to return

Mon, 04 Aug 2014 10:02:01 -0700

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) has been shut down by team doctors because of the neck injury he suffered last week, according to a source. It is believed the injury could be career ending.

Fantasy Tip: Rashad Jennings likely will be the team's starting running back with Wilson not being able to compete for the job. Jennings should be considered a low-end No. 2 or No. 3 running back in most leagues. Andre Williams could become more valuable with this news and should be seen as a No. 4 running back.

Giants | David Wilson to go for tests

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 15:27:30 -0700

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) will undergo tests after suffering a "burner" in practice Tuesday, July 29. The team "will be careful" with Wilson.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants and Tom Coughlin are praying that this burner doesn't equate to a significant setback for Wilson. If it's significant, Wilson's season may be over before it began. Obviously, he's a big risk if you're drafting in the coming days. Rashad Jennings' value will go up even more if Wilson's injury proves costly.

Giants | Could use three-man rotation at RB

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 05:18:00 -0700

New York Giants RBs Rashad Jennings, David Wilson and Andre Williams could be used in a three-man rotation this season to keep Jennings fresh.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings will be the lead back with Wilson in to change the pace. Williams could be the goal line back. Jennings is a decent RB3 with Wilson an RB4. Williams could be a decent flier as an RB5 with upside in TD-only leagues.

Mon, 21 Jul 2014 08:00:40 -0700

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.
