Giants | RB roles TBD for Giants

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 15:26:10 -0700

New York Giants RBs Rashad Jennings, Shane Vereen and Andre Williams will use training camp to determine their roles in the offense, according to running backs coach Craig Johnson. "I think that as we get closer to games and time for the opener, we will find out more role defining roles for them," Johnson said. "Right now, I try to put them in every situation so I can see what they can do. I try not to say, for instance, 'Shane is only going to run the ball.' I want to see if Shane can catch the ball. I know he can, but I want to see if he can under pressure situations and vice versa. I do that for all of our guys because that way you can kind of find out what they all can do."

Fantasy Tip: Jennings likely will receive most of the carries this season and may have the most fantasy value among the running backs. Vereen probably will be more valuable in point-per-reception leagues because of his ability to catch the ball. All three running backs should be selected in drafts this season since they will all receive playing time.

Giants | Andre Williams struggled to gain yards

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 14:48:19 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Williams gained two or fewer yards in over half of his rushing attempts last season and 23.6% of his carries went for zero yards or negative yards, according to Pro Football Focus. Williams did average 3.1 yards per carry after he was contacted behind the line of scrimmage, which was fourth best in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Williams' role will be determined during training camp, but he will likely be used when Rashad Jennings needs a break and possibly in short-yardage situations. Williams could be a handcuff to Jennings in fantasy leagues this season since he likely would replace Jennings if he was injured.

Giants | Andre Williams likely to see larger role

Sat, 07 Feb 2015 16:24:17 -0800

New York Giants RB Andre Williams will likely see a larger role in the offense in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: It was reported last month that the team was seeking a veteran, change-of-pace back for Rashad Jennings. That would have slotted Williams back a bit, but this report bodes well for his prospects. He'll be a decent RB4 in traditional drafts.

Giants | Andre Williams expected to play

Sat, 27 Dec 2014 09:21:41 -0800

New York Giants RB Andre Williams (shoulder) is expected to play in Week 17 even though he is listed as questionable.

Fantasy Tip: Williams likely will lose some carries since Rashad Jennings is back but will still receive some carries. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options than Williams this week.

New York Giants RB Andre Williams rushed for a season-high 131 yards in Week 14 against the Tennessee Titans, including a 50-yard touchdown scamper.

Fantasy Tip: Williams was a great FantasyScore addition with Rashad Jennings banged up and limited due to an ankle injury.

Giants | Rashad Jennings to miss Week 14?

Tue, 02 Dec 2014 16:30:35 -0800

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) is still recovering from an ankle injury he suffered in Week 13. The team signed RB Chris Ogbonnaya Tuesday, Dec. 2, perhaps indicating that Jennings might not be able to go this week.

Fantasy Tip: Andre Williams ($4,500) would get the start if Jennings is unable to play and has a terrific matchup versus the Tennessee Titans, who have given up the most rushing yards to running backs this year.

Giants | Andre Williams to continue to share

Fri, 07 Nov 2014 07:41:38 -0800

New York Giants RB Andre Williams is expected to continue to lose carries to RBs Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox.

Fantasy Tip: Williams ($3,800; 7.6% of your cap) had 12 carries in a lopsided game last week and faces a tough Seattle Seahawks defense in Week 10. Rashad Jennings (knee) is on the mend, so Williams' fantasy light is dimming. Look elsewhere this week on FantasyScore. Hillis and Cox aren't worth the flier.

Giants | Peyton Hillis favored on passing downs

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 11:18:03 -0700

New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis played 31 snaps in the team's Week 6 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles because the coaching staff doesn't yet trust RB Andre Williams on passing downs. Williams and Hillis are expected to share the workload in the backfield without RB Rashad Jennings (knee) again in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Hillis should see a healthy amount of snaps again this weekend, especially if the Giants fall behind again and are forced to air it out. He's intriguing and probably worth a flier because of his cheap FantasyScore price of $3,200 (6.4% of cap), but Dallas' recently stout run defense will make him a risk.
