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.

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.

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.

Giants | Andre Williams has favorable spot start

Sat, 11 Oct 2014 12:44:33 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Williams faces a Philadelphia Eagles defense that is allowing just under 104 rushing yards per game. Williams will start in place of Rashad Jennings this week.

Fantasy Tip: Williams is a bargain this week at just $5,200 on FantasyScore.
