Fantasy Tip: The rookie was part of a strong combo that included Odell Beckham (121 yards) and Victor Cruz (70 yards). Because QB Eli Manning has so many options, you may want to hold off to see how much Shepard will be used, but right now he looks like a decent option for either your bench or a lower receiver spot.

Fantasy Tip: The problem with using Vereen on a regular basis is it looks like the Giants may have a RB by committee approach. Orleans Darkwa had a touchdown as well and ran for 53 yards. Stay away for the moment until the Giants sort out who will carry the ball the most.

Fantasy Tip: Manning did complete two-thirds of his passes but obviously the interceptions hurt this week. Manning is still a solid option but beware going in that he will have games like these.

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.

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.

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.

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.

New York Giants OT Bobby Hart is expected to replace OT Marshall Newhouse (calf) as the team's starting right tackle for Week 3's game against the Washington Redskins, although head coach Ben McAdoo said there's a possibility that Hart and William Beatty could rotate at the spot.

New York Giants OT Marshall Newhouse (calf), DT Robert Thomas (illness) and FS Darian Thompson (foot) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and have been ruled out for Week 3. DE Olivier Vernon (wrist) fully participated in practice and is not on the injury report.
