Description: Giants running back Rashad Jennings couldn't get much going in the run game (19 carries for just 52 yards, but was a big part of the passing game.
Insight: Jenning caught eight of 10 targets for 68 yards. We also liked that the team twice gave him the ball at the goal line, but he couldn't punch it in.
 
11/17/2014 3:10:00 PM
Description: Giants running back Rashad Jennings appears to have come out of Sunday's game without any complications to the knee injury that kept him sidelined.

Description: Giants running back Rashad Jennings (knee) is active for Week 11 versus San Francisco.
Insight: If Jennings proves he is healthy and running well, we feel that coach Tom Coughlin will have a tough time taking out a productive tailback for the unproductive Andre Williams. Expect 15-20 carries.

Description: Giants running back Rashad Jennings (knee) could be in line for a 60-40 split with Andre Williams, according to The Newark-Star Ledger.
Insight: Yesterday we reported that Jennings would see the majority of the reps, and while it looks like he still will, he may not see the 75 percent of snaps from before his injury. However, if Jennings proves he is healthy and running well, we feel that coach Tom Coughlin will have a tough time taking out a productive tailback. Consider him a borderline RB2, with potential for Week 11.

Description: Giants running back Rashad Jennings is expected to start and receive a majority of the carries according to The Star-Ledger.
Insight: The Giants saw Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox go down with injuries in Week 10, yet the team did not add a running back to the roster. That likely indicates the Giants don't need one because Jennings will start and get a lot of work. Andre Williams will be the short-yardage back. Jennings is a solid RB2 for Week 11.

Insight: The 34 carries is exactly the same number Jennings had in the first two games combined. Fantasy owners loved the production and amount of carries, but his continued success greatly depends on Eli Manning's continued development in the west coast offense.

7/31/2014 9:48:00 PM
Description: According to nj.com, Giants coach Tom Coughlin said he'll use a running back by committee this season, even with David Wilson out.
Insight: The Giants signed Rashad Jennings, re-signed Peyton Hillis, drafted Andre Williams and brought back second-year back Michael Cox. However, we tend to think the talk of a committee is training camp coach-speak. Jennings has the power to run between the tackles and the hands and pass-protection skills to play on third downs, so he should get the majority of the work. The one thing to be concerned about is Williams vulturing touchdowns, as the rookie has been getting first-team reps on the goal line.
 
7/22/2014 8:26:00 PM
Description: According to Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News, rookie Andre Williams worked as the first-team goal-line rusher on the first day of training camp Tuesday. He also handled goal-line duties this spring.
Insight: This could spell doom for the fantasy value of Rashad Jennings because he's already going to be losing some carries to David Wilson on early downs. Jennings' ADP is 44.3 in fantasyfootballcalculator.com mock drafts, 21st among running backs.
