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 | 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.
