NFL | Rashad Jennings has talked with multiple teams

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 11:19:41 -0700

Free-agent RB Rashad Jennings (Giants) told Sirius XM NFL Radio almost two weeks ago he's had "simple conversations" with the Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, Baltimore Ravens, Los Angeles Rams and Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Since that time, the Ravens lost Kenneth Dixon to a season-ending knee injury (although they added Bobby Rainey) and the Rams watched Lance Dunbar go down for an indefinite amount of time. While either of those teams could still make a move on Jennings in the near future, it is telling the 32-year-old isn't already in some team's camp. Then again, he didn't show much last season.

NFL | Rashad Jennings expects to sign with club

Mon, 10 Jul 2017 20:59:38 -0700

Free-agent RB Rashad Jennings (Giants) said he expects to sign with a team before the season begins. He mentioned how he's in the best shape of his life and that's what he's "known for across the league."

Fantasy Tip: The 32-year-old tailback posted some pretty disappointing numbers with the Giants last season, en route to losing the starting job, so it's highly unlikely he'll rise to the top of someone else's depth chart. However, it sounds as if Jennings still has something to offer as a veteran backup, but that doesn't mean it'll translate into any usefulness for fantasy purposes.

NFL | Rashad Jennings hoping to find a home

Sun, 09 Jul 2017 17:22:36 -0700

Free-agent RB Rashad Jennings (Giants) said he has maintained a strict workout regimen and is in the best shape of his life, and he is hoping to sign with a team before the start of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings should be able to find a team at some point this season, likely as a veteran backup. It will take a special situation for him to have fantasy relevance.

NFL | Rashad Jennings has chip on shoulder

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 13:50:55 -0800

Free-agent RB Rashad Jennings (Giants) said he has a chip on his shoulder after being released by the New York Giants. Jennings believes he still has a strong work ethic and plenty of gas left in the tank, not to mention that he's healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings is past his prime at 32 years old, but he can still compete. That being said, he will assuredly be part of a committee if/when he is signed by someone. Jennings' value will be minimal barring any injury to a backfield teammate. He shouldn't be looked at as more than a late-round flier.

Giants | Rashad Jennings let go

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 11:11:05 -0800

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings was released Monday, Feb. 13. Jennings would have counted over $3 million against the salary cap. The release will save the Giants $2.5 million.

Fantasy Tip: The Paul Perkins era can now officially commence. He figures to be the primary running back with Shane Vereen maintaining his pass-catching role, although Perkins is a capable receiver, too. Players in Perkins' situation could be over drafted, though, so don't go bananas just because of the released of Jennings.

Giants | Giants to move on from Rashad Jennings?

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 16:40:41 -0800

The New York Giants may be moving on from RB Rashad Jennings, according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Jennings is signed through 2017, this move wouldn't be all that surprising, considering he's on the verge of turning 32 years old and is coming off one of the worst seasons of his career in which he averaged a measly 3.3 yards per carry. Plus, the Giants arguably have their running back of the future in Paul Perkins. Either way, Jennings is trending down in a big way no matter who he plays for.

Giants | Rashad Jennings expects to return

Tue, 31 Jan 2017 06:29:47 -0800

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings said he expects to return to the team in 2017. Jennings has one year left on his deal, and his release would save the club $2.5 million.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings was phased out at times down the stretch with the emergence of Paul Perkins, and the team could bring in more competition for the committee. Jennings, 32 in March, has little upside outside of a backup role on a fantasy team.

Giants | Paul Perkins splits it up

Mon, 12 Dec 2016 06:23:08 -0800

New York Giants RB Paul Perkins and RB Rashad Jennings each rushed 15 times for 45 yards Sunday, Dec. 11, against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: It was the most action Perkins has received in his young career. He needs to be handcuffed to Jennings, or simply acquired, if he's available on waivers.

Giants | Rashad Jennings into the end zone

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 23:00:22 -0800

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings rushed six times for just 19 yards in the Week 13 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He added six catches for 34 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings has been underwhelming this season and remains nothing more than a RB3. If rookie Paul Perkins could catch out of the backfield, he would likely surpass Jennings on the depth chart.

Giants | Rashad Jennings totals 59 yards

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 20:36:48 -0800

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings rushed 15 times for 55 yards in the Week 12 game against the Cleveland Browns. He also added two receptions for four yards on his two targets.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings has yet to run for 100 yards this season, and he is averaging just 3.4 yards per carry while rushing for just two scores. He should be treated as more of a flex fantasy option heading into Week 13.
