Giants | Could use Andre Williams more

Wed, 24 Sep 2014 15:39:22 -0700

The New York Giants could use RB Andre Williams more in Week 4 if the team gets an early lead and has to rely on the running game, according to Dan Graziano of ESPN New York. The team is monitoring RB Rashad Jennings after he carried the ball 34 times in Week 3, and believe he will be at full strength, but with the short week the team could rely on Williams a bit more.

Fantasy Tip: It would make sense for Williams to see more carries in this spot, but it may not be enough to justify using him in FantasyScore this week, especially since there is no doubt Jennings will see the majority of the workload.

Giants | Rashad Jennings should see majority work

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 07:32:55 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is expected to get the bulk of the carries in Week 1, according to Dan Graziano.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings broke off a big scoring run in the opening preseason game and is in line for many weeks of RB2 use. Don't sleep on Andre Williams for the long term, though he's probably just a goal line back to start off the 2014 season.

Giants | Rashad Jennings sharp in preseason opener

Sat, 09 Aug 2014 21:04:56 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings had five carries for 85 yards in the team's preseason opener Saturday, Aug. 9, including a 73-yard touchdown run.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings is going is going to open the year as the team's top back, and he looked the part of a lead back in this one. With David Wilson's neck problem forcing him out of football and Andre Williams likely more of a short-yardage back, Jennings should be considered a mid-level RB2 candidate.

Giants | David Wilson not allowed to return

Mon, 04 Aug 2014 10:02:01 -0700

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) has been shut down by team doctors because of the neck injury he suffered last week, according to a source. It is believed the injury could be career ending.

Fantasy Tip: Rashad Jennings likely will be the team's starting running back with Wilson not being able to compete for the job. Jennings should be considered a low-end No. 2 or No. 3 running back in most leagues. Andre Williams could become more valuable with this news and should be seen as a No. 4 running back.

Giants | David Wilson to go for tests

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 15:27:30 -0700

New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) will undergo tests after suffering a "burner" in practice Tuesday, July 29. The team "will be careful" with Wilson.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants and Tom Coughlin are praying that this burner doesn't equate to a significant setback for Wilson. If it's significant, Wilson's season may be over before it began. Obviously, he's a big risk if you're drafting in the coming days. Rashad Jennings' value will go up even more if Wilson's injury proves costly.

Giants | Andre Williams could be part of rotation to start the year

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 18:46:26 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Williams could unseat RB Peyton Hillis as the power back by the start of the year and become a part of a three-man rotation with RB Rashad Jennings and RB David Wilson, according to Giants.com writers John Schmeelk and Dan Salomone.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings is the favorite to be the featured back, but with Wilson's injury history, there is a chance Williams could carve out a worthwhile role in the offense. He probably isn't worth drafting at this point, but he is worth keeping an eye on to see how his role develops.
