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.

Giants | Rashad Jennings taking over NYG backfield

Mon, 21 Nov 2016 09:29:02 -0800

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings played 47-of-67 snaps in a Week 11 victory over the Chicago Bears, while Paul Perkins saw 20 snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings turned his strong fourth-quarter effort in Week 10 into a bit of a workhorse role this week, and he rewarded fantasy owners with 21 carries for 85 yards and a touchdown as well as five receptions for 44 more yards. Life won't always be this good for his owners going forward as he is more of a middling flex, but he will definitely be in the high-upside RB2 discussion against the Cleveland Browns in Week 12.

Giants | Rashad Jennings totals 109 yards

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 21:38:48 -0800

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings rushed 15 times for 87 yards in the Week 10 game against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, Nov. 14. He also added three catches for 22 yards on six targets.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings posted season highs in rushing yardage and total yards from scrimmage. Still, he has just one touchdown through six games and is more of a flex fantasy play in deeper leagues at this point.

Giants | Rashad Jennings stuck in neutral

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 17:22:20 -0800

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings ran 11 times for 26 yards in the Week 9 game against the Philadelphia Eagles, and he added three receptions for 13 yards on his three targets.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings split carries and touches right down the middle with rookie Paul Perkins, who had 11 carries and three catches for a total of 47 yards. Neither separated their self from the other, so you can expect another split into Week 10. That's maddening for fantasy owners.

Giants | Rashad Jennings finds end zone

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 09:57:20 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings rushed for 25 yards and one touchdown on 13 carries against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 7. He also caught two passes for 24 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings continues to be the starting running back for the Giants but has rushed for 27 yards or less in each of his last three games. He will continue to have a role in the offense moving forward and can be a flex option in most leagues.

Giants | Rashad Jennings not on injury report

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 16:14:50 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 21, and is not on the injury report for Week 7. The Giants did not practice Friday, so this is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings was involved in the running and passing game last week but posted only 35 total yards. He likely will see a similar workload in Week 7 and could be a flex options in some leagues.

Giants | Rashad Jennings likely to play

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 07:16:02 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was listed as probable for Week 7 by the team Friday, Oct. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings is averaging 2.9 yards per carry and has just seven catches for 36 yards. He's an underwhelming flex option against the Los Angeles Rams.

Giants | Rashad Jennings fully participates

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 13:21:39 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) put in a full practice Thursday, Oct. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings has been a disappointment even when he's been healthy this year, but he should still be the Giants' primary running back in Week 7. The Los Angeles Rams have been mediocre against the run in 2016, but Jennings isn't more than a low-end RB2 or flex for this week.

Giants | Rashad Jennings practices in full

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 12:35:49 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings was not much of a factor in his first game back from his injury but should receive more touches in Week 7. He can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option this week even though he will be facing a solid Los Angeles Rams defense.

Giants | Rashad Jennings does little in return

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 16:06:57 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was active in Week 6 game against the Baltimore Ravens, but he managed just nine rushes for 15 yards. He also had four receptions for 20 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings might have been dealing with a little bit of rust, but the Giants have struggled to run the ball for most of the season anyway. He'll look to get it going against the Rams in London in Week 7, but for now he isn't worth using in most fantasy leagues until he gets untracked.

Giants | Rashad Jennings will be on the field

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 09:17:30 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) is officially active for the team's Week 6 game.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings probably will receive most of the carries during the game, but it is not known if his thumb will affect his play. He could be considered a flex option in some fantasy leagues but could be benched if owners have better options.

Giants | Rashad Jennings intends to play Week 6

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 12:21:52 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) is listed as questionable for Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens but told reporters Thursday, Oct. 13, that "we're rocking this week" after missing the last three games.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings' return will make Orleans Darkwa drop-worthy in most leagues, but the former is at best a low-upside flex this week against the Ravens' stout run defense. For the most part, the Giants' offense in general has been awful for much of the past three weeks, so look elsewhere for higher-upside options until New York shows some signs of life.

Giants | Rashad Jennings listed as questionable

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 11:48:56 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) is being listed as questionable for the team's Week 6 game Sunday, Oct. 16, against the Baltimore Ravens. He was able to get in a limited practice for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Although he's considered questionable to suit up, it's looking more likely than not that the former Jacksonville Jaguar will be able to play in Sunday's contest. Going up against a strong run defense, however, owners might want to use some caution over Jennings, since he may be playing at less than 100 percent. His return would also make it hard to start the likes of Orleans Darkwa and Bobby Rainey.

Giants | Limited participation for Rashad Jennings

Thu, 13 Oct 2016 12:43:11 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings appears to be on track to play in Week 6, but his role in that game is uncertain at this point. He could be considered a flex option if he is active for the game, but owners could also keep him on the bench if they have better options.

Giants | Rashad Jennings expects to play

Thu, 13 Oct 2016 11:19:54 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) said he expects to play against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings would play for the first time in several weeks if he is active for the team's Week 6 game. He has rushed for 102 yards in two games and probably will receive a majority of the carries when he returns. Jennings can be considered a flex option in most leagues.

Giants | Rashad Jennings limited again

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 12:05:00 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings has missed the last several games even though he has been able to do some things during practice, so owners need to check on his status later in the week. Jennings should be the starting running back when he returns to the lineup and could be a No. 2 running back in some leagues.

Giants | Rashad Jennings unlikely to play

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 07:20:05 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) is not expected to play in Week 5's game against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings had been listed as questionable on the injury report and was a limited participant in practice throughout the week. RB Orleans Darkwa is expected to serve as the starter and warrants consideration as a flex option in deeper leagues, while RB Bobby Rainey could be useful in PPR formats.

Giants | Rashad Jennings limited on Friday

Fri, 07 Oct 2016 13:12:49 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited again at practice Friday, Oct. 7.

Fantasy Tip: After being limited in practice all week, Jennings' status appears to be very much up in the air again. If he sits out, it'll be hard to lean on New York's running back situation, which figures to feature the likes of Orleans Darkwa, Bobby Rainey and Paul Perkins.

Giants | Rashad Jennings limited again

Thu, 06 Oct 2016 13:10:50 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings' status may be iffy leading up to kickoff, so his status will really need to be monitored this weekend. If he can't suit up again then Orleans Darkwa would start again, with Bobby Rainey in the pass-catching role. Rainey is a PPR sleeper, but the Green Bay Packers have been stingy against the run this season. Darkwa is a deep flex play at best.

Wed, 05 Oct 2016 14:45:35 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings was not able to play in the last game because of the injury, but it appears he may be able to play in Week 5. He likely would be limited if he is active for the game but could still be a No. 2 running back in leagues.

Giants | Rashad Jennings to sit out MNF

Mon, 03 Oct 2016 09:13:24 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) has been ruled out Week 4 versus the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: As expected. Orleans Darkwa and Bobby Rainey are expected to replace the aging veteran, with the former expected to serve as the lead back in a difficult matchup. Outside of owners trying to replace Jennings or in a bit of a bind at the running back position, it is hard to justify starting either Darkwa or Rainey this week.

Giants | Rashad Jennings could have small role

Sat, 01 Oct 2016 22:02:44 -0700

Updating previous reports, New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) could be active Monday, Oct. 3, against the Minnesota Vikings but is unlikely to play a significant role, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan. Jennings is limited in both blocking and catching passes due to his injury.

Fantasy Tip: With six of the seven inactive slots already accounted for, the Giants may activate Jennings rather than having a third QB (Josh Johnson) up and keep Jennings in reserve for emergency duty only behind Orleans Darkwa and Bobby Rainey. There's no way Jennings should be in your active lineup this week so find alternatives.

Giants | Rashad Jennings questionable

Sat, 01 Oct 2016 12:09:50 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited during practice Saturday, Oct. 1, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings may be a game-time decision for the game but will be a risky option for owners since he will be playing on Monday Night Football. Owners probably should look for other options to use in their lineups this week.

Giants | Rashad Jennings limited again

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 13:37:53 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings in not expected to play in Week 4, but owners should continue to monitor the situation. He would be a risky option if he plays and could be kept on the bench since he probably would be limited. Orleans Darkwa and Bobby Rainey would share work if Jennings is ruled out. Darkwa likely would receive most of the carries and could be flex option in some leagues.

Giants | Limited practice for Rashad Jennings

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 14:04:07 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

Fantasy Tip: The indication is that Jennings is more doubtful than questionable for Week 4, so it may be mainly Orleans Darkwa and Bobby Rainey in New York's backfield this week. Unfortunately, they're up against one of the toughest run defenses in the league in the Minnesota Vikings, who haven't yet given up a rushing touchdown to running backs. It's best to keep Darkwa and Rainey out of starting lineups.

Giants | Rashad Jennings likely to sit

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 06:07:23 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) is likely to miss the Week 4 game Monday, Oct. 3, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: Orleans Darkwa and Bobby Rainey figure to split the load against a tough Minnesota Vikings defense. Darkwa rushed 10 times for 53 yards and a score last week. Rainey only had a 24-yard reception and should see time in the passing downs. Neither are a strong play because of the matchup, but Darkwa has the edge as a flex play.

Giants | Rashad Jennings could be back Week 4

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 11:32:53 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb), who missed Week 3 with a sprained thumb, could be ready to return against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 4, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: Given the Giants are less than 24 hours out from declaring their starting running back out, this optimism may be more a product of their urgency than any real progress after the team lost Shane Vereen for the season on Monday. Orleans Darkwa and Bobby Rainey figure to share touches should Jennings not be able to go, but neither player can be considered more than a desperation flex play against a very good defense.

Giants | Rashad Jennings expected back in Week 4

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 17:36:15 -0700

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.

Giants | Rashad Jennings ruled out

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 09:28:51 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 3 game.

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.

Giants | Rashad Jennings unlikely to play

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 06:14:09 -0700

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.

Giants | Rashad Jennings likely to play Week 3

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 09:18:02 -0700

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.

Giants | Rashad Jennings listed as questionable

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 12:36:52 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) is being listed as questionable for the team's Week 3 game Sunday, September 26, against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: After an encouraging performance in the season opener at Dallas, Jennings disappointed owners everywhere with a flat outing at home against the New Orleans Saints. It looks like he'll be entering the next contest a little hobbled -- if he plays, that is -- which could prevent him from providing RB2 numbers.

Giants | Rashad Jennings limited

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 13:44:59 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: It would still be a surprise if Jennings was unable to play this weekend even though he's been limited this week. Check his status heading into the weekend, but he should still be in starting lineups versus a Washington Redskins defense that has given up 122.5 yards and two touchdowns on the ground per game to running backs.

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 12:05:16 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings appears to have a good chance to play in Week 3, but owners should continue to monitor his status. He probably will receive is usual playing time if he is active for the game and can be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in most leagues.

Giants | Rashad Jennings on track for Week 3

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 13:14:15 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) had a cast on his left thumb Tuesday, Sept. 20, but he said it will be removed before the Week 3 game against the Washington Redskins Sunday, Sept. 25. Jennings is confident he will play Sunday, and he also noted he could play with the cast on, if needed.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings has been a fantasy bust through the first two weeks with 102 yards on 31 carries (3.3 yards per tote) and three receptions for 16 yards. He's failed to find the end zone, too. However, Washington has been gashed for 4.2 yards per rushing attempt through the first two weeks and allowed a league-high five ground scores. Stay tuned for updates, but don't view Jennings as anything more than a middling RB2 with a low fantasy floor.

Giants | Rashad Jennings should play

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 15:58:57 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (hand) should be on the field in some capacity in Week 3, according to ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings' status for Week 3 is vague at this point, so he'll need to be monitored throughout the week. If he is limited at all or can't play then Shane Vereen and Orleans Darkwa would be the primary beneficiaries. Starting Vereen as a flex in such a case wouldn't be out of the question.

Giants | Rashad Jennings nursing left hand injury

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 09:21:50 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (hand) left the locker room with his left wrist and thumb "heavily wrapped" following a Week 2 win over the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: It explains why Shane Vereen (14 carries, three catches) saw so much work in a game in which the Giants never trailed. Jennings has been underwhelming to say the least considering he has had two plus-matchups thus far, delivering 102 scoreless yards on 31 carries. If he is limited or forced to miss Week 3 versus the Washington Redskins, Orleans Darkwa and Paul Perkins would likely form a committee with Vereen, with all three backs likely being no better than flex options.

Giants | Rashad Jennings the lead back

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 11:22:37 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is the No. 1 running back this year, according to running backs coach Craig Johnson. Johnson dispelled any notion that the Giants would implement a four-running back committee again this season.

Fantasy Tip: There wasn't really any question that Jennings would be the primary ball carrier if he was healthy. Shane Vereen should assume the third-down role, but Paul Perkins could steal some touches away, too, not to mention Andre Williams. Still Jennings will see his fair share of opportunities and should be viewed as an RB3.

Giants | Rashad Jennings says he's entering prime

Wed, 13 Jul 2016 08:25:19 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings said at 31 he thinks he's just now entering his prime.

"There's a difference between being an NFL player and being a pro," Jennings said. "Being an NFL player is a guy that comes into the league, has some talent, plays a little bit. But a pro really understands how to take care of his body, how to play the X's and O's, play the game before it happens. I've just been allowing my maturity to catch up with my age at the same time. I'm excited. As I get into my latter years, I'm getting into my prime."

Fantasy Tip: Jennings has never had 200 carries, and he entered the league later than average backs at 24. He's coming off a solid season where he averaged 4.4 yards per carry and had a 195-863-3 line rushing and a 29-296-1 line receiving. He'll be a high-end RB3 whose age could undervalue him in drafts.

Giants | Solid workload for Rashad Jennings?

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 12:31:09 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings could see around 15 to 18 carries per game in 2016, according to John Schmeelk of giants.com. Jennings will still be the Giants' primary running back, with RB Shane Vereen serving as the third-down back.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings has been underrated so far this year for a starting running back. He did leave something to be desired, but Jennings still deserves RB3 consideration after amassing nearly 1,200 total yards and four total touchdowns.

Giants | Rashad Jennings should remain lead back

Thu, 12 May 2016 13:55:08 -0700

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is expected to be the workhorse running back and receive the majority of carries in 2016, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. Jennings saw 48.3% of the Giants' carries last season, but Vacchiano expects that to increase this season.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings actually ran for a career-high 863 yards on a career-high 195 carries last season, although the four total touchdowns left something to be desired. He even notched a career-high 296 receiving yards. If he remains healthy and maintains his status as New York's lead running back, he's worth drafting as a high-end RB3.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings had 27 carries for 170 yards and a touchdown in a 35-30 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: After disappointing most of the year, Jennings topped 70 yards in each of the final four games, averaging 108 yards per game during the stretch. If he opens next year in a similar role, he could be a borderline RB2.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings rushed 14 times for 74 yards in the Week 16 game against the Minnesota Vikings, and he added two catches for 62 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings might have been held out of the end zone, but he piled up an impressive yardage total and he has emerged as a decent RB2 or flex play down the stretch.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings topped 100 yards rushing for the first time this season, finishing with 107 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries in a 38-35 loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: His best performance of the year came against one of the stingiest defenses in the NFL, and Jennings has topped 80 yards rushing in back-to-back games. Despite the recent success, it is hard to trust him at FantasyScore given his lackluster overall numbers.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings carried 22 times for 81 yards in the Week 14 game against the Miami Dolphins Monday, Dec. 14. He also had two grabs for 21 yards.

Fantasy Tip: The 102 total yards from scrimmage likely helped plenty of fantasy owners in standard formats to bonus points, but it would have been nice if he could find the end zone. Still, his rushing yardage was a season high, as were his total yards from scrimmage. Things will be much more difficult in Week 15 against the unbeaten Carolina Panthers.

Giants | NYG struggle to run the ball

Sun, 06 Dec 2015 19:50:58 -0800

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa ran eight times for a team-high 23 yards in the Week 13 game against the New York Jets, and he had a 10-yard catch. RB Andre Williams rushed six times for 22 yards, while RB Rashad Jennings had five totes for 14 yards and a 19-yard catch. RB Shane Vereen also had four runs for 13 yards and two grabs for seven yards.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants wanted to run the ball more effectively in Week 13, but not one piece of the four-player monster really seemed to be able to build any momentum. The Giants backfield is a fantasy nightmare, so stay away.

Giants | Rashad Jennings not posting big stats

Sat, 05 Dec 2015 07:24:14 -0800

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings has not rushed for more than 63 yards in any game this season.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has seen limited touches lately and is part of a committee at the position. Jennings has seen some work in the passing game as well but should not be a fantasy option against the New York Jets this week.
