Giants | Andre Williams goes off in win

Sun, 07 Dec 2014 20:27:21 -0800

New York Giants RB Andre Williams rushed for a season-high 131 yards in Week 14 against the Tennessee Titans, including a 50-yard touchdown scamper.

Fantasy Tip: Williams was a great FantasyScore addition with Rashad Jennings banged up and limited due to an ankle injury.

Giants | Rashad Jennings to miss Week 14?

Tue, 02 Dec 2014 16:30:35 -0800

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) is still recovering from an ankle injury he suffered in Week 13. The team signed RB Chris Ogbonnaya Tuesday, Dec. 2, perhaps indicating that Jennings might not be able to go this week.

Fantasy Tip: Andre Williams ($4,500) would get the start if Jennings is unable to play and has a terrific matchup versus the Tennessee Titans, who have given up the most rushing yards to running backs this year.

Giants | Andre Williams to continue to share

Fri, 07 Nov 2014 07:41:38 -0800

New York Giants RB Andre Williams is expected to continue to lose carries to RBs Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox.

Fantasy Tip: Williams ($3,800; 7.6% of your cap) had 12 carries in a lopsided game last week and faces a tough Seattle Seahawks defense in Week 10. Rashad Jennings (knee) is on the mend, so Williams' fantasy light is dimming. Look elsewhere this week on FantasyScore. Hillis and Cox aren't worth the flier.

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 | Andre Williams has favorable spot start

Sat, 11 Oct 2014 12:44:33 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Williams faces a Philadelphia Eagles defense that is allowing just under 104 rushing yards per game. Williams will start in place of Rashad Jennings this week.

Fantasy Tip: Williams is a bargain this week at just $5,200 on FantasyScore.

Giants | Giants confident in Andre Williams

Tue, 07 Oct 2014 09:35:03 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Williams has the confidence of head coach Tom Coughlin and the rest of the coaching staff that he can take on a bigger workload with RB Rashad Jennings (knee) injured. "I am very confident (in Williams taking a bigger role)," Coughlin said. "The other thing that he did that was great was the third-and-seven first-down run. A lot of that was on his own outside the flank of our blockers. He was able to pick up that first down. That was really indicative of people trying to tackle the ball and get the ball out, and he made that play. When you have a young guy, you really get into great, great detail even more about pass protection. He has done a good job when he has been in there. He is going to have to do even better."

Fantasy Tip: Williams ($5,200 at FantasyScore) becomes a nice option in Week 6 against a Philadelphia Eagles defense that has had trouble stopping power rushers this year.

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.

Giants | Andre Williams has 22 touches

Sun, 05 Oct 2014 14:29:58 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Williams carried 20 times for 65 yards and a touchdown in the Week 5 game against the Atlanta Falcons, and he added two receptions for 18 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Williams was getting extra work with Rashad Jennings leaving the game early due to a knee injury. If Williams gets the start in Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles, he will be an intriguing FantasyScore option if his salary remains low.

Giants | Andre Williams solid in blowout

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 21:44:22 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Williams had 15 carries for a team-high 66 yards and a score Thursday, Sept. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Williams saw plenty of action after the Giants turned their Week 4 meeting with the Redskins into a blowout early in the second half. Don't expect Williams to see such a heavy workload most weeks.
