2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
After barely seeing the ball as a rookie in 2009, Jennings carved out a solid role for him in 2010, doubling his touches from 55 to 110 and gaining 459 yards on the ground to go along with 223 receiving yards and scoring four touchdowns. Having shown some big play ability, Jennings was expected to earn an even bigger role in 2011 with Maurice Jones-Drew having knee problems entering the season but a severely sprained knee ended his year in the preseason. Entering 2012, Jennings has a solid grasp on the backup role behind MJD and could establish himself as a decent flex play given the lack of proven talent amongst the teamís skill position players. Did we mention that a MJD holdout is a possibility?

Comment: Jennings has been the beneficiary of MJD's holdout and he's got the talent to be a starter in this league.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Rashad Jennings noncommital about Week 9     -- Mon Oct 20 7:15 pm --

Recovering from MCL sprain
Rashad Jennings sprained the MCL in his left knee two weeks ago. He's eyeing a return when the Giants take the field next on November 3 against the Colts. "As the doctors said, they think I'm right on track to be back here soon and it's going to be a day to day [situation]," Jennings said. Jennings did not commit to anything. Next on the schedule is to hit the field during the bye week and begin running and cutting on the knee. He has not yet done anyone running outside the water. (Newark Star-Ledger)

FF Today's Take: Rookie Andre Williams hasn't exactly made a case for a timeshare, rushing 35 times for 110 yards (3.1 YPC) in the two full games Jennings has missed. This is yet another situation in which owners need to add depth at the position while hoping that he can clear some hurdles during the Giants' bye week.
Injury Coughlin: Andre Williams ready for bigger role     -- Tue Oct 7 10:30 am --

Jennings injury opens door for rookie RB
Giants RB Andre Williams carried the ball 20 times for 65 yards and a score and caught both of his passes despite coming into the league with a reputation as a poor receiver. With running back Rashad Jennings out at least a few weeks with an MCL sprain, Williams will have to take a bulk of the carries and handle a bulk of the blitz pickup duties when Eli Manning drops back to pass. Peyton Hillis is a nice second option, but the Giants sound like a team prepared to ride the hot hand. "I am very confident (in Williams taking a bigger role)," coach Tom Coughlin said Monday. "The other thing that he did that was great was the third-and-7 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." (NFL.com)

FF Today's Take: Williams has been working hard at becoming a complete running back, and with favorable matchups in weeks 6 and 7, he's worth plugging in as an RB2.
Injury Rashad Jennings likely out "a few weeks"     -- Mon Oct 6 6:20 pm --

Sprained MCL
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings won't need surgery to repair his injured left knee, but an MRI on Monday revealed a sprained MCL, and Jennings is expected to miss at least a few weeks with the injury. Rookie Andre Williams will take over in the meantime as the Giants' starting running back, with Peyton Hillis serving as his backup. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: The Giants have a Week 8 bye, so it makes some sense that Jennings will sit out the next three games. Williams isn't much of a receiver out of the backfield, but has more than enough ability as a runner to perform at a high-end RB2/low-end RB1 level while Jennings is out. Peyton Hillis might become a bit of a factor on third down as well.
Coughlin wants Giants offense to move quicker     -- Sat Aug 9 10:30 pm --

Mixed results after two preseason games
It has hardly been a secret at Giants training camp practices that they intend to run a faster offense this season. Ben McAdoo's new West Coast-style offense is supposed to run with speed and rhythm. "I think, quite frankly, [the offense] does need to have rhythm. It does have to have more speed to it," Coughlin said. "But we've got more time to work on that." (NJ.com)

FF Today's Take: Through two preseason games the Giants offense has been at best inconsistent. Eli Manning has yet to throw the ball further than 10 yards. Running back Rashad Jennings didn't scamper 73 yards for a touchdown Saturday night but a better showing next week against the Colts would be a welcome sight. It's very possible the Giants key offensive weapons will struggle early in the season until the new McAdoo offense sinks in.
Giants list Hillis as No.2 running back     -- Tue Aug 5 4:15 pm --

Rookie Andre Williams has more fantasy value
Former "Madden" cover boy Peyton Hillis has moved up to No. 2 on the New York Giants' running back depth chart in the wake of Monday's news that former first-round pick David Wilson's career is over due to neck injuries. Hillis and rookie Andre Williams are the two backs who appear to have the best opportunities to take the snaps that had been slated for Wilson. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Rashad Jennings remains the favorite to lead the team in carries while the veteran Hillis and the rookie Williams strive to carve out their own role in the offense. Williams is the more talented runner and the better long-term fantasy bet. He will easily take over Hillis' No.2 role should he proved to be adequate in pass protection.
Injury David Wilson informed NFL career is over     -- Mon Aug 4 4:50 pm --

Suffered neck burner last week after undergoing 2013 surgery
Informed he can never play football again, David Wilson at the incredibly tender age of 23 offered perspective rare in someone so young. Wilsonís dream of playing in the NFL came to an end after two seasons and only 21 games as the worst-case scenario unfolded around him. He was examined Monday by Dr. Frank Cammisa, the spine specialist who last January performed a cervical fusion on Wilson, an evaluation prompted by the neck burner injury he experienced last Tuesday in practice. Along with Dr. Russell Warren, the Giantsí team physician, Wilson was given the news he braced for but did not want to hear. (New York Post)

FF Today's Take: The Giants and Wilson were both prepared for this news, but it doesn't make it any less disheartening. Wilson will receive his scheduled salary of $997,682 when he is officially placed on IR. As for the Giants, they added Rashad Jennings in free agency to be the lead back in 2014 and drafted Andre Williams, who figures to be the goal-line back and take on more carries as a result of Wilson's departure.
