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
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.
Injury David Wilson cleared for "everything"     -- Mon Jul 21 8:57 am --

Giants' RB thinks he's ready for football action
Just got cleared ..... cleared for everything now the story continues. (David Wilson via Twitter)

FF Today's Take: David Wilson (neck) took to Twitter to announce he's been cleared for football activities. It sounds like Wilson will be able to participate in training camp and if all goes well, will be a compliment to Rashad Jennings once the season begins. Wilson is an explosive player and should start creep up ADP rankings as the summer goes on.
David Wilson to undergo neck exam on July 21     -- Thu Jun 26 4:25 pm --

Hoping to get cleared for contact in time for camp
David Wilson is hoping a July 21 exam of his surgically-repaired neck will clear him for contact in time for training camp. Wilson was on the field for OTA and minicamp practices. He took some reps. These were all non-contact practices, but things do happen, and so the team held him out of anything it believed might expose him to any potential contact, just to be safe. As he worked, and watched, Wilson liked what he saw of the new Giants' offense and what it means for him assuming he gets cleared to play in it. (ESPN New York)

FF Today's Take: Wilson may have liked what he saw from the new offense, but his fumble problems and shortcomings as a pass protector make him a poor fit for it. Unless or until those areas get corrected, Rashad Jennings will likely see the bulk of the work in the backfield for the Giants. As a result of his weaknesses and uncertain physical status, he is an end-of-draft option at best.
