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?
Rashad Jennings listed as Giants starting RB-- Tue Sep 8 10:55 am --
Still a risky Week 1 play versus Cowboys
Paul Schwartz reports on Twitter that Rashad Jennings is listed as the starting running back on the Giants' initial depth chart. Jennings started the first three preseason games as well before rotating series evenly with Andre Williams, who's made strides to improve his play on passing downs.(Twitter)
FF Today's Take:It's still looking an awful lot like running back by committee. Jennings is a risky RB2 play even in a good matchup Week 1 against the Cowboys, and both Williams and Shane Vereen could emerge as viable flex options.
