2015 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?

Andre Williams could be atop depth chart     -- Tue Aug 25 10:55 am --

Second-year Giants RB making moves to supplant Rashad Jennings
Dan Graziano reports that "it's not out of the question that Andre Williams overtakes Rashad Jennings for the Giants' starting running back job at some point this season, possibly even at the start." "I'm just really working on staying patient this year," Williams said. "Not just 'go-go-go' as soon as you see the first hole, but remembering what's supposed to happen and waiting to make sure it's time to go. That's not an easy thing when you're working at game speed, but it's important." (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Williams has been watching tape of Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell, who established himself last year as one of the most patient runners in the league. Jennings said several times last year that the biggest thing Williams had to learn was to slow down and be patient, trust his blockers and the play. Williams is looking more and more like a late-round steal and could supplant Jennings before Week 1.

Giants RB reportedly looking "big, strong, fast and quick"
NJ.com reporter Jordan Raanan said running back Rashad Jennings had a "real nice start" to training camp and looks "big, strong, fast and quick." Raanan reported that Jennings made middle linebacker Jon Beason look foolish in a 1-on-1 pass-catching drill, although he did have the ball get popped free by linebacker J.T. Thomas later in the drill. (NJ.com)

FF Today's Take: Jennings is a versatile back who can serve as a workhorse and can do everything the Giants needs him for between the 20s and in the red zone. Unfortunately, he's got a lot of competition for carries, including Shane Vereen, big back Andre Williams, second-year Tulane product Orleans Darkwa and change-of-pace/kick returner Akeem Hunt. Still, he's being undervalued in most drafts and could be a Top 15 RB in the current offense.
Giants like Vereen as complete passing-down back     -- Mon Jul 20 4:35 pm --

Former Patriot seen as strong in pass pro as well as a receiver
The Giants like Shane Vereen as a pass protection running back, which mean they believe he can help their passing game in a variety of ways. Rashad Jennings still seems likely to get the bulk of the first-down and second-down work, with Andre Williams working in some and possibly helping out at the goal line. But Vereen wasn't just a pass-catching back in spring practices, and they don't seem worried about handing the ball off to him. If they're really struggling with their tackle situation and their pass protection in general, Vereen could end up seeing the field more than some might have anticipated. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: The Giants' tackle situation - with raw first-round LT Ereck Flowers replacing the injured Will Beatty and turnstile RT Marshall Newhouse filling the role Flowers was supposed to occupy - is among the worst in the league. Vereen should be plenty involved and should be targeted as a high-upside RB4 this season that could end up being a weekly flex play in PPR leagues if he can stay healthy.
