2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
After a disastrous 2011 season in Cleveland, Hillis was signed by Kansas City in the offseason to provide insurance in the event Jamaal Charles is slow from ACL recovery. Hillis brings plenty of baggage with him, having sulked his way through most of 2011 in a contract dispute and having seen a huge drop in his production due to injuries and ineffectiveness. There are two questions to ask yourself when assessing his fantasy value for the upcoming season: One, is he the player we saw last season or the one who put together a monstrous 2010 campaign with 1,177 rushing yards, 477 receiving yards and a combined 13 touchdowns? Second, how are the Chiefs going to use him? Having signed a one-year deal, Hillis figures to be plenty motivated and at 26 years of age, he has plenty of gas in the tank so another solid performance seems likely. However, Charles was one of the most dynamic running backs in the league prior to his injury so Hillis is likely to serve as a change of pace and short yardage back. Helping matters somewhat is that offensive coordinator Brian Daboll is familiar with him from their time together in Cleveland. Consider Hillis an upper tier RB4 likely to see more work early in the season than later on.

News From The Past 90 Days
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.
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.
