2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
A injury prone veteran running back who managed to play only 11 games in his first season as the starter for the Giants, Jennings posted his second lowest yard per carry average (3.8) while scoring a mere four touchdowns. Not exactly the type of production owners expected when he was drafted in the fourth round of most fantasy drafts in 2014.To make matters worse for Jennings, the Giants added pass-catching specialist Shane Vereen via free agency this offseason, likely reducing the number of receptions Jennings will see out of the backfield. Add second-year back Andre Williams in the mix, despite his limitations as a pass catcher, and Jennings is not an overly attractive fantasy option this season. Despite all of these negatives against Jennings, he is the starting back entering the season on an offense that produced the fourth-most plays in 2014. If you can get him late, Jennings is worthy of a pick as a very low-end RB2 or flex option.

Andre Williams could be atop depth chart
Second-year Giants RB making moves to supplant Rashad Jennings
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 25, 10:55 am

New York Giants
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)

FFToday'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.


Rashad Jennings sharp in practice
Giants RB reportedly looking "big, strong, fast and quick"

New York Giants
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)

FFToday'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
Former Patriot seen as strong in pass pro as well as a receiver
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jul 20, 4:35 pm

New York Giants
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)

FFToday'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.
