2016 Outlook
Veteran Rashad Jennings is expected to once again be the team’s lead back this season. That may not mean as much as it would for other fantasy running backs, as injuries and the staff’s committee approach at the position have led to only 362 carries during his two seasons with the team. Jennings did manage to play in all 16 games last season and finished with 863 rushing yards and caught 29 balls for another 296 yards with 4 total touchdowns. While his dynamic play-making skills are limited, he was generally efficient and is still the best running back on the roster. At 31 years of age it’s hard to imagine much improvement over last season, leaving the door open for Shane Vereen or more likely rookie Paul Perkins to step into the lead back role. While Jennings’ versatility and experience in the system makes him the odds on favorite for lead back duties, it should be noted that Jennings had never handled more than 163 carries in a season before coming to the Giants and topped out at 195 last year. He is an attractive depth option in PPR leagues at late-round ADP, but relying on him as a weekly starter is not advisable.


News From The Past 90 Days
Rashad Jennings, Victor Cruz cut by Giants
Giants clearing cap space
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Feb 13, 2:00 pm

New York Giants
The team released popular wide receiver Victor Cruz, the team announced Tuesday, marking the end of one of the more entertaining and improbable careers in Giants history. The team also released running back Rashad Jennings. Cruz was due to earn $6.4 million in base salary in 2017 and $7.4 million in 2018 on his contract with the Giants. (Newsday)

FFToday's Take: Cruz had a limited role in the Giants offense last season (30 rec, 586 yds, 1 TD)... his first season since tearing his patellar tendon in 2014. He'll hit the free agent market looking for a No.2 role but will likely have to settle for something less. Jennings saw his snaps decline to rookie Paul Perkins towards the end of 2016. Perkins as the inside track on lead RB duties for the Giants next season.


Giants to stick with RBBC
Paul Perkins, Rashad Jennings expected to split carries

Giants OC Mike Sullivan says Paul Perkins and Rashad Jennings complement each other well. Expect the Giants to use both a good amount. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This makes perfect sense, as Jennings has 198 yards rushing on 66 carries since the start of December, while Perkins has 309 yards on 69 attempts over the same five-game stretch. A recent re-commitment to the running game has allowed the Giants to move up to 29th in the league in rushing, so it is fair to say owners should be shying away from this duo in playoff leagues anyway. This news just makes starting either one less attractive than it already was.


Giants not resting anyone in Week 17?
Rashad Jennings: 'Everyone is going to play Sunday'
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Dec 28, 11:00 am

New York Giants
Locked into the No. 5 seed in the NFC, the New York Giants have little but rivalry and pride to play for Sunday against the Washington Redskins. In those situations, many teams rest key starters. It doesn't sound like that's going to be Ben McAdoo's approach in his first season as coach. To ensure his team is "ascending" into the playoffs, the Giants practiced as normal on Tuesday, and there was no talk of resting players. "Yes. Everyone is going to play Sunday," running back Rashad Jennings said, via ESPN.com. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: Despite Rashad Jennings' assurances, fantasy owners need to keep things in perspective. HC Ben McAdoo appears to be keeping his players on a normal schedule but that doesn't mean he will be playing his starters into the second half and risking injury prior to the post season. This type of guessing game makes it very tough to trust any of Big Blue's main cogs this week
