Injury Rashad Jennings ruled out Week 9
Will miss third straight week with knee sprain
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 30, 3:15 pm

New York Giants
The New York Giants hoped starting RB Rashad Jennings would be able to return from his knee injury and play Monday night against the Colts. He will not. Giants HC Tom Coughlin said Thursday that there was no chance Jennings would be able to play Monday, leaving the running game once again in the hands of rookie Andre Williams and fading veteran Peyton Hillis. Jennings will miss his third game in a row since spraining his knee in the Week 5 victory against the Falcons. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Williams will get another start against a Colts' middling defense (versus opposing fantasy running backs) that will be looking to rebound from giving up 51 points to the Steelers last weekend. The rookie contributes next to nothing in the passing game and hasn't been overly impressive as a runner thus far, meaning Indianapolis may be a sneaky defensive play against a Giants' offense without Victor Cruz.


Injury Coughlin: Andre Williams ready for bigger role
Jennings injury opens door for rookie RB
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Oct 7, 10:30 am

New York Giants
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)

FFToday'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"
Sprained MCL
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 6, 6:20 pm

New York Giants
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)

FFToday'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
Rookie Andre Williams has more fantasy value
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Aug 5, 4:15 pm

New York Giants
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)

FFToday'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.
