'Pretty slim' chance Giants RB Rashad Jennings plays Sunday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) Giants running back Rashad Jennings (ankle) expects to sit out practice Thursday for the second straight day, and his chances of playing Sunday at St. Louis are "pretty slim," reports ESPN.com. Rookie Andre Williams would start in Jennings' place. He's carried 42 times for 175 yards and a touchdown the past two weeks.

The website expects Orleans Darkwa to back up Williams and possibly play on passing downs.

Jennings reinjured his sprained right ankle on the first play from scrimmage Week 15. He's been a non-factor since the Nov. 30 loss at Jacksonville.

The Giants are 5-point underdogs at most Vegas sportsbooks.


Giants RB Rashad Jennings not practicing Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) Giants running back Rashad Jennings will not practice Wednesday after aggravating his ankle injury Week 15, coach Tom Coughlin told reporters. Jennings left in the first quarter against the Redskins and did not return.

His status for Sunday's game at the Rams is uncertain. If Jennings can't play, rookie Andre Williams would get the start. He carried 18 times for 44 yards against Washington after ripping the Titans for 131 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries.

St. Louis ranks 12th against the run, giving up 107.5 yards per game.


Giants provide no update on Rashad Jennings' ankle injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Giants coach Tom Coughlin provided no update on the condition of running back Rashad Jennings' ankle injury on Monday other than that he aggravated the injury in a Week 15 victory over Washington, per the New York Daily News.

"Whether or not we're all the way back to square one, I don't know that," Coughlin said.

Jennings left the game early in the first quarter with the issue and never returned. New York will face the Rams in Week 16.


Giants' Williams fills in for injured Jennings again Week 15


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Giants running back Andre Williams paced the rushing attack again Week 15 against the Redskins, as Rashad Jennings left Sunday's game early in the first quarter with an ankle injury and never returned.

Williams finished with a team-high 44 rushing yards on 18 carries, with his longest rush going 6 yards. He added one catch for 9 yards, but he was targeted four times in a 24-13 win.

The Giants are back in action Week 16 at St. Louis.


Giants' Rashad Jennings exits game Week 15 due to ankle injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Giants running back Rashad Jennings drew the start Sunday against the Redskins, but he received only one touch before exiting the game due to an ankle injury. He is listed as questionable to return.

Jennings had one carry for 3 yards on the first play of the game, but that was his only touch before the team announced in the second quarter he was questionable to return. Jennings has been battling an ankle injury since getting hurt Week 13 against the Jaguars.


Giants' Coughlin: Rashad Jennings, Andre Williams will both get work


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Friday Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams will both get work Sunday against the Redskins, per the Star-Ledger. Dan Graziano of ESPN reports that Jennings' ankle isn't fully recovered and is likely to limit his workload on Sunday.

Jennings has carried the ball 156 times for 603 yards and four touchdowns this season. Williams has 524 yards and six touchdowns on the ground on 158 carries.


Andre Williams thrives with Rashad Jennings limited


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/7/2014) Here's something you haven't heard before: Giants running back Andre Williams was awesome filling in for Rashad Jennings Week 14 at Tennessee. In no shortage of opportunities prior to Week 14, the rookie had been mostly a dud, but he finally showed the ability that had the Fantasy Football world so excited about him coming into the season, piling up 131 yards on 24 carries.

Of course, 50 of those yards came on a single carry -- a pitch that he bobbled at first before finding a hole and speeding past the secondary for a touchdown -- but he showed vision and burst on the play. It wasn't a run just anyone would have pulled off. Also encouraging was the fact he averaged 3.5 yards per carry apart from that run, which doesn't sound all that impressive, but compared to his 2.9 yards per carry entering the game, it was a big step forward.

Unlike Weeks 6-10, when he was contending with a sprained knee, Jennings wasn't inactive for this one, but he was clearly limited by an ankle injury, getting just three touches. He should be healthier for Week 15 against Washington, but after the way Williams performed in this one, he may not have the backfield all to himself. Assuming good health, Jennings is still the preferred option to Williams in Fantasy, but the Giants backfield could become like the Browns' to close out the season.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Giants running back Rashad Jennings was active Sunday against the Titans after being considered questionable to play due to an ankle injury he suffered Week 13.

Jennings was limited to two carries for 5 yards, while adding one catch for 17 yards during a 36-7 win. The Giants are back in action Week 15 against the Redskins. Jennings totaled 13 carries for 55 yards in Week 4 against Washington.

Giants RB Jennings remains out Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2014) An ankle ailment again has Giants running back Rashad Jennings absent from practice Thursday. Jennings said he's hoping to get back on the field Friday, per the Bergen Record.

Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) won't practice Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/3/2014) Giants coach Tom Coughlin announced running back Rashad Jennings won't practice Wednesday after injuring his ankle in Sunday's loss at Jacksonville.

More good than bad for Rashad Jennings owners


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/1/2014) The good news is that after forfeiting carries to rookie Andre Williams Week 12 against Dallas, including at the goal line, Rashad Jennings was definitively the Giants' go-to running back Week 13 at Jacksonville, rushing 26 times for 91 yards and two touchdowns, with one of those touchdowns coming inside the 5-yard line.

The bad news is that his last carry came with about 12 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. He suffered an ankle injury and was unable to return in what ended up being a one-point loss for the Giants.

Early reports say the injury isn't serious and that Jennings should be able to return for Week 14 at Tennessee. You'll obviously want to keep an eye on his progress over the course of the week, but now that he appears to have distanced himself from Williams again, his health should be only reason you think twice about starting him.

Certainly when he's been in the lineup, he's performed like a must-start Fantasy running back, and he could be in for big numbers again vs. the league's 32nd-ranked run defense.


Report: Giants' Jennings unlikely to miss time due to ankle injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Giants running back Rashad Jennings isn't believed to have suffered a serious ankle injury Sunday against the Jaguars, a source told NFL.com. He is unlikely to miss any time.

Jennings, who rushed for 91 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries, said after Sunday's game he wasn't worried about missing time. He said he couldn't go back into the game because he couldn't press down on his injured ankle, per the New York Daily News.

The Giants are back in action Week 14 at Tennessee.


Giants' Jennings totals two TDs before injuring ankle Week 13


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Giants running back Rashad Jennings had one of his better games this season Sunday at Jacksonville. However, Jennings was unable to finish out the 25-24 loss as he suffered an ankle injury in the fourth quarter.

Jennings' last carry of the game was a 3-yard run with 12:22 left in the fourth quarter. He paced the Giants' rushing attack Sunday with a team-high 91 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries. He added three catches for 3 yards.

Jennings gave New York a 7-0 lead with a 2-yard rushing touchdown to start the second quarter. He put New York ahead 21-0 with a 17-yard touchdown run with 6:30 left in the second quarter.

It was the third two-touchdown game of Jennings' career. He had his first rushing touchdown Sunday since Week 3.

Jennings said he couldn't go back into Sunday's game because he couldn't press down on his injured ankle, according to the New York Daily News. However, he is not worried about missing time. The Giants are back in action Week 14 at Tennessee.


Andre Williams cuts into Rashad Jennings' numbers


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2014) In his second game back from a four-game absence for a knee injury, Giants running back Rashad Jennings topped 100 total yards for just the third time this season thanks in large part to a season-high eight catches. But outside of PPR leagues, his Fantasy owners couldn't help but feel disappointed by the performance. That's because the one time the Giants ran the ball inside the 5-yard line, they gave it to Andre Williams, who promptly scored.

Basically, he stole Jennings' touchdown. That's one way of looking at it, anyway. And given that Williams got 10 carries to Jennings' 19, it probably wasn't a fluke occurrence. The Giants made a point to involve Williams and have always considered him the better power back of the two.

It wasn't so evident in Week 11, when Jennings got 18 carries to Williams' two. But Jennings played 84 percent of the Giants' snaps then compared to 64 percent in Week 12. And he wasn't so clearly the team's primary option until the fourth quarter, when they required a pass catcher after falling behind.

Clearly, Jennings is still a great option in PPR leagues, but in standard formats, this timeshare is some cause for alarm. Fortunately, his matchup Week 13 at Jacksonville should make him worth starting in all formats.


Giants RB Rashad Jennings totals 120 yards in Week 12 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Giants running back Rashad Jennings rushed for just 52 yards on 19 carries but caught eight of his 10 targets for 68 yards in his team's 31-28 loss to the Cowboys in Week 12.

Jennings drew the start and out-touched rookie Andre Williams 27-11 but watched his teammate score from three yards out in the second quarter. Despite averaging just 2.7 yards per carry, Williams was able to stay involved by being the second-most targeted receiver on the team. Though Jennings hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 3, his total yardage represented his best performance since rushing for 176 yards in his third game of the year. Jennings is set to face the Jaguars in Week 13.


No setbacks for Giants RB Rashad Jennings on Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) Giants running back Rashad Jennings (knee) told reporters he came through Sunday's game against the 49ers without any setbacks, and added that he didn't get rusty "because I'm always moving," according to Newsday on Monday.

Jennings missed the previous four games with knee sprain before rushing for a team-high 59 rushing yards on 18 carries. He also caught four passes for 8 yards in the 16-10 defeat. He has 455 yards on the ground and two touchdowns this season.


Giants lean on Rashad Jennings heavily in return


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) The Giants gave Rashad Jennings the bulk of the work in Week 11 against the 49ers, with Andre Williams taking a backseat in the 16-10 loss.

Williams touched the ball just three times in the game, as the Giants seemed disinterested in working Jennings back in slowly. He had 18 carries and four receptions in his first game in nearly a month, ending up with 67 all-purpose yards in the loss.

Williams got plenty of work with Jennings out, and showed only that he isn't ready for a bigger role yet. He averaged just 3.3 yards per carry on 50 rushes over four games, so it isn't surprising to see Jennings get a heavy workload as soon as he was ready.

The split might be a bit less extreme in some games, but it looks like Jennings is going to get as much work as he can handle. Of course, the last time the team tried to do that, the oft-injured back ended up sidelined for more than a month. Still, as long as he is healthy, Jennings looks like a solid Fantasy option moving forward. 


Giants RB Rashad Jennings rushes for 59 yards in return


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
