Rashad Jennings a good fit for Giants


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/1/2014) The Giants signed running back Rashad Jennings to a four-year deal worth $14 million, and coach Tom Coughlin expects him to be worth the money.

Coughlin said at the NFL owners meeting that Jennings is a good fit for what the Giants want to do on offense this year.

"I think he's very consistent," Coughlin said. "He has a great attitude. The more you looked the better you liked. First and second down, he's outstanding. Coming out of the backfield, he can catch the ball. He's a good screen runner. Can he go the distance? Boom, there he goes 80 (yards). You can see that. I just think he's a good football player that will be a very, very solid and impactful guy in our offense."


Rashad Jennings gets four-year, $14 million deal from Giants


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/12/2014) Rashad Jennings' contract with the Giants is for four years and is worth $14 million including $3 million guaranteed according to Comcast Sportsnet. It appears as if Jennings will begin the year as the Giants' starting running back. 

Giants sign Rashad Jennings


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/11/2014) The Giants have signed free agent running back Rashad Jennings, reports ESPN.

Jennings, 28, tweeted that he's "flying to the Big Apple" Tuesday night and he's "looking forward to signing the dotted lines with Giants."

Jennings spent 2013 with the Raiders, where he had a career season with 163 carries for 733 yards and six touchdowns and 36 catches for 292 yards. Every stat was a career high.

The Giants currently have Peyton Hillis and David Wilson under contract and could still bring back free agent Andre Brown, but this signing suggests Jennings will have the chance to start for the Giants in Week 1.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2014) Listing the team's priority free agents, Raiders coach Dennis Allen specifically mentioned running back Rashad Jennings but not Darren McFadden, reports ProFootballTalk.com. Jennings played last season on a one-year deal, averaging 4.5 yards per carry and scoring six touchdowns.

Raiders want to re-sign Rashad Jennings


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2014) Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie said he wants to re-sign running back Rashad Jennings and that he expects running back Darren McFadden to test the free-agent market, reports ESPN.com. Jennings took over as the starter Week 10 and finished with 733 rushing yards and six touchdowns.

Jennings, who turns 29 in March, averaged 4.5 yards per carry and added 36 catches for 292 yards.


Oakland's ground game gets stuffed in finale


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Raiders running backs Rashad Jennings and Darren McFadden were each held in check during Sunday's loss to the Broncos in Week 17.

Both running backs were held under 10 rushing yards in a 34-14 defeat. Jennings rushed for nine yards on four carries, averaging 2.3 yards per attempt. He also caught two of three targets for eight yards. McFadden had seven carries for six yards (0.9 yards per carry). He caught three of the four passes thrown his way for 15 yards.

Jennings ended the year with 163 carries for 733 yards and six touchdowns while McFadden rushed for 379 yards and five touchdowns on 114 carries.

Rashad Jennings still the main man in Oakland


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2013) Although Darren McFadden returned from his ankle injury Week 16, he did not supplant Rashad Jennings as the Raiders' lead back. Jennings played 35 snaps to McFadden's 21 and out-touched him 13 to 5.

Jennings has six touchdowns in his past seven games entering Week 17 vs. Denver. And the Broncos have been getting killed by running backs lately. Over the last five games, running backs have piled up 571 rushing yards and six touchdowns against Denver while catching 23 passes. For the season, the Broncos give up the 11th-most Fantasy points (18.3 per game) to opposing RBs.

Consider Jennings a low-end RB1 or high-end RB2 on Sunday, even if he does lose a few touches to McFadden. 


Rashad Jennings gets vultured


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Raiders starting running back Rashad Jennings had a touchdown vultured by Darren McFadden in the Week 16 loss at San Diego. Jennings carried 10 times for 45 yards and caught all three of his targets for 27 yards.

Jennings, who rushed for two touchdowns Week 15, watched as McFadden hammered in a 5-yard score in the second quarter. Jennings failed to convert his own goal-line carry on another drive in the same period.

Jennings continued to demonstrate a bruising running style, and he's expected to start Week 17 against Denver.


Rashad Jennings strikes twice in return from concussion


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Raiders running back Rashad Jennings picked things up where he left off during Sunday’s contest against the Chiefs in Week 15.

In his first game back from a concussion, Jennings leaped over the pile for a 1-yard touchdown in the second quarter. He then scored his second touchdown of the quarter on a 1-yard with 3:03 minutes remaining in the first half. He finished the game with 103 yards of total offense, logging 91 yards on 23 carries (4.0 yards per carry) and 12 yards on three receptions in a 56-31 defeat.

Jennings has scored four touchdowns over the last two games. He has at least 76 rushing yards in five of his last six games played. He'll look to keep rolling in Week 16 against the Chargers in San Diego.

Rashad Jennings could be tough to trust vs. Chiefs


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2013) Raiders running back Rashad Jennings is on track to return from a one-game absence in Week 15 against the Chiefs.

Jennings scored two touchdowns before getting hurt on Thanksgiving against the Cowboys in Dallas. He'll face a Kansas City defense that has allowed 113.2 yards per game on the ground this season, which ranks 16th in the league. Opposing running backs have scored 15.00 Fantasy points per game this season.

Jennings may be eased back into things, so it may be hard to trust him this week. Consider him a low-end starting option in the majority of Fantasy formats for Week 15.

Rashad Jennings to return to starting role over Marcel Reece


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2013) Despite a 123-yard performance in which he scored on a 63-yard touchdown run in Week 14, Raiders fullback Marcel Reece will likely give way to returning starter Rashad Jennings with the Chiefs coming to town on Sunday.

Jennings completed concussion protocol and practiced on Wednesday. Reece will assume his previous role as a contributing player based on down and distance, according to the Contra Costa Times.

Darren McFadden, the back whom Jennings replaced as the starter, remained sideline Wednesday with an ankle injury.

Report: Marcel Reece to replace injured Rashad Jennings

Rashad Jennings questionable for battle against Jets


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Raiders featured back Rashad Jennings has been deemed questionable for Sunday against the Jets with a concussion. His absence would end a streak of four straight starts.

Rashad Jennings a candidate to bench in Fantasy leagues


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2013) Raiders running back Rashad Jennings wasn't around at the end of a Week 13 loss at Dallas because he suffered a concussion in the final minutes of the game. However, it's looking like Jennings will be ready to roll Week 14 at N.Y. Jets, giving Fantasy owners the opportunity to start the fifth-year back.

Though, you might want to keep Jennings on your bench Week 14. It's hard to fathom seeing how Jennings has scored in double digit in Fantasy points four of the last five games, averaging 15.8 Fantasy points in that span. But the Jets do pose a difficult matchup.

Running backs are averaging 11.3 Fantasy points per week against New York, which is the second-lowest average. Running backs are also averaging just 66.3 rushing yards and 21.4 receiving yards, while totaling seven touchdowns (six rushing) in 12 games. Only four running backs have totaled at least 10 Fantasy points against New York. They are Doug Martin, Fred Jackson, Jacquizz Rodgers and Stevan Ridley.

It's probably to consider other alternatives over Jennings Week 14 since the Jets have been very good against the run this season. Jennings is at best a low-end No. 3 Fantasy running back or flex option.


Rashad Jennings back on practice field Wednesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2013) Playing his Week 13 game on Thanksgiving could result in playing in Week 14 for Raiders new featured back Rashad Jennings.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rashad Jennings records two TDs before leaving game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2013) Raiders running back Rashad Jennings managed the first multi-touchdown game of his career Week 13 at Dallas. However, he wasn't around for the finish of the game as he suffered an apparent head injury late in the fourth quarter.

After falling to the turf following an 8-yard catch with 1:48 remaining, Jennings was inadvertently kneed in the head by a Dallas defender. Jennings stayed down for a few minutes before walking off the field with the help of trainers. Jennings did look woozy walking off the field.

Prior to getting hurt, Jennings rushed for only 35 yards on 17 carries, but he recorded two rushing touchdowns for the first time in his career. He added the one catch for 8 yards.

Jennings' first touchdown was a 1-yard run on 3rd-and-goal in the second quarter, which came one play after the officials overturned an Andre Holmes' 16-yard touchdown. The officials ruled Holmes down at the 1-yard line. Jennings' second touchdown was also a 1-yard run with 1:56 left in the second quarter. 

Jennings has totaled four rushing touchdowns in his last five games. The Raiders are back in action Week 14 at N.Y. Jets.


Dennis Allen indicates Rashad Jennings still his featured back


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Jennings leads the NFL with 553 total offensive yards since a hamstring injury sidelined McFadden on Nov. 3. McFadden is expected back for the game Thursday against Dallas, but not as the starter.

"You can't deny Rashad Jennings over the last month of the season," Allen told the San Jose Mercury News. "I think he's earned the right and deserves the right to continue to get his carries and touches and we'll do that."

Allen added that McFadden, who will be an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, will also receive reps upon his return.
