by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Giants running back Rashad Jennings said Monday he still hopes to return following the team's Week 8 bye, according to the New York Daily News. However, he still called his situation "day to day."

Jennings has missed the last two games due to a knee injury. The Giants return to action Week 9 against the Colts.

Meanwhile, cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle, hamstring) and linebacker Spencer Paysinger (hamstring) were limited participants on Friday, leaving them questionable for Sunday.

Listed as questionable are defensive end Robert Ayers (neck) and linebacker Jon Beason (foot/toe). Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle/hamstring) and punter Steve Weatherford (ankle) are both probable.


Giants RB Rashad Jennings officially ruled out for Week 6


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) As expected, Giants running back Rashad Jennings was officially ruled out for Week 6 at Philadelphia, according to the Record. Jennings left Week 5 at home against the Falcons with an MCL sprain, which is expected to keep him sidelined for a few weeks. He has yet to resume running.

Jennings got off to a fast start before the injury, rushing for 396 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 91 carries through five games. Andre Williams will likely get the start on Sunday.


Report: Giants' Rashad Jennings could miss 'few weeks' with MCL sprain


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Giants running back Rashad Jennings told reporters he's dealing with a left MCL sprain, which could keep him out of action for a "few weeks," according to Newsday.

Jennings left Week 5 at home against the Falcons and was seen limping in the team's facility while wearing a brace on his left knee. He told reporters the injury will "definitely" not require surgery, according to the Wall Street Journal. Andre Williams will get the start Week 6 at Philadelphia if Jennings is unable to play.


Rashad Jennings injury opens door for Andre Williams


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/5/2014) Week 5 started out great for Giants running back Rashad Jennings. He was back carrying the load on offense after ceding a decent number of carries to rookie Andre Williams in a blowout win in Week 4, getting 12 of the Giants' first 14 backfield touches. The streak came to an abrupt end, though, when he left early in the third quarter with a sprained knee.

Though Jennings doesn't think he'll miss much time (he'll have an MRI Monday to confirm), I'd have some concerns about his role going forward. For the second straight week, Williams looked good in his absence. He had 65 yards on 20 carries, including a 3-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. The Giants leaned heavily on him in the fourth quarter, his bruising style helping them to a come-from-behind victory.

Provided he's healthy, Jennings won't disappear from the game plan, but at age 22, Williams is the team's future at the position. And if the future begins with a backfield platoon this year, Jennings would most likely lose must-start status in Fantasy.


Giants RB Rashad Jennings headed for MRI Monday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Giants running back Rashad Jennings, who left Sunday's game vs. Atlanta due to a knee sprain, said he will have an MRI on his left knee Monday, according to Newsday. Jennings, who was replaced by rookie Andre Williams in the second half, doesn't feel he will be sidelined for long.

Knee injury forces Rashad Jennings out of game Week 5


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Giants running back Rashad Jennings was downgraded from questionable to out Week 5 vs. Atlanta due to a knee sprain. Jennings was replaced by rookie Andre Williams, who recorded his second career rushing touchdown in the third quarter after Jennings left the game.

Jennings finished the game with 55 rushing yards on 10 carries, while adding two catches for 17 yards. The Giants are back in action Week 6 at Philadelphia.


Giants' Rashad Jennings questionable to return with knee injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Giants running back Rashad Jennings was listed as questionable to return after suffering a knee injury in the third quarter Sunday against the Falcons. Jennings had 10 carries for 55 yards and two catches for 17 yards before getting hurt.

Rashad Jennings should come roaring back


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/30/2014) After being limited to just three touches in the second half of a blowout victory Week 4 at Washington, Giants running back Rashad Jennings has a chance to get back in his Fantasy owners' good graces in Week 5. He'll be facing a Falcons defense that just gave up 241 rushing yards to the Vikings, making them 28th against the run. They've also allowed nine touchdowns on the ground, four more than any other team.

Because rookie Andre Williams performed so well in relief of Jennings last week, rushing for 66 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries, you may be worried the two will split carries in some form or fashion going forward. While I don't think that's much of a concern -- Williams was already getting 5-10 carries a game and not doing much with them -- I'm not sure it really matters with this matchup. The Falcons have been the magic elixir for running back tandems this season. Not only did the Vikings' Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon both have big games against them last week, the former rushing for 78 yards and three touchdowns and the latter rushing for 135 yards, but the Bengals' Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill both had big games against them in Week 2, the former rushing for 90 yards and a touchdown and the latter rushing for 74 yards and a touchdown.

Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank Jennings among their top six running backs for Week 5, and I agree wholeheartedly. He remains a must-start despite the disappointment of last week.


Rashad Jennings has a light day Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2014) Giants running back Rashad Jennings received just 13 carries Thursday against Washington.

With the Giants up big early, Andre Williams received more playing time in the second half. Jennings was effective when he had the ball, picking up 55 rushing yards. He also had a chance to catch a touchdown pass, but couldn't handle the ball. Jennings was wide open on the play, and could have walked into the end zone. He dropped the pass from Eli Manning. Jennings had received a lot of work prior to this game, so the low workload may be good for his long term health.

Jennings will take on the Falcons Week 5. 


FFT Blog: Rashad Jennings worth a start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) The Giants have made some noise about limiting Rashad Jennings' workload in Week 4 against Washington Thursday, coming off a 34-carry performance last week. Howver, running backs have fared pretty well on Thursday Night Football in the past, so Fantasy owners shouldn't be too concerned.

I examined the history of running backs on Thursday night at the Fantasy Football Today blog, with a look ahead at Jennings' matchup. Here is the relevant part: 

"[Jennings] has a tougher matchup against Washington, who have held backs to a miniscule 2.7 yards per carry and 5.7 Fantasy points per game. That number is inflated a bit by games against the hapless Jaguars rushing attack and an Eagles' offensive line that has been destroyed by injuries so far. Still, both Dave Richard and Jamey Eisenberg have Jennings ranked as a top-7 back for Week 3, so he should be worth the gamble, even if the team does try to limit his workload on the short week."


Report: Andre Williams could have bigger role Thursday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) Giants rookie running back Andre Williams might be more involved in the gameplan Thursday at Washington, reports ESPN.com. That's because starter Rashad Jennings is coming off a career-high 34 carries Week 3 against Houston.

With the short turnaround for Jennings, the team is monitoring him closely, the report said. Williams has received 19 carries in three games, producing just 39 yards (2.1 ypc).


Rashad Jennings continuing to push Andre Williams out


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) The Giants drafted Andre Williams in the fourth round last June with the hopes that he would be able to push newly-signed Rashad Jennings for the starting role as a rookie. After three weeks, however, Jennings' job seems as safe as can be, given how little Williams has done.

Williams put up another subpar performance in Week 3 against the Texans Sunday, and now has just 39 yards on 19 carries, with a long run of just 5 yards. Jennings, on the other hand, ranks third in the NFL with 286 yards, and has doubled Williams' yards-per-carry average behind the same line.

The Giants have responded to the disparity in the duo's performance by adjusting their roles in the offense. Williams has gone from playing 30 percent of the snaps in the opener to 26 and 23 percent in the last two games. Unless Jennings gets hurt, there is little reason to think this pattern will reverse.

Williams is still owned in 49 percent of CBSSports.com leagues, and has little value beyond serving as a handcuff for Jennings, who missed just one game a year ago. 


Rashad Jennings has career day in Week 3 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Giants running back Rashad Jennings put together a career day Sunday against the Texans, leading New York to a 30-17 win Week 3.

Jennings totaled 176 rushing yards on 34 carries -- both career highs. His previous career bests were 150 rushing yards and 23 carries.

Jennings, who had 110 rushing yards through two games, also totaled his second rushing touchdown of the season on a 1-yard run with 1:07 left in the second quarter that put New York ahead 14-0.

His longest carry was 18 yards and he was stopped for no gain or a loss just three times. The Giants are back in action Thursday (Week 4) at Washington. 


Rashad Jennings has costly fumble in Week 2 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Giants running back Rashad Jennings totaled a team-high 64 rushing yards Week 2 against the Cardinals. Unfortunately, it wasn't nearly enough in a 25-14 loss.

In fact, Jennings' biggest play Sunday wasn't even positive. With New York trailing 22-14, the Giants were putting together a pretty good drive in the fourth quarter and were deep in Cardinals' territory when quarterback Eli Manning hit Jennings for a short pass. However, Jennings slipped after a 2-yard gain and coughed up the football as he hit the ground. Arizona recovered the fumble.

Jennings' longest carry went for 13 yards. He had four catches for 45 yards. The Giants are back in action Week 3 against the Texans.


Rashad Jennings scores late-game TD in New York debut


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Giants running back Rashad Jennings showed some struggles early on but bounced back with a late touchdown -- his first with his new club -- in a Week 1 loss to the Lions.

Jennings earned the majority of the reps, including in goal line situations. He scored from 1-yard out in the fourth quarter. Because the Giants trailed early, the team relied more on the passing game. As a result, he took only 16 handoffs for 46 yards and a touchdown, averaging 2.9 yards per carry in a 35-14 defeat. He caught four of the five passes thrown his way for 50 yards.

Jennings will look for a bigger workload come Week 2 at home against Arizona.

Rashad Jennings has the chance to be the focal point of New York offense


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/6/2014) Giants running back Rashad Jennings never had the chance to produce the kind of numbers to be considered an elite back in Fantasy. He will get his first crack at a full season as the starter come Monday night against the Lions at Ford Field.

532 of his 733 rushing yards last season came as a starter. He also scored five of his six rushing touchdowns in that eight-game span as a starter for the Raiders last season. Jennings is expected to shoulder the load this season, with Andre Williams possibly giving him a break during some goal-line scenarios.

Detroit's front seven could give Jennings a hard time, but because Eli Manning is still learning the new offense, Jennings has the opportunity to be the most valuable asset of the offense. Consider him a decent No. 2 starting option for the opening week of the season.

Andre Williams 'still a bit too raw'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) Giants coaches told ESPN.com that rookie running back Andre Williams is "still a bit too raw for them to count on him extensively, at least at the beginning of the season." As such, starter Rashad Jennings "should factor significantly into the passing game and be their workhorse ball carrier when the regular season begins."

Rashad Jennings racks up 67 yards in preseason tuneup


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Giants running back Rashad Jennings got nearly all of the snaps with the first-team offense Friday night against the Jets at MetLife Stadium.

Jennings looked sharp and broke free for a 23-yard run in the second quarter, his longest gain of the night. He got 13 first-half touches compared to zero for Andre Williams. The first unit only played the first two quarters, and Jennings finished with 13 carries for 67 yards, averaging 5.2 yards per attempt. He caught one of his three targets for 7 yards.

Rashad Jennings to get the 'bulk of the carries'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Giants running back Rashad Jennings will get the "bulk of the carries" in Week 1, reports ESPN.com. Impressive rookie Andre Williams will mix in behind Jennings and possibly get the goal-line carries.

Rashad Jennings, Andre Williams have quiet preseason games


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Giants running backs Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams had quiet games Saturday night against the Colts in preseason action.

Jennings got the start and worked with the first-team offense for four drives. He took seven handoffs for 17 yards, averaging 2.4 yards per attempt. His longest run was an 8-yard dash on the third drive of the night.

Williams saw most of his work with the backups. He entered the game on the fourth drive with the first-team and took four handoffs for 14 yards on the ground. He finished the game with eight carries for 19 yards, averaging 2.4 yards per attempt. His longest run was also an 8-yard dash on the fourth drive of the night.
