Andre Williams 'still a bit too raw'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:28 am ET) 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."

Giants still plan committee approach at running back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Despite the likely loss of David Wilson to a neck injury, Giants coach Tom Couglin indicated he'll use a running back-by-committee approach. Rashad Jennings is the starter, with rookie Andre Williams, veteran Peyton Hills and Michael Cox and Kendall Gaskins also in the mix.

"I think we have some talented guys at that spot," Coughlin told The Star-Ledger on Thursday. "I think Rashad has done well. I think the young kid (Williams) has come along the more we have given him to do. Michael Cox has had his spots.

"Gaskins did some pretty good things today. We’ll let this thing play out. It’ll be some kind of combination of people involved. They’ll have plenty of opportunities in the preseason to show us what they can do and where they fit."


Rashad Jennings atop Giants' depth chart


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Rashad Jennings set to start for Giants?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/1/2014) When the Giants signed running back Rashad Jennings this summer, it was with the intention of making him their workhorse back, ESPN reports. His ability to run between the tackles as well as catch passes makes him the most versatile back on their roster. 

However, that was before they drafted Andre Williams and expected David Wilson to return. ESPN believes Wilson could push Jennings for carries and catches once he's cleared and has impressed the coaches enough with his abilities. If he's healthy he'll play a role.

Williams could also develop as a rushing downs type of back though he'll have to make strides in training camp first.

by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Giants to use Rashad Jennings in screen game


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/20/2014) Giants quarterback Eli Manning will be throwing screens this year, and running back Rashad Jennings will be the prime recipient, reports the New York Post.

"He's someone I have a tremendous amount of respect for," offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo said. "I think he has a nice skill set for the position."

Jennings is expected to start for the Giants, but he could receive some competition for touches from rookie Andre Williams and David Wilson, if he's healthy from last year's neck injury.


Giants add RB Andre Williams in Round 4


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2014) With the 113th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the New York Giants selected running back Andre Williams from Boston College.

Williams is a tough physical back that had some issues in receiving drills at the combine, which is why his draft stock took a hit. However, he rushed for 2,177 yards and 18 touchdowns in 2013, averaging 6.1 yards per carry. He also broke out for a 339-yard, two-touchdown performance on the ground against N.C. State.

The Giants currently have Rashad Jennings, Peyton Hillis and David Wilson under contract.

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."

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.

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.

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.

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.
