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."

Muscle strain sidelines Peyton Hillis


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/13/2014) Giants running back Peyton Hillis has missed some practice time with a low-grade muscle strain, the Newark Star-Ledger reports. He hopes to be ready for minicamp next week. 

"I think I did it around the first day of practice that we were out on the field and I played with it for a week and a half and strained it a little more this past Thursday," he said. "But I've been getting better, been getting healthy."

Hillis is competing for playing time in camp this summer with a number of other running backs including assumed starter Rashad Jennings, rookie Andre Williams and speedster David Wilson. 


Peyton Hillis on the roster bubble?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/13/2014) Signed to a one-year deal with very little guaranteed money, the future of veteran Giants running back Peyton Hillis is up in the air after the team signed Rashad Jennings and drafted Andre Williams, both of whom are physical, 230-pound running backs.

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.

Report: 50 percent chance Peyton Hillis returns to Giants


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2014) Giants running back Peyton Hillis, who ran for 247 yards and two touchdowns in seven games after being signed off the street, showed in 2013 that he's a quality backup who can still play, according to The Star-Ledger. The paper estimates there's a 50 percent chance the unrestricted free agent returns to the Giants.

With David Wilson's health in doubt and Andre Brown also entering free agency, Hillis "has earned an invite to training camp if he doesn't sign with another team," the report said. Hillis turns 28 next week.

Peyton Hillis ran the ball 17 times, for 56 yards. He also caught one pass for six yards, but held onto the ball and was the more effective of the two backs. 

Brown finishes the season with 492 rushing yards and three touchdowns over eight games. Hillis ends the year with 247 and two touchdowns over seven games.

Peyton Hillis exits game Week 15 due to concussion


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Giants running back Peyton Hillis was evaluated for a concussion in the fourth quarter Week 15 against the Seahawks after getting hurt on a 14-yard screen pass. Hillis would not return to the game, as the Giants suffered a 23-0 loss.

Hillis didn't get a touch on offense until the 3:17 mark of the third quarter, when he replaced an ineffective Andre Brown. Hillis remained as the primary running back until getting hurt with a little less than 11 minutes remaining.

Hillis finished with 8 yards on three carries and two catches for 24 yards. The Giants are back in action Week 16 at Detroit.


Peyton Hillis scores second TD of season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Giants running back Peyton Hillis found the end zone for his second touchdown of the season during Sunday’s loss to the Chargers in Week 14.

Hillis punched it from 1-yard out during the opening drive of the second half. He finished the game with only four carries for 11 yards (2.8 yards per carry) and a touchdown in a 37-14 defeat.

The Giants will host the Seahawks in Week 15.

Giants backup RBs deep league options if healthy


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/5/2013) Giants running backs Peyton Hillis and Brandon Jacobs have rotated inactive weeks since Andre Brown's return -- Hillis was out Weeks 11 and 12, Jacobs was out 10 and 13. But when the two have played, they've been fairly helpful to deeper league (16-plus teams) owners. 

Hillis had 45 rushing yards in Week 13 against Washington and 21 in Week 10 against Oakland before fumbling and giving way to Brown; Jacobs ran for 75 in Week 12 and scored a touchdown in Week 11. 

Neither should be on rosters of standard-sized leagues, outside of handcuffs to Brown. But in deeper leagues, where a touchdown could be a boon for a Fantasy owner, the active back here may have some value on a weekly basis. 


Peyton Hillis rumbles for 45 yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) With Brandon Jacobs (knee) sidelined, running back Peyton Hillis led the Giants with 45 rushing yards Week 13. Hillis averaged 7.5 yards on his six carries after being a healthy scratch the two previous games.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Nicks was questionable heading into the game, but expected to play. Webster was the only player ruled out on Friday's injury report.
