Rashad Jennings atop Giants' depth chart


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:11 pm ET) As expected, the Giants listed Rashad Jennings as their starting running back. The unofficial depth chart, which could change quickly, has David Wilson as the No. 2 back followed by Peyton Hillis and rookie Andre Williams.


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. The Newark Star-Ledger believes it "doesn't look good" for Hillis

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.

Peyton Hillis re-signs with Giants


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) Free agent running back Peyton Hillis re-signed with the Giants to provide depth in the backfield, reports the New York Daily News. Hillis, 28, ran for 247 yards and two touchdowns and caught 13 passes for 96 yards last season.

Hillis received a two-year, $1.8 million deal.


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.


Giants running backs combine for 67 rushing yards


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/29/2013) Giants running back Andre Brown was benched for a large chunk of Sunday's 20-6 win over Washington after fumbling for the third time in his last four games. He finished the game with 13 carries for 11 yards. He had gained zero yards on his first six carries. 

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. 


Five Giant probable ready to go


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Giants OL David Diehl, RB Peyton Hillis, CB Jayron Hosley, DT Cullen Jenkins and CB Terrell Thomas are active Week 17.

All five players entered the week probable on the team's injury report. Hillis is coming back from a concussion.


Five Giants ruled probable


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Giants CB Terrell Thomas, OL David Diehl, DT Cullen Jenkins, CB Jayron Hosley and RB Peyton Hillis are probable Week 17.

Thomas, Diehl and Jenkins were limited Friday. Hosley and Hillis practiced in full. With Andre Brown also probable, Hillis likely won't see much action.


Andre Brown, Peyton Hillis pass concussion tests


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/25/2013) Giants running backs Andre Brown and Peyton Hillis were limited participants in a jog-through practice Wednesday after passing NFL-mandated concussion tests, reports the New York Post. Brown was forced from the Week 16 win at Detroit, while Hillis hasn't played since suffering a concussion Week 15 vs. Seattle.

Both are on track to play Sunday against Washington.


Victor Cruz, Jason Pierre-Paul among New York's inactives


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Wide receiver Victor Cruz (knee, concussion) and defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) were among the Giants' inactives for Week 16 at Detroit. Other players listed inactive for New York were: Ryan Nassib, Cooper Taylor, Peyton Hillis, Allen Bradford and David Diehl.

Four Giants ruled out Week 16


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2013) Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul, WR Victor Cruz, RB Peyton Hillis and S Cooper Taylor have been ruled out Week 16 against the Lions.

Cruz had a procedure on his knee, and has been ruled out for the rest of the season. Pierre-Paul has missed three games due to a shoulder injury.


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.

Hillis had an impressive 27-yard run in which he punished a defensive back trying to tackle him. He added a 6-yard catch. Hillis visits the Chargers in Week 14.


Giants inactives Week 12


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) The Giants have made QB Ryan Nassib, CB Corey Webster, RB Peyton Hillis, OL Dallas Reynolds, DT Markus Kuhn, TE Adrien Robinson and WR Hakeem Nicks inactive Week 12 against the Cowboys.

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


Giants announce Week 11 inactives


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) The Giants have ruled the following players inactive for Week 11 against the Packers: quarterback Ryan Nassib, defensive back Corey Webster, running back Peyton Hillis, running back Allen Bradford, guard Dallas Reynolds, defensive lineman Markus Kuhn and tight end Adrien Robinson.

Peyton Hillis supplanted in lead role Week 10


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) After taking a lead role Week 7 and Week 8, Giants running back Peyton Hillis settled into a backup role Week 10 vs. Oakland, as running back Andre Brown (leg) made his season debut. Brown rushed for a team-high 115 yards, while Hillis totaled 21 rushing yards on five carries.

Hills only had one catch in the game, but he gained no yards and lost a fumble on the reception in the first quarter. Hillis' last touch of the game came on the final play of the first half. Brown carried the load in the second half for New York.

The Giants are back in action Week 11 vs. Green Bay.


Giants coach has 'set plan' for running backs Week 10


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2013) With running backs Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) and Andre Brown (leg) expected to join the mix for playing time Week 10 vs. Oakland, the Giants are going to have a crowded backfield, which has featured Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox in recent weeks. Giants coach Tom Coughlin has an idea on how he will use his running backs, but he's not telling.

“There will be a set plan,” Coughlin said Wednesday.

The Star-Ledger expects Hillis to be the primary back Sunday, with Jacobs and Brown being sprinkled into the running game. Brown, who has been out all season, is the real wild card.

Brown said there will be a special package of plays installed for him, but it doesn't appear Coughlin is ready to give Brown a heavy workload in his first game back.

"He’s ready to help," Coughlin said. "But there is a big difference between game day and practice. All I think about is how he played a year ago. I’m looking forward to the return of that player, quite frankly."


Peyton Hillis preparing for crowded backfield situation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2013) Giants running back Peyton Hillis is eager to get back onto the field Week 10 vs. Oakland after getting a chance to rest during the team's bye Week 9.

"I feel great," he said, per The Star-Ledger. "I finally feel like myself again. I’m ready to play. No matter how much I get to play, I’m looking forward to it. I’m just blessed to be here. I’m not selfish at all. I’m just going to do what they tell me to do."

Hillis is referring to the about-to-be-crowded backfield with the return of Brandon Jacobs from a hamstring injury and Andre Brown from a leg injury. Hillis had strong performances Week 7 and Week 8 to earn continued reps in the backfield, but he likely won't see as many touches as he did in the team's previous two games.

Hillis will be facing a Raiders' defense yielding 80.6 rushing yards and 37.1 receiving yards per game to running backs. Running backs have averaged just 61 rushing yards in the last four games against Oakland. However, running backs have totaled seven touchdowns (five rushing) in the last six games against Oakland, which has led running backs to averaging 18.5 Fantasy points per game in that span.

Hillis is at best a low-end No. 3 Fantasy running back or flex option in deeper formats Week 10.


Peyton Hillis bulldozes his way for 70 rushing yards


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) Giants running back Peyton Hillis ended up as the team's primary back for a second straight game Week 8 at Philadelphia with Brandon Jacobs inactive with a hamstring injury. Although Hillis didn't start the game, he finished with a team-high 70 rushing yards on 20 carries during a 15-7 win.

Hillis was much improved running the football Sunday after averaging just 2.0 yards on 18 carries Week 7 vs. Minnesota. Hillis' longest carry against the Eagles went 9 yards. He added three catches for 15 yards. He was targeted five times. Though, after scoring during a Week 7, Hillis was denied a touchdown Sunday.

The Giants are on a bye Week 9. When they return to action Week 10 vs. Oakland, the backfield could get crowded if Jacobs, David Wilson (neck) and Andre Brown (leg) all return from injuries.


It's Peyton Hillis or bust for Giants at running back


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/25/2013) The Giants are concerned that featured-back-by-default Peyton Hillis will be susceptible to injury returning to action so quickly and taking a pounding with his physical style of running. But they also admit that they have no choice but to ride him.

The loss to Brandon Jacobs to a hamstring injury put Hillis front and center. He and rookie Michael Cox are the only healthy backs remaining on the roster.

"I guess you have to be conscious of (an injury to Hillis) to a point," offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride told the New York Daily News. "But it's just that your options are so limited anyway. There's nowhere else to go."

Hillis contributed 36 yards on 18 carries and a touchdown in Week 7 against Minnesota. He added five receptions for 45 yards.


Peyton Hillis likely to stay Fantasy relevant Week 8


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2013) Peyton Hillis didn't get much time to get settled in with the Giants. With a hamstring injury forcing Brandon Jacobs to sit out Monday's game against the Vikings, Hillis -- who was signed early last week -- was immediately given significant reps.

Luckily for the Giants, Hillis performed better than expected. Though he averaged just 2.0 yards on 18 carries, Hillis scored a touchdown and totaled 45 receiving yards on five catches. Even if Jacobs is back Week 8 at Philadelphia, you have to expect Hillis has earned his way into the lineup, especially in passing situations.

Running backs are averaging 87.6 rushing yards, 37.4 receiving yards and 14.4 Fantasy points per week against Philadelphia. Running backs have also totaled five rushing touchdowns. However, the Eagles have improved against the run the last few weeks. After running backs averaged 105 rushing yards in the first four games, they averaged just 64.3 rushing yards in the last three games against Philadelphia.

Fantasy owners in need of running back help Week 8 should certainly look to add Hillis off waivers since he could see a decent amount of work again Sunday. If you have to start Hillis, it's probably best to consider him a low-end No. 2 Fantasy running back/flex option.


Peyton Hillis gets 23 touches


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2013) Signed five days earlier, Giants running back Peyton Hillis got 23 touches in the win over the Vikings. Hillis ran 18 times for 36 yards, including a 1-yard touchdown plunge in the third quarter.

Hillis excelled as an outlet for Eli Manning, catching five of six targets for 45 yards and breaking several tackles along the way.

Hillis got five more touches than rookie Michael Cox and could have another prominent role in Week 8 at the Eagles, especially if Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) and David Wilson (neck) remain sidelined.
