Who is our Dave Richard targeting in his Fantasy drafts at this late stage of the preseason? He shares his final list of breakout candidates for 2014.
Rashad Jennings turned a career season with the Raiders into a nice contract and likely starting job with the Giants this year. He signed a four-year, $14 million deal this offseason and should be No. 1 on the depth chart ahead of rookie Andre Williams. Jennings was great last season in relief of Darren McFadden, putting up 163 carries for 733 yards and six touchdowns and 36 catches for 292 yards, all career-highs. More importantly he had six games with double digits in Fantasy points. Jennings should be considered a flex option on Draft Day but there is some concern that Williams will steal enough reps -- including at the goal line -- to keep Jennings' numbers lower than some expect. We also caution that Jennings, 29, has had trouble staying healthy in his career. Late Round 5 should be the earliest anyone drafts Jennings in a standard league, with a slight bump for those in PPR formats.
