  Giants | Rashad Jennings doesn't practice    Thu Dec 18, 06:07 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Footballguys view: We would avoid Jennings completely given how poorly he performed last week, re-injuring his ankle as he did it.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings has not done any running    Thu Dec 18, 03:50 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) has not been able to do any running this week, according to head coach Tom Coughlin.

Footballguys view: We don't expect Jennings to play this weekend as he was barely on the field last week. We'd avoid him completely this week even if he plays. Andre Williams will get the carries and can be an OK RB3, although a tough St. Louis run defense dampens his prospects. Aside from Week 14, his efforts haven't exactly been much to write home about either.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings not on the field    Thu Dec 18, 12:35 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) is not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Footballguys view: Jennings was a huge disappointment last week as he has been most of the season. We'd avoid him this week even if he plays, which seems unlikely.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings to miss practice    Wed Dec 17, 11:18 AM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) will not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Footballguys view: We appreciate Jennings effort, but it doesn't seem like this ankle injury is getting much better. He's tried to play each of the last two weeks, but Jennings doesn't look right. Jennings has three carries for eight yards over that time. We could see Andre Williams with a much larger role once again in Week 16.

  Giants | Jacquian Williams, James Brewer to IR    Tue Dec 16, 05:06 PM

New York Giants LB Jacquian Williams (concussion) and OT James Brewer (concussion) were placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 16. DT Dominique Hamilton was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster, and C Adam Gettis was signed off the Pittsburgh Steelers' practice squad. The team also re-signed S Thomas Gordon to the practice squad.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings' status uncertain    Mon Dec 15, 05:06 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings' (ankle) status for Week 16 is uncertain, because the severity of the injury is not known, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. 'He did have a reoccurrence of the ankle and was not able to go back in the game,' Coughlin said. 'Whether or not we are all the way back to Square 1, I don't know yet. I don't have anything on that today yet.'

Footballguys view: Jennings is just too banged up for fantasy owners to rely on. If he is able to play in Week 16 we can't recommend him as anything more than a desperation flex play at this point.

  Giants | Rueben Randle benched    Sun Dec 14, 09:32 PM

New York Giants WR Rueben Randle was benched for at least the first quarter of the Week 15 game against the Washington Redskins, and it might have been longer had WR Kevin Ogletree (head) not suffered a head injury.

Footballguys view: The headline should read; Rueben Randle benched (AGAIN). We've seen this before with Randle this season. He's not a fantasy factor for championship fantasy games in Week 16, and Randle has little dynasty value.

  Giants | Odell Beckham has another big game    Sun Dec 14, 09:31 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. posted 12 receptions for 143 yards and three touchdowns in Week 15 against the Washington Redskins. He now holds the franchise rookie receiving yards record with two games to play.

Footballguys view: Beckham might be the fantasy MVP. He was either drafted late or picked up from the waiver wire, and he has been an elite WR1 for the second half of the season. He'll get the vulnerable Rams corners next week.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings aggravates injury    Sun Dec 14, 09:29 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) left the Week 15 game against the Washington Redskins after aggravating his ankle injury.

Footballguys view: Jennings could be on the shelf for the season because the Giants have no playoff hopes. Next week at St. Louis is a tough defensive draw either way, and Jennings is outside of our circle of trust even if he is active. Andre Williams hasn't been that effective in place of Jennings, so this is likely a situation to stay away from in the championship week.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings injures ankle    Sun Dec 14, 02:12 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in Week 15 and is considered questionable to return.

Footballguys view: Jennings had some uncertainty about his ankle coming into this game and appears to have run into trouble with it in this game. The Giants are out of it, so they could consider shutting Jenkins down for the year.

  Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. historically great    Sun Dec 14, 02:44 AM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. has at least 90 receiving yards in six consecutive games, which is an NFL record. He tied Bill Groman (1960) as the only NFL rookies to top 700 receiving yards in a six-game stretch.

  Giants | Eli Manning probable    Fri Dec 12, 02:21 PM

New York Giants QB Eli Manning (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 12, and is probable for Week 15.

Footballguys view: There was a report about a back issue for Manning earlier this week, but he still looks like a viable high ceiling streamer option against the abysmal Washington pass defense.

  Giants | Eli Manning limited in practice     Thu Dec 11, 03:12 PM

Updating a previous report, New York Giants QB Eli Manning (back) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 11.

Footballguys view: Manning had been doing OK in the offense but when things completely fell apart he began to struggle. At best right now he is a solid QB2, and as long as Odell Beckham Jr. (a WR1 in his own right) is healthy, he's at least got one weapon.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning (back) said he is not injured right now. Manning was listed as limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 10, with a back issue.

Footballguys view: Um, okay. He's not on the injury report for no reason. Manning should be good to go for the sweet Week 15 matchup against Washington's hapless defense.

  Giants | Andre Williams goes off in win    Sun Dec 7, 11:27 PM

New York Giants RB Andre Williams rushed for a season-high 131 yards in Week 14 against the Tennessee Titans, including a 50-yard touchdown scamper.

Footballguys view: Williams didn't do much early in this game, but as the Giants pulled away, he started to ramp up in the second half. Rashad Jennings will likely be healthier against the tougher run defense, so a lucky start of Williams this week was probably your one chance to catch this production.

  Giants | Odell Beckham sets team record    Sun Dec 7, 10:46 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. set a team rookie record in Week 14 against the Tennessee Titans with his fourth game with 100 yards receiving this season. His record topped the mark set by former WR Byron Williams in 1983. He finished with 11 catches for 130 yards and a touchdown.

Footballguys view: Beckham could make his line from today look small against the Washington secondary that is prone to major lapses next week.

  Giants | Odell Beckham finds end zone    Sun Dec 7, 02:44 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. caught nine passes for 117 yards and one touchdown in the first half of the team's Week 14 game.

Footballguys view: Beckham has been a top five fantasy wide receiver since Week 7. He'll help a lot of teams to the fantasy semis this week.

  Giants | Week 14 Inactives    Sun Dec 7, 11:42 AM

The New York Giants have declared RB Chris Ogbonnaya, OG Eric Herman, LB Jacquian Williams, OT James Brewer, CB Jayron Hosley, LB Mark Herzlich inactive for Week 14.

Footballguys view: Rashad Jennings is active, but not starting. Neither Giants back is a safe play this week.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings dressing, may be limited    Sun Dec 7, 11:17 AM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) passed enough pre-game tests to play Sunday, Dec. 7. The team will ease him in and see how he responds on third down. His role could expand if he reacts well.

Footballguys view: Basically, neither of Jennings and Andre Williams is a safe play this week. The matchup is good, but even the Titans themselves don't know how the running back touches will shake out this week.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings traveling with team    Sat Dec 6, 12:41 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) will travel with the team for their Week 14 game. He is listed as questionable for the game.

Footballguys view: According to reports, Jennings looked hobbled in practice on Friday. He's been insisting that he's going to play all week, and by traveling with the team it appears that's going to happen. How effective he'll be is another question. He could start the game and re-aggravate the injury early. Consider Jennings more of a RB3/flex play in Week 14 despite the great matchup against a soft Titans defense. If Jennings plays, it negatively impacts the fantasy value of Andre Williams in Week 14 as well.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings questionable    Fri Dec 5, 01:37 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 5, and is questionable for Week 14.

Footballguys view: Jennings is still basically a game-time decision and would seem to be affected by the injury even if he does play. He's a low-end RB2 at best despite the great matchup this week and stat line last week.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings practices    Fri Dec 5, 01:01 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) was on the practice field Friday, Dec. 5.

Footballguys view: Jennings could play if he shows well in practice today and feels good Sunday morning. The matchup is good against the Titans, but no matter who starts the Giants RB will be a risky play. Andre Williams would be that guy if Jennings can't go, but Williams' play this year when Jennings was out inspires little confidence.

  Giants | Work out several players    Fri Dec 5, 02:48 AM

The New York Giants worked out five players this week, including free-agent OLB D.J. Bryant (Ravens), OL Mike Golic Jr. (Notre Dame), RB Dion Lewis (Browns), OL Jordan McCray (Packers) and LB Uani Unga (BYU).

Footballguys view: Lewis looked very dynamic for the Browns in the 2013 preseason, but he has failed to stick on a roster since the Browns released him to open up a spot for Isaiah Crowell at the end of the preseason this year.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings sits    Thu Dec 4, 12:24 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) is not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 4.

Footballguys view: It's not looking good for Jennings this weekend. That means Andre Williams is probably back in the mix. An uninspiring north-south runner, we don't love him, even in the matchup against Tennessee. Williams is no better than a low-end RB2 this weekend.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) is still recovering from an ankle injury he suffered in Week 13.

The New York Giants signed free-agent RB Chris Ogbonnaya (Panthers) to an undisclosed deal Tuesday, Dec. 2.

Footballguys view: Ogbonnaya is a versatile running back/fullback who can do everything. He can block, run and catch passes out of the backfield consistently. This signing raises some questions about the severity of Rashad Jenning's ankle injury. Keep watching the practice reports during the week.
