  Giants | Rashad Jennings expected back in Week 4    Sun Sep 25, 08:36 PM

Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) said Sunday, Sept. 25, that he understood head coach Ben McAdoo's decision to keep him out. He said his thumb feels better and he is hopeful of returning in Week 4.

Footballguys view: Shane Vereen and Orleans Darkwa split the work in the backfield and both scored against Washington this week. Next week brings the stout Vikings defense, so we will probably stay away from the Giants backfield no matter who starts.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings unlikely to play    Sun Sep 25, 09:14 AM

Contrary to a previous report, New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) is not expected to be active for Week 3's game against the Washington Redskins. RB Shane Vereen is expected to see the bulk of the snaps in his place.

Footballguys view: Orleans Darkwa is Jennings backup between the tackles and he could get goal line work. Washington is a favorable rushing matchup, so Vereen moves into RB2 consideration, especially in PPR leagues.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings likely to play Week 3    Sat Sep 24, 12:18 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (hand) is continuing to work through his sprained left thumb and done enough to make offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan believe he'll be able to play through the injury in Week 3 versus the Washington Redskins.

Footballguys view: Jennings should play..and he should be the lead back for the Giants. However, fantasy owners should consider him no more than a RB3/flex option against Washington.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings listed as questionable    Fri Sep 23, 03:36 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) is being listed as questionable for the team's Week 3 game Sunday, September 26, against the Washington Redskins.

Footballguys view: Jennings should play in a good matchup, but his left thumb injury could affect his usage as a receiver, and the Giants went to Shane Vereen over Jennings in the red zone last week. Even in a good matchup, Jennings is just a what the heck flex against Washington this week.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings limited     Thu Sep 22, 04:44 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Footballguys view: Jennings also lost red zone carries to Shane Vereen and isn't used much in the passing game right now--so we're not bullish on him even healthy. He's a borderline RB3/RB4, depending on how the injury hampers him.

  Giants | Odell Beckham to have Norman shadow    Wed Sep 21, 12:53 PM

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. will be shadowed by Washington Redskins CB Josh Norman, except in the slot, in Week 3.

Footballguys view: This matchup will be one to watch in Week 3. The two have a history as last year in Week 14, Norman (then with the Panthers) frustrated Beckham and the superstar WR was flagged three times for unnecessary roughness. The report indicates that Norman will shadow Beckham everywhere but the slot.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings on track for Week 3    Tue Sep 20, 04:14 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) had a cast on his right thumb Tuesday, Sept. 20, but he said it will be removed before the Week 3 game against the Washington Redskins Sunday, Sept. 25. Jennings is confident he will play Sunday, and he also noted he could play with the cast on, if needed.

Footballguys view: Jennings is confident, but fantasy owners should not be confident in him. The team is going to split time between Jennings and Shane Vereen -- plus the offense is built more on the passing game. Both Jennings and Vereen are RB3/flex options (and not exciting ones at that) for fantasy owners.

  Giants | Two Giants nursing injuries     Mon Sep 19, 07:03 PM

New York Giants OT Marshall Newhouse (calf) suffered a calf injury in Week 2 and left the locker room limping in a walking boot. OG Bobby Hart and OT William Beatty would likely be the favorites to take over for Newhouse if Newhouse can't play. S Mykkele Thompson (knee) will miss a few weeks with a knee injury.

  Giants | Rashad Jennings should play    Mon Sep 19, 06:58 PM

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (hand) should be on the field in some capacity in Week 3, according to ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan.

Footballguys view: Jennings may be out there, but fantasy owners can find better options. The Giants are at home against a Washington defense that is soft against the run. Jennings is splitting time with Shane Vereen, and we can't recommend either more than 'what the heck' flex-level plays.

Footballguys view: We want to see Cruz salsa-dancing in the end zone once again. However, fantasy owners should only consider Cruz as a WR8 against Dallas. That means nobody will be starting him.
