Week 1 vs. DEN
Rushing: 4 / 26 / 0
Receiving: 1 / 4 / 0 on 2 targets
Jennings got some change of pace carries to spell MJD, and he did well with them. Jennings displayed a nice burst and decisive running on his touches. Jennings good hands came into play on one reception. The Jags look like they have found a keeper in Jennings.
Week 2 vs. SD
Rushing: 9 / 38 / 0
Receiving: 4 / 50 / 0 on 5 targets
Jennings had a solid game, with 88 total yards from scrimmage on thirteen touches. He actually out-gained starting halfback Maurice Jones-Drew on the ground 38-31 despite three fewer carries. He also picked up 50 yards on four receptions in the passing game, including a short sideline reception on the game's first offensive play (suggesting the team had a plan to make him a part of the attack from very early on, and it wasn't just garbage time points that he compiled). Jennings also contributed with a blocked punt on special teams, demonstrating his all-around talent quite nicely despite the team's losing effort.
Week 3 vs. PHI
Rushing: 3 / 19 / 0
Receiving: 1 / 14 / 0 on 2 targets
Jennings continues to serve as Maurice Jones-Drew's backup and handcuff. Jennings had two targets against the Eagles in Week 3, grabbing one ball for a 14-yard game in the first quarter. Jennings also added three rushes for 19 total yards including a nice 13-yard gain in the fourth quarter. For now his fantasy value is minimal at best.
Week 4 vs. IND
Rushing: 3 / 6 / 0
Receiving: 2 / 9 / 0 on 2 targets
Was called to give MJD a breather here and there. He also was active in the passing game as a check down option for Garrard. Wasn't asked to do a lot but was efficient when called upon.
Week 11 vs. CLE
Rushing: 2 / 3 / 0
Receiving: 1 / 9 / 0 on 1 targets
Jennings has taken his backup job back over from Deji Karim. He had a chance to score the go-ahead TD after MJD was gassed from a 75-yard catch and run, but he couldn't win the race to the pylon.
Week 12 vs. NYG
Rushing: 7 / 53 / 1
Jennings often relieved starter Maurice Jones-Drew, most notably at the end of the first series. After Jones-Drew was involved in five straight plays, Jennings took a carry for 19 yards to the Giants' five yard line and then was given the goal line carry for the score. Jennings had a lot of success on the ground, averaging 7.6 yards a carry as the offensive line did a good job blocking for both Jennings and Jones-Drew. While he may not get much time during a game, Jennings has proven himself to be an effective runner who might have success if Jones-Drew were out.
Week 13 vs. TEN
Rushing: 10 / 44 / 1
Receiving: 2 / 10 / 0 on 2 targets
Jennings did a great job complimenting and spelling Jones Drew throughout the game this week. Jennings was able to find the edge on multiple occasions for some tough yards. He converted a 4th and 1 for a TD, barreling over a tackler on the way. Jennings was able to make some nice adjustments and showed good footwork at the line of scrimmage as well. One of his better showings as a pro.
Week 14 vs. OAK
Rushing: 5 / 109 / 1
Receiving: 0 / 0 / 0 on 1 targets
Jennings got a very light workload but he made every carry count. It almost seemed like the Raiders were content to play softer vs. the run when MJD left the game for Jennings, which if true was a big mistake. Jennings has speed and power any RB would wish for and was a big play waiting to happen, which eventually did happen. He caught defenses napping and punished them by getting to the corner and turning upfield for big gains, including a 74 yard touchdown run. Jennings got to the corner and simply ran by any Raider he came close to, shedding a few tackles on the way and employing a timely stiff arm.
Week 15 vs. IND
Rushing: 3 / 13 / 0
Receiving: 7 / 64 / 0 on 8 targets
Jennings didn't do much in the run game either, though he might have made any brave players starting him in PPR happy, with 6 receptions. Most of that came late in the game though, as the Colts were playing heavy prevent, and the Jags were just trying to get down the field.
Week 16 vs. WAS
Rushing: 15 / 32 / 0
Receiving: 4 / 29 / 0 on 4 targets
Jennings broke a tackle on a strong run to open his day, but was met quickly on most every other carry for the rest of the day. He rarely had any kind of hole to run through, or even more than a beat to look for daylight elsewhere. The backup thrust into duty when Maurice Jones-Drew missed the first game of his career did make some nice gains on receptions, finishing one catch with a stiffarm to gain extra yards, but he let down fantasy owners that took a chance on him because the Jags fell behind early and never got the running game on track.
Week 17 vs. HOU
Rushing: 22 / 108 / 1
Receiving: 4 / 34 / 0 on 7 targets
Jennings started the game against the Texans in Maurice Jones-Drews' absence. He had the best game of his career in combining for 142 total yards and a touchdown. Jennings' best play came on a screen pass from Trent Edwards that he turned up field for a 44 yard gain. His rushing game was equally impressive as he broke the 100 yard barrier without the benefit of a long run (his longest on the day being 16 yards). Jennings had three carries go longer then 10 yards and despite losing yardage a handful of times, he seemed to be a yard or two downfield on most every carry before being wrapped up. Jennings had a touchdown on a carry around the right end where he used his speed to find the endzone untouched to pull the Jaguars within a field goal early in the second quarter. His running style is less balanced then Maurice Jones-Drew and Deji Karim but Jennings does find the hole quickly and appears to trust his blockers completely to create a push at the line of scrimmage. Jennings finished the season with 84 carries for 459 yards and 4 touchdowns.
