Week 9: vs Indianapolis Colts

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Rashad Jennings just resumed running on Monday, October 28, which likely means we'll see a lot of the chugging Andre Williams again on Monday Night Football. He's plowed to 18/51/0 rushing with three targets for zero receptions at Dallas and 17/59/0 rushing at Philadelphia over the past two games during his time as the lead Giants' back. Let's just say he has under-performed expectations so far and leave it at that. The Colts' rush D didn't allow a rushing TD last week (unlike their pass D, which gave up six), holding the Steelers to 32/117/0 on the ground. Two weeks back, the Bengals had 12/32/0 rushing at Indianapolis - the defensive front has been stout of late. To date Indianapolis is the ninth-ranked rush D in the NFL averaging 99.2 yards given up per game, with seven rushing scores surrendered. This looks like a bad week to look for much production from the sputtering Williams.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs PHI (5 / 24 / 0 rush, 5 / 3 / 28 / 0 rec)

Peyton Hillis was given the ball only to spell teammate Williams and didn't have any more success on the ground. The Giants running back depth is poor currently and Hillis' is not going to bring a spark or improve their rushing attack at this stage in his career. He was able to pick up some first downs late in the second half but the game was out of reach at that point and the Eagles were not playing as tough. Hillis will continue to backup Williams on the ground but is nowhere close to a fantasy startable back.

2014 Week 7 vs DAL (6 / 29 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

Hillis saw work as the passing down and hurry-up offense back over the reception-deficient Andre Williams. None of Hillis' touches came in meaningful situations and he even threw in a dropped pass on a dump-off target for good measure. Hillis is a contributor only until the superior Rashad Jennings is back in the lineup.
