Summary

Expectations for Rashad Jennings were unrealistic in his first year in New York. Giants fans desperate for a fix to the ailing ground game projected Jennings as something he wasn't; an every down starter. That's not to say Jennings isn't talented, but his injury history precludes a workhorse role. Jennings missed five games and was limited in several others, culminating in a 865-yard, 4 TD season. At 30 years old, Jennings is better suited to a complementary role. Jennings will contend with not only Andre Williams but free agent Shane Vereen. Expect a three-headed monster to emerge, thereby capping their fantasy upside. (August 16)

Latest News

Giants | Andre Williams could move up (Tue Aug 25, 12:20 PM) - New York Giants RB Andre Williams could overtake RB Rashad Jennings as the lead back sometime this season, maybe even to open the season. Williams has worked on his receiving game this offseason and studied Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's patience with the ball.

Our View: We're not sold on the idea of Williams taking over for Jennings. The Giants want to use a fast-paced offense, and Williams just isn't that type of back. He's a two-down banger who is limited as a receiver. We like Jennings and Shane Vereen a lot more than Williams in this backfield.
