Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs ATL (10 / 55 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)

Rashad Jennings was forced to leave this game halfway through it due to an injury to his MCL. Jennings did manage 10 carries and 2 catches before leaving however before he gave the lead role to teammate Williams. Jennings had a strong inside run play early in the game, finding a crease in the defense before pushing the pile forward after contact for extra yards. Jennings has an excellent burst after he discovers a gap in the defense and has excellent vision to see the gaps in the defense. He showed good patience on his carries against the Falcons and never hurried to rush into a gap before his offensive line had time to set up any blocks. Jennings got a lot of his rushing yards on two impressive carries outside to the left. Jennings was aided by strong sustained blocks from his line, waited for the best moment and accelerated down the sideline before picking up a big chunk of yards. Jennings ran a similar play seconds later for another big gain. Jennings left shortly after however due to the sprain injury on his MCL. The Giants had a sharp and efficient passing game on Sunday, which helped Jennings find holes in a defensive that was sometimes caught out of position. Jennings owes a lot of his production to his team however, as the offensive line is playing well and QB Manning keeps the defense honest. Teammate Williams should be able to hold down the spot well until his return later in the season.

Giants | Rashad Jennings on track for Week 9 (Mon Oct 20, 03:46 PM) - New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) said he's on schedule and hopes to play after the team's bye this week. He'll start running this week.

Our View: Good news for the Giants here. Jennings is a fine all-purpose back who can give the team a much-needed shot in the arm.

Giants | Week 7 Inactives (Sun Oct 19, 02:59 PM) - The New York Giants have declared WR Corey Washington, OG Adam Snyder, DT Kerry Wynn, OT James Brewer, OT Brandon Mosley, DL Jay Bromley, RB Rashad Jennings inactive for Week 7.

Our View: Washington was a UDFA sensation in training camp, and he could play a larger role in the red zone and as the biggest receiver on the roster, but for now he'll be a healthy scratch.

Giants | Rashad Jennings to start running (Sat Oct 18, 08:47 AM) - New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) intends to start running next week in a pool and on a machine that will alleviate pressure. Jennings is hoping to return in Week 9.

Our View: Great news for the Giants as the offense was really limited last week without him and might be today. Andre Williams is a solid back but not much of a pass catcher or blocker--whereas Jennings can do both. You should have Jennings back after the team's Week 8 bye. We see Williams as a low-end RB2 with some upside in TD-premium leagues.

Giants | Rashad Jennings has target date (Thu Oct 16, 02:40 PM) - New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) said he hopes to be able to play in the team's Week 9 game. Jennings said he is no longer wearing his knee brace every day and is only wearing it when he is sleeping.

Our View: The Giants need him because having to rely on Andre Williams makes the offense too one-dimensional. Williams is a middling RB2 based on expected carries but he gets pulled on pass downs, so his upside is limited.

Giants | Rashad Jennings hopes to return after bye (Wed Oct 15, 04:16 PM) - New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) has been working out and feels better, and he's hoping he can return after the team's Week 8 bye. 'Getting better every day,' Jennings said. 'Just working out in the gym, getting lost in my music and doing everything I need to do so that when I get back, I'll be back up to speed where I was.' He plans to start running this week.

Our View: This was the plan when the injury first hit. Jennings is the Giants best back, and he'll get his starting job back upon his return. Rookie Andre Williams could get a few short-yardage or goal-line carries as a backup behind Jennings.
