Summary

The New York Giants are looking to reinvigorate a moribund offense that could neither run the ball nor keep it out of the opposing defenses' hands. With David Wilson's health concerns and Andre Brown signing with Houston, GM Jerry Reese moved quickly to sign Rashad Jennings to a four-year, $10-million deal with $3 million guaranteed. The question is whether Jennings is up to the challenge of being a feature back. Last year Jennings started 8 games for the Oakland Raiders and played well, averaging 4.5 yards per rush and scoring 6 rushing touchdowns. He showed more power, instinct and vision than his more heralded teammate Darren McFadden. Yet, Jennings is 29 years old this season and was a complete non-factor in four seasons in Jacksonville. Jennings should be on the field a lot in 2014, but don't get overzealous in your expectations -- particularly with rookie Andre Williams finding an immediate role as the goal-line back. He's a high upside fantasy RB2 at best, but more likely rates as a fantasy RB3. (August 4)
