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 uncertain 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 now that David Wilson has been cleared for full participation in training camp. He's a high upside fantasy RB2 at best, but more likely rates as a fantasy RB3. (July 21)

Giants | Rashad Jennings listed as starter (Thu Jul 24, 01:26 PM) - New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is listed as the team's starting running back on the first unofficial depth chart of training camp.

Our View: We are all watching very closely to see if training camp and the preseason give clues to how the Giants will divvy up carries between Jennings, the freshly cleared David Wilson, and rookie fourth-round pick Andre Williams. Our Andrew Garda is covering Giants training camp and will convey his thoughts later this summer.

Giants | Could use three-man rotation at RB (Wed Jul 23, 08:18 AM) - New York Giants RBs Rashad Jennings, David Wilson and Andre Williams could be used in a three-man rotation this season to keep Jennings fresh.

Our View: Fantasy owners need to keep an eye on this battle in camp. Jennings should be the lead back, and he's a fine runner and receiver out of the backfield. Wilson could be the team's change-of-pace back because of his speed and explosiveness. Williams could be the team's banger in short-yardage and goal line situations.

Giants | Rashad Jennings still the lead back (Mon Jul 21, 11:00 AM) - New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is still considered the lead running back, despite RB David Wilson's (neck) clearance for contact.

Our View: That's the best move for the Giants. Wilson is a talented back, but there's no need to rush him back. He'll have to first compete as a reserve behind Jennings in training camp. We like Jennings value as a low-end RB2 with upside.

Giants | David Wilson says he's good to go (Mon Jul 21, 10:29 AM) - New York Giants RB David Wilson (neck) said that he has been cleared for everything.

Our View: Talent has never been a question mark for Wilson. During his final season at Virginia Tech, Wilson led the NCAA in yards after contact. He's fast, quick and runs bigger than his size. This neck injury has nearly derailed his pro career, but we'll see if he can get things back on track this year.
