Summary

Betting on 31-year old running backs is risky business. Betting on 31-year old runners that are splitting time with a host of other players in an offense that is increasingly focused on the passing game is downright ill advised. Jennings deserves credit for setting career highs in 2015, which was as much a byproduct of his staying healthy for the first time in his seven seasons as it was about an increased role. In fact, Jennings carried the ball 12.7 per game in 2015 versus 15.2 in 2014. The Giants backfield is a mess entering the preseason, and it's unclear whether we'll get answers about roles and touches until the real season gets underway. For now we have to assume Jennings is the favorite to lead the team in carries, but his 10-12 totes per game aren't going to be enough to make him a starting caliber fantasy player. (May 21)
