Rainey will be the forgotten man on the Giants' depth chart this spring and summer, but his burst, vision, smarts between the tackles, and versatility could make him far more memorable by fall. He's a better inside runner than Shane Vereen, has better vision than Andre Williams, and he can return kicks. Look for Rainey to win a roster spot and find playing time if those ahead of him falter. He's capable of RB2 production for fantasy owners.

Summary

Bobby Rainey faces an uphill battle to make the 53-man roster. Outside of a strong half season in Tampa Bay in 2013 (532 yards and 5 touchdowns in nine games), Rainey has been a third or fourth option. Rainey is likely battling Andre Williams for the final roster spot in the preseason. (May 21)
