Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 5 vs GB (5 / 22 / 0 rush, 6 / 6 / 52 / 0 rec)

Bobby Rainey was a lone brightspot apart from Beckham on Sunday night for the Giants. The young back got his hands on the ball in a variety of ways and has massive potential as a third/passing down situation player for this team. He was the leading rusher, despite not getting the most carries and second leading receiver in terms of yards which shows his versatility. Rainey was primarily used as a check down option for Manning out of the backfield. He showed he has the hands to consistently secure the ball in tight situations and the quickness to get open against linebackers. Rainey had an excellent run in the second half which Giants fans must have been excited to see. He made a man miss as he caught a pass near the line of scrimmage on the outside and then stiff armed another defender for a big first down. This showed power and determination that will aid him going forward and look good on tape for the Giants coaches. Rainey also caught several screen passes which he set up well and looked confident doing. He can be played in deep PPR leagues but owners should have very tempered expectations with the struggles seen in this offense lately.

2016 Week 4 vs MIN (4 / 22 / 0 rush, 9 / 7 / 43 / 0 rec)

Bobby Rainey got the second most touches as a Giant running back behind Darkwa and had a solid outing. Rainey started off his day evading a potential tackler on the outside and turning a likely negative play into a positive gain on the ground. Rainey showed explosion and quickness as he made several defenders miss at the line and had the speed to exploit any gaps in the defense. Rainey was used a lot on dive plays up the middle but the Giants struggled in this regard as they are not well equipped to be in short yardage situations. Rainey picked up a few first downs through the air also, showing reliable hands. He has the quickness to get open vs slower footed linebackers in coverage. Regardless, Rainey is a desperation play in PPR leagues if Jennings remains out and almost worthless when Jennings returns as the Giants backfield is crowded.
