#13 vs. HOU

Jennings ran for 64 yards on 18 carries and added 45 yards on 4 receptions against the Cardinals in Week 2.

Fantasy Impact: Despite the 109 total yards, Jennings had a critical fumble at the Arizona-14 in the 4th quarter when the Giants were driving to tie or take the lead. While Jennings may be in Tom Coughlin's doghouse due to the fumble, it is unlikely he would lose any playing time since he has been one of the only bright spots on the Giants' offense. Jennings is a solid WR2/Flex play for Week 3 at home against Houston.

In his first game for the Giants, Rashad Jennings had a total of 96 yards and a TD. He had 16 carries for 46 yards, including a 1 yard score, and three receptions for 50 yards.

Fantasy Impact: The Giants fell far behind early in the game, but Jennings was able to get 16 carries compared to only 5 for rookie Andre Williams. He got the goal line carries and was able to plunge from the one yard line. Jennings looks to be the clear workhorse for the Giants and he will be used often with the poor play of Eli Manning.

Fantasy Impact: Even behind a shaky offensive line and bad quarterback play, Jennings ran well on limited touches. Regardless of these issues, it looks like Jennings is in for a nice RB2 season with significant upside in PPR leagues.

In addition to his 67 yards on the ground, Jennings also had 1 catch for 7 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Despite another poor showing by the Giants' starting offense (until the last two minutes of the first half), Jennings was one of the few bright spots last evening. Even with a potentially suspect Giants OL, Jennings looks like a solid RB2 - particularly in PPR leagues since he should see a fair number of passes.

Fantasy Impact: Jennings believes that Manning's ability to audible at the line with help him be successful. He mentioned he was used to seeing 8 or 9 defenders in the box, because his past offenses (Jax, Oak) called obvious run plays. He said, "I was like ‘What?’ Being a bruiser, getting those extra yards, understanding where the soft spots are going to be, that’s who I am." Jennings expects to have a bigger season than last, and should catch a nice amount of passes.

Rashad Jennings had a solid game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Giants 20-16 preseason victory. Jennings burned the Steelers defense for a 73-yard score on the Giants' second possession. He finished the game with five carries for 85 yards and a score. Other than the 73 yard gash, he wasn't able to find much space going four carries for 12 yards.

Fantasy Impact: If Jennings could stay healthy the entire season, he will remain the number one option in New York and has a chance to reach the 1000 yard mark for the first time in his career.

Jennings rushed 7 times for 23 yards against Buffalo in Sunday's Hall of Fame game. However, rookie Andre Williams got the goal line work.

Fantasy Impact: With Wilson now on I.R. for the season, this opens up the passing game for Jennings. He caught 3 passes for 20 yards in limited action on Sunday. If he's not going to get the goal line carries, racking up receptions will help Rashad Jennings live up to his current 5th Round ADP.

He's at least been versatile and is at home, so he could get a good amount of work.

The Texans are a pedestrian 18th against fantasy running backs and they will need to run Jennings to prevent Eli Manning from turning the ball over too many times.

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) Generally “older” running backs are not recommended, with 30-years old viewed as the downside of their careers.  The Giants’ newly signed Rashad Jennings is right on the border, at 29-years old, but he also doesn’t have the same mileage
