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.

Giants will deploy RBBC with or without Wilson in pads.
Legion Report | Aug 22nd
Jennings at the age of 29 will be the New York Giants “workhorse” in 2014. Jennings doesn’t have any tread on his tires as he’s only carried the ball 388 times in his NFL career. What we love most about Jennings is that he plays in the NFC East, so he’ll be playing the Cowboys and Redskins twice. Last season the Dallas Cowboys gave up an average of 23.0 Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs (Ranked last in the NFL against Fantasy RBs.) The Washington Redskins gave up an average of 20.1 Fantasy points per game to opposing RBs (Ranked 4th to last in the NFL against Fantasy RBs.) Their schedule outside of this is fairly tough, so expect some inconsistency out of Jennings this season, although his ability to catch the ball will help temper this as well as their very bad Offensive Line. With this being said the NYG’s are looking to implement a 3-Man RB rotation in order to keep Jennings fresh for the entire season. This will most likely be a rotation with recently cleared David Wilson and 0% agile goal line rookie runner Andre Williams.

In for a big role, but sketchy O-line is a concern, may not get goal-line work.
Fantasy Sports LR | Aug 22nd
David Wilson's good health, coupled with rumours of a 3 back rotation does not bode well for Jennings in 2014.
The Fake Football | Aug 22nd
Jennings will be the lead back for the Giants and will get plenty of receptions and carries. He may lose some goal line work to Andre Williams, but that's the nature of the NFL now. He's still a safe pick this late in the draft.
Breaking Football | Aug 21st
He's 29 and has an injury history, but he's looked pretty good over the past year. I'll take him as a RB2, but not much more.
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru | Aug 21st
He is not a dynasty option at his age, but he should see a number of touches in NY as well as catches making him a nice PPR option. With Wilson out of the picture the only concern is losing goal line carries to Williams.
FFLockerRoom | Aug 20th
Jennings signed a long-term deal with the Giants and could easily be the starting tailback once the season gets underway.
Yahoo! Sports | Aug 19th
Nice yardage and PPR value as lead RB for NYG, but rookie Williams slated to steal goal line work
Fantasy Football Maniax | Aug 19th
Jennings did well in limited action with the Oakland Raiders, rushing 163 times for 733 yards and six rushing touchdowns. He also added 26 receptions for 292 yards. I am less worried about David Wilson zapping his value at this point; Wilson suffered a setback with a neck burner and his career is likely done. Jennings is the back to own in NY, but keep an eye on rookie Andre Williams.
Win My Fantasy League | Aug 9th
Rashad Jennings is in line to be the starter in New York but has to contend with impressive rookie Andre Williams for snaps. Jennings should start the season as the lead back and should be the third down back throughout the season but Williams looks much better as a pure runner and the Giants will transition to Williams once he works on his pass protection.
Rotoprofessor | Aug 2nd
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

Rashad Jennings is the latest back for Eli Manning to lean on. Will he really pan out?
Yahoo! Sports | Jul 18th
There are many things in this world I truly don’t understand. Dudes in flip-flops who lift weights at the gym, the popularity of Chihuahuas, why people find listening to Rush enjoyable and satellite TV commercials that insinuate humans copulate with marionettes top the list. So does the baseless hatred toward Giants RB Rashad Jennings. [Get in the game with Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football] T...
Gridiron Experts | Jun 29th
New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese recently said Jennings can be a "bellcow type of a running back," essentially saying he has the ability to be the team's featured running back.
