With 432 rushing yards during the final four weeks of the season, it is a mystery why he going so late in fantasy drafts. Jennings could be an extremely useful asset if he keeps getting the carries he saw late in the season. Granted, he will have to hold off Perkins and Vareen, but for the time being, he has the job on lockdown.

Rashad Jennings ran for a horrible -1 yard on six carries in the Giants' third pre-season game on Saturday night. Jennings did add 14 yards on two receptions to put his net yardage total for the game against the Jets in positive territory.

Fantasy Impact: In Jennings' defense, the Giants' first team offense did absolutely nothing against the Jets' defense on Saturday. The Giants' offensive line looked totally overmatched and it marked the second pre-season game in a row that the Giants' first team offense looked totally anemic. There is no doubt that Jennings sits atop the Giants' RB depth chart, but the OL may be a cause for concern throughout the season. As such, Jennings owners may need to temper expectations regarding fantasy output, despite his status as the Giants' RB1. For fantasy purposes, Jennings projects as a low-end RB2.

Jennings should start the 2016 season as the lead back for the Giants. They split up running back touches last season between four running backs, and who knows what they will do this year, but Jennings should get the majority

Not an exciting option but he remains the lead back until further notice

The 31 year old is going to carry the load this year as the Giants move away from a dreadfully ineffective RBBC.
