While the Rams' front seven is very good, they specialize in pass rush rather than defending the run, so don't be scared off of Giants' running back because of that. Rather, be scared off because we have no idea who will get the touches.

Rashad Jennings handled the majority of the workload for the Giants but did little on the ground; he actually found almost as many yards on one passing play than all his carries. In total Jennings was handed the ball 13 times and managed just 25 yards and a start saving touchdown on a goal line carry from the one yard line. He caught two passes for 24 yards, all of it coming on a well-executed screen play.

Fantasy Impact
Jennings is still clearly the Giants' top RB but the Rams' DL stymied the Giants' OL and didn't allow Jennings, or any backs for that matter, room to run. On a critical situation at third and goal the Liberty University product managed to break through and get a touchdown that salvaged a lackluster performance for any fantasy owners starting him. Jennings' saving grace in a disappointing Giants' offense has been his unchallenged role as the goal line runner. After a Week 8 bye Jennings and the Giants' take on another unrelenting defense in division opponent Philly.

Rashad Jennings participated in full during the Giants' last three practices after a thumb injury had sidelined him from Weeks 3 through 6. He will start Sunday in London against the Rams.

Fantasy Impact
Jennings would appear to be fully back from his injury and should not be limited in any capacity as the Giants' primary runner and pass blocking back. He goes against a Rams' defense that gives up around 17 points per game against Runningbacks; middle of the pack in fantasy scoring. With the Giants' looking to establish a ground game, expect Jennings to get plenty of carries and serve as a solid Flex option.

With Week 1 in the books, fantasy football owners have a better feel for their team. Owners could see how the games unfolded, how players were used, and how defenses looked. While it is a small sample size, it makes the rankings for Week 2 slightly easier than they were for Week 1. With that, players can move up and down.   Read the full story on Athlon Sports
