2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Although he's 29 years old, Jennings has very little tread on his tires, having carried only 387 times in a career largely spent backing up Maurice Jones-Drew or sitting out due to injury. Last year's...

Rashad Jennings: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

As expected, Jennings (knee) is out for Sunday night's game against Philadelphia, the Giants' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Rookie Andre Williams will handle the load for the Giants in what should be a good matchup against the Eagles' lackluster run defense. Jennings' status for next week's game at Dallas remains uncertain, but with the Giants' Week 8 bye on the horizon, we may not see him on the field again until November.
Jennings (knee) rode a stationary bike during Wednesday's practice, but he was unable to run or even jog, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Jennings was knocked out this past Sunday with what was eventually deemed a sprained MCL in his left knee, which is expected to hold him out in Week 6 at Philadelphia. Although the Giants have yet to rule him out, owners should be resigned to the fact that he'll more than likely sit out. In his stead, rookie RB Andre Williams should handle the bulk of the workload.
Jennings is dealing with a sprained MCL, Ralph Vacchiano of the Daily News reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

While there's no timetable presented for Jennings' return, Vacchiano suggests that a good guess would be that the running back could be out through the Giants' Week 8 bye. While that estimate is speculative in nature, it seems a solid bet that Jennings will miss some time, starting with Sunday's game against the Eagles. In such a scenario, rookie Andre Williams would be in line to serve as the Giants' top running back.
Jennings, who will have an MRI on Monday, is initially being diagnosed with a sprained left knee, ESPN reports. "We’ll find out more tomorrow," Jennings said. "We’ll see what the MRI says. But I should be all right, that’s how I feel."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Though Jennings was optimistic following the game, he was unable to rejoin Sunday's contest, after leaving at the beginning of the second half. If the veteran isn't ready for next week's game in Philadelphia, rookie Andre Williams will likely start and get most of the touches, as was the case in the second half Sunday afternoon. Peyton Hillis, the Giants' third-string running back, finished Sunday's game with just two carries and no receptions, compared to 20 and two for Williams.
Jennings will undergo an MRI on his left knee Monday, Newsday's Bob Glauber reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Darren McFadden has missed 13 games the last two years and never played more than 13 in a season, so his primary backup is a good bet to start a game or two. If he can hold off rookie Latavius Murray for that role, Jennings has both the size (6-1, 228) and speed (4.4 40) to make an impact. But after missing all of 2011 with a knee injury and six games last year with a variety of ailments, Jennings is far from a model of health himself. And when he was on the field in 2012 for Jacksonville, he was awful, averaging just 2.8 YPC and fumbling three times on only 101 totes.

2012

Jennings didn’t play last year after suffering a knee injury in the preseason, but though he was placed on IR, he didn’t require surgery and reportedly could have returned in the middle of the year. He should enter 2012 fully healthy. Jennings played so well the year before, when he got 5.5 YPC, Maurice Jones-Drew owners entered 2011 with some concern Jennings would make Jacksonville’s backfield a timeshare. Jones-Drew proved his knee was healthy and is coming off a fantastic year during which he led the NFL in rushing, so Jennings will have to settle for a backup role. But he’s proven to be plenty capable if given an opportunity.

2011

Jennings played well down the stretch last season, finishing with an impressive 5.5 YPC mark, though fantasy owners will most remember him flopping in a favorable matchup at home against the Redskins in Week 16, when he started for an injured Maurice Jones-Drew only to gain 32 yards on 15 carries. Nevertheless, Jennings established himself as Jacksonville’s No. 2 running back, so he’s a safety net for MJD owners and would immediately have fantasy relevance if an injury were to strike. He’s got talent, and the Jaguars’ offensive line has quietly developed into one of the best in the NFL.

2010

Jennings could see a huge opportunity in 2010, as it became painfully aware at the end of the 2009 season that starter Maurice Jones-Drew needs a capable backup to take 5-10 carries per game. Jennings also excels at catching balls out of the backfield, so expect him to have an increased role in the offense this season.

2009

Jennings rushed for 1,500 yards and totaled 19 touchdowns for Liberty last season, and the Jaguars selected him with the 250th pick in the draft. He’s already 24 years old and racked up that big production at a small school, but he’s fast for his size (6-1, 235). Jennings only has to beat out Chauncey Washington to become Jacksonville’s No. 2 back, so he’s the favorite to back up Maurice Jones-Drew, who has never been given a full workload throughout his career.
