Ogbonnaya signed with the Giants on Tuesday.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Ogbonnaya wasn't out of work for long, as he signed with New York just three days after being released by Carolina. Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reported Monday that Giants starter Rashad Jennings (knee) is unlikely to miss time, but Ogbonnaya will provide an insurance policy in Week 14 against the Titans. Ogbonnaya totaled just 50 yards on 14 carries with the Panthers (3.6 YPC) and would likely work behind Andre Williams if Jennings were forced to sit.
Ogbonnaya was waived by the Panthers on Saturday.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

With DeAngelo Williams' foot seemingly at or close to 100 percent following the bye, and Jonathan Stewart and Fozzy Whittaker both healthy as well, the team went ahead and waived Ogbonnaya and added some defensive line depth in Micanor Regis. Ogbonnaya carried the ball 14 times in five games with Carolina this season, the last of which came back in Week 8.
Ogbonnaya is inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

There was no outlook written for Chris Ogbonnaya.

2014

Ogbonnaya posted career-highs with 4.9 YPC on 49 rushing attempts and 48 receptions for 343 yards in 2013. It did not translate into a spot on the Browns' initial 53-man roster, however, though he figures to land an assignment soon enough.

2013

After a fairly productive 2011 in which he combined for 499 yards and one touchdown, Ogbonnaya saw his opportunities decrease drastically last season. His touches went from 96 down to 32. He did remain active in the passing game, however, totaling 24 receptions on the year and that might be the attribute that keeps him employed in Cleveland this season. Brandon Jackson and Dion Lewis are both in town to compete for the third-string role behind Trent Richardson and Montario Hardesty.

2012

Ogbonnaya was signed off of Houstonís practice squad midseason last year and filled in admirably for a banged up Cleveland backfield. He finished tops among their backs with 23 receptions totaling 165 yards, and also rushed for 340 yards and a score at a 4.5 per-carry clip. This year figures to present an uphill battle for Ogbonnaya to make the active roster with the drafting of Trent Richardson and the return of Montario Hardesty and Brandon Jackson from injury.

2011

Ogbonnaya is a former wideout, who converted to running back at the University of Texas, and has very little mileage on him (two games played in two years). He finished up the 2010 season on the Texans' practice squad and was looking to elevate one level entering the 2011 training camp season. He entered training camp fifth on the depth chart, but didn't make the final cut as Houston decided to keep veteran Steve Slaton, though he was re-signed to Houston's practice squad.

2010

Ogbannaya is currently penciled in as the club's No. 3 running back behind Kenneth Darby and Steven Jackson. The second year player out of Texas could push Darby for the No. 2 role but it's also no secret that the team wants to acquire a more legit No. 2 back so by the time the regular season rolls around neither of the above scenarios may hold true.

2009

Ogbonnaya is another wildcard entering camp in 2009. He did flash some potential at Texas but the rookie's true colors probably won't be revealed until well into the preseason. We expect him to compete for the No. 3 RB role and if he does the little things, like blocking and pass catching well, he'll likely win a roster spot heading into the regular season.
