Jennings (ankle) is active for Sunday's contest against the Eagles, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Upon the release of Friday's injury report, Jennings was deemed probable for Week 17, while fellow back Andre Williams (shoulder) was handed a questionable designation. The duo achieved active status, but considering Jennings appears to have entered the weekend with greater health, he's the prime candidate to handle the majority of the snaps, against a Philadelphia defense that has given up five rushing scores to running backs in the last two games.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Jennings practiced on a limited basis all week, but he is on track to return to action after missing last week's game. Fellow running back Andre Williams was also limited all week but is listed as questionable, so it appears Jennings is the healthier of the two entering Sunday's game. The Giants will likely split the carries in some fashion if both Jennings and Williams play Sunday, but if the latter is forced to sit out, Jennings would be the favorite to see the bulk of the work out of the Giants' backfield.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Jennings fit in his first reps since aggravating his ankle in Week 15, but even if he's available out of the Giants' backfield Sunday against the Eagles, it's unclear how the snaps will be split with rookie Andre Williams. If Jennings is deemed questionable on Friday's injury report, a full workload is probably out of the question. As a result, owners should monitor the situation as the week rolls along.

The activity marked Jennings' first since aggravating his ankle in Week 15, signaling an imminent return to the field. However, his status should be monitored closely as the week draws to an end to ensure he takes the field Sunday versus the Eagles.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

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 163 carries were his career high, as he took advantage of the opportunity afforded him by Darren McFadden's injuries to turn in his first 1,000-total-yard season. Now that he's the ostensible starter for the Giants, the key is going to be turning in his first fully healthy season – he's never played 16 games. That said, Jennings has never held down a full-season starting gig in his career, and the Giants can't possibly expect to feed him the ball 250-plus times without getting him hurt, so they'll no doubt use David Wilson as well as rookie Andre Williams to spell him fairly frequently. Still, if he can stay on the field, Jennings has the uncommon combination of great size (he's 6-1, 231) and good hands – he's a reliable receiver with the ability to turn upfield. And although he only has so-so speed, Jennings is a grinder who was one of the NFL's best in yards after contact last season.

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.
