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

The Giants plan to make Jennings their starter at running back this coming season, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

At this stage, fellow RB David Wilson indicates that he is pain-free, but has yet to receive clearance to play. Assuming Wilson is able to re-enter the mix at some point, we'd expect the Giants to ease him back in, a scenario in which Jennings would head the team's rushing attack (which also includes Peyton Hillis) out of the gate.
The Giants will sign Jennings, the Star-Ledger reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Taking advantage of added opportunities created by Darren McFadden's injury woes, Jennings recorded 733 yards and six touchdowns on 163 rushing attempts, while adding 292 yards on 36 receptions, in 15 games for the Raiders in 2013. Jennings now gives the Giants additional running back depth -- to go along with Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox -- with Andre Brown a free agent and David Wilson bouncing back from a neck injury.

Jennings (concussion) had 23 carries for 91 yards with two touchdowns in Sunday's 56-31 loss to Kansas City. He also caught all three passes thrown his way for 12 yards.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Jennings returned from a one-game absence and was extremely productive for fantasy owners that used him, even in a blowout loss. He was bottled up in the first half, although he had a pair of short touchdowns, but had some longer runs in the second half, while the game was close. Even if Darren McFadden (ankle) is able to return next week, expect Jennings to see most of the work, against an average Chargers rush defense.
Jennings (concussion) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Jennings returns to head the Raiders' Week 15 ground game, with Marcel Reece on hand in a reserve capacity Sunday, along with Taiwan Jones, to a lesser degree, when Jennings needs a breather or in the event of any setbacks.

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.
