New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings could have a veteran running back to complement or compete with him next season. The team could possibly add a change-of-pace back and a run-blocking offensive lineman in the offseason.
Huddle Up: Isn't Andre Williams already a complement/competition? Jennings was more than solid when healthy last year; seems counter-productive to bring in another veteran when the Giants already have two decent backs... unless the plan is to phase Jennings out? It's a situation fantasy owners will need to keep an eye on this offseason.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 26, and is probable for Week 17.
Huddle Up: It looks like Jennings will return after what's essentially been a two-game absence, making the Giants' RB situation a bit of a fantasy mess with rookie Andre Williams (shoulder) also questionable. And don't forget about Orleans Darkwa, who had six touches for 38 yards and a TD in Week 16.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 24.
Huddle Up: Good sign to see Jennings on the field this early in the week after the RB has essentially missed the last two games, but he'd be a risky fantasy start coming off the idle time.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) did not practice Friday, Dec. 19, and will not play in the team's Week 16 game.
Huddle Up: The writing was definitely on the wall, and at least Jennings' owners get plenty of notice so they can get another option in place. Meanwhile, it's certainly a boost for those owning Andre Williams as the rookie will shoulder the bulk of the load Sunday in St. Louis.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) is not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: You're just not going to be able to trust Jennings, who started last week and then departed with a first-quarter ankle injury. Rookie Andre Williams, though, certainly moves up on the RB list if Jennings can't go Sunday in St. Louis.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings' (ankle) status for Week 16 is uncertain, because the severity of the injury is not known, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. 'He did have a reoccurrence of the ankle and was not able to go back in the game,' Coughlin said. 'Whether or not we are all the way back to Square 1, I don't know yet. I don't have anything on that today yet.'
Huddle Up: Fantasy GMs might be best served putting Jennings on the back-burner for the final two weeks as there's simply too much uncertainty to deal with -- especially in the championship rounds.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) left the Week 15 game against the Washington Redskins after aggravating his ankle injury.
Huddle Up: Jennings re-injured his ankle on the first carry of the game. With just two games left and the Giants out of the playoff hunt, there's a good chance Jennings is done for the season. Andre Williams will be the lead back next week against the Rams if Jennings is out. It's a tough matchup but Williams is a RB2/3.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) will travel with the team for their Week 14 game. He is listed as questionable for the game.
Huddle Up: Jennings is a game-time decision but it's looking like he'll suit up against the Titans last ranked rush defense. He won't be 100 percent , however, making Andre Williams a flex play option as well.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) was on the practice field Friday, Dec. 5. He is listed as questionable on the injury report.
Huddle Up: It's something that likely needed to happen for Jennings to have a shot at playing Sunday, but it's still likely going to come down to a game-time decision. Keep monitoring reports and check in with the Huddle's Game-Day Inactives, Injury & Weather Report before kickoff Sunday.

Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (ankle) said Sunday, Nov. 30, that he couldn't re-enter the Week 13 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars because he couldn't press down on his injured ankle. However, he said he is not worried about missing time.
Huddle Up: Jennings will be further evaluated on Monday. If he misses any time, Andre Williams will step back in as the Giants starter. Williams should be targeted on the waiver wire this week if he's still available in your league.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) appears to be on track to play in Week 11, according to sources.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 7, and is doubtful for Week 10.
Huddle Up: While Jennings was able to show a little more in practice this week, Week 11 has always been a much more realistic return date. In the meantime, it'll be another week of Andre Williams and Peyton Hillis.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) did not rule out playing in the team's Week 10 game. 'There's always a chance,' Jennings said.
Huddle Up: Jennings, who sat out Wednesday's practice, handled scout-team reps Thursday, and despite his optimistic view, a Week 11 return remains a much more likely scenario.
Posted: 11/5/2014 4:23pm et
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) will not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 5.
Huddle Up: The MCL sprain has proven trickier than first thought as Jennings will have missed more than a month if he's unable to play Sunday in Seattle. In the meantime, rookie Andre Williams will continue to start, but he's done little with the opportunity.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) has been ruled out of the Week 9 game against the Colts but said he is on track in terms of his rehab. Still, there is no timetable for his return. Jennings said he has not suffered any setbacks but is not ready to play yet.
Huddle Up: Disappointing news for Jennings' fantasy owners who were hoping to see the productive back return after the Giants' bye last week, but it looks like the wait will extend past a month.
Posted: 10/28/2014 11:27am et
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) is not ready to go for Week 9, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Jennings said he is not able to make cuts yet and has been limited to linear running.

Huddle Up: Jennings has been shooting for a Week 9 return, but he's obviously going to have to show some significant strides in practice this week. We'll revisit the situation when the Giants' begin practice Wednesday.
Posted: 10/18/2014 2:01pm et
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) intends to start running next week in a pool and on a machine that will alleviate pressure. Jennings is hoping to return in Week 9.
Huddle Up: Andre Williams will continue to see the bulk of the carries while Jennings is out. Williams is a strong flex play option this week against Dallas even though he didn't do much in last week's blowout loss to Philadelphia.
Posted: 10/6/2014 4:08pm et
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (knee) was seen with a limp and wearing a brace on his left knee.
Huddle Up: Jennings isn't expected to play in Week 6. Andre Williams will be the Giants feature back against the Eagles. He's a must add this week in all formats.
Posted: 9/24/2014 8:40pm et
The New York Giants could use RB Andre Williams more in Week 4 if the team gets an early lead and has to rely on the running game, according to Dan Graziano of ESPN New York. The team is monitoring RB Rashad Jennings after he carried the ball 34 times in Week 3, and believe he will be at full strength, but with the short week the team could rely on Williams a bit more.
Huddle Up: The Giants win one game and now they're talking about getting big leads and rotating running backs? Don't buy it. Jennings will still see a majority of the touches. He's a high-end RB2 this week against Washington.
Posted: 8/19/2014 5:41pm et
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is expected to get the bulk of the carries in Week 1, according to Dan Graziano.
Huddle Up: Rookie Andre Williams is the only real threat to steal touches at the moment, leaving Jennings as a decent value at his current ADP of 26th among RBs.
Posted: 8/10/2014 4:32pm et
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings had five carries for 85 yards in the team's second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 9, including a 73-yard touchdown run.
Huddle Up: The former Jag and Raider showed off some speed some thought he was lacking on the 73-yard scoring sprint, and he's got a vise-grip on the Giants' starting gig at this point. In short, he's a decent bargain if you can still get him at his current seventh/eighth-round ADP.

New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is listed as the team's starting running back on the first unofficial depth chart of training camp.
Huddle Up: No surprise here, but just know the looking-healthy David Wilson, Peyton Hillis and fourth-round pick Andre Williams will all be angling for a share of the action.
Posted: 7/23/2014 2:25pm et
New York Giants RBs Rashad Jennings, David Wilson and Andre Williams could be used in a three-man rotation this season to keep Jennings fresh.
Huddle Up: A three-man rotation would scuttle the fantasy value of all backs involved, though Williams is a rookie and Wilson is both injury- and fumble-prone so their spots in the rotation are hardly secure. Jennings remains the safest bet, though it seems the Giants are bent on finding ways to take touches away from him. It's worth noting that Williams has been working as the Giants' goal-line back early in camp.
Posted: 7/21/2014 11:04pm et
New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is still considered the lead running back, despite RB David Wilson's (neck) clearance for contact.
Huddle Up: Jennings is more what Tom Coughlin is seeking in a feature back, as despite the Giants' new offense he'll still push them to run between the tackles. And, of course, Jennings hasn't been plagued with a raging case of fumblitis.
