    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings was released Monday, Feb. 13. Jennings would have counted over $3 million against the salary cap. The release will save the Giants $2.5 million.

    Huddle Up: The Paul Perkins era can now officially commence. He figures to be the primary running back with Shane Vereen maintaining his pass-catching role, although Perkins is a capable receiver, too. Players in Perkins' situation could be over drafted, though, so don't go bananas just because of the released of Jennings.

  • Posted: 2/9/2017 4:40pm ET

    The New York Giants may be moving on from RB Rashad Jennings, according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com.

    Huddle Up: Even though Jennings is signed through 2017, this move wouldn't be all that surprising, considering he's on the verge of turning 32 years old and is coming off one of the worst seasons of his career in which he averaged a measly 3.3 yards per carry. Plus, the Giants arguably have their running back of the future in Paul Perkins. Either way, Jennings is trending down in a big way no matter who he plays for.

  • Posted: 1/31/2017 6:29am ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings said he expects to return to the team in 2017. Jennings has one year left on his deal, and his release would save the club $2.5 million.

    Huddle Up: Jennings was phased out at times down the stretch with the emergence of Paul Perkins, and the team could bring in more competition for the committee. Jennings, 32 in March, has little upside outside of a backup role on a fantasy team.

  • Posted: 12/4/2016 11:00pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings rushed six times for just 19 yards in the Week 13 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He added six catches for 34 yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Jennings has been underwhelming this season and remains nothing more than a RB3. If rookie Paul Perkins could catch out of the backfield, he would likely surpass Jennings on the depth chart.

  • Posted: 11/27/2016 8:36pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings rushed 15 times for 55 yards in the Week 12 game against the Cleveland Browns. He also added two receptions for four yards on his two targets.

    Huddle Up: Jennings has yet to run for 100 yards this season, and he is averaging just 3.4 yards per carry while rushing for just two scores. He should be treated as more of a flex fantasy option heading into Week 13.

  • Posted: 11/14/2016 9:38pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings rushed 15 times for 87 yards in the Week 10 game against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, Nov. 14. He also added three catches for 22 yards on six targets.

    Huddle Up: Jennings posted season highs in rushing yardage and total yards from scrimmage. Still, he has just one touchdown through six games and is more of a flex fantasy play in deeper leagues at this point.

  • Posted: 11/6/2016 5:22pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings ran 11 times for 26 yards in the Week 9 game against the Philadelphia Eagles, and he added three receptions for 13 yards on his three targets.

    Huddle Up: Jennings split carries and touches right down the middle with rookie Paul Perkins, who had 11 carries and three catches for a total of 47 yards. Neither separated their self from the other, so you can expect another split into Week 10. That's maddening for fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 10/21/2016 4:14pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 21, and is not on the injury report for Week 7. The Giants did not practice Friday, so this is an estimation.

    Huddle Up: Jennings was involved in the running and passing game last week but posted only 35 total yards. He likely will see a similar workload in Week 7 and could be a flex options in some leagues.

  • Posted: 10/21/2016 7:16am ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was listed as probable for Week 7 by the team Friday, Oct. 21.

    Huddle Up: Jennings is averaging 2.9 yards per carry and has just seven catches for 36 yards. He's an underwhelming flex option against the Los Angeles Rams.

  • Posted: 10/20/2016 1:21pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) put in a full practice Thursday, Oct. 20.

    Huddle Up: Jennings has been a disappointment even when he's been healthy this year, but he should still be the Giants' primary running back in Week 7. The Los Angeles Rams have been mediocre against the run in 2016, but Jennings isn't more than a low-end RB2 or flex for this week.

  • Posted: 10/19/2016 12:35pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Jennings was not much of a factor in his first game back from his injury but should receive more touches in Week 7. He can be a No. 2 running back or a flex option this week even though he will be facing a solid Los Angeles Rams defense.

  • Posted: 10/16/2016 4:06pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was active in Week 6 game against the Baltimore Ravens, but he managed just nine rushes for 15 yards. He also had four receptions for 20 yards.

    Huddle Up: Jennings might have been dealing with a little bit of rust, but the Giants have struggled to run the ball for most of the season anyway. He'll look to get it going against the Rams in London in Week 7, but for now he isn't worth using in most fantasy leagues until he gets untracked.

  • Posted: 10/16/2016 9:17am ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) is officially active for the team's Week 6 game.

    Huddle Up: Jennings probably will receive most of the carries during the game, but it is not known if his thumb will affect his play. He could be considered a flex option in some fantasy leagues but could be benched if owners have better options.

  • Posted: 10/14/2016 12:21pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) is listed as questionable for Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens but told reporters Thursday, Oct. 13, that 'we're rocking this week' after missing the last three games.

    Huddle Up: Jennings' return will make Orleans Darkwa drop-worthy in most leagues, but the former is at best a low-upside flex this week against the Ravens' stout run defense. For the most part, the Giants' offense in general has been awful for much of the past three weeks, so look elsewhere for higher-upside options until New York shows some signs of life.

  • Posted: 10/14/2016 11:48am ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) is being listed as questionable for the team's Week 6 game Sunday, Oct. 16, against the Baltimore Ravens. He was able to get in a limited practice for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 14.

    Huddle Up: Although he's considered questionable to suit up, it's looking more likely than not that the former Jacksonville Jaguar will be able to play in Sunday's contest. Going up against a strong run defense, however, owners might want to use some caution over Jennings, since he may be playing at less than 100 percent. His return would also make it hard to start the likes of Orleans Darkwa and Bobby Rainey.

  • Posted: 10/13/2016 12:43pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 13.

    Huddle Up: Jennings appears to be on track to play in Week 6, but his role in that game is uncertain at this point. He could be considered a flex option if he is active for the game, but owners could also keep him on the bench if they have better options.

  • Posted: 10/13/2016 11:19am ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) said he expects to play against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Jennings would play for the first time in several weeks if he is active for the team's Week 6 game. He has rushed for 102 yards in two games and probably will receive a majority of the carries when he returns. Jennings can be considered a flex option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 10/12/2016 12:05pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Jennings has missed the last several games even though he has been able to do some things during practice, so owners need to check on his status later in the week. Jennings should be the starting running back when he returns to the lineup and could be a No. 2 running back in some leagues.

  • Posted: 10/9/2016 7:20am ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) is not expected to play in Week 5's game against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Jennings had been listed as questionable on the injury report and was a limited participant in practice throughout the week. RB Orleans Darkwa is expected to serve as the starter and warrants consideration as a flex option in deeper leagues, while RB Bobby Rainey could be useful in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 10/7/2016 1:12pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited again at practice Friday, Oct. 7.

    Huddle Up: After being limited in practice all week, Jennings' status appears to be very much up in the air again. If he sits out, it'll be hard to lean on New York's running back situation, which figures to feature the likes of Orleans Darkwa, Bobby Rainey and Paul Perkins.

  • Posted: 10/6/2016 1:10pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 6.

    Huddle Up: Jennings' status may be iffy leading up to kickoff, so his status will really need to be monitored this weekend. If he can't suit up again then Orleans Darkwa would start again, with Bobby Rainey in the pass-catching role. Rainey is a PPR sleeper, but the Green Bay Packers have been stingy against the run this season. Darkwa is a deep flex play at best.

  • Posted: 10/5/2016 2:45pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 5.

    Huddle Up: Jennings was not able to play in the last game because of the injury, but it appears he may be able to play in Week 5. He likely would be limited if he is active for the game but could still be a No. 2 running back in leagues.

  • Posted: 10/3/2016 9:13am ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) has been ruled out Week 4 versus the Minnesota Vikings.

    Huddle Up: As expected. Orleans Darkwa and Bobby Rainey are expected to replace the aging veteran, with the former expected to serve as the lead back in a difficult matchup. Outside of owners trying to replace Jennings or in a bit of a bind at the running back position, it is hard to justify starting either Darkwa or Rainey this week.

  • Posted: 10/1/2016 12:09pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited during practice Saturday, Oct. 1, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Jennings may be a game-time decision for the game but will be a risky option for owners since he will be playing on Monday Night Football. Owners probably should look for other options to use in their lineups this week.

  • Posted: 9/30/2016 1:37pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 30.

    Huddle Up: Jennings in not expected to play in Week 4, but owners should continue to monitor the situation. He would be a risky option if he plays and could be kept on the bench since he probably would be limited. Orleans Darkwa and Bobby Rainey would share work if Jennings is ruled out. Darkwa likely would receive most of the carries and could be flex option in some leagues.

  • Posted: 9/29/2016 2:04pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: The indication is that Jennings is more doubtful than questionable for Week 4, so it may be mainly Orleans Darkwa and Bobby Rainey in New York's backfield this week. Unfortunately, they're up against one of the toughest run defenses in the league in the Minnesota Vikings, who haven't yet given up a rushing touchdown to running backs. It's best to keep Darkwa and Rainey out of starting lineups.

  • Posted: 9/29/2016 6:07am ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) is likely to miss the Week 4 game Monday, Oct. 3, according to multiple sources.

    Huddle Up: Orleans Darkwa and Bobby Rainey figure to split the load against a tough Minnesota Vikings defense. Darkwa rushed 10 times for 53 yards and a score last week. Rainey only had a 24-yard reception and should see time in the passing downs. Neither are a strong play because of the matchup, but Darkwa has the edge as a flex play.

  • Posted: 9/26/2016 11:32am ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb), who missed Week 3 with a sprained thumb, could be ready to return against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 4, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

    Huddle Up: Given the Giants are less than 24 hours out from declaring their starting running back out, this optimism may be more a product of their urgency than any real progress after the team lost Shane Vereen for the season on Monday. Orleans Darkwa and Bobby Rainey figure to share touches should Jennings not be able to go, but neither player can be considered more than a desperation flex play against a very good defense.

  • Posted: 9/25/2016 5:36pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) said Sunday, Sept. 25, that he understood head coach Ben McAdoo's decision to keep him out. He said his thumb feels better and he is hopeful of returning in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: With Jennings sidelined it was Orleans Darkwa shouldering the load in the backfield for Big Blue. If Jennings is forced to miss more time Darkwa is worth a look in some deeper fantasy formats and DFS leagues.

  • Posted: 9/25/2016 9:28am ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 3 game.

    Huddle Up: Shane Vereen and Orleans Darkwa should share playing time at running back this week with Vereen likely to be the starter at the position. Vereen likely will have more value in fantasy leagues and can be a decent flex option for owners. Darkwa probably should only be an option for desperate owners in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 9/25/2016 6:14am ET

    Contrary to a previous report, New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) is not expected to be active for Week 3's game against the Washington Redskins. RB Shane Vereen is expected to see the bulk of the snaps in his place.

    Huddle Up: Vereen is averaging four yards per carry and has caught six passes for 47 yards through the first two games this season. He merits consideration as a flex option in most fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 9/24/2016 9:18am ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (hand) is continuing to work through his sprained left thumb and done enough to make offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan believe he'll be able to play through the injury in Week 3 versus the Washington Redskins. 'It?s something that?s not natural. He?s used to doing that without the cast. ? It?s definitely an adjustment that we have great confidence he?ll be able to make,' Sullivan said.

    Huddle Up: Sullivan did not reveal whether the injury played a role in Jennings' meager workload in Week 3 (13 carries for 27 yards). Shane Vereen (14 carries, 42 yards) was marginally better and even saw some work at the goal line, but he isn't the answer. Neither Jennings nor Vereen can considered anything better than flex plays in Week 3.

  • Posted: 9/23/2016 12:36pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) is being listed as questionable for the team's Week 3 game Sunday, September 26, against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: After an encouraging performance in the season opener at Dallas, Jennings disappointed owners everywhere with a flat outing at home against the New Orleans Saints. It looks like he'll be entering the next contest a little hobbled -- if he plays, that is -- which could prevent him from providing RB2 numbers.

  • Posted: 9/22/2016 1:44pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

    Huddle Up: It would still be a surprise if Jennings was unable to play this weekend even though he's been limited this week. Check his status heading into the weekend, but he should still be in starting lineups versus a Washington Redskins defense that has given up 122.5 yards and two touchdowns on the ground per game to running backs.

  • Posted: 9/21/2016 12:05pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Jennings appears to have a good chance to play in Week 3, but owners should continue to monitor his status. He probably will receive is usual playing time if he is active for the game and can be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 9/19/2016 3:58pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings (hand) should be on the field in some capacity in Week 3, according to ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan.

    Huddle Up: Jennings' status for Week 3 is vague at this point, so he'll need to be monitored throughout the week. If he is limited at all or can't play then Shane Vereen and Orleans Darkwa would be the primary beneficiaries. Starting Vereen as a flex in such a case wouldn't be out of the question.

  • Posted: 8/2/2016 3:39pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is the No. 1 running back this year, according to running backs coach Craig Johnson. Johnson dispelled any notion that the Giants would implement a four-running back committee again this season.

    Huddle Up: If this turns out to be truthful, Jennings will turn to be a steal with his current ADP of 42 (125 overall) among RBs, but more evidence is needed.

  • Posted: 7/14/2016 4:41pm ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings said at 31 he thinks he's just now entering his prime. 'There's a difference between being an NFL player and being a pro,' Jennings said. 'Being an NFL player is a guy that comes into the league, has some talent, plays a little bit. But a pro really understands how to take care of his body, how to play the X's and O's, play the game before it happens. I've just been allowing my maturity to catch up with my age at the same time. I'm excited. As I get into my latter years, I'm getting into my prime.'

    Huddle Up: Jennings posted career highs last season with 195 carries and 863 rushing yards last season, and still remains the best fantasy option in an even-more crowded N.Y. backfield. Still don't draft him any higher than a low-end RB3 or flex option in standard-size leagues.

  • Posted: 7/10/2016 2:10am ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings could see around 15 to 18 carries per game in 2016, according to John Schmeelk of giants.com. Jennings will still be the Giants' primary running back, with RB Shane Vereen serving as the third-down back.

    Huddle Up: Jennings remains atop the Giants' backfield committee. Vereen is more of a third-down back, Andre Williams has done little in his tenure in New York, and rookie Paul Perkins is unproven. You won't have to overpay to acquire Jennings' fantasy services, but if he does push the 20 carry mark on a weekly basis he should more than deliver a solid return on that investment.

  • Posted: 5/13/2016 9:50am ET

    New York Giants RB Rashad Jennings is expected to be the workhorse running back and receive the majority of carries in 2016, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. Jennings saw 48.3% of the Giants' carries last season, but Vacchiano expects that to increase this season.

    Huddle Up: The Giants only lightly addressed their underachieving backfield, taking Paul Perkins on Day Three. Unless he wows in OTAs and training camp New York will likely trot out something similar to last season: Jennings as the lead dog, Shane Vereen as the pass catcher, and Andre Williams with his 2.9 yards per carry disappointing in the short-yardage role.
