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.

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.

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.

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
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
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
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.

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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
