Injury Report


Nothing to worry about with Jennings, as he made it through his rookie campaign unharmed

Cruz Teaches Jennings How To Salsa Into Unemployment

Pyro's take: Cruz and Jennings were this weekend's cap casualties for NYG. This frees up about $10mm in 2017 cap space.

Fantasy Goo: Go ahead and work a deal in keeper and dynasty leagues to sell high on Paul Perkins as there's no guarantee he will be a three down back. Look for the Giants to add WR/RB depth in free agency and the draft.

Perkins Expected to Start Against the Packers

Pyro's take: After being the first Giants RB to gain a triple-digit rushing day this season, Perkins will get the start on Sunday.

Fantasy goo: For $4,100 on Draft Kings, Perkins is an intriguing play, especially if he is in line to get a bulk of the work. Still, the way to attack the Packers is via the air.

Giants Backfield: Giants Mess


Pyro's take: Shane Vereen suffered a possibly season-ending triceps injury. The New York Giants haven't explicitly stated that the injury is season-ending despite initial reports that it would be. As it stands Rashad Jennings is in line to carry the load as the primary back for the Giants if he's healthy. Jennings has been battling a hand injury which caused him to miss the week 3 contest versus the Redskins.

Fantasy goo: It's tough to really pin down this New York Giant rushing attack. Jennings was moderately effective last season towards the end of the year when finally given ample opportunity, but has been underwhelming this year so far. If Jennings can't go the primary ballcarrier duties should fall to Orleans Darkwa. Darkwa, who has averaged 4.1 yards per carry this season, received 10 carries in week 3 with Jennings on the sideline.

Vereen to Start for Giants


Pyro's take: Vereen is the man for the Giants today. Jennings is out.

Fantasy Goo: The Redskins have allowed the most TDs to RBs in the league, 4 rushing. He is a low-end RB2 in PPR.

Rashad Jennings Practicing On Wednesday Good Sign That He Will Be Ready For Action Against Redskins Week Three

Rashad Jennings

Pyro's take: Rashad Jennings is practicing on Wednesday showing no signs of trouble with his left hand/thumb. According to the Giants' beat writers, Jennings does not appear to be bothered by the wrap which is protecting his left thumb.

Fantasy Goo: As of Wednesday, it does not appear Jennings is in any danger of missing the Giants' Week 3 game against the Redskins. Jennings remains a RB2 option with a limited ceiling in fantasy leagues headed into Week 3.

Solid Play this week


Pyro's take: Jennings gets to face a cupcake defense in the New Orleans Saints this week, and should be in your lineup. Last week the Saints gave up 38 fantasy points to the Raiders running backs, and that game was in New Orleans. Rashad should find a lot of open holes as well as do some damage in the passing game.

Looking to get 15-18 carries a game

Giants.com's John Schmeelk believes Rashad Jennings will "get around 15-18 carries a game."

Pyro's take: Giants.com's John Schmeelk believes Rashad Jennings will "get around 15-18 carries a game." Jennings is generally expected to open the season as the primary ball carrier for the Giants, but Schmeelk's projection is aggressive.

Fantasy Goo: Do NOT be the guy in your league who drafts Rashad Jennings. I would suggest taking the top kicker or defense if you are considering this bad decision. That is how much I am against you wasting your pick. Not only will Jennings get hurt multiple times per year, he will also disappoint your touchdown dreams. In his career, Rashad has 1,4,0,2,6,4,and last year had 4 touchdowns. Where is the upside?? The only thing going for him is that he is a starter but, for how long and what production? If there is any boom in the G-Men backfield it would be Paul Perkins. Study up on Perkins and decide if you would like to have any Giant runner this year. In the 13th round of a 12 team league, Perkins is currently going 5 rounds later than Jennings. You would not punch yourself in the face, would you? Then shy away from Jennings.

Rashad Jennings To Be The Primary Running Back For Big Blue

John Schmeelk of the New York Giants

Pyro's take: John Schmeelk of the New York Giants website believes that running back Rashad Jennings will receive 15-18 carries per game in 2016.

"Rashad Jennings is likely to be the primary running back on first and second downs, given his ability to run, block and catch out of the backfield," writes Shmeelk. This is given health, of course, which is never a guarantee for Jennings. Schmeelk also projects 5-10 touches for Shane Vereen as the the third-down option. Jennings seems to be gaining steam as the best fantasy option in the Giants backfield due to the way he finished last season. But I recommend be on the lookout for rookie running back Paul Perkins who could contest for carries as the season goes on. My suggestion is steer clear of this running back by community until the smoke clears.

He can run it, he can catch it, he can block

Rookie Progress Report: Paul Perkins
“He can run it, he can catch it, he can block,” general manager Jerry Reese said.

Pyro's take: Rookie Progress Report: Paul Perkins
“He can run it, he can catch it, he can block,” general manager Jerry Reese said. “He’ll play on all of the core teams… solid football player. People say he doesn’t have home run speed, but I saw him on an 82-yard touchdown against Colorado. Really good, solid football player. I like him a lot. He’s a three-down player.”

Fantasy Goo: Unless you are Al Bundy, the inventor of the 7 day underwear, you will need to make a change once in a while and I believe the G-Men would like for this to be the year. On the FF Calculator Paul Perkins is going at 170th which is the 13th round in a 12 team league. Martavis Bryant (banned for 2016 season) is going 168th so; you understand Perkins is ridiculously low right now. This should correct itself during the preseason games if Perkins plays as I expect. Jennings is old news and the headlines in 2016 will read, “Paul Perkins takes over the starting running back role for good.” The New York Giants passing attack will provide Perkins the breathing room to carve out a role fit for fantasy later round gold.

Will be the likely workhorse and get the majority of carries

Rashad Jennings, who I like a lot more than most fans (and media) seem to like, will be the likely workhorse and get the majority of carries.

Pyro's take: Rashad Jennings, who I like a lot more than most fans (and media) seem to like, will be the likely workhorse and get the majority of carries. (By the way, hard as it is to believe, he got 48.3% of the carries last year, though I'd expect that to tick up.)

Fantasy Goo: Rashad “Game-Time-Decision” Jennings had a very nice 4.4 yards per carry in 2015 along with 29 receptions. When Jennings in in the Giants game plan he can be effective but, Jennings often runs into little bumps and bruises that place him on the sideline. Rashad is a fantasy backup or bye week running back at this point who has never scored more than 6 touchdowns in any season in fact his next highest touchdown totals are only 4 which he accomplished twice.

Andre Williams primed to be named top dog in backfield


Pyro's take: Rashad Jennings is in danger of losing his starting job to Andre Williams. "Based on what the coaches have seen on film, Williams could surpass Jennings as the No. 1 back," ESPN’s Dan Graziano reported. Jennings is struggling with his 2.7 yards per carry average.

Not Practicing

Tom Coughlin has stated that Rashad Jennings was out for practice today, according to Dan Graziano via twitter "Coughlin says Rashad Jennings (ankle) will not practice today."

Pyro's take: This is not good for owners counting on Jennings this week, with the Giants nowhere near the playoffs, with him battling injury,and not playing last week, expect the same coming into this week.

Take a scour on the waiver wire and see if there is someone viable to help you out in this situation, one of the Cowboys running backs maybe there, or Toby Gerhart could be available.

Hurt Again

Rashad Jennings seemed to re-injure his ankle. He only played one snap. After his four-yard carry he was taken out of the game. Andre Williams came in to relieve Jennings and rushed for only 44-yards on 18 carries.

Pyro's take: Dont be surprised to see Jennings get shut down for the remainder of the season. He has been through a lot of injuries this season, and with the Giants not in contention of anything, it may be the smartest move to take. Williams will then be the starting running back, but he offers little value.

No Set Backs

Jordan Raanan has stated via his twitter that "Rashad Jennings said he came out of Sunday w/knee feeling solid. No setbacks"

Pyro's take: Great news for Giants fans as Rashad Jennings has been a special pick-up for them this season. Andre Williams has been just the opposite in his rookie season, so as long as Jennings is healthy dont expect to see much of Williams.

All owners should start Jennings in all formats.

11/17/14, 07:16 PM CST by Vaaal-verde

The Giants offense was brutal at best with Andre Williams at running back, but now they can turn the tide, as Rashad Jennings is back as the main ball carrier. "Hopefully, without a setback, he'll be ready to go," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Wednesday morning. "He'll give us a tremendous lift." They were averaging 121 rushing yards per game with Jennings as their starter but are averaging only 83 rushing yards per game in the four games they've played without him.

Pyro's take: The numbers and victories speak for themselves, so if you own Jennings, and were using him in your lineups, its safe to do so.

If you own Williams, keep him if you can, he is the sole number two back, and if something shall happen to Jennings, you still have a starting running back.

Rashad Jennings will be out this week, as he did not travel with the team. Ralph Vacchiano has stated that via twitter "RB Rashad Jennings (knee) is not travelling with the Giants to Seattle. So he is out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks."

Pyro's take: Another week of bumbling Andre Williams. The Giants season has severely gone down the drain, and there is no looking up as long as Andre Williams is in.

Play him only if you have too, he might get a cheap touchdown, as he did last week.

Not Practicing

Rashad Jennings did not participate in practice today, according to Jordan Raanan via twitter "Rashad Jennings will NOT practice today. Still just doing straight-ahead running mostly."

Pyro's take: Jennings will not play this week, and the hope is that he can return next week, in his place will be the unimpressive rookie Andre Williams.

Not Practicing

Jordan Raanan writer for NJ.com, has stated via twitter that "Rashad Jennings and Jon Beason did NOT practice. Antrel Rolle was in and out. DRC and Geoff Schwartz did."

Pyro's take: At this point its early to tell what the situation may be for Jennings. One thing for sure, the Giants miss him, as Andre Williams has been a complete bust, so far this season.

Ruled Out

Rashad Jennings has been ruled out for week seven, according to Kimberly Jones, NFL columnist via her twitter account. "NYG: Tom Coughlin ruled out RB Rashad Jennings this week. TC: "I hope so" when asked if RJ would return after bye."

Pyro's take: "I hope so" from Tom Coughlin isnt hiding what he thought of Andre Williams performance. Williams was horrible in his first start, and in no way did he erase the memory of Rashad Jennings. Keep hold of both as Jennings may come back and get hurt again, but get Jennings in the starting rotation as soon as he returns.

Jennings Jacked

Rashad Jennings left the game this Sunday due to a knee sprain. He departed in the third quarter and replaced by Andre Williams. Williams managed to catch a pass out of the backfield and blast in a touchdown run.

Jennings has been the cog for Ben McAdoo's system, who is a three-down back, that can catch the ball out of the backfield and block. Williams is just getting his feet wet, and does not seem to be able to catch the ball very well.

Rashad Jennings finished the game with 10 carries for 55 yards, while catching two passes for 17. Williams finished with 65 yards on 20 carries and a touchdown, and two catches for 18 yards.

Pyro's take: If Jennings is unable to go on Sunday, look for Williams to pick-up the slack with Peyton Hillis in relief. It will be interesting to see what the rookie can do, but I would hold back starting him for now, even though that match-up looks mighty tasty against the Eagles.
