Giants don't necessarily want RB committee - [Full Article]

A committee, while the most obvious approach with a spare-parts unit, isn't how Giants running backs coach Craig Johnson wants to deploy his backs.

"What I've learned is that if you can have a couple of guys playing a lot, then a spare guy, that's the best way to go," Johnson said, per the team's official website.

Johnson points to Rashad Jennings' play at the end of last season as evidence the veteran might be the man to carry the workload in 2016.

"At the end of the year, he was probably playing as well as any back in football," Johnson said of Jennings.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Giants have a lot of options but everything seems to point back to Jennings getting the most work. Andre Williams has never found his way and Shane Vereen is more of a dynamic, third down back. Paul Perkins is a rookie and Orleans Darkwa has never rushed for 50 yards.
