Giants hoping Andre Williams claims RB2 job

ESPN - [Full Article]

Rashad Jennings is the clear No. 1 back for the Giants, but now that neck injuries have forced David Wilson to retire, the Giants are trying to sort out the running back depth chart behind him.

Their preference is for rookie fourth-rounder Andre Williams to show enough to claim the No. 2 spot. He looks good running the ball but not so good catching it, and, as any rookie back would, he has work to do in pass protection.

Fantasy Impact: 

The loss of Wilson is a big deal, especially because the Giants don't have a prototype third down back. As the story said above, Williams is struggling in the passing game which is typical of rookie backs, but he at least seems poised to perhaps be an early-down handcuff to Jennings.
