Giants RB Rashad Jennings 'is no longer the man' in the backfield

Ebenezer Samuel, NY Daily News - [Full Article]

Rashad Jennings is no longer the man in the Giants' backfield. Jennings, who looked like a bell cow running back early last season, has been seeing a great many second-team reps and special teams reps in camp. Shane Vereen, this year's free agent acquisition, has been drawing more first-team reps, as has second-year man Andre Williams. At the least, this looks like a backfield-by-committee.

Fantasy Impact: 

Another recent report lauded Jennings' play in camp, so it's unclear what exactly is going on here. We have a hard time believing that the Giants are going to promote Andre WIlliams and his 3.3 YPC, though we do envision a large role for Shane Vereen as a passing down specialist.
