Giants still unsure if RB Rashad Jennings will play Week 4

Rashad Jennings was a late scratch with a thumb injury in Week 3.

Giants HC Ben McAdoo doesn't know yet if Jennings will be ready for the Vikings game.

"It's one day following the game," McAdoo said. "He has a long week to make some progress. We'll take a look at that at the end of the week."

Related players: Orleans Darkwa, Bobby Rainey, Paul Perkins

Fantasy Impact:

The team lost Shane Vereen (tricep) who was played on IR. He may or may not return this season, according to reports, so there's a bigger need for Jennings to come back this week. If he can't go, Orleans Darkwa, Bobby Rainey and Paul Perkins would make up the running back unit.

Zimmer: WR Laquon Treadwell has to do better in practice

ESPN 1500 - [Full Article]

The Minnesota Vikings season thus far has included many things that nobody expected – Sam Bradford playing quarterback in Minnesota, for starters – but high on the list of surprises is the fact that first-round pick WR Laquon Treadwell has only been on the field for two plays in three games. He was inactive on Sunday against Carolina.

Fantasy Impact:

Treadwell was selected 23rd overall this April and is struggling to get playing time so far. But HC Mike Zimmer said he's biding his time - like Stefon Diggs did last year - and may be thinking too much about steps to take on each route.
