Rashad Jennings only back to carry the ball in the 1st half

NJ.com - [Full Article]

It's pretty clear how much the Giants have invested in running back Rashad Jennings. He took almost all the first-half snaps with the starting offense, and was the only Giants player to carry the ball in the first half. Jennings had 13 carries for 67 yards. Andre Williams, the trash-talking rookie, appears to be little more than an occasional fill-in/goal line option.

Fantasy Impact: 

Rashad Jennings was the #6 RB from Week 9 to Week 15 (when he was playing starter’s snaps for the Raiders) and that included a missed game against the Jets in Week 14. In 13 career games where he has seen 15+ touches, Jennings has averaged 14.4 fantasy points, or solid RB1 numbers. Jennings will be 29 to open the season, so he’s close to the end of a running back’s prime. But given the limited workload he has seen for most of his career, there should be plenty of tread left on his tires.
