Scouting report

NYG RB Rashad Jennings - Week 11, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. Chicago

Rashad Jennings had a nice game against the Bengals last week, putting up 87 yards on 15 carries and adding in 22 yards on three receptions. Jennings is holding onto his starting job right now, but he split snaps 60-40 with rookie Paul Perkins and is hard to trust on a week-to-week basis.

Chicago has been surprisingly effective on defense this year, and rank seventh in the league in rushing yards allowed per attempt. Expect the Giants to give Jennings at least a dozen carries again, making him relevant, but his upside is limited and he should be considered a low-end RB2 at best.

NYG RB Rashad Jennings - Week 10, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs. Cincinnati

Rashad Jennings is slowly losing his job to rookie Paul Perkins. He had 11 carries for 26 yards last week against the Eagles, but Perkins also had 11 carries. Both players caught three passes as well, showing that either can be effective in the passing game.

This week, Jennings still has value against a Bengals team that ranks 23rd in the league in rushing yards allowed per game. While I would expect his role to continue to decline, he’s still getting 50+% of the snaps on offense for now and should be in for another 8-12 carries at least, making him a low-end RB2 option in large leagues.

NYG RB Rashad Jennings - Week 9, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs. Philadelphia

Rashad Jennings hasn’t had a good year. After 75 yards in the first game, he’s had only 67 yards on 35 carries in the three games he’s played in since. If he’s not careful he’s going to lose his job. Jennings did score a touchdown in London against the Rams before the bye last week, so hopefully for fantasy owners looking to Jennings, he’ll get goal line work.

He’s a risky option against the Eagles this week, but as long as he remains the starter, it’s hard not to consider him a viable fantasy option. If he continues to get more than a dozen touches per game, then he could be a solid low-end RB2 most weeks. The Eagles have only allowed four rushing touchdowns this season, but opponents are averaging 4.7 yards per carry against them, tied for fifth most in the league. He should be considered a risky RB2 this week or a reasonable bye week or injury filler.

NYG RB Rashad Jennings - Week 7, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs. Los Angeles
Rashad Jennings came back to action last week against the Ravens, but was largely ineffective. He had only 35 total yards on nine carries and four receptions. He split carries with Bobby Rainey, and rookie Paul Perkins got into the game a bit as well, on the field for 10 percent of the team’s offensive snaps.

This week, it’s hard to trust Jennings in London against the Rams. While the Rams have been below average against the run this season, Jennings’ workload isn’t trustworthy enough to count on him. Since he’s likely to get at least a dozen or so touches, it’s worth considering him as a low-end RB2/RB3 in larger leagues, but if you can look elsewhere, you should be able to find someone with a bit more upside.

NYG RB Rashad Jennings - Week 6, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Baltimore
Rashad Jennings practiced more this week, making it possible that he returns to action Sunday against the Ravens. He plays in an early game, so fantasy owners should check his status before game time. The Ravens are actually a top-5 team against the run this year, limiting Jennings’ upside, but he has low-end RB2 value if he gets the start.

NYG RB Rashad Jennings - Week 3, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs. Washington
Rashad Jennings got a little banged up last week against the Saints, but right now seems like he’s okay. It was a forgettable day for the Giants’ running game, as Jennings and Shane Vereen combined for only 69 rushing yards against a team that was torched by the Raiders in Week 1. Jennings also caught both short passes that were thrown his way, adding 13 yards receiving.

Check his injury status going into the game against Washington, but assuming nothing changes and he’s good to go, he should be a moderate RB2 in most league formats. Washington has allowed five rushing touchdowns – including one to QB Dak Prescott – through the first two games as well as the fifth most rushing yards. If Jennings is healthy and gets 12-18 touches, he should be worth starting.

NYG RB Rashad Jennings - Week 2, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. New Orleans

Rashad Jennings had a nice start to the season. He got 18 carries for 75 yards on the ground, and also caught a three yard pass. While he was only targeted twice in the passing game, it was good to see him get a full workload. Jennings should continue to carry the rock as long as he stays healthy.

This week, Jennings has a great matchup against the Saints. New Orleans gave up 167 yards and three touchdowns on the ground last week against the Raiders. If Jennings gets another 12-20 touches this week, he should be good for borderline RB1/RB2 numbers in all league formats.
