    Giants' Rashad Jennings: Tallies 28 yards against Washington

    Jennings ran for 14 yards on six carries in Sunday's loss to Washington. He added two catches off of three targets for 14 yards. Jennings' eight touches were his second lowest total of the season and his 28 total yards was his most modest total since Week 7. With such a crowded backfield in New York it is difficult for any back to distinguish himself, even Jennings, the team's leading rusher. Jennings has been unable to make up for his limited yardage with scores, having not scored a rushing touchdown since Week 1 or a touchdown of any kind since Week 4. With 23 of the the Giants' 26 offensive touchdowns coming through the air this season, it is unlikely that Jennings will suddenly become a scoring threat.

    Giants' Rashad Jennings: Leads the Giants' backfield in touches

    Jennings had 11 carries for 39 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 27-26 loss to New England. Jennings led the Giants in carries Sunday, as the trio of Orleans Darkwa, Andre Williams and Shane Vereen combined to carry the ball 11 times for only 31 yards. Jennings' long rush Sunday was just six yards, which has been a constant theme this season. In fact, he's got just one run of over 20 yards and one rushing touchdown this year, and both of those came back in Week 1. The presence of PPR darling Vereen also limits Jennings' upside in the passing game, so it's hard to get excited about him at the moment. In any event, make sure he's on your bench in Week 11, as the Giants will have their bye.

    Giants' Rashad Jennings: Rushes for 48 yards against Tampa Bay

    Jennings carried the ball 13 times for 48 yards and added a -1-yard catch in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay. The 13 carries tied a season-high for Jennings, who had seen just 15 combined carries in the previous two weeks combined. Though he's the team leader in carries, the Giants' decision to alternate Jennings, Shane Vereen, Andre Williams and Orleans Darkwa in the backfield makes it extremely difficult to depend on any of them from week to week. Jennings has not scored on the ground since Week 1 or at all since Week 4 and has yet to top 92 total yards in any game this season, so there seems to be limited risk in sitting him and watching him dominate on your bench.

    Giants' Rashad Jennings: Leading rusher in shootout

    Jennings led the Giants with 54 rushing yards on 10 carries, and caught 2-of-3 targets for 31 more yards in Sunday's 52-49 loss to the Saints. This game was all about passing, as Eli Manning and Drew Brees combined for a ridiculous 13 touchdowns. Though it's disappointing that Jennings failed to score, his 5.4 yards-per-carry average and decent workload on the ground were both encouraging signs for his outlook moving forward.

    Giants' Rashad Jennings: Just five carries in win

    Jennings had just five carries for 19 yards and was not targeted in the passing game in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Cowboys. Even though the Giants' backfield has sort of been a three-headed monster so far this season, Jennings had seen most of the carries, at least until Sunday, when they suddenly mixed in Orleans Darkwa, who had eight carries for 48 yards and a touchdown. Jennings is not making many big plays, with just one run of 20+ yards this year, so perhaps that was the reason for his lack of usage. Also, Dallas controlled the ball for nearly 40 minutes, so the Giants couldn't get much going in general offensively. Assuming he gets more touches next week, the veteran Jennings could post decent numbers at New Orleans, which has been generous to opposing RBs so far this season.

    Giants RB Rashad Jennings records 94 yards of offense, TD in win

    Giants running back Rashad Jennings rushed nine times for 38 yards and caught two passes on two targets for 54 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Bills. Jennings led the Giants in rushing and receiving yards, though neither total was terribly prolific. Additionally, Andre Williams actually got two more carries than Jennings and Shane Vereen got five himself, as the Giants continue to use a bit of a committee approach. 51 of Jennings' 54 receiving yards came on his touchdown, so while it was good to see him involved in the passing game, the length of his completion was a bit fluky. Up next is a Week 5 home game against a fairly weak 49ers defense.

    Giants QB Eli Manning shines on three-touchdown Sunday

    Giants quarterback Eli Manning completed 20 of 35 passes for 212 yards and three touchdowns Sunday against the Bills. He also threw an interception and fumbled once, though his team recovered. Manning connected with only five receivers, but he spread out his scores, passing touchdown passes to Rashad Jennings, Dwayne Harris and Rueben Randle. He has thrown multiple touchdowns in three straight games, and his pick was the first time he's been picked off all season. Up next is a Week 5 matchup against a San Francisco defense that has been lit up by opposing quarterbacks this season.

    Giants' Rashad Jennings said offense will be 'dominant' in 2015

    Running back Rashad Jennings believes the Giants have the tools to be one of the NFL's premier offenses in 2015. Citing the arrival of Shane Vereen, return of Victor Cruz and emergence of Odell Beckham, Jennings, via the New York Daily News, said he's optimistic that the offense will cause plenty of problems this season. "I think we're going to have a dominant offense," Jennings said. "Eli [Manning] is really comfortable in the offense now — being able to control a lot from the line of scrimmage." The Giants started slow offensively a year ago but caught fire down the stretch when Manning and Beckham began hooking up for big plays. The Giants scored 24 or more points in their final six games of the 2014 season.
