    Giants' Andre Williams: Held to two yards agaist the Patriots

    Williams rushed for two yards on two carries in Sunday's loss to New England. Coming off of his third-largest workload of the season before the bye, Williams saw the field for all of two snaps on Sunday, a season low. A large part of Sunday's low snapcount is attributable to the Giants' commitment to the pass, as the team attempted 44 throws - Eli Manning's second highest total of the season. It also illustrates how fickle Williams' role is in New York. The second-year back has topped 40 yards just once this season and has scored once. He should not be on most fantasy rosters.

    Giants' Andre Williams: Runs for 30 yards against Tampa Bay

    Williams carried the ball seven times for 30 yards in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay. He added a seven-yard reception on one target. The catch was Williams' first of the season and his 13 offensive snaps were his most since Week 4. Eight touches on 13 plays is an excellent usage rate, but, with three other backs in the mix, many more snaps are unlikely to be forthcoming. With just one score on the season, Williams is not likely to vulture enough touchdowns to be worth a pickup.

    Giants' Andre Williams: Rushes for 13 yards

    Williams rushed for 13 yards on four carries in Sunday's win over Dallas. Things have gone from bad to worse for Williams, who saw his spot on the pecking order move further down with Orleans Darkwa taking the field. Shane Vereen saw the field for 23 snaps on Sunday, according to Pro Football Focus, followed by Darkwa, Rashad Jennings and Williams with 14, 11 and five snaps, respectively. The fact that Williams touched the ball on 80 percent of his snaps is impressive, but the sheer lack of volume should knock Williams off of any fantasy rosters he managed to stick around on.

    Giants' Andre Williams: Held to six yards in Philadelphia

    Williams rushed for six yards on five carries in Monday's loss to Philadelphia. Williams has now seen fewer snaps than both Rashad Jennings and Shane Vereen in five of the Giants' six games after his nine snaps on Monday trailed Jennings and Vereen with 31 and 28, respectively. Williams has not managed to do much with the opportunities he has been given, averaging a dismal 2.8 yards per carry on 45 rushes. With Jennings, despite a mediocre 3.7 yards-per-carry average, serving as the primary rusher and Shane Vereen the main passing-downs option, Williams may see himself squeezed out of playing time for much of the rest of the season.

    Giants running back Andre Williams stymied against 49ers

    Giants running back Andre Williams was held without a rushing yard on three carries in Sunday's win over the 49ers. After a promising rookie year that featured seven rushing touchdowns, Williams has been deemphasized in the Giants' offense thus far in 2015, ranking behind both Rashad Jennings and Shane Vereen in snaps in four of the team's first five games. That trend has continued over the past three weeks where his snaps have gone from a season high 23 in Week 3 to 18 and eight in Weeks 4 or 5. With Jennings firmly planted as the Giants' primary rusher and Vereen's role expanding weekly, it's difficult to see too many paths to the field for Williams.

    Andre Williams leads Giants with 11 carries in Week 4 victory over Bills

    Giants running back Andre Williams had a team-high 11 carries for 35 yards Sunday against the Bills. While Williams got the most carries, Rashad Jennings led the team in rushing yards (38 on nine carries) and receiving yards (two catches for 54 yards and a touchdown). Additionally, Shane Vereen rushed five times for 21 yards. The Giants' backfield seems to be clearly working as a committee right now, making all three options very tough to start in most fantasy formats.

    Giants' Andre Williams gains 29 yards, scores TD in Week 3 win

    Giants running back Andre Williams had 14 carries for 29 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 32-21 win over the Redskins. Williams got both of the Giants' goal-line carries and converted one for a touchdown, but he otherwise didn't have much luck on the ground. He did lead his team's running backs with 23 snaps, just barely edging out Shane Vereen (22) and starter Rashad Jennings (21), according to Pro Football Focus. Williams will likely handle most of the goal-line and short-yardage work, but he's part of a true committee and still isn't involved in the passing game.

    Giants expected to keep Rashad Jennings despite landing Vereen

    Despite their reported agreement with free agent running back Shane Vereen, the Giants are expected to retain running back Rashad Jennings in a crowded backfield with second-year bruiser Andre Williams, reports The Star-Ledger. Jennings averaged 17.9 touches in the 11 games he played last season, averaging 3.8 yards per carry and rushing for four touchdowns while catching 30 passes for 226 yards. Williams ran for seven scores while averaging 3.3 yards per carry. It's unclear how the Giants will divide up backfield work. Cutting Jennings after June 1 would save the team $2.25 million against the cap.

    Andre Williams, Rashad Jennings split workload Week 17

    Giants running backs Andre Williams and Rashad Jennings combined for 31 touches in the Week 17 loss to the Eagles. Williams, a rookie, ran 15 times for 43 yards and a touchdown, his seventh this year. He caught all three of his targets for 19 yards. Jennings, returning from an ankle injury, rushed 10 times for 29 yards and caught three of five targets for 21 yards. The duo should enter 2015 in a backfield timeshare.

    Giants RBs Rashad Jennings, Andre Williams active vs. Eagles

    Giants running backs Rashad Jennings (ankle) and Andre Williams (shoulder) are active for Sunday's game against the Eagles after being listed on the injury report. Jennings has not been a factor since Week 13, while the rookie Williams has rushed for more than 100 yards in two of the past three weeks. They'll likely share the load against Philly.
