Jennings is a jack-of-all-trades tailback, capable of toting the rock, catching passes and protecting the quarterback. However, if he were to see 15-18 carries per game, he would finish with somewhere between 240 and 288 carries on the year; the six-year veteran hadn't topped 167 carries in any season before last year's 195 attempts. Jennings needed to stay healthy for an entire 16-game slate for the first time in his career to reach that career-high, too. Given Jennings' injury history, with Shane Vereen in the mix on passing downs, HC Ben McAdoo's endorsement of Andre Williams, the addition of Bobby Rainey, and the selection of Paul Perkins in the fifth round, it is still too soon to project how the Giants will divide the work amongst their stable of runners. Training camp and the preseason should shed light on the situation.
Rashad Jennings had his best game of the season in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, racking up 170 yards and a touchdown on 27 carries. He also caught two of five targets for six additional yards.
The veteran was fed early and often versus a Philadelphia run defense that had been reeling in the second half of the season, and he responded with his best game since Week 3 of 2014. Jennings' production was rather pedestrian for most of the season, but he finished strong with at least 100 total yards in each of the last four weeks. Jennings is under contract for two more seasons, and he should enter 2016 as the New York Giants ' leading rusher as things currently stand.
Rashad Jennings had 14 carries for 74 yards and two catches for 62 yards in Sunday's 49-17 loss to the Vikings.
Jennings unsurprisingly did most of his damage in the first half, as the New York Giants were forced to go pass-heavy while playing from behind. He was really the team's only effective weapon, though he didn't actually pick up much more than what was blocked, even on a 50-yard gain from a screen pass. Having mostly fended off the four-man committee from earlier this season, Jennings is a decent bet to top 15+ touches for a fourth straight game in Week 17 against the Eagles.
Rashad Jennings carried 16 times for 101 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. He grabbed one of his three targets for no gain.
The veteran had his best rushing game of the season versus the stout panthers defense, topping the 100-yard mark for the first time and scoring on the ground for just the second time. The New York Giants stand to benefit mightily from a productive Jennings, and they are likely to continue feeding him, as his 41 touches over the last two weeks illustrate. Jennings and company will travel to take on the Vikings in Week 16.
Rashad Jennings had 22 carries for 81 yards and caught two passes for 21 more yards.
After Andre Williams fumbled early, Jennings saw the bulk of the work and ran hard, breaking tackles and getting yards after contact. The New York Giants run blocking is still poor, and it's unclear whether the team will go back to a committee next week, but Jennings made a case for the team to consider re-establishing him as a feature back of sorts.
