Rashad 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 New York 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.
Rashad 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 New York 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.
Rashad Jennings led the New York 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.
Rashad 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 New York 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.
New York 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 Buffalo 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.
