Though, you might want to keep Jennings on your bench Week 14. It's hard to fathom seeing how Jennings has scored in double digit in Fantasy points four of the last five games, averaging 15.8 Fantasy points in that span. But the Jets do pose a difficult matchup.
Running backs are averaging 11.3 Fantasy points per week against New York, which is the second-lowest average. Running backs are also averaging just 66.3 rushing yards and 21.4 receiving yards, while totaling seven touchdowns (six rushing) in 12 games. Only four running backs have totaled at least 10 Fantasy points against New York. They are Doug Martin, Fred Jackson, Jacquizz Rodgers and Stevan Ridley.

Prior to getting hurt, Jennings rushed for only 35 yards on 17 carries, but he recorded two rushing touchdowns for the first time in his career. He added the one catch for 8 yards.
Jennings' first touchdown was a 1-yard run on 3rd-and-goal in the second quarter, which came one play after the officials overturned an Andre Holmes' 16-yard touchdown. The officials ruled Holmes down at the 1-yard line. Jennings' second touchdown was also a 1-yard run with 1:56 left in the second quarter.
Jennings has totaled four rushing touchdowns in his last five games. The Raiders are back in action Week 14 at N.Y. Jets.

Jennings leads the NFL with 553 total offensive yards since a hamstring injury sidelined McFadden on Nov. 3. McFadden is expected back for the game Thursday against Dallas, but not as the starter.
"You can't deny Rashad Jennings over the last month of the season," Allen told the San Jose Mercury News. "I think he's earned the right and deserves the right to continue to get his carries and touches and we'll do that."
Allen added that McFadden, who will be an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, will also receive reps upon his return.
