Rashad Jennings set to start for Giants?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

When the Giants signed running back Rashad Jennings this summer, it was with the intention of making him their workhorse back, ESPN reports. His ability to run between the tackles as well as catch passes makes him the most versatile back on their roster. 

However, that was before they drafted Andre Williams and expected David Wilson to return. ESPN believes Wilson could push Jennings for carries and catches once he's cleared and has impressed the coaches enough with his abilities. If he's healthy he'll play a role.

Williams could also develop as a rushing downs type of back though he'll have to make strides in training camp first.

Reese: Rashad Jennings a bell cow
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Giants general manager Jerry Reese is excited about running back Rashad Jennings this season, reports CBS radio station WFAN in New York.

"We brought in Rashad Jennings, and he's definitely a bell cow type of a running back – he can run it, he can catch it, he can block, he can do everything with it," Reese said.

Giants to use Rashad Jennings in screen game
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Giants quarterback Eli Manning will be throwing screens this year, and running back Rashad Jennings will be the prime recipient, reports the New York Post.

"He's someone I have a tremendous amount of respect for," offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo said. "I think he has a nice skill set for the position."

Jennings is expected to start for the Giants, but he could receive some competition for touches from rookie Andre Williams and David Wilson, if he's healthy from last year's neck injury.

Giants add RB Andre Williams in Round 4
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

With the 113th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the New York Giants selected running back Andre Williams from Boston College.

Williams is a tough physical back that had some issues in receiving drills at the combine, which is why his draft stock took a hit. However, he rushed for 2,177 yards and 18 touchdowns in 2013, averaging 6.1 yards per carry. He also broke out for a 339-yard, two-touchdown performance on the ground against N.C. State.

The Giants currently have Rashad Jennings, Peyton Hillis and David Wilson under contract.

Rashad Jennings a good fit for Giants
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Giants signed running back Rashad Jennings to a four-year deal worth $14 million, and coach Tom Coughlin expects him to be worth the money.

Coughlin said at the NFL owners meeting that Jennings is a good fit for what the Giants want to do on offense this year.

"I think he's very consistent," Coughlin said. "He has a great attitude. The more you looked the better you liked. First and second down, he's outstanding. Coming out of the backfield, he can catch the ball. He's a good screen runner. Can he go the distance? Boom, there he goes 80 (yards). You can see that. I just think he's a good football player that will be a very, very solid and impactful guy in our offense."
