Rashad Jennings: Released by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jennings was released by the Giants on Monday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

Jennings had a disappointing season in 2016. He entered the campaign as the Giants' top running back but produced just 794 total yards while having the lowest yards per catch of his career and the lowest yards per carry average since joining the Giants in 2014. His release gives the Giants an extra $2.5 million in cap space and leaves Paul Perkins and Shane Vereen as the team's top running backs. Jennings is now free to sign with any team.

Giants' Rashad Jennings: Clear second fiddle in wild-card loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings totaled 29 yards on five rushes and secured his only target for four yards in Sunday's 38-13 wild-card loss to the Packers.

The veteran tailback was actually more effective than starter Paul Perkins, but received half of the latter's rushing touches, while also seeing two less targets in the passing game. After opening the 2016 campaign as the clear-cut starter, Jennings eventually gave way to his rookie counterpart, who came on strong over the last four games of the season in expanded opportunity. Jennings thus finishes his third Giants season with the lowest yardage total (593) and YPC (3.3) of his New York tenure.

Giants' Rashad Jennings: Finds end zone in win over Redskins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings carried 18 times for 52 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's game against the Redskins. He also caught his only target for five yards in the 19-10 victory.

Jennings plowed into the end zone from two yards out in the second quarter and totaled his second-highest number of carries this season as the Giants ground out a win to eliminate the Redskins from postseason contention. While he was able to produce a useful day from a fantasy perspective, Jennings saw Paul Perkins produce 102 rushing yards on 21 carries as the Giants utilized both of their backs to help seal the win. Jennings continues to lose touches to the rookie, but the Giants seem likely to lean on both players in the postseason.

Giants' Rashad Jennings: Posts 44 yards rushing as secondary backfield option in Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings gained 44 yards on nine rushes and secured four of five targets for seven yards in Thursday's 24-19 loss to the Eagles. He also fumbled once but it was recovered.

The veteran tailback gave way to Paul Perkins as the lead runner, but did provide much better returns than he'd mustered against the Lions just four days earlier. Jennings' 4.9 YPC figure was his best since back on Nov. 14 versus the Bengals. While Perkins has definitely begun to make his presence felt in the Giants running attack, Jennings still figures in for a relatively solid role next week against the Redskins' vulnerable run defense.

Giants' Rashad Jennings: Struggles to produce versus Lions
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jennings carried 18 times for just 38 yards in Sunday's game against the Lions. He was not targeted through the air in the 17-6 win.

Jennings tied his second-highest total of carries this season, but he struggled to produce and finished with an unimpressive average of 2.1 yards per carry. Meanwhile, Paul Perkins gained 56 yards on just 11 carries and was in the game in some red zone situations. Jennings and Perkins should continue to split carries next week against the Eagles, with the former carrying the slight edge in touches of late. However, if he continues to struggle, he could see his role diminish.
