  • Penny took two carries for two yards and couldn't haul in his only target during Sunday's 31-13 loss to the Packers. Penny was deployed on two third downs and converted on one of them while being stuffed on the other. The 26-year-old isn't the concern of fantasy owners, but he's a worthy real-life value in short-yardage situations.

  • Penny had one carry for three yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions. Penny played only 10 offensive snaps and has been minimally involved in the offense during games in which Saquon Barkley is healthy. The fullback is typically used on special teams but sees occasional work as a backfield blocker.

  • Penny could be in store for an elevated role in the Giants' game plan Thursday against the Patriots with neither Saquon Barkley (ankle) nor Wayne Gallman (concussion) expected to be available to play, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports. Barkley was a limited participant in practice Tuesday while Gallman was held out of the session entirely, but with the Giants facing a quick turnaround for their Week 6 matchup, the team will likely err on the side of caution with its franchise back and hold him out for a third straight contest. If that's the case, the Giants will count Penny and Jon Hilliman as the lone healthy backfield options on the 53-man roster, though the team would almost certainly promote Austin Walter from the practice squad before Thursday to provide additional depth. Though he's listed as a fullback, Penny spent the first two years in the pro ranks as a tailback and owns a 3.9 yards-per-carry mark over 46 career totes. Considering that Hilliman is an undrafted rookie who has delivered underwhelming production to date, it wouldn't be surprising if the Giants ultimately chose to lean more heavily on Penny as Thursday's contest unfolds.

  • Penny had three carries for 12 yards against the Redskins on Sunday. Normally slotted at fullback, Penny saw some work at running back after Jon Hilliman fumbled. It's possible the Giants stick with Hilliman or bring in another back this week, but Penny could see more carries behind Wayne Gallman in Week 5 while Saquon Barkley recovers from an ankle injury.

  • Penny is re-signing an undisclosed contract with the Giants, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. Penny rushed seven times for 25 yards across 14 games with the Giants last season. He also caught eight passes for 50 yards. The 6-foot-2, 234-pound fullback will make most of his impact in 2019 as a blocker for lead running back Saquon Barkley.
