Giants' Elijhaa Penny: Targeted twice in finale
Penny failed to secure either of this two targets during the Giants' loss to Washington in Week 18.
Penny finished the 2021 season with career-high marks across the board while appearing in all 17 games. He logged 24 carries for 99 yards and one score on the ground while also securing nine of 13 targets for 30 yards and another touchdown. The fullback is set to hit free agency at the end of the league year.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Elijhaa Penny: Minimal involvement in loss
Penny recorded one rush for two yards while catching all four of his targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 34-10 loss to the Eagles.
Penny, like the rest of the Giants' offense, couldn't find much success against a tough Eagles defense. His four catches in the passing game qualified as a team high, but the veteran's production was insignificant at best. As the team's fullback on a struggling offense, there just isn't enough opportunity for Penny to sustain any sort fantasy relevance.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Elijhaa Penny: Finds end zone in loss
Penny recorded one rush for eight yards, while catching his only target for a three-yard touchdown in Sunday's 37-21 loss to the Chargers.
Penny made the most of his two touches, scoring his second touchdown of the year. Penny's role, however, will continue to be especially limited with Saquon Barkley back in the lineup. The 28-year-old will continue to operate as the Giants' fullback and likely find it difficult to produce much in the stat column when the Giants host the Cowboys in Week 15.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Elijhaa Penny: Gets work in relief
Penny recorded five carries for 35 yards in Sunday's 23-16 win over the Raiders. He added two receptions for minus-8 yards.
Devontae Booker dealt with a hip injury late in the game but was seemingly cleared from a major injury after undergoing X-rays, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. However, his absence gave Penny the chance to take over the backfield to close the game in the fourth quarter. Penny was fairly productive in the role, picking up gains of four and 12 yards on a drive that concluded with a field goal to put the Giants up seven. However, the team now heads into a Week 10 bye, which should give both Saquon Barkley (ankle) and Booker the chance to get healthy while leaving Penny with a minimal role.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Elijhaa Penny: Not involved on offense
Penny didn't record any touches in Monday's 20-17 loss to the Chiefs.
Penny played just seven of the Giants' 60 offensive snaps, with most of his work coming on special teams. He's been operating as the Giants' de facto No. 2 running back behind Devontae Booker for the past three weeks with Saquon Barkley (ankle) out, but that hasn't translated into much fantasy value. Barkley could be back in action as soon as Sunday's game against Las Vegas, so Penny's already meager role on offense will likely dwindle further from here.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Elijhaa Penny: Ineffective in limited role
Penny carried nine times for 24 yards in Sunday's 25-3 win over the Panthers.
Penny operated as the Giants' No. 2 running back behind Devontae Booker as Saquon Barkley misses time with an ankle injury. As the team's fullback, Penny will likely revert to a very limited role when Barkley returns, which could be as soon as Week 8.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Elijhaa Penny: Scores a short TD
Penny had three carries for 15 yards and a score Sunday against the Rams. He also caught one of two targets for one yard.
Penny is the team's fullback and will occasionally take a hand-off, but Devontae Booker is firmly established as the starter with Saquon Barkley out.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Elijhaa Penny: Gets a few touches
Penny rushed twice for 16 yards and caught his lone target for seven yards in Sunday's 17-13 preseason loss to the Browns.
Penny not only blocked for Devontae Booker and Corey Clement, but the fullback also got involved with a few touches for himself. Regardless of who starts in the Giants backfield Week 1, when star Saquon Barkley hopefully will be ready to go, Penny is anticipated to serve as their lead blocker, having been the team's fullback since 2018....

Giants' Elijhaa Penny: Shifts to IR
Penny (illness) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Zack Rosenblatt of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Penny had already been ruled out for Week 17, but his shift to IR allowed for the Giants to activate linebacker Kyler Fackrell (lower leg).... See More ... See Less
Giants' Elijhaa Penny: Out Week 17
Penny (illness) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Penny is slated to miss a second consecutive contest with the illness, so his 2020 regular season will end with six carries for 15 yards and two catches on three targets for 20 yards in 14 games.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Elijhaa Penny: Missing from practice
Penny (illness) isn't participating in Thursday's practice, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.
Penny has been away from the Giants since Sunday, when he was made inactive ahead of the team's loss to the Ravens after picking up an illness. The Giants have clarified that the ailment isn't related to COVID-19, but Penny's ongoing absence from practice nonetheless casts some on his availability for the Week 17 matchup with the Cowboys. The fullback has handled a minor role on offense over his 14 appearances this season, playing no more than 14 snaps in any contest.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Elijhaa Penny: Still sidelined by illness
Penny (illness) didn't practice Wednesday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
This illness is not related to COVID-19 but it's clearly no walk in the park, as it also kept Penny out of last week's loss to the Ravens. The fullback and special teams contributor will have two more chances to resume practicing before Sunday's showdown with the Cowboys.... See More ... See Less
