Rashad Jennings rushed 18 times for 52 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 17 win over the Redskins.

Jennings added a five-yard catch. Despite the heavy workload, Jennings actually got out-touched and out-produced by rookie Paul Perkins. That's been a theme in recent weeks. Perkins could be the Giants' feature back in the Wild Card round, though some sort of committee will still be employed.
Jan 1 - 8:33 PM

Rashad Jennings said the Giants are going to "put it all out there" Week 17 against the Redskins.

"It’s a privilege to play this game and go out every single week," Jennings said. "That’s how we’re going to do it this weekend." Landon Collins added the team will put "the pedal to the metal." Ben McAdoo clearly has his players coached up well on what to say, but it still seems unlikely Eli Manning and Odell Beckham play a full complement of snaps in what is, despite the party line, a meaningless game.

Rashad Jennings rushed nine times for 44 yards and caught 4-of-5 passes for seven yards in Week 16 against the Eagles.

Jennings remained in a timeshare with Paul Perkins. He continued to get outplayed, but managed over 4.0 YPC for the first time since Week 12. Jennings won't be a recommended fantasy option for the Giants' season-finale against Washington.

Rashad Jennings rushed 18 times for 38 yards in the Giants' Week 15 win over the Lions.

Jennings and Paul Perkins each saw eight carries in the first half, but Jennings was the one getting the rock in the second half, out-carrying Perkins 18-11 at the end of the day. Perkins, however, severely out-played him, rushing for 56 yards to Jennings' 38. Jennings will be an RB3 next week at the Eagles.

Rashad Jennings had 15 carries for 45 yards and two catches for 12 yards in Week 14 against the Cowboys.

Jennings played in a timeshare with Paul Perkins. He saw more third-down snaps after Shane Vereen (concussion) left in the first half but failed to do anything. Jennings has rushed for under 60 yards in three straight games. He should be avoided for a Week 15 matchup with the Lions.

Rashad Jennings rushed six times for 19 yards and caught all six of his targets for 34 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Giants' Week 13 loss to the Steelers.

Jennings did nothing on the ground and was actually given one less carry than Paul Perkins. However, he played a substantial role in the passing game by providing a season-high six catches. Jennings scored his only touchdown on a 13-yard screen pass from Eli Manning about midway through the third quarter. He was fortunate the play held up as Ereck Flowers was clearly guilty of holding. Jennings’ six carries were a season-low. With Perkins cutting into his workload, Jennings won’t be more than an RB3 next week against the Cowboys.

Rashad Jennings rushed 15 times for 55 yards in the Giants' Week 12 win over the Browns.

Jennings "added" two catches for four yards. If you throw out the fact that the Giants won 27-13 to send Cleveland to 0-12, it was an extremely disappointing performance from Ben McAdoo's offense against one of the league's worst defenses. Cleveland entered the afternoon a distant 31st in rushing yards allowed, but a struggling Eli Manning made it hard for the G-Men to sustain drives. Jennings will be a low-end RB2 against the Steelers in Week 13.

Rashad Jennings played 47-of-67 (70%) snaps Week 11 against the Bears.

After closing out the Week 10 win with some strong running in the fourth quarter, Jennings was rewarded with a workhorse role against the Bears. He out-touched Paul Perkins 26-to-6 and out-snapped him 47-to-20. Seemingly entrenched as the lead back, Jennings will be an upside RB2 in a great matchup against the Browns this week.

Rashad Jennings rushed 21 times for 85 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 11 win over the Bears, adding five receptions for 44 additional yards.

Jennings' strong Week 10 carried over in the form of his most total yards of the season. There was no timeshare with Paul Perkins, with Jennings out-touching his rookie teammate 26-6. Perkins can provide a spark as a change of pace, but the Giants have been wise to finally commit to Jennings on all three downs. He'll be a high-upside RB2 against the Browns' pathetic run defense in Week 12.

Rashad Jennings rushed 15 times for 87 yards and caught 3-of-6 targets for 22 yards in the Giants' 21-20, Week 10 win over the Bengals.

The 87 rushing yards set a new season-high for Jennings and was his first time over 27 yards since Week 1. His long run of 25 yards Monday night was also Jennings' longest gain of the season, which tells us all we really need to know about how this Giants' running game has been performing this season. New York entered Monday dead last in rushing, but climbed to No. 31 with this effort. Jennings played 45-of-75 snaps, compared to 30 for rookie Paul Perkins, but Jennings' work late in the game was really impressive. The Giants got the ball back, up one, with 3:01 left in regulation, and Jennings ripped off a number of first-down runs to salt the clock down to zero. The performance probably buys him another week atop the depth chart heading into a Week 11 home game against the Bears.

Rashad Jennings rushed 11 times for 26 yards and caught three passes for 13 yards in Week 9 against the Eagles.

Jennings started, but rotated evenly with Paul Perkins. He was the slightly less effective back, though both didn't do anything. Jennings is still the favorite for red-zone work, but he's going to remain in a committee going forward. Perkins has the upside to overtake Jennings.
Sun, Nov 6, 2016 05:26:00 PM

Rashad Jennings rushed 13 times for 25 yards and a touchdown and caught 2-of-3 targets for 24 yards Week 7 against the Rams.

Jennings saved his fantasy day with a short touchdown run in the fourth quarter, but he was terrible most of the game. Not coincidentally, the Giants' one good drive came with Paul Perkins handling the majority of the work. The rookie, of course, was nowhere to be found in the second half. Jennings is averaging 2.7 yards a carry this season. His role could be dramatically reduced coming out of the bye week.
Sun, Oct 23, 2016 01:42:00 PM

Rashad Jennings collected 15 yards on nine carries while catching all four of his targets for 20 yards Sunday in the Giants' Week 6 win over the Ravens.

Jennings looked healthy on Sunday but the Giants showed no interest in running the ball. They threw it 46 times compared to just 17 rushing attempts. On the rare occasions when Jennings was called upon, he was mostly ineffective. He rushed five times for only five yards in the second half. Jennings’ fantasy prospects against the Rams in Week 7 are minimal at best.

Rashad Jennings (thumb) is active for Week 6 against the Ravens.

As expected. Jennings is back after missing the last three games with a thumb injury that prevented him from blocking or catching passes. CB Eli Apple, S Nat Berhe, QB Josh Johnson, WR Tavarres King, OT Marshall Newhouse, LB Deontae Skinner and S Darian Thompson round out the Giants' Week 6 inactives. Dwayne Harris (toe), Devon Kennard (concussion), Jason Pierre-Paul (groin) and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (groin) are all active.
