2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Veteran Rashad Jennings is expected to once again be the team’s lead back this season. That may not mean as much as it would for other fantasy running backs, as injuries and the staff’s committee approach at the position have led to only 362 carries during his two seasons with the team. Jennings did manage to play in all 16 games last season and finished with 863 rushing yards and caught 29 balls for another 296 yards with 4 total touchdowns. While his dynamic play-making skills are limited, he was generally efficient and is still the best running back on the roster. At 31 years of age it’s hard to imagine much improvement over last season, leaving the door open for Shane Vereen or more likely rookie Paul Perkins to step into the lead back role. While Jennings’ versatility and experience in the system makes him the odds on favorite for lead back duties, it should be noted that Jennings had never handled more than 163 carries in a season before coming to the Giants and topped out at 195 last year. He is an attractive depth option in PPR leagues at late-round ADP, but relying on him as a weekly starter is not advisable.

News From The Past 90 Days
Giants to stick with RBBC
Paul Perkins, Rashad Jennings expected to split carries
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jan 5, 5:15 pm

New York Giants
Giants OC Mike Sullivan says Paul Perkins and Rashad Jennings complement each other well. Expect the Giants to use both a good amount. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This makes perfect sense, as Jennings has 198 yards rushing on 66 carries since the start of December, while Perkins has 309 yards on 69 attempts over the same five-game stretch. A recent re-commitment to the running game has allowed the Giants to move up to 29th in the league in rushing, so it is fair to say owners should be shying away from this duo in playoff leagues anyway. This news just makes starting either one less attractive than it already was.


Giants not resting anyone in Week 17?
Rashad Jennings: 'Everyone is going to play Sunday'
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Dec 28, 11:00 am

New York Giants
Locked into the No. 5 seed in the NFC, the New York Giants have little but rivalry and pride to play for Sunday against the Washington Redskins. In those situations, many teams rest key starters. It doesn't sound like that's going to be Ben McAdoo's approach in his first season as coach. To ensure his team is "ascending" into the playoffs, the Giants practiced as normal on Tuesday, and there was no talk of resting players. "Yes. Everyone is going to play Sunday," running back Rashad Jennings said, via ESPN.com. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: Despite Rashad Jennings' assurances, fantasy owners need to keep things in perspective. HC Ben McAdoo appears to be keeping his players on a normal schedule but that doesn't mean he will be playing his starters into the second half and risking injury prior to the post season. This type of guessing game makes it very tough to trust any of Big Blue's main cogs this week


Injury Vereen re-injures triceps
Same injury cost him nine games earlier this season
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 19, 6:40 pm

New York Giants
HC Ben McAdoo on RB Shane Vereen: "Shane re-injured his triceps. It's unfortunate. He worked his tail off to get back to where he was." (Art Stapleton on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Vereen only saw five touches in the two games he returned for, so he wasn't exactly being asked to take over his early-season role, which had him working as the lead back at times. He's likely to be placed on IR shortly. Rashad Jennings and Paul Perkins will likely continue sharing work in his absence, but neither back should be expected to emerge as a fantasy starter for the remainder of the season.


Injury Shane Vereen makes quick return to practice
Concussion
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Dec 14, 1:05 pm

New York Giants
Giants running back Shane Vereen was present at practice Wednesday afternoon, just four days after he suffered a concussion. The Giants have not yet released Vereen's participation status for the session, so it is unclear where he stands in the NFL's concussion protocol. But his presence on the field is an encouraging sign for the team as they begin preparation for Sunday's home game against the NFC North-leading Lions. (NJ.com)

FFToday's Take: Shane Vereen's retun to practice this quickly is definitely a good sign of his progress within the concussion protocol. Despite Rashad Jennings' role as the lead horse in New York's backfield owners in PPR leagues may want to pay attention to status reports later in the week as Vereen fits in well with the high efficiency passing scheme being deployed by New York in recent weeks.
