Rashad Jennings

Old Team: Oakland Raiders

New Team: New York Giants


It appeared from day one of the Rashad Jennings experiment that the Giants were unsure of the future of now-departed David Wilson, therefore were prepared to enter 2014 with the former Raiders and Jaguars RB as their primary ball-carrier. Now that Wilson is gone and rookie Andre Williams appears to be the No. 2 ahead of journeyman Peyton Hillis, fantasy owners are beginning to fall in love with Jennings.

Ranked between 15-20 by most services, the big 6’1″, 230-pound back is being selected as a lower-tier No. 1 RB, upper No. 2, or even fantastic flex option. You can expect a 20-25 touch three down producer in Jennings but also provide insurance, as he has never played 16 games and has missed 27 games (entire 2011 season) over a five year career. Grab him in the 5th if he’s there.
