RISER – Rashad Jennings (RB, NYG)
In case you haven’t been following them closely, the Giants have been terrible at running the football. This hasn’t just been a 2016 occurrence, as they’ve failed to provide a serviceable contemporary to the passing game in years. They currently rank 31st in the league at rushing yards per game, but there’s been recent signs that a change could be on the way.
Rashad Jennings, the veteran back who arrived in New York from Oakland two seasons ago, has provided a pair of consecutive promising performances these past two weeks. While this was a great sign for the football team, it’s an even better sign for the fantasy football managers that feature him on their respective teams. Jennings has provided significant value, and with the Cleveland Browns on the horizon, he could be in for a third consecutive strong week.
Those who feature Jennings should confidently start him this week, with the notion that one more productive week could make him a full-fledged must-start heading into the fantasy football playoffs.
