9. Rashad Jennings, RB-NYG
The New York Giants are expected to have a powerhouse offense this season. Why not take the starting running back and laugh all the way to the bank? The problem for Rashad Jennings owners will be free agent acquisition Shane Vereen.
Do not expect Jennings on the field for any key passing downs. Vereen is paid to be the ultimate check down running back and Eli Manning will use him wisely.
Last year was Jennings first season as a featured back and he went down with an injury that cost him six games. With the Giants injury history in recent seasons, I would expect Jennings to be on the injury report more then he is off it.
Don’t let the visions of an epic Giants offensive season fool you into take Jennings to lead your backfield. He will eventually break down and when you watch Vereen replace him on passing downs you will cringe. The worst thing to see as a running back owner is them lose touches to another back.
