Raiders RB Rashad Jennings' hamstring injury not serious

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen opted to keep running back Rashad Jennings @RashadJennings out of the game last week. Jennings "wanted to keep playing" according to Allen. Jennings spent the entire 2011 season on injured reserve and finished the 2012 season on IR as well.

Fantasy Analysis:

Jennings has a long, established history of injuries. Sitting him was likely the right decision. In Week 4, the fifth-year back managed to catch eight passes for 71 yards to go along with 45 rushing yards. That kind of production would be huge if it could be relied upon. Unfortunately, this is Jennings we're talking about. Enjoy him while he can play in place of Darren McFadden @dmcfadden20, but don't expect him to hold up much longer. Marcel Reece @CelReece45 would see more playing time if Jennings is unable to give it a full-go.
