2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe PickLast updated on Jul-15-2014 by Rob Warner
After three seasons in Jacksonville as MJD's handcuff, Jennings signed with the Raiders and posted career highs with 733 rushing yards (4.5 YPC) and six TDs on the ground. He also added 36 receptions for 292 yards. The 29-year-old signed a four-year, $10 million contract and is expected to the be the workhorse runner for the Giants. He's solid in pass-protection and has demonstrated reliable ball security during his four-year career, which should keep him in the starting role. Head coach Tom Coughlin has expressed faith in using Jennings on third downs, which should translate into RB2 numbers for fantasy owners. He is averaging a respectable 4.3 yards per carry for his career (387 carries) and is hearing his name called in Round 7 with an 80.65 ADP.
Editor's note: Jennings has never been the featured back and this is his big opportunity. The Giants are not likely to lean on him too hard and keep Andre Williams and David Wilson in the mix since Jennings has had his own injury issues in the past.
