2016 FANTASY FOOTBALL ISSUES: RASHAD JENNINGS CAN BE BUMPED UP WITH LESS CLUTTER IN GIANTS BACKFIELD

The release of power back Andre Williams the other day by the New York Giants was far from a shock.  Averaging a pathetic 2.9 yards per carry in two NFL seasons despite a Mount Olympus frame, Williams was nothing but a liability on the field.  His release does however help the fantasy football outlook on veteran back Rashad Jennings who already was slated to be the starter but who now has less competition for touches.  What we also found out this summer was that rookie Paul Perkins has a lot to learn before he can get on the field and so that leaves just receiving back Shane Vereen and seldem-used backups Orleans Darkwa and Bobby Rainey.  As a result, there is no shock that there are reports indicating Jennings will be the goal-line back to go with his other first and second down duties.  Jennings has proved himself to be a very capable runner and receiver going back to his Jacksonville Jaguars days and only injuries have held him back.  There is not a huge amount of wear and year on Jennings either despite an advancing age so he is spry enough to be a solid RB 2 in PPR formats and a top backup in standard.  Push him up your cheat sheets.
