Giants' GM says RB Rashad Jennings is a 'bell cow type' running back

Bell cow.
It's just one of those words that perk up the ears of every fantasy owner. And it popped up again Monday thanks to Giants general manager Jerry Reese when he spoke about running back Rashad Jennings @RashadJennings during a Monday radio interview.
"We brought in Rashad Jennings and he's definitely a bell cow type of a running back – he can run it, he can catch it, he can block, he can do everything with it," Reese said.

Fantasy Analysis:

In a perfect world, I don't think the Giants would prefer to not depend on Jennings so heavily. They hope to have David Wilson @4stillRunning available for training camp to create a one-two punch out of the backfield. As far as Wilson goes, Reese said he thinks "all systems are go pretty much for him" to be cleared by the start of training camp. However, we've heard that before; Wilson expected to be cleared for OTAs and that didn't happen. So, I'll believe it when I see it. Wilson underwent spinal fusion surgery in January.
Jennings is going to start for the Giants. We'll have to wait to see if he will have the majority share in a split with Wilson (or Peyton Hillis @thepeytonhillis or rookie Andre Williams) or if he really will be a true three-down player. He showed last season with the Raiders that he can certainly do that job if required. Jennings' current ADP has him as the 28th RB off of the board, which is quite a bargain for a back with his speed, size, and pass-catching prowess. It should be noted that he has never made it through a full 16-game season, however.
