2015 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Dec-06-2015 by Shawn Childs


Week 13 DFS Update (12/5): Jennings scored his only rushing TD in Week 1. He has fewer than 65 rushing in each game this year while gaining only 3.8 YPC. He is averaging only 12 touches per game with low value in the passing game (21 catches) as well. The Jets are one of the better teams in the league vs. the run so this low glimmer of hope is fading with each word I write.

In Week 3, Jennings ran for 176 yards and a touchdown on 34 carries. That was the high point of his season. A bad ankle sprain cost him five games and limited him in two others. Rashad had six games with 20 touches or more. He averaged 3.8 yards per carry, which was a step back from 2013 (4.5 YPC). His lack of success was partly due to poor O-line play. He's a talented player but one with injury risk. Plus, Shane Vereen will cut into his receiving numbers. Jennings will even lose some carries at the goal line to Andre Williams. Even if healthy for a full season, I think Jennings will get only 225 touches, about 1,000 total yards, 30 catches and a small handful of TDs. That puts him in low-end RB2 territory.
