Jennings gained 55 yards on 15 carries and added another four yards while catching both of his targets in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Jennings was presented with a matchup against one of the worst run defenses in the NFL, but he only managed a long gain of 11 yards en route to an average of 3.7 yards per carry on the day. His fantasy stock had been trending up after he compiled his two best back-to-back performances heading into this game, so the results likely came as something of a disappointment for his owners. Jennings and company will face a Steelers defense that has been generous to opposing back fields next week, but in a game that could trend pass-heavy and with Paul Perkins (11 touches) still in the picture, he is not guaranteed to see a full allotment of touches.

Jennings had 21 carries for 85 yards and a touchdown Sunday and caught five passes for 44 more yards.

EDGE Analysis

Jennings did most of his damage in the first half, running well and breaking tackles. His YPC average (4.0) was dragged down by telegraphed running plays into the teeth of the defense during the second half. Jennings has been effective the last two games, and given his strong pass protection skills, seems to have maintained the lion's share of the halfback job over rookie Paul Perkins.

Jennings rushed 15 times for 87 yards and caught three passes (on six targets) for 22 yards in Monday night's win over the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Jennings did his work in chunks Monday night, when he reeled off runs of 24 and 25 yards during the second half to clinch a season high in rushing yards. That came despite rookie Paul Perkins getting a decent amount of work during the first half, but with a 5.8-yard rushing average compared to Perkins' 3.4, Jennings proved the superior option over the game's entirety. He also was the team's fourth-leading receiver Monday, when he caught at least three passes for the third time over New York's current four-game winning streak. With 109 total yards of offense Monday, Jennings enters his Week 11 matchup against the Bears with a head full of steam.

Jennings had 11 carries for 26 yards and caught all three of his targets for 13 yards against the Eagles Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

His backup, Paul Perkins, also had 11 carries and three targets and fared only slightly better. At this point, it's a 50/50 timeshare and one that's trending in the wrong direction for Jennings.

Jennings is still likely to be the Giants starter, but Paul Perkins (and possibly Bobby Rainey) are likely, ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's hard to say how actionable this vague indication is in the short term, but if you were deciding between Jennings and another back on the bye week, you might want to look elsewhere.

Jennings carried 13 times for 25 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 17-10 win over the Rams. He also caught two of three targets for an additional 24 yards.

EDGE Analysis

It was tough sledding on the ground for Jennings, who averaged 1.9 yards per carry, but a modest contribution in the passing game and a short fourth quarter touchdown salvaged his day from a fantasy perspective and won his team the game. Jennings increased his involvement a week after returning from a three-week absence, and he will use the upcoming bye to get completely healthy before the Week 9 matchup with the Eagles.

Jennings (thumb) turned nine carries into 15 yards and four receptions into 20 yards during Sunday's victory against the Ravens.

EDGE Analysis

In his first game action since Week 2, Jennings proved that he could handle a decent workload, leading all Giants running backs in rushes and targets (four). The offense was lacking in balance, though, as Eli Manning dropped back 47 times versus 17 total runs, which served to hinder Jennings' effectiveness. As evidence, his 1.7 YPC was his worst mark since Week 2 of last season (1.3) and only his second game below 2.0 YPC in three seasons with the Giants. He'll look to bounce back next Sunday against the Rams' fifth-worst run defense (entering Week 6).

Jennings (thumb) is active for Sunday's game against Baltimore, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jennings was set to test his hand in pregame warmups and it must have gone well. Head coach Ben McAdoo said Wednesday that he expected Jennings, who was unable to practice fully this week, to play, which would put a big hit to Orleans Darkwa's fantasy upside, though Bobby Rainey is likely to keep getting snaps on passing downs.

Jennings (thumb) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Baltimore, Art Stapleton of The Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jennings was listed as limited at every practice for a fourth straight week, still unable to participate in full. However, head coach Ben McAdoo said Wednesday he expects Jennings to play, which marks a departure from the coach's more evasive comments in previous weeks. Owners should still check back prior to Sunday's 1:00 p.m. kickoff, as Jennings' absence has already lingered longer than expected. If Jennings does return, Orleans Darkwa will see his role drastically reduced, whereas Bobby Rainey should remain a fixture on passing downs. The Ravens make for a difficult matchup, allowing just 3.6 yards per carry and 76 rushing yards per game.
