Buying Low- Rashad Jennings

Rashad Jennings was on the end of double digit carries for the fifth time in six weeks Sunday against the Titans.

Analysis: Just one week after a three carry game Rashad Jennings carried the rock 16 times for 43 rushing yards and 1 touchdown. With Maurice Jones-Drew still out for a few weeks it appears the Jags will give the majority of the touches to Jennings despite his 2.8 yards per carry average this year. Jennings is having an extremely underwhelming season as he receives yet another opportunity to prove to the NFL he can be a feature back.

Although Rashad Jennings has not played well this year he did carry the rock 16 times Sunday which merits a fantasy pick-up at least until MJD returns in a few weeks. The Jags have Buffalo and then the New York Jets in the next two weeks, so the Jacksonville running game should not disappear in second half blow outs. It really is hard to pass on a back who should receive 15 carries next week and potential goal line carries but nothing about his play has been impressive thus far. Pick Jennings up at your own risk or to prevent desperate owners starting him against you next week because he has “potential” for a big fantasy game.
