News: Jennings had 18 carries for 64 rushing yards and four catches on four targets for 45 receiving yards, but he lost a costly fumble late in Sunday's 25-14 loss to the Cardinals. Impact: The overall yardage totals were good, but Jennings was benched in favor of rookie Andre Williams after the fumble, though he came back in a few plays later when Williams dropped a pass. Jennings is still the team's undisputed starting back, and he has four receptions in each game this season. Williams could get a few more looks if Jennings can't hold onto the football, but given Williams' deficiencies in pass protection and poor receiving skills, it's hard to see him as more than Jennings' complement. Up next for both is a tough matchup in Week 3 against the Texans.(RotoWire, )

News: Jennings had 16 carries for 46 yards and a touchdown, while adding four receptions for 50 yards, in Monday's 35-14 loss to the Lions. Impact: Jennings turned in a strong fantasy game, despite recording just 2.9 yards per carry. According to Nathan Jahnke of Pro Football Focus, Jennings played 42 snaps while Andre Williams logged 20. The snap split was about what was expected, yet the workload division was still encouraging for Jennings' owners, as the veteran handled the goal-line carries. That had been a major question heading into the game, with both Williams and Jennings weighing in around 230 pounds. Also worth noting is that Jennings ran better than the stats indicate, as his teammates didn't play particularly well against a talented Detroit defensive line.(RotoWire, )
