News: Jennings gained 67 yards on 13 carries and seven yards on one reception in Friday's preseason game against the Jets. Impact: Jennings has been perhaps the biggest bright spot in an ugly preseason for Big Blue, flashing a nice combination of explosive running, receiving skills and pass blocking. While he figures to blow Andre Williams out of the water when it comes to third-down work, Jennings may lose some or most of the goal-line carries to the rookie. Jennings figures to lead the way in touches early on, but if he doesn't play well, he may find Williams breathing down his back. That said, Jennings unquestionably boosted his stock with a big preseason, doing more than than enough to secure the lead-back role.(RotoWire, )

News: Jennings gained 17 yards on seven carries in Saturday's preseason game against the Colts. Impact: It was a quiet night for both Jennings and rookie Andre Williams, who ran for 19 yards on eight carries. For a third consecutive week, Jennings started while Williams worked as the clear No. 2 running back. Both figure to play a role in the offense, and Williams may eventually push for the starting job. Jennings figures to see more of the third-down work, but Williams could carve out a goal-line role.(RotoWire, )

News: Jennings ran for 85 yards and a touchdown on five carries in Saturday's preseason game against the Steelers. Impact: Jennings hogged the first-quarter touches, which included a 73-yard touchdown scamper. The long scoring play was largely the result of good blocking, but Jennings did well to make a defender miss, and then outrun the entire Pittsburgh defense. Andre Williams looked sharp in the second quarter and has seemingly already staked his claim to the top backup role. It looks like Williams will be a major part of the offense, but Jennings remains the likely starter.(RotoWire, )
