Rashad Jennings solid fill-in fantasy performance on Sunday

Al Bello

The Raiders running back stepped right back into a featured role for the team in Week 10. We break down the fantasy implications.

Oakland Raiders running back Rashad Jennings carried the ball 20 times for 88 yards and caught two passes for 19 yards in the team's 24-20 loss to the New York Giants in Week 10.

Fantasy impact: Jennings has done very well for the Raiders when given the opportunity to start in place of the oft-injured Darren McFadden. McFadden's hamstring ailment is to the same leg as the one that caused him to miss action earlier this season.

That means Jennings might be starting down the stretch for the Raiders. Fantasy owners who were able to scoop him up on the waiver wire will reap the benefits of that as finding a starting running back this late in the season is a rarity and a prized commodity.

That said, the Raiders passing game will need be to better than it was against the Giants going forward if the running game is to remain effective.
