New York Giants RB Elijhaa Penny rushed three times for 15 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Rams and he added one catch for a yard on two targets.
Huddle Up: The touchdown, the only one of the day for New York, was nice, but he needs more targets to be a worthwhile fantasy option even in deeper leagues. The Giants host the Carolina Panthers in Week 7.

New York Giants RBs Jon Hilliman and Elijhaa Penny are next up on the depth chart heading into Week 6 against the New England Patriots for the game Thursday, Oct. 10 with both RBs Saquon Barkley (ankle) and Wayne Gallman (concussion) ruled out.
Huddle Up: Hilliman has 19 attempts for 53 yards, or 2.8 yards per attempt, in two games so far this season, while Penny has eight runs for 30 yards to date. Both players might see their fair share of touches, but they're fantasy worthy only in the very deepest of leagues. It's probably better just to avoid the situation altogether and focus on Sunday options, as the Patriots defense has been stout.

Arizona Cardinals RB Elijhaa Penny rushed 10 times for 45 yards in Week 15 against the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: Penny saw a bump on responsibilities with Adrian Peterson (neck) sidelined and he had a better average per carry than starter Kerwynn Williams (3.6 yards per rush). The two are likely to split the workload down the stretch, as head coach Bruce Arians looks for the right combination in the team's last two games.

Arizona Cardinals RB Elijhaa Penny is expected to have a role in the offense in Week 2 against the Indianapolis Colts with RB David Johnson (wrist) on the shelf.
Huddle Up: Penny isn't a player to target for fantasy purposes just yet, as long as Andre Ellington, Chris Johnson and Kerwynn Williams are all healthy and also in the mix. However, Penny is worth monitoring.
