$Signed a one-year, $645,000 contract with the Giants in March of 2019.
Season-high touches in loss
FBNew York Giants
October 11, 2019
Penny rushed three times for six yards during Thursday's 35-14 loss to the Patriots. He also caught one of two targets but did not gain any receiving yards.
Penny's involvement in New York's offense was elevated Thursday due to Saquon Barkley (ankle) and Wayne Gallman (concussion) both being inactive. With the Giants hoping for at least one of those two running backs to return Week 7, Penny is unlikely to see his touches increase going forward.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
After residing on the Cardinals' practice squad in 2016, Penny emerged from last preseason with a roster spot, but it didn't translate to many snaps after David Johnson's dislocated wrist in Week 1. Instead, he earned no more than eight offensive reps in a given game until Week 15. Entering that contest with just seven touches on the year, he proceeded to churn out 26 rushes for 108 yards and one touchdown and two receptions (on four targets) for 14 yards in the final three outings. This offseason, coach Bruce Arians retired, and the new staff led by Steve Wilks has said the 6-2, 234-pound Penny will transition from running back to fullback, H-back and tight end. Considering his lack of production as a receiver, Penny may not garner more than sporadic short-yardage runs in 2018. To get even those looks, though, he likely will have to beat out a far more experienced player (Derrick Coleman) for one spot.
With four known entities in front of him on the running back depth chart, Penny will be hard pressed to land a spot on the final 53-man roster. More than likely, the practice squad awaits for the second-year pro.
