2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Penny is re-signing an undisclosed contract with the Giants, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
ANALYSIS
Penny rushed seven times for 25 yards across 14 games with the Giants last season. He also caught eight passes for 50 yards. The 6-foot-2, 234-pound fullback will make most of his impact in 2019 as a blocker for lead running back Saquon Barkley.
