Henry Hynoski, Fullback, New York Giants

Most teams do not value the position of fullback anymore, as this has become a passing league. That is not the case with the rush happy Houston Texans.

Feature back Arian Foster is a beast when healthy and even back up Alfred Blue performed well in Foster’s absence. The running backs in Houston combined for an average of 135.1 yards per game, good for fifth best in the league.

Henry Hynoski comes from a team that also likes to try and run the ball, and at times the New York Giants looked like the punishing Giants of old. Hynoski led the way for Rashad Jennings, Andre Williams and Peyton Hillis. All who at one point in 2014 looked to be solid players, even though Hillis and Jennings are on the back nine of their respective careers.

Hynoski and his 12 career rushes won’t scare people out of the backfield, but he can sure pave a path for whoever is running behind him. If Arian Foster is the one hitting those big holes, it could pay off nicely for the Texans.
