Giants | Orleans Darkwa, Shane Vereen do little

Mon, 14 Dec 2015 22:34:24 -0800

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa carried three times for 10 yards in the Week 14 game against the Miami Dolphins Monday, Dec. 14, and he added a six-yard catch. RB Shane Vereen had one grab for 10 yards and one carry for no gain. RB Andre Williams ran three times for just three yards.

Fantasy Tip: Darkwa appears to slowly (and unofficially) have jumped Vereen and Williams on the depth chart for the second spot on the running backs pecking order. Still, as long as Rashad Jennings is healthy none of the trio is worth a look in most fantasy formats.

Giants | NYG struggle to run the ball

Sun, 06 Dec 2015 19:50:58 -0800

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa ran eight times for a team-high 23 yards in the Week 13 game against the New York Jets, and he had a 10-yard catch. RB Andre Williams rushed six times for 22 yards, while RB Rashad Jennings had five totes for 14 yards and a 19-yard catch. RB Shane Vereen also had four runs for 13 yards and two grabs for seven yards.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants wanted to run the ball more effectively in Week 13, but not one piece of the four-player monster really seemed to be able to build any momentum. The Giants backfield is a fantasy nightmare, so stay away.

Giants | Andre Williams the odd man out?

Sat, 31 Oct 2015 17:10:10 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Williams is the most likely running back to lose touches to RB Orleans Darkwa going forward, but Jordan Raanan of NJ.com believes, the Giants will use a four-back rotation against the New Orleans Saints in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Averaging just 2.9 yards per carry, Williams ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) had little value to begin with, and with Darkwa ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) possibly cutting into his carries, Williams needs to be avoided at FantasyScore.

Giants | Orleans Darkwa turning heads

Wed, 28 Oct 2015 20:54:23 -0700

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa scored the team's only offensive touchdown in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys, and he likely earned more playing time at the expense of RBs Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams. "He certainly did look good out there," head coach Tom Coughlin said after the win. "His touchdown run when he cut back behind the slanting defensive line was really quite an outstanding play."

Fantasy Tip: Darkwa ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) isn't quite worth using in FantasyScore yet, but monitor this situation closely. The former Tulane standout could emerge as a useful option sooner rather than later if he continues to turn heads.

Giants | Orleans Darkwa to see more touches?

Mon, 26 Oct 2015 09:51:31 -0700

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa had played on just two offensive snaps heading into Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys, but he was the leading rusher in the preseason by averaging 4.4 yards per carry. Offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo was non-committal if Darkwa would see more work behind RBs Rashad Jennings, Shane Vereen and Andre Williams.

Fantasy Tip: That question was answered: Darkwa had eight carries for 48 yards and a touchdown against Dallas. While he could continue to be mixed in, the G-Men just have too many mouths to feed for Darkwa to continue to be anything more than a deep sleeper option for FantasyScore users.

Giants | Andre Williams goes nowhere

Sun, 11 Oct 2015 22:11:38 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Williams carried three times for zero yards in the Week 5 game against the San Francisco 49ers and he had no receptions or targets.

Fantasy Tip: Williams ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) was a stud in college, but he has been a bust at the pro level. He is clearly behind Rashad Jennings ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) and Shane Vereen ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) for touches, so avoid him in FantasyScore.

Giants | Andre Williams doesn't do much

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 16:43:16 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Williams carried 11 times for just 35 yards in the Week 4 game against the Buffalo Bills. He did not have any receptions, although he was targeted once.

Fantasy Tip: Williams ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is the short-yardage hammer for the G-Men, but the better FantasyScore option is Rashad Jennings ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) as long as he is healthy.

Giants | Tough sledding for Andre Williams

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 21:25:09 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Williams had 14 carries for 29 yards and a touchdown in a 32-21 win over the Washington Redskins in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Williams ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) led the team in carries, but Rashad Jennings ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) had a team-high 32 yards on 11 carries. Neither back is a great play at FantasyScore with the ground game struggling overall, but Williams' role as the goal-line back gives him more upside.

Giants | Andre Williams leads backfield

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 17:04:23 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Williams had six carries for a team-high 43 yards in a 24-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: While Williams ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) led the team in rushing, Rashad Jennings ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) had a team-high nine carries but managed just 12 yards. At this point, the only back worth considering at FantasyScore appears to be Shane Vereen ($4,600, 9.2% of cap), who has 12 catches through two games.

Giants | Andre Williams could move up

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 09:20:05 -0700

New York Giants RB Andre Williams could overtake RB Rashad Jennings as the lead back sometime this season, maybe even to open the season. Williams has worked on his receiving game this offseason and studied Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell's patience with the ball.

Fantasy Tip: Williams figures to at least be active in the red zone and is in the RB4 conversation.
