Giants | NYG interested in re-signing Orleans Darkwa

Mon, 05 Mar 2018 21:15:40 -0800

The New York Giants have interest in bringing back impending free-agent RB Orleans Darkwa, according to a source, and it "just depends on the price." It's possible a deal with Darkwa could get done before the start of free agency on Wednesday, March 14.

Fantasy Tip: Darkwa is coming off a breakout season, rushing for more yards in 2017 (751) than he did in his previous four years combined (287). Overall, he averaged a career-best 4.4 yards per carry and also added five touchdowns. Unfortunately, if he remains in New York and the club ends up drafting Saquon Barkley, there would be no reason to select Darkwa in any fantasy league other than as a handcuff.

Giants | Orleans Darkwa bottled up in loss

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 17:37:09 -0800

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa was limited to 29 yards on 10 rushes in Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys and he added two catches for 15 yards on three targets.

Fantasy Tip: The starting job for Darkwa appears to be slipping away, as rookie Wayne Gallman is coming on and gaining a lot of confidence. Darkwa averaged just 2.9 yards per rush in Week 14, while Gallman was good for 4.9 yards per tote. At this point Darkwa is only worth using as a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option in deeper leagues heading into Week 15.

Giants | Orleans Darkwa held in check

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 13:54:20 -0800

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa rushed for 29 yards on 10 carries against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 14. He also caught two passes for 15 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Darkwa has been the starter for most of the season but may be sharing playing time with Wayne Gallman moving forward. He will be facing a tough Philadelphia Eagles defense in Week 15 and could be benched if owners have better options.

Giants | Orleans Darkwa active for Week 14

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 08:58:44 -0800

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (illness) is active for Week 14's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Darkwa has collected just 70 all-purpose yards over the last two games and could lose some playing time to Wayne Gallman and Paul Perkins this afternoon. At best, Darkwa should be considered a low-end RB2 or flex option in deeper fantasy leagues.
