Giants | Orleans Darkwa to have big role

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 06:08:03 -0700

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa is likely to split the load with RB Bobby Rainey in Week 4 with RB Rashad Jennings (thumb) likely out.

Fantasy Tip: Darkwa rushed 10 times for 53 yards and a score last week. He should see the majority of carries between the tackles, but he faces a stout Minnesota Vikings defense. He's a flex option this week in fantasy.

Giants | Orleans Darkwa playing catch-up

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 19:21:53 -0700

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (leg) missed the entire spring practice sessions due to a lower leg injury, and that set him back in the pecking order among the team's tailbacks. He is expected to battle RB Andre Williams for the No. 3 job, while RB Bobby Rainey is also in the mix. The team invested a fifth round pick on RB Paul Perkins, so he is expected to make the team, too.

Fantasy Tip: The winner of the No. 3 job will be behind Rashad Jennings and Shane Vereen on the depth chart, so they can mostly be avoided in all fantasy leagues initially.

Giants | Andre Williams fighting for spot?

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 13:35:03 -0700

New York Giants RBs Andre Williams and Orleans Darkwa are likely competing with each other for a roster spot, according to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post.

Fantasy Tip: Williams hasn't played to his full potential in his first two seasons, but he did have a solid rookie campaign two years ago. Darkwa hasn't really done much in New York, and he may be the odd man out. Williams is the more intriguing fantasy option, but even he should be viewed as a late-round flier.

Giants | Victor Cruz taking it slow

Mon, 23 May 2016 09:56:46 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee, calf) and RB Orleans Darkwa (leg) were both working on the side with trainers during practice Monday, May 23. The Giants continue to take it slow with Cruz.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz's major knee injury is concerning. He's played in only six games in the last two years and will probably never be the same receiver he once was. The Giants drafted Sterling Shepard to make an immediate impact in the passing game because of the uncertainty surrounding Cruz. Consider Cruz a very risky fantasy asset moving forward as a late-round flier.

Giants | Orleans Darkwa questionable

Sat, 19 Dec 2015 08:24:27 -0800

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (illness) has been added to the injury report for the Week 15 game against the Carolina Panthers and is listed as questionable because of an illness.

Fantasy Tip: Darkwa ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has received a handful of carries over the last few games and probable would not receive a bigger role if he is active, so owners should look for other options.
