Giants | Orleans Darkwa hits incentive

Mon, 01 Jan 2018 08:20:48 -0800

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa rushed for 154 yards in Week 17 to hit 750 rushing yards on the season for a $200,000 incentive.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants could see a big overhaul on offense in the offseason, and it's unknown if Darkwa will be in their plans. He has shown flashes to give him some RB4 viability if he can at least be part of a committee next season.

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.

Giants | Orleans Darkwa likely to play

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 06:29:35 -0800

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (illness) is expected to play in Week 14's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Darkwa returned to practice on a limited basis Friday, Dec. 8, and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He should be viewed as nothing more than a low-end RB2 or flex option in most fantasy leagues, although it remains to be seen if the head coaching change will impact his role in the Giants' offense.

Giants | Orleans Darkwa limited in practice

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 14:25:02 -0800

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (illness) was listed as a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 8, and he is considered questionable for Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Darkwa is a little under the weather, while Wayne Gallman (hip) was removed from the injury report and Paul Perkins is also available. There is a new regime with the G-Men, too, so perhaps they'll go another way. Darkwa's questionable status, the health of the others and the new coaching staff make Darkwa a risky fantasy proposition on Sunday.

Giants | Orleans Darkwa 50-50 for Week 14

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 11:42:21 -0800

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (illness) is listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Darkwa returned to practice Friday after sitting out Thursday, suggesting he is going to be fine to go Sunday. The 25-year-old back has seen double-digit carries in each of his last five games, but he is an average NFL talent running behind a poor line, so he doesn't possess a ton of fantasy. In most leagues, he's a RB3/flex option at best.

Giants | No practice for Orleans Darkwa

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 11:46:27 -0800

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (illness) was not able to practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: The exact illness wasn't disclosed, but players are usually able to recover from sickness in time for games. Darkwa has scored twice in two weeks, but he is only averaging 45.3 rushing yards per game over that span. View him as a low-end RB2 or flex.
