Huddle Up: Perkins is considered the leading candidate for the starting running back and could be on the field for most of the snaps if he shows he can be a receiver out of the backfield and be a pass blocker. Owners probably should consider Perkins as a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in most fantasy leagues.

Huddle Up: Perkins might not break a lot of big runs, but he was the best back the Giants had last year and will open 2017 as the starter. He could sneak into RB2 territory.

Huddle Up: The Giants have been searching for a lead back for a while, so Gallman could carve out a steady role as a rookie. The potential for carries in the red zone makes him worth grabbing in the final rounds of drafts.

Huddle Up: Perkins was clearly the most talented running back on the Giants in his first professional season last year. He was given more opportunities later on and even saw 13 touches in a playoff loss to the Green Bay Packers. Perkins will lose some touches to Shane Vereen and Wayne Gallman, among others, but with Rashad Jennings gone he should still be viewed as a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3.

Huddle Up: Perkins likely is considered the starting running back at this point, but the Giants are believed to be looking for another running back to pair with Perkins. He probably would be used more in the passing game if the Giants added another running back. Perkins probably can be considered a No. 3 running back in most fantasy leagues.

Huddle Up: On the plus side, Perkins led the team in carries and looks to have a shot at opening 2017 as the lead back. He has RB3 potential and is worth keeping an eye on throughout the offseason.

Huddle Up: The Packers have been solid against running backs the last five weeks, and Perkins will probably share the load with Rashad Jennings. He's more of a secondary option in playoff leagues.

Huddle Up: Perkins seems to be grabbing the reins in the backfield, and he could be a flex option in Week 17 against a Washington team that has struggled to defend the run.

Huddle Up: Perkins and Rashad Jennings are a running back by committee, so if you own one you should own the other just in case. Perkins has some good qualities, but consider the Giants just signed Shane Vereen and that backfield is getting crowded.

Huddle Up: Perkins has nine or more touches in four straight outings, but he hasn't done a ton with his snaps. He is averaging just 3.5 yards per carry this season and he has yet to find the end zone on 45 total touches this season. He is only worth rostering in the deepest of fantasy leagues at this point.

Huddle Up: Perkins was outshined by Rashad Jennings, who is finally healthy and had his best game to date. Perkins has some upside, but is only worth starting in deeper fantasy leagues if Jennings gets injured again.

Huddle Up: Perkins had the same amount of total touches as Rashad Jennings, who totaled 39 yards from scrimmages on his 14 touches. Neither player did much to create separation so expect a split in touches heading into Week 10 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Both are nothing more than flex fantasy options in leagues of 12 or more teams.

Huddle Up: It's a bit sad the Giants waited until their bye week to address their league-worst running game, but it is the right move to see what the rookie can do with increased opportunities. Perkins may not be able to singlehandedly resuscitate New York's ground attack, but his ability to deliver big plays may be just what the Giants need to put some bite back into their play-action passing game. Consider Perkins a low-end flex option for now with enough upside to eventually become a RB2.

Huddle Up: The Giants own the NFL's worst rushing attack, so it certainly can't hurt to give Perkins a larger role. The rookie is worth stashing in keeper leagues and deeper formats in case he emerges as the lead back by the end of the year.
Posted: 10/4/2016 1:30pm ET
Huddle Up: Perkins was active for the first time last week but didn't see the field. He showcased his big-play ability by turning a screen pass into a 67-yard gain Monday, though. Perkins has oodles of competition in the New York running back stable, but he might be the most talented and have a larger role by the end of the season. He is worth owning in deeper leagues, and those in need of help at the position could also take a speculative flier on the rookie.
