    Free-agent RB Orleans Darkwa (Giants) is visiting the New England Patriots Monday, April 9, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Darkwa has some RB5 viability, and he could be as high as an RB3 in the right situation.

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

    New York Giants impending free-agent RB Orleans Darkwa is a player the Giants may try to re-sign before the start of free agency, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jordan Raanan.

    Huddle Up: Darkwa took over the starting job during the second half of the season and finished with 751 yards and five touchdowns. He may not be the starter if he re-signs with the Giants but could still be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy running back.

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.
