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

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.

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.

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.

Huddle Up: 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.

Huddle Up: 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.

Huddle Up: 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.

Huddle Up: 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.
