New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (back) was limited in practice all week and is probable for Week 9.
Fantasy Tip: Darkwa ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) needs to show us more before we're comfortable using a FantasyScore flyer on him against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (tailbone) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 5.
Fantasy Tip: Rashad Jennings proved to still be the top running back for the Giants last week, at least on the ground. Darkwa ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is too risky to consider on FantasyScore as he has Jennings, Andre Williams and Shane Vereen to compete with.

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (tailbone) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 4.
Fantasy Tip: Darkwa ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) still has much to prove in the NFL, and he still has Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams to compete with on the ground. It's safer to stay away from Darkwa on FantasyScore considering his lack of experience and the crowded backfield.

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (tailbone) might not be able to practice Wednesday, Nov. 4, after suffering a badly bruised tailbone in the Week 8 loss against the New Orleans Saints. However, he is still hopeful of playing in Week 9.
Fantasy Tip: Darkwa ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has a little bit of upside, but he needs to be at least 100 percent health first. Let him prove his health in a full game without any setbacks before trusting him in FantasyScore again.

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (back) is listed as questionable to return to Week 8's game against the New Orleans Saints because of a back injury.

New York Giants RB Andre Williams is the most likely running back to lose touches to RB Orleans Darkwa going forward, but Jordan Raanan of NJ.com believes, the Giants will use a four-back rotation against the New Orleans Saints in Week 8.
Fantasy Tip: Averaging just 2.9 yards per carry, Williams ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) had little value to begin with, and with Darkwa ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) possibly cutting into his carries, Williams needs to be avoided at FantasyScore.

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa scored the team's only offensive touchdown in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys, and he likely earned more playing time at the expense of RBs Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams. "He certainly did look good out there," head coach Tom Coughlin said after the win. "His touchdown run when he cut back behind the slanting defensive line was really quite an outstanding play."
Fantasy Tip: Darkwa ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) isn't quite worth using in FantasyScore yet, but monitor this situation closely. The former Tulane standout could emerge as a useful option sooner rather than later if he continues to turn heads.

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa had played on just two offensive snaps heading into Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys, but he was the leading rusher in the preseason by averaging 4.4 yards per carry. Offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo was non-committal if Darkwa would see more work behind RBs Rashad Jennings, Shane Vereen and Andre Williams.
Fantasy Tip: That question was answered: Darkwa had eight carries for 48 yards and a touchdown against Dallas. While he could continue to be mixed in, the G-Men just have too many mouths to feed for Darkwa to continue to be anything more than a deep sleeper option for FantasyScore users.

New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa had eight carries for a team-high 48 yards and a touchdown in a 27-20 win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 7.
Fantasy Tip: Darkwa ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) made the most of his first carries of the season. As putrid as the Giants' ground game has been this year, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Darkwa continue to play a role going forward. He is worth a speculative grab in seasonal leagues.
