2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Second-year back Paul Perkins enters camp as the favorite to start the 2017 season for the Giants, assuming he can fend off journeyman Shaun Draughn, veteran Orleans Darkwa, and rookies Wayne Gallman and Khalid Abdullah. As a rookie, Perkins averaged 4.1 yards per carry on 112 touches on the ground, with 15 receptions for 162 yards. The former fifth-round pick from UCLA showed promise, but he did not run away with the job as evident by the fact that he failed to score a TD in 13 games, and the Giants are not heavily invested in him when it comes to draft capital or salary cap issues. Despite these knocks, Perkins is the favorite to receive 200-plus carries in an offense that finished 8th overall just two seasons ago when they ran the ball more effectively, and Manning threw for 35 touchdowns.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Perkins, Shephard out for the Giants
Avoid Giants if possible
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 13, 9:22 am

New York Giants
OUT for Giants on Sunday: Jonathan Casillas, Olivier Vernon, WR Sterling Shepard, DE Romeo Okwara, TB Paul Perkins, C Weston Richburg. Ouch! (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Both were expected to miss Week 6 so this isn't much of a surprise. The Giants running backs against the Broncos will be Orleans Darkwa, Shane Vereen and rookie Wayne Gallman. The Broncos have been best against the run so far in 2017 with no rushing TDs allowed. Vereen should be considered as a desperation PPR play.


Injury Paul Perkins out for Week 5
Rib injury

New York Giants
RB Paul Perkins and C Weston Richburg are OUT for Sunday's game vs Chargers. (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Perkins is battling a rib injury and will likely be inactive this week. This opens the door a bit for rookie Wayne Gallman to receive a few more carries however, the Giants running game is in bad shape and Gallman should only be considered a flex play in 12-team leagues.


Injury Giants missing two RBs at practice
Darkwa and Vereen sit for second day in a row

New York Giants
Giants not practicing: Olivier Vernon, Orleans Darkwa, Shane Vereen, Jonathan Casillas, Brett Jones, J.T. Thomas (Jordan Raanan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: If Darkwa and Vereen both miss Week 4, we could see a lot of Paul Perkins and perhaps a little of rookie Wayne Gallman. That being said, the Giants running game has been woeful to start the season making Perkins nothing more than a Flex consideration against the Bucs.
