Breida caught his only target for three yards in Monday's Week 16 loss to Philadelphia. He did not log any rush attempts.

Breida was almost almost entirely phased out of the Giants' offensive game plan, seeing just five snaps on offense -- his second-smallest count of the campaign. The veteran running back dealt with a hamstring injury during Week 16 prep, but it's unclear if the issue contributed to his diminished opportunities. Saquon Barkley unsurprisingly functioned in a workhorse role Monday, and no other New York player logged a rush attempt aside from quarterbacks Tommy DeVito and Tyrod Taylor. The loss officially eliminated the Giants from playoff contention, so there's a chance the team could elect to lighten Barkley's workload to some extent over the final two games of the campaign. However, even in that scenario rookie Eric Gray would be more likely to see expanded opportunities.
