Giants' Orleans Darkwa: Has career game in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darkwa carried 20 times for 154 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Redskins.

Darkwa received 20 carries for just the third time this season and responded with 7.7 yards per carry and a career high in rushing yardage. The bulk of his damage came on just the second offensive play of the game, when he went 75 yards for a touchdown to give his side a lead it would never relinquish. Darkwa was ineffective in several games this season and ceded touches to Wayne Gallman at times, but he did record career highs in virtually every rushing category. He will be an unrestricted free agent after this season and could command some attention on the market from teams in need of backfield depth.

Giants' Orleans Darkwa: Scores in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darkwa ran for seven yards and a touchdown on nine carries and added a nine-yard catch during Sunday's 34-29 loss to the Eagles.

The veteran plunged into the end zone for a one-yard score early in the first quarter as part of New York's 23-point first half. It was his third touchdown in five games, but his luck -- like the Giants' -- ran out early. The Giants face an offseason of significant change, and the veteran back hasn't topped four yards per carry in a game since Week 9. It makes sense that the team will look at rookie Wayne Gallman, who will almost certainly be on the squad next season, as compared to Darkwa, who faces free agency.

Giants' Orleans Darkwa: Held in check versus Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darkwa carried 10 times for 29 yards and caught two of three targets for an additional 15 yards during Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Cowboys.

Darkwa averaged an underwhelming 2.9 yards per carry despite what was a favorable matchup on paper, finishing with fewer than 33 rushing yards for the third straight game. He also watched as fellow back Wayne Gallman totaled 99 scrimmage yards on 19 touches and was heavily involved as the Giants played from behind. Given Darkwa's ineffectiveness and Gallman's emergence, the latter seems like the more desirable fantasy option heading into next week's matchup with the Eagles.

Giants' Orleans Darkwa: Ready to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darkwa (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

A mid-week addition to the Giants' injury report after missing Thursday's practice while battling the illness, Darkwa was able to return to practice in a limited fashion Friday. It looks like that was enough for the Giants to sign off on him playing Sunday, likely setting Darkwa up for another game as the team's lead rusher. That might not be enough to make Darkwa a viable starting option outside of deeper settings, however, as he's been limited to a combined 62 yards on the ground and two receptions the past two weeks.

Giants' Orleans Darkwa: Expected to dress Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darkwa (illness), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, is expected to play, a source informed Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

After coming down with the illness following Wednesday's practice, Darkwa sat out Thursday's session before returning Friday in a limited capacity. While Darkwa may not be fully recovered from the illness, it sounds like he'll be healthy enough to give it a go Sunday, likely reprising his role as the Giants' lead back. After three consecutive games of at least 70 yards on the ground, Darkwa's productivity has dipped the past two weeks, as he's amassed only 70 total yards on 27 touches.
