Dec. 7, 2017 12:00 PM PT1:00 PM MT2:00 PM CT3:00 PM ET20:00 GMT4:00 1:00 PM MST3:00 PM EST2:00 PM CT0:00 UAE (+1)15:00 ETNaN:� - Darkwa seems to be over his illness and will play Sunday's game with Dallas.
Analysis: Darkwa has managed only 62 yards and 2.5 yards per carry over the last two weeks, though he has scored a touchdown in two of the last three games.
Dec. 3, 2017 5:59 PM PT6:59 PM MT7:59 PM CT8:59 PM ET1:59 GMT9:59 6:59 PM MST8:59 PM EST7:59 PM CT5:59 UAE (+1)20:59 ETNaN:� - Orleans Darkwa ran for 32 yards and one touchdown on 14 carries Sunday in the New York Giants' 24-17 loss to the Oakland Raiders. He added one reception for -1 yards.
Analysis: Darkwa has now managed only 62 yards and 2.5 yards per carry over the last two weeks, though he has scored a touchdown in two of the last three games. Though still the Giants' No. 1 back at the moment, he rates as an unappealing play in next Sunday's matchup against a Dallas defense that's been generally solid against the run lately.
Nov. 23, 2017 8:22 PM PT9:22 PM MT10:22 PM CT11:22 PM ET4:22 GMT12:22 9:22 PM MST11:22 PM EST10:22 PM CT8:22 UAE23:22 ETNaN:� - Orleans Darkwa ran for 30 yards on 11 carries Thursday in the New York Giants' 20-10 loss to the Washington Redskins. He added one reception for nine yards.
Analysis: Darkwa wasn't immune to an awful offensive effort by the Giants as he averaged just 2.7 yards per carry. He had gained at least 70 yards in three straight games so this was quite a dropoff. The Giants are a mess offensively right now, making it hard to depend on Darkwa for any consistent production from week to week.
Nov. 19, 2017 4:29 PM PT5:29 PM MT6:29 PM CT7:29 PM ET0:29 GMT8:29 5:29 PM MST7:29 PM EST6:29 PM CT4:29 UAE (+1)19:29 ETNaN:� - Orleans Darkwa ran for 74 yards and one touchdown on 20 carries Sunday in the New York Giants' 12-9 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. He added two receptions for 16 yards.
Analysis: Darkwa has rushed for at least 70 yards in three consecutive games but still only has two TDs all season.
Nov. 12, 2017 6:51 PM PT7:51 PM MT8:51 PM CT9:51 PM ET2:51 GMT10:51 7:51 PM MST9:51 PM EST8:51 PM CT6:51 UAE (+1)21:51 ETNaN:� - Orleans Darkwa ran for 70 yards on 14 carries Sunday in the New York Giants' 31-21 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. He added two receptions for 18 yards.
Analysis: A pretty typical performance from Darkwa, who's averaging 72.4 rushing yards in five games since taking over as the Giants' lead back. Though his ceiling is limited, the fourth-year pro has shown himself to be a decent starting option in deep fantasy leagues.
Nov. 5, 2017 1:40 PM PT2:40 PM MT3:40 PM CT4:40 PM ET21:40 GMT5:40 2:40 PM MST4:40 PM EST3:40 PM CT1:40 UAE (+1)16:40 ETNaN:� - Orleans Darkwa ran for 71 yards on 16 carries Sunday in the New York Giants' 51-17 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. He added two receptions for eight yards.
Analysis: Darkwa is starting to get the majority of the touches in the Giants' backfield, but he's only scored one TD.
Oct. 22, 2017 6:06 PM PT7:06 PM MT8:06 PM CT9:06 PM ET1:06 GMT9:06 6:06 PM MST8:06 PM EST8:06 PM CT5:06 UAE (+1)21:06 ETNaN:� - Orleans Darkwa ran for 35 yards on nine carries Sunday in the New York Giants' 24-7 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. He added three receptions for 13 yards.
Analysis: Darkwa wasn't able to duplicate the surprising 117 rushing yards he put up against Denver's tough defense a week ago. That performance seems like an outlier with the Giants' passing game in a shambles, though he should garner enough touches to warrant starting consideration in deeper fantasy leagues.
Oct. 15, 2017 8:54 PM PT9:54 PM MT10:54 PM CT11:54 PM ET3:54 GMT11:54 8:54 PM MST10:54 PM EST10:54 PM CT7:54 UAE (+1)23:54 ETNaN:� - Orleans Darkwa ran for 117 yards on 21 carries Sunday in the New York Giants' 23-10 win over the Denver Broncos. He added one reception for 13 yards.
Analysis: Darkwa filled in nicely for Paul Perkins, who appears to be week-to-week. Darkwa should have some value as long as Perkins remains sidelined.
Oct. 8, 2017 1:39 PM PT2:39 PM MT3:39 PM CT4:39 PM ET20:39 GMT4:39 1:39 PM MST3:39 PM EST3:39 PM CT0:39 UAE (+1)16:39 ETNaN:� - Orleans Darkwa ran for 69 yards and one touchdown on eight carries Sunday in the New York Giants' 27-22 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. He added one reception for three yards.
Analysis: Darkwa might be the Giants' back to own at the moment in fantasy, but that's still not saying much.
Sep. 26, 2017 1:20 PM PT2:20 PM MT3:20 PM CT4:20 PM ET20:20 GMT4:20 1:20 PM MST3:20 PM EST3:20 PM CT0:20 UAE (+1)16:20 ETNaN:� - Darkwa is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bucs after missing practice Wednesday and Thursday, though he said earlier in the week he expects to play.
Analysis: Apparently it was just a tweak that forced him out of the Week 3 loss to the Eagles, but missing back-to-back practices certainly puts Darkwa's status in doubt. He had been cutting into Paul Perkins' touches and could soon surpass his teammate's workload because Darkwa has been more effective thus far.
Sep. 24, 2017 5:17 PM PT6:17 PM MT7:17 PM CT8:17 PM ET0:17 GMT8:17 5:17 PM MST7:17 PM EST7:17 PM CT4:17 UAE (+1)20:17 ETNaN:� - Orleans Darkwa ran for 22 yards on seven carries Sunday in the New York Giants' 27-24 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. He added one reception for 11 yards.
Analysis: Darkwa (back) left in the fourth quarter and his status is uncertain.
Sep. 18, 2017 8:34 PM PT9:34 PM MT10:34 PM CT11:34 PM ET3:34 GMT11:34 8:34 PM MST10:34 PM EST10:34 PM CT7:34 UAE (+1)23:34 ETNaN:� - Orleans Darkwa ran for 17 yards on three carries Monday in the New York Giants' 24-10 loss to the Detroit Lions. He added one reception for three yards.
