2016

Not long ago, any running back taken in the fifth round of the draft would be seen as a longshot to make the team, let alone accrue fantasy value, but the shifting scale of NFL priorities forces us to recalibrate the scale. The Giants backfield is crowded with several options, but nobody in front of Perkins is an unmovable behemoth; Rashad Jennings turned 31 in the spring and Shane Vereen doesn't have a history of playing in all packages. Perkins averaged 5.6 yards per rush as a collegian, along with a 9.2 average on 80 receptions. He might not be thick enough to project as a true featured back down the line, but his versatility and elusiveness could allow him to win a sizable share of the backfield work at some point this year.
