2017 Fantasy Football Outlook

Darkwa is an afterthought this year after the team brought in Shaun Draughn and drafted Wayne Gallman in the fourth round. If Darkwa does stick, he'll likely spend much of his time on special teams....

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

"The Dark Horse" is once again not slated to see much work, and the Giants selection of Paul Perkins only solidifies that notion. Rashad Jennings is still the ostensible starter with Shane Vereen around for third downs and Andre Williams' carcass — should he make the cut — for short yardage. Darkwa did passably on 36 carries last year (4.3 YPC), but the sample's too small to be especially meaningful.

2015

Darkwa gained nearly 3,000 yards on the ground and scored 39 rushing touchdowns in his four seasons as a member of Tulane’s backfield. His college success didn’t really translate much to the NFL, however. Splitting 2014 between the Dolphins and the Giants, the rookie back finished the campaign with just nine rushes for 23 yards and a touchdown, adding an additional five catches for 48 yards. He’ll likely serve as depth in a 2015 Giants backfield featuring Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams on early downs and Jennings and Shane Vereen in passing situations. While most of his work should come on special teams, at 6-foot, 215 pounds and running a 4.46 40, he has the physical skills to make an impact in the unlikely event he gets an extended opportunity.

2014

Darkwa was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Tulane and would have to excel on special teams to make the team as the Dolphins have several players ahead of him on the depth chart at running back.
