View RB Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Breida, then a 2nd-year 49er, finished 2018 as the #26 RB in total PPR points.
  • Each of the 3 seasons since has seen his carries and receptions decline and ended with a team letting him go.
  • Breida trailed Myles Gaskin and Salvin Ahmed in both rushing attempts and targets in 2020 – despite playing more games than both of them – after the Dolphins had traded a draft pick to acquire him.
  • Breida garnered just 26 carries and 9 targets with last year’s Bills, trailing even Zack Moss by 70 and 23, respectively, in those categories.
  • The Giants signed Breida this offseason after GM Joe Schoen and HC Brian Daboll arrived from that Buffalo team. His 1-year contract included just $127,500 in signing bonus and $277,500 in total guaranteed money.
  • Behind starter Saquon Barkley, the rest of Breida’s backfield competition has 13 total NFL carries and 2 targets. Thirteen of those 15 opportunities came from Antonio Williams in a single 2020 game with the Bills.


Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

The new Giants leadership clearly likes Breida to some degree. The GM and HC both came over from Buffalo, where Breida played last year. But he got on the field sparingly, and it marked a 3rd straight season of work decline. That span also found him with 3 different teams. There’s opportunity to claim the #2 RB role behind Saquon Barkley, but it’s tough to imagine Breida claiming lead-back touches even if Barkley were to go down. The 27-year-old is not a meaningful fantasy target even at a handcuff level. We’ll see whether the team adds to its backfield this summer.

Saquon Barkley, RB NYG

8:59am EST 1/6/23

Giants expected to sit starters Week 18

The New York Post's Ryan Dunleavy reports that the Giants are expected to sit "key starters" in Sunday's regular-season finale vs. the Eagles. New York is locked into the NFC's #6 seed and has nothing to play for. We've been projecting QB Daniel Jones and RB Saquon Barkley to sit all week. Look for QB Tyrod Taylor to get the start and for RBs Matt Breida and Gary Brightwell to handle backfield duties. WRs Darius Slayton, Isaiah Hodgins and Richie James could also be held out or be pulled early in Sunday's game.

The Giants gave RB Saquon Barkley just 9 carries and 2 targets in Sunday's loss to the Eagles. He trailed both RB Gary Brightwell and RB Matt Breida by 2 snaps, in a game Barkley entered as a game-time decision because of a neck issue. We'll see about Barkley's status heading into a Week 15 visit to Washington.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that RB Saquon Barkley (neck) is "legit 50/50" to play vs. the Eagles today. The Giants "want to see how he feels Sunday in pre-game warmups before deciding whether he will play." We'll get New York's inactives around 11:30 am ET. If Barkley sits, the Giants will be down to RBs Matt Breida and Gary Brightwell.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that Giants RB Saquon Barkley is "legitimately 50-50" to be active for Sunday's game against the Eagles. Officially questionable, Barkley was limited in practice Thursday and Friday and will carry some risk even if active. We'll certainly be tracking his status Sunday morning. RB-needy teams could add Matt Breida ahead of game time, though he wouldn't be a strong fantasy football option even if Barkley is inactive.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (neck) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Eagles. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and then limited again in Friday’s practice. HC Brian Daboll said Friday that Barkley’s neck is “a little sore” and said, “I hope so” when asked whether Barkley will play this weekend. ESPN’s Jordan Raanan, for what it’s worth, said that he’d be surprised if Barkley didn’t play. We’ll look for further updates on the situation and will get the Giants’ inactives around 11:30 am on Sunday. RB Matt Breida would be the best bet for carries in New York if Barkley doesn’t play.
