Shark Bites

Giants RB Matt Breida tallied 14 carries for 30 yards in Week 4’s loss vs. the Seahawks. He also added 5 catches for a team-leading 48 receiving yards in the contest. TE Darren Waller posted meager numbers again, catching all 3 of his targets for just 21 yards. Though he ranks t-ninth among TEs in targets (23), Waller has only one game with over 3 receptions. This Giants team is simply lost. They’ve now played three primetime games this season, and they’ve been outscored 94-15. Yikes. We might feel comfortable starting RB Saquon Barkley if he’s able to return from injury in Week 5 vs. the Dolphins, but he’d be the only one.

Recent Shark Bites

You're living good if you started Giants RB Matt Breida in fantasy football vs. the 49ers on Thursday night. He finished with just 18 total yards on seven touches. But one of those touches went for an eight-yard TD. That at least salvaged a useable fantasy performance in what was an ugly game for Breida and the Giants. The team ran just 46 plays and had only 11 rushing attempts. But Breida split carries down the middle with RB Gary Brightwell, finishing with four apiece. Both RBs also saw three targets. Breida did handily lead Brightwell in snaps and remains the best fantasy bet in this backfield as long as RB Saquon Barkley is out. But he's no better than a RB3, even in an easier Week 4 matchup vs. the Seahawks.

ESPN's Jordan Ranaan gave his take on what the Giants' backfield will look like for however long RB Saquon Barkley is out. Ranaan expects RB Matt Breida to have the "biggest role" due to his familiarity with HC Brian Daboll's offense and his reliability in pass protection. Ranaan adds that RB Gary Brightwell will get "some carries," while RB Eric Gray will be used "sporadically as a runner and pass-catcher." It's confirmation that Breida is the best fantasy bet here -- although not a particularly good one.

The Giants signed RB Matt Breida. The 27-year-old flashed over his first 3 NFL seasons under HC Kyle Shanahan in San Francisco but has disappointed in Miami and Buffalo the past 2 years. Breida joins Gary Brightwell and Antonio Williams behind Saquon Barkley in New York's backfield. We'll see what else the G-Men do at the position this offseason.

Bills RB Matt Breida is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Falcons. Buffalo will again go with RBs Devin Singletary and Zack Moss. Singletary has racked up 34 carries and 7 targets over the last 2 weeks.

Bills RB Matt Breida is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Patriots. RB Zack Moss is active after being healthy scratched the past 2 weeks. That might hint at more of a power-run element to Buffalo's run game plan today. But we're still expecting Devin Singletary to operate as the Bills' lead back.
