RB - NYG
Week 13 Outlook
Eric Gray rushed for 25 yards on 12 carries in the Giants' 31-16 loss to the Dolphins. He also caught 1-of-1 targets for an additional one yard through the air.
Gray led the team in rushing attempts Sunday, but only averaged 2.1 yards per carry on the day. This was just Gray's second time being active on game day and his first game where he logged a touch. With Saquon Barkley (ankle) likely back in Week 6, fantasy managers can leave Gray on the waiver wire.
Eric Gray is reportedly seeing reps as a punt returner in Giants practice.
The Giants are looking for a new punt returner with the departure of Richie James and it could be Gray. The fifth-round rookie RB will look to earn a role in special teams along with being a depth option in the backfield.
The New York Giants have selected RB Eric Gray with the No. 172 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.
The New York Giants placed the franchise tag on Saquon Barkley this offseason. They also re-signed Matt Breida to a one-year deal. However, Gray should beat out Breida for the No. 2 role as a rookie. Fantasy players with Barkley on their roster should prioritize Gray in their rookie drafts, especially given the superstar's injury history.
