Orleans Darkwa scores 75-yard TD early to help New York beat Washington
Orleans Darkwa ended the year on a high note in the Giants' 18-10 victory over Washington. The Tulane product ran the ball 20 times for 154 yards and a touchdown.
A great deal of Darkwa's fantasy points came on a huge 75-yard TD run on the second play from scrimmage, which saw the starting back find a crease, break through arm tackles and outpace the Washington defense on the way to the end zone. Darkwa finishes a breakout 2017 with five touchdowns and over 700 yards. A free agent this offseason and probably the most consistent back on the Giants' roster, Darkwa is capable of being a starter wherever he winds up. But injury concerns over the past few seasons could hold him back. He should be a mid-round selection in 2018 fantasy drafts.
