Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 4 vs TB (9 / 13 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)

Paul Perkins was relatively ineffective on Sunday again as the Giants rushing attack was predictably subpar. Perkins got next to nothing accomplished on the ground and Gallman took over as the game progressed. Perkins was swallowed up very quickly at the line of scrimmage by Tampa bay. The Bucs did not let Perkins get into the second level much and routinely met him at the line of scrimmage. He ran hard but typically ran into a brick wall as the Giants offensive line are regarded as below average in their run blocking. Perkins lost carries to Gallman as the game progressed and never was a feature in the redzone anyway. His value is minimal at this point and should not be started in most fantasy leagues.

2017 Week 3 vs PHI (9 / 22 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 8 / 0 rec)

Paul Perkins and the entire Giants rushing attack was a non factor in this game. The running game for the Giants has been very poor all season to this point and thing's don't seem likely to improve going forward. Perkins was given a 9 carries but just could never get going against the Eagles. They swarmed him whenever he got the handoff and he couldn't break into the secondary. As the Giants fell behind, the running game was put aside for the most part as Manning & Co. had to play catch up. Perkins mainly works between the 20's and gives up redzone duties to Darkwa as well, which is another reason for fantasy owners to avoid playing him. The Giants just cannot move the ball on the ground at all and no RB on the team has any value as a starter at this moment in time.

2017 Week 2 vs DET (7 / 10 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)

Second-year back Paul Perkins' day started with a carry out of the I-formation; its result a run for no gain would be an omen for the rest of his evening. The Giants offensive line was consistently manhandled up front by the Lions. They created no push and Perkins and the other backs were forced to check their steps and dive forward for whatever minimal gain was available. The Giants tried to get Perkins the ball in space on a screen pass, but it too was snuffed out. He got the call in the red zone, but was wrapped up just short of the goal line. His opportunities were few and far between, and he was another victim of the offensive malaise descending on Big Blue.

2017 Week 1 vs DAL (7 / 16 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec)

Paul Perkins and the entire Giants offense never got into any semblance of rhythm on Sunday and they were forced to abandon the running game into the second half. The Giants offensive line was a disaster and they became one dimensional which really hurt the fantasy potential of Perkins. Perkins was not as involved in the passing game as Vereen, who is clearly the favourite back in obvious passing situations. The offense had no balance and the Cowboy defense did not let the Giants establish any sort of running game. He ran inside for the most part and tried to pick gaps in the front 7 but rarely had any effective plays. The Cowboys swarmed to the ball well and he only had one redzone rush attempt. A truely abysmal performance for the Giants offense, hopefully the unit can rebound and breathe life into players like Perkins.
