The Giants haven't had the most robust running game in recent years, and Perkins will have to share with Shane Vereen in the passing game, but if there's going to be a "hit" in the Giants backfield this year, it will be Perkins. He makes a lot of sense for best ball teams that wait on running back need high season-long ceiling plays in the mid-rounds.

Summary

The Giants are looking for an answer at running back. Head coach Ben McAdoo has vaulted the Giants offense to new heights in his three-year tenure but attempts to foster balance have failed miserably. The combination of an inferior offensive line and one-dimensional running backs has besieged the Giants ground game for too long. If there is a running back on the roster capable of solving the problem, it's Paul Perkins. As a rookie, Perkins was good-but-not-great in a part-time role. He ran for 456 yards on 112 carries and caught 15 passes for 162 yards. Solid numbers in a limited role, but hardly enough evidence to confidently forecast Perkins as a breakthrough fantasy starter. McAdoo has already named Perkins the starter, and the combination of more consistent touches with a better offensive line are reasons for optimism. (July 15)
