Rainey will be the forgotten man on the Giants' depth chart this spring and summer, but his burst, vision, smarts between the tackles, and versatility could make him far more memorable by fall. He's a better inside runner than Shane Vereen, has better vision than Andre Williams, and he can return kicks. Look for Rainey to win a roster spot and find playing time if those ahead of him falter. He's capable of RB2 production for fantasy owners.


Bobby Rainey faces an uphill battle to make the 53-man roster. Outside of a strong half season in Tampa Bay in 2013 (532 yards and 5 touchdowns in nine games), Rainey has been a third or fourth option. Rainey is likely battling Andre Williams for the final roster spot in the preseason. (May 21)

Giants | Orleans Darkwa playing catch-up (Tue Jun 28, 10:21 PM) - New York Giants RB Orleans Darkwa (leg) missed the entire spring practice sessions due to a lower leg injury, and that set him back in the pecking order among the team's tailbacks. He is expected to battle RB Andre Williams for the No. 3 job, while RB Bobby Rainey is also in the mix. The team invested a fifth round pick on RB Paul Perkins, so he is expected to make the team, too.

Our View: It's likely to come down to Darkwa vs Williams for a roster spot...and we'd take Darkwa 10 times out of 10. He's a patient runner who could get on the field for the Giants they get inside the 20-yard line. Fantasy owners should keep an eye on the Giants backfield as it's a bit of a mess, but make sure to keep Darkwa on the waiver-wire speed dial just in case.
