2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
Journeyman running back Matt Breida joined the Giants this off-season after spending time in committee backfields with the Dolphins in 2020 and the Bills in 2021. Now aligned as the clear backup with no real path to a starting role without an injury, Breida is going undrafted in most fantasy leagues as a handcuff to one of the league's most entrenched starters on what is expected to be a bad team.

While Breida is unlikely to see significant work without a Saquon Barkley injury, it's a bit odd to see Breida not being selected by the fantasy managers who continually decry Barkley as being "injury-prone." If they're so convinced that Barkley is going to get hurt again, wouldn't it make sense to at least take his backup with a late-round pick? Even if the team is projected to be bad, a starting running back - or at least one who'd be projected to lead a committee - would have some value in today's fantasy game.

Putting that question aside, it's easy to look at Breida and not be very excited about him. After performing well but dealing with his own injuries while in San Francisco, Breida has had a tough time getting touches with the Dolphins or Bills over the past two years. When he has touched the ball, however, he's been more efficient than some might think. He's averaged over 10 yards per reception in each of his past two seasons, albeit on small sample sizes, while also rushing for 4.5 yards total per carry. He was more effective than Myles Gaskin, Salvon Ahmed, Zack Moss, or Devin Singletary when he had the ball in his hands.

Don't go into your draft expecting that Breida is going to become some sort of stud for you this season, but understand that he's an injury away from potentially being a weekly flex starter here in 2022.
