Scouting report

NYG RB Matt Breida - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 at Las Vegas Raiders

Matt Breida had five carries and a reception for a total of 17 yards last week as the Giants were down to their third-string quarterback and leaned heavily on the run game. It’s telling that he still had only six touches in a game where the team only attempted 14 passes. Even in a great matchup against the Raiders, Breida is hard to trust with a healthy Saquon Barkley ahead of him on the depth chart. Keep him on the bench this week, and he’s droppable in most leagues.

NYG RB Matt Breida - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at Miami Dolphins

Matt Breida should start again this week with Saquon Barkley set to miss another week with an ankle injury. Breida has filled in admirably for Barkley, but he's still not putting up RB2 numbers. He's a desperation RB3 option in deeper leagues, but in most leagues, he can be left on waivers.

NYG RB Matt Breida - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 vs. Seattle Seahawks

Matt Breida had just four carries last week in a lopsided loss to the 49ers, but he managed to score a touchdown on an eight-yard bull rush, and added three receptions for some PPR padding. Breida split time with Gary Brightwell, who also had four carries and three targets, but the team spent much of the game in negative game script, so it’s hard to take too much from it.

This week, Breida faces a Seahawks defense that ranks 25th in aFPA to opposing running backs. Breida should be able to find some space, but if the Giants get down early again, his touches could be limited. He also seemed to split time with Gary Brightwell, so fantasy managers should be cautious about assuming a full workload for the speedy veteran. We have him ranked outside starter territory this week, but I’m okay using him as a low-end RB3 option with upside in leagues that start three running backs.

NYG RB Matt Breida - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at San Francisco 49ers

We assume Matt Breida will be the beneficiary of the Saquon Barkley ankle injury on Thursday night against the 49ers. While I see an uptick in touches for the journeyman speedster, I don’t think he’s a sure bet for production. We saw Kyren Williams have a nice fantasy outing against this 49ers defense, but San Francisco is tough and Breida will likely will share the load with some else - probably Gary Brightwell - limiting his overall upside. Breida might want to stick it to his old team and he’s always had playmaking ability, but it’s far too risky to trust him in the vast majority of leagues. He should be a viewed as a Hail Mary RB3 option in most fantasy leagues.

BUF RB Matt Breida - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 vs. New England
With Zach Moss, Matt Breida will move into the backup role on the Buffalo depth chart. The veteran running back had 11 touches for 55 yards and touchdowns last week and since the Bills split time with their backs, he has fantasy value this week.

Breida faces New England who is ranked 13th in aFPA to running backs. Expect a similar workload for him on Monday night. He is a nice waiver wire pickup this week if you need an RB3 or flex.

BUF RB Matt Breida - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. Indianapolis
Matt Breida is getting on the field and when he is on the field, he is getting some touches. The veteran had six touches for 50 yards and a touchdown which made him the best fantasy running back on the roster from Week 10. We don't think this continues, but it does affect Zack Moss and Devin Singletary. For now, Breida remains on the waiver wire.

BUF RB Matt Breida - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at New York Jets
Matt Breida hasn't touched the ball Since Week 1, but with Zach Moss probably out, he moves into the backup role behind Devin Singletary. That gives him some fantasy value but not enough to roster him. Five touches wouldn't be a surprise but he is not even worth a waiver wire pickup for Week 10.
