Veteran running back Matt Breida should be the "safe No. 2 option" behind Saquon Barkley this season for the Giants according to Charlotte Carroll of The Athletic.

Fantasy drafters have been quick to draft rookie fifth-round pick Eric Gray this offseason, but Carroll believes Breida has the inside edge to retain his role as the RB2 in the Giants' offense. Breida, 28, totaled 338 yards from scrimmage and one touchdown last season and has worked with head coach Brian Daboll dating back to their time in Buffalo.

While Breida's experience will work to his advantage early on, he may need to fight off Gray in training camp as he becomes more familiar with the system and proves he's ready for more looks.
