Mike's Thoughts: Given concerns about Barkley even starting the season on the active roster, and there isn't much reason to be bullish about the Giants offense, I am fine to fade Saquon for now.

16 Chris Carson, SEA 9 27.0 3.03 15.7

Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson has been one of the best values in the NFL over the last three seasons, and he was rewarded with a new contract this offseason. Now, he stands alone in a Seahawks backfield that lacks a consistent threat behind him. Other players on the roster have mostly been guys that have filled in during injury or to spell Carson. Carson figures to see a massive workload this season. Rashaad Penny and DeeJay Dallas are really the only other names of note in this backfield, but with Carson's extension now in place, they are likely delegated to backup roles for this season.

  • Saquon Barkley Limited On Monday

    New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (knee) was limited at practice on Monday after he handled an extremely light workload after playing two games in just four days to begin the season. This should be no surprise that the coaching staff will continue to take precaution with the 24-year-old, as he had limited contact practices before the season opener. With 10 days of rest in between Week 2 and Week 3, Barkley could be in for a larger workload when the Giants host the Atlanta Falcons. After playing the majority of snaps in Week 2, Barkley could see an uptick in carries from the 13 he handled against Washington. The former Penn State star is an undeniable talent and has a weaker matchup this week, making him a must-start option for fantasy managers.

  • Saquon Barkley Says Knee Is "Responding Well"

    New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley told reporters that he is still working to "trust the knee" after the first two games of the season. "I was able to go out there and play a full game. My body and my knee responded well," Barkley said. The 24-year-old played 84% of snaps in Week 2, so it is expected he will once again play a big role in the offense when the Giants take on the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3. With 10 days to rest up, an increase in rushing attempts is likely on the horizon after he was eased back into things against tough matchups the first two weeks of the season. Barkley can be considered a lower-end RB1 and should be inserted into starting lineups.

  • Saquon Barkley Rushes For 56 Yards In Week 2 Loss

    New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (knee) rushed 13 times for 57 yards and hauled in two of three targets for 12 yards in Thursday's 30-29 loss to the Washington Football Team. Most of his rushing yards came off an explosive 41-yard run in the first quarter. The former No.2 overall pick displayed his quickness and shown his knee is close to a 100 percent on that run. Barkley has now rushed for 83 yards on 23 carries while catching 3-of-6 targets for 13 yards in both games in 2021. The 24-year-old logged 84% of the team's snaps (58-of-69) in Thursday's loss. Despite the slow start, Barkley is a surefire RB1 in Week 3 against a weak Atlanta Falcons defense. Fantasy managers should remain patient with Barkley as that breakout game could as early as next week.

  • Saquon Barkley Will Play Thursday Night

    New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (knee) will play on Thursday night against the Washington Football Team, according to a source. Barkley was questionable coming in, and he even admitted that two games in four days was not ideal after returning from a torn ACL in 2020. As expected, the 24-year-old was eased into the season-opening loss to the Denver Broncos last Sunday, getting only 10 carries and three targets on a 48 percent snap share. The Giants are expected to slowly increasing Barkley's workload as the season progresses, but fantasy managers shouldn't expect a big spike on the short week. On top of it, Barkley is facing a strong Washington defensive front in the rain in D.C. For at least one more week, he'll be more of an RB2/3 than the typically locked-in RB1.

  • Saquon Barkley Unlikely To Be Unleashed In Week 2

    New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley's (knee) production in the Week 1 loss to the Denver Broncos was very modest (11 touches for 27 yards), but it was expected in his first game back from a torn ACL on a limited snap count (48 percent of offensive snaps). Barkley didn't suffer any sort of setback and is on track to play on Thursday night against the Washington Football Team, but it's unlikely that the Giants will totally unleash him this week. The 24-year-old's snap percentage would've been higher had the Giants not pulled him on the final two drives with the game essentially over. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect week-winning production from Barkley against a strong Washington defensive front. Treat him as an RB2/3 for another week and hope he stays healthy.

  • Saquon Barkley Questionable Against Washington

    New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (knee) was a limited practice participant this week and is listed as questionable for the Thursday night game against the Washington Football Team in Week 2. As far as we know, Barkley didn't have a setback this week, so he should be good to go on Thursday night after he was eased into the fold in the season-opening loss to the Denver Broncos. In that game, he played only 47.5 percent of the offensive snaps and had just 10 carries for 26 yards. Barkley caught his only target for one yard. Expect the 24-year-old to be somewhat limited again, but he should at least lead this backfield in touches like he did in Week 1. The matchup against a stiff Washington defensive line isn't ideal, either, so consider Barkley more of an RB2/3 in Week 2.

  • Saquon Barkley Limited On Estimated Practice Report

    New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (knee) was listed as limited on the team's estimated practice report on Monday. Coming off an ACL tear last year, the Giants planned on easing Barkley back in for the season opener against the Denver Broncos. They did just that, as the star running back carried the ball just 10 times for 26 yards while catching one of three targets for one yard. On a short turnaround in Week 2 against the Washington Football Team this Thursday, fantasy managers shouldn't suddenly expect Barkley to see 15-plus touches. The 24-year-old should once again be faded in DFS, and you should temper expectations for him as more of an RB2 against one of the better defensive lines in football.

    New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 1 game against the Broncos. Barkley was expected to play, so this shouldn't be considered a surprising move. However, there's been a lot of chatter about Barkley not seeing a full workload in this game, making him more of an RB2 option than the RB1 play that Barkley usually is.

  • Saquon Barkley Medically Cleared, Set To Return Week 1

    New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (knee) has been medically cleared and is expected to play in the regular-season opener against the Denver Broncos. He logged limited practices throughout the week and is questionable for Sunday's game. The 24-year-old had no setbacks and is expected to return for the first time since tearing his ACL and MCL back in Week 2 of the 2020 season. The Giants will be cautious with their star running back and will ease him back into action. Barkley is expected to see a limited workload in his first game back. The No.2 pick of the 2018 NFL Draft gets a plus matchup against the Broncos, who allowed 130 rushing yards per game and were 25th in DVOA against the run last season. Despite the possible limited workload, fantasy managers should be starting Barkley in all league formats.

  • Saquon Barkley Looks Promising

    New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (knee) has looked promising during the past couple of days ahead of Week 1 against the Denver Broncos, according to head coach Joe Judge. Barkley is on track to play on Sunday, and it would "take a setback" for him to be held out of the lineup. The 24-year-old may be eased back into a full workload, so fantasy managers should temper their expectations for the stud running back in his first game back in almost a calendar year. The Giants have a short turnaround into Week 2 as they play next Thursday night, so this could factor into his snap count being managed. The undeniable talent of the former Penn State star is enough to insert him into your lineup, even if he sees limited touches early on.

  • Saquon Barkley Could Be Limited In A Plus Matchup Vs. Denver

    New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice and is trending in the right direction towards suiting up for the regular-season opener against the Denver Broncos. He went down with a torn ACL and MCL in his knee in Week 2 of last year and missed the rest of the season. The Giants will be cautious with their star running back and limit his workload to start the year.

  • Saquon Barkley Limited Wednesday

    New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (knee) was listed as a limited practice participant on Wednesday. Barkley went down with a torn ACL and MCL in his knee in Week 2 of last year and missed the rest of the season. He was able to take part in a full-contact practice last week and appears on track to play in Week 1 against the Denver Broncos, but most expect the 24-year-old to be eased back into the fold initially. That means that fantasy managers shouldn't expect a full workload for the team's top back. Devontae Booker and Gary Brightwell could see more work in the season-opener to spell Barkley. The Broncos defense was middle of the pack last year in terms of fantasy points per game allowed to running backs, but their defense as a whole is above-average and could give the Giants offense some problems. While Barkley still has outstanding upside when healthy, the matchup and his likely smaller workload make him more of a high-end RB2 this weekend than a surefire RB1.

  • Saquon Barkley Almost "Fully Cleared", Gearing Up For Week 1

    New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (knee) is close to being fully cleared and is gearing up to play in Week 1 against the Denver Broncos. The Giants will monitor the star running back through Thursday and see how his body responds to the workload. If Barkley does suit up in Week 1, he will be in the starting lineup but won't have a full workload. Devontae Booker should see some additional looks in Week 1. The 24-year-old has made tremendous progress this offseason in his recovery from knee surgery. Barkley is expected to be all systems for Week 1, but fantasy managers should temper expectations as he receives a limited workload to start the year. Barkley is a surefire RB1, and managers can select him in the late first round with confidence in upcoming fantasy drafts.

    New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (knee) is still in jeopardy of missing the Week 1 opener against the Denver Broncos. Although Barkley has been making contact during recent practice sessions, which is a good sign, team medical staff will continue to take things slow with the former Nittany Lion. The 24-year-old hasn't played since the start of the 2020 season after he tore the ACL in his right knee. Nonetheless, even if Barkley is healthy enough to suit up, he could very likely be on a snap count of some sort.

He continues to make progress from an ACL tear and has participated in full-team drills in training camp. The Giants won't decide until next week, and there is a chance the team could be cautious with their star running back and hold him out. According to head coach Joe Judge, Barkley has a few more key practices to go through. The 24-year-old tore his ACL in Week 2 of the 2020 season. Fantasy managers should continue to monitor the situation but have a backup plan if Barkley cannot suit up for the regular-season opener.

    There is still no guarantee that New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley will be ready to play in Week 1. Initially, coach Joe Judge said Barkley could miss the first two weeks of the season. The Giants open up their year against the Denver Broncos at home. Judge may hold Barkley out of the opener due to the matchup. There is a quick turnaround for the Giants, as they match up against the Washington Football Team during Week 2 for Thursday Night Football. Therefore, he may miss the first two weeks and be back for Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons. Nevertheless, Devontae Booker could be in line for more carries in Weeks 1 and 2.

As of this point, that would be the plan, but we'll see where it goes as we go on down further and further when his body is ready for all the football." The 24-year-old has been limited in practice, but his knee has "responded well" since being activated from the PUP list last Monday. "He responded well last week to the volume and the load," Judge added. "I thought the plan of putting him through a couple of days, backing him off, ramping him back up, so obviously they have a really good feel for his body working with him throughout these last few months through the rehab process. At this point, the focus is really to kind of get him moving more and more within the football movements." Barkley continues to work his way back from knee surgery and reportedly will return between Weeks 1-3 of the regular season.

    The New York Giants plan to take a "long-term approach" with running back Saquon Barkley (knee) this summer, per head coach Joe Judge. There's reportedly still a chance he could be ready by Week 1. "We're thinking long term with Saquon; long term in the season, long term in his career," Judge said. "And by taking care of him individually, that is going to help our team long term as well. We're going to make sure when we get him out there; we can keep him out there." The 24-year-old began training camp on the Giants preseason Physically Unable to Perform List as he continues to recover from surgery last year to repair an ACL tear. "And we've got to make sure we do the best thing for him as we go along the way and make sure we make decisions based on his body and not some artificially anticipated timeline. When he's ready to go, that is when he's going to be out there," Judge added. Barkley is expected to have a reduced workload to begin the season as the Giants will be extra careful with their star running back this summer. The No.2 pick of the 2018 NFL Draft has an ADP of 5.8 in upcoming fantasy drafts, but that number could drop if Barkley isn't ready to suit up by Week 1.

    New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (knee) said his right knee is feeling "pretty good," but he remains non-committal on how much he'll do at training camp and whether he'll be ready for Week 1. Barkley is not expected to be a full-go at the start of training camp, a source said last month. Ever since he injured his ACL in Week 2 of last year, both Barkley and the team have been reluctant to put a timetable on his return. The Giants won't put him on the field in live situations until he's 100 percent, and that might not come until October. The 24-year-old is likely to have his workload reduced early on, and combined with all the injuries he's had early in his career, Barkley's early round price will surely drop.

He still has around three weeks to heal from a torn ACL suffered early last season, and the Giants and fantasy managers will be hoping that he's ready to roll for Week 1. It's all about risk versus reward in fantasy drafts. Barkley's talent isn't in question, but his injury history and the fact that he might not be ready for the start of camp make him a pretty risky top-five pick in the top half of the first round in fantasy drafts.
