New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley was impressive against the Eagles on Thursday. The rookie did it all on the offensive end, finishing the night with 13 carries for 130 yards and a score in addition to nine receptions for 99 yards. With the team having issues on the offensive end outside of himself, Barkley will continue to be heavily involved moving forward and should maintain his fantasy efficiency next Monday night against the Falcons in Atlanta.
New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley appears to have avoided injury after limping to the sidelines following his second touchdown of the game against the Panthers. Barkley is not listed on the injury report and will now go up against an Eagles defense this Thursday night that has allowed the third fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. They have not allowed more than 42 yards to an individual runner and only one total touchdown all season to the position. Barkley is off to a fantastic start to his rookie season and has at least 100 all-purpose yards in each of his first five games. Barkley needs to be in all lineups to kick off Week 6.
New York Giants rookie running back Saquon Barkley isn't on the initial injury report for Week 6 against the Eagles on Thursday night. He'll be ready to go. Barkley looked to injury his lower body on a touchdown late in the Week 5 loss to the Panthers, but apparently he's fine. The promising youngster has had over 100 yards from scrimmage in the first five games of his career. He's the real deal and is a must-start for fantasy owners.
