Saquon Barkley News
New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley was named the 2018 Rookie of the Year on Saturday. The second overall pick rushed for 1,307 yards (second in the NFL) and 11 touchdowns on 261 carries and also caught 91 passes (tying Odell Beckham Jr. for most for a Giants rookie) for another 721 yards and four scores. He finished with the most scrimmage yards (2,028) in the league in his first season and his 352 touches were second most in the NFL. Barkley's scrimmage yards were the third most from a rookie in league history and his 91 receptions were the most of any rookie running back. The sky is the limit for Barkley moving forward, and he'll certainly be in play as a high-end RB1 in the first round of fantasy drafts going into his second season.
New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley carried the ball 17 times for 109 yards, one touchdown and added 33 receiving yards in the Giants 35-35 loss to the Cowboys. Barkley has been fantastic all season and once again made some game-breaking plays in the final game of the season. The rookie running back finishes the season 2,028 yards from scrimmage (1,307 rushing, 721 receiving), averaging 5.0 yards per carry and hauling in 91 receptions with 15 total touchdowns. Barkley is already a superstar and will be a surefire top-3 selection in fantasy drafts in 2019.
New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley racked up 77 yards from scrimmage, including his 14th total touchdown of the season, in the Giants loss to the Colts in Week 16. There was little space to run for the rookie most of the game but still managed to find the end zone.

New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley was held to only 31 yards on 14 carries in the Giants 17-0 loss to the Titans. Barkley added four receptions for 25 yards but the rookie laid a fantasy egg at the wrong time. Barkley had posted over 100 yards from scrimmage in 12 of his first 13 games this season but the Titans shut down the entire offense. Barkley needs to be in all lineups next week despite another tough matchup against a Colts defense that has not allowed a single 100-yard rusher all season.
New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley will go up against a Titans defense in Week 15 that is allowing the fifth fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. But at this point in the season, tough matchups no longer scare fantasy owners of the fantastic rookie. Barkley has least 100-plus yards from scrimmage in 12 of the 13 games played this season to go along with 13 total touchdowns. Barkley is about as bankable a fantasy option as any player in the league right now and heads into Week 15 with 1,753 all-purpose yards. Start Barkley with confidence.
