2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
Barkley lived up to the hype that made him the second overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft. The former Penn State star became only the third rookie in NFL history to reach 2000 total yards, joining Edgerrin James and Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson.

One of the best dual threats in the league, Barkley trailed only Christian McCaffrey in receptions out of the backfield, and he is one of only six players to reach double digits in rushing touchdowns.

His impressive rookie campaign has Barkley squarely in the midst of going first overall in most fantasy drafts. Although his receiving skills and volume in the passing game give him a floor nearly unmatched at the position, the lack of a true downfield threat with the absence of Beckham and the chance of the team turning to a rookie QB could hurt his value.

It may also be difficult for Barkley to keep up with his impressive 5.0 yard per carry average should teams stack the box more when guarding the possible short passing attack employed by the Giants.

On a positive note, the Giants improved the right side of the offensive line with Kevin Zeitler and Mike Remmers, and second-year guard Will Hernadez will continue to grow next to Nate Solder.

News From The Past 90 Days
Daniel Jones named the Giants starter
Rookie QB gets the nod, Eli Manning benched
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Sep 17, 11:15 am

New York Giants
New York Giants (@Giants) on Twitter: "Daniel Jones has been named Giants starting QB" (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This means Eli Manning can be safely dropped, if you were still holding onto some hope of a resurgence for the veteran QB. The official tweet from the Giants came with a big picture of Jones -- a dead ringer for a young Jim Carrey -- staring awkwardly into the camera in his press photo. The Giants putrid offensive line won't help Jones pile up big fantasy stats, but the weak defense should help from a yardage standpoint. Still -- Jones is likely going to turn the ball over a lot when he's not giving it to stud RB Saquon Barkley, so he's not worth adding in most formats.


Injury Sterling Shepard ruled out for Week 2
Concussion
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 13, 12:40 pm

New York Giants
#NYGiants game statuses for Sunday: Out: WR Sterling Shepard (concussion), WR Darius Slayton (hamstring), TE Garrett Dickerson (quad) Questionable: WR Cody Latimer (calf) (Giants on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Shephard out and Latimer questionable it's going to be the Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram show against the Bills. Bennie Fowler, Russell Shepard and perhaps T.J. Jones will be change ups on the outside but expect the Giants to lean their running back and tight end in Week 2.
