2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
Injuries limited Barkley to just 13 games in 2019, including games in which Barkley played but was not entirely healthy. Despite this fact, the former first-round pick from Penn State posted nearly 1500 total yards and eight total touchdowns. His 14.8 fantasy points per game placed him just outside the top five at the position.

Like Christian McCaffrey, the thing that separates Barkley from other top running backs and the reason why he should be considered a top-3 pick is his volume in the passing game. Barkley was on pace for 90 targets after posting a ridiculous 91 receptions for 721 yards and four touchdowns on 121 targets as a rookie. Owning a back like Barkley is, in essence, like owning two players in one, especially in leagues that provide points per receptions.

According to FootballOutsiders.com, the Giants were plagued by subpar offensive line play, especially in the run-blocking department (ranked 25th out of 32 teams). The front office addressed this issue with the selection of tackle Andrew Thomas in the first round and tackle Matt Peart in the third.

When healthy, Barkley is one of the most physically talented backs in the league and has the ability to provide massive value on the ground and in the passing game. You could make the argument that he could be the No.1 overall player in drafts this summer, especially if Jones and the rest of the offense build on what they did last year.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Dion Lewis could be "best bet" in Giants backfield this week
DeVonta Freeman not ready, Wayne Gallman not as explosive
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Wed Sep 23, 10:35 am

New York Giants
Jordan Raanan is reporting that even with the signing of Devonta Freeman, Dion Lewis will play a substantial role in replacing Saquon Barkley, comparing him to "a plus version of James White in New England with a slightly bigger workload." (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: I'm in agreement. The Giants apparently trust Lewis in pass protection and he catches the ball well out of the backfield, so he's the obvious best bet this week. And he'll flourish beyond Week 3 even after Freeman gets acclimated, since the many negative game scripts could favor Lewis over Freeman and Wayne Gallman.


Giants are adding Devonta Freeman
Gaints looking to replace Saquon Barkely

There you go. #Giants are landing FA RB Devonta Freeman, pending tests. And he’ll have more than enough opportunities to re-establish himself. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: With Saquon Barkley (ACL) out for the season it was predictable that the Giants would be bring in a free agent. Freeman should establish himself as the lead back with Dion Lewis mixing in on passing downs. Lewis could have more fantasy value in the short-term but expect Freeman to be the back to own for the rest of the season.


Injury Giants fear torn ACL for Saquon Barkley
More tests Monday
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 20, 4:48 pm

New York Giants
Giants fear RB Saquon Barkley suffered a torn ACL today, sources tell me and @JordanRaanan. One source said the torn ACL was “certainly within the realm” but there will be more tests Monday to make a full and complete determination. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It's been a rough week for injuries including Barkley who will likely miss the remainder of the season. With Dion Lewis and Wayne Gallman next up on the depth chart it won't be shocking to see the Giants bring in a veteran for the remainder of the season.
