New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rumbled 22 times for 189 yards and a touchdown while adding four grabs for 90 yards and a score on four targets in Week 16 against the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: This is the type of production fantasy owners envisioned from Barkley when they nabbed him in the first round, sometimes No. 1 overall, in drafts. Unfortunately many fantasy weren't around to enjoy it. The Giants finish up the regular season against the Philadelphia Eagles.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed 24 times for 112 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Week 15 against the Miami Dolphins while posting four grabs for 31 yards on five targets.
Huddle Up: Barkley rolled up big numbers for his fantasy owners when it mattered most, at least for those who own him and actually made the playoffs. He punished a poor Dolphins rush defense, and will look to do the same against the Redskins in D.C. next weekend.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley said he is feeling 'healthier and healthier' ahead of a Week 15 matchup with a Miami Dolphins team ranked 31st in the NFL in rushing defense.
Huddle Up: Barkley hasn't had a 100-yard rushing game since Week 2, and he has gone five straight games without scoring. He has been one of the bigger fantasy disappointments this season, but RB2 numbers should be possible in Week 15 with a friendly matchup on tap.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed 17 times for 66 yards in Week 14 against the Philadelphia Eagles and he added three catches for just one yard on four targets.
Huddle Up: Barkley was a first-round fantasy pick, and in some cases the No. 1 pick overall. However, he suffered a high-ankle sprain early in the season at Tampa, missed time, and has looked more like an RB2 or flex fantasy option at times lately with few bright spots. He'll look to right the ship in Week 15 against the visiting Miami Dolphins.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed for 83 yards on 19 carries against the Green Bay Packers in Week 13. He also caught three passes for 32 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Barkley bounced back after some disappointing performances over the last few weeks. He is one of the main focal points on offense for the Giants and should be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley has failed to score in three straight games and has been held to less than 3.5 yards per rush in four straight.
Huddle Up: Barkley refused to blame his recent struggles on injuries, but whatever the reason, he is just not producing at an elite level. A Week 13 matchup against a Green Bay defense that has been scuffling after a fast start could provide an opportunity for a rebound, but it is hard to expect more than RB2 numbers out of Barkley right now.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley was adamant Wednesday, Nov. 27, that his relatively poor play of late isn't the result of injury. 'Did I look hurt?' Barkley said, interrupting a question about a 22-yard run against the Chicago Bears in Week 12. 'I know that's where you're going towards (with this question). So did I look hurt? No. So let's stop making an excuse that I'm hurt. I'm not hurt. Let's stop making an excuse that I'm not 100%. No one's 100%.'
Huddle Up: Barkley started the season with two straight 100-yard games on the ground, but he hasn't topped 72 rushing yards in six games since and he hasn't found the end zone as a rusher since Week 7 (Week 8 as a pass-catcher). While he's running out of time to reward fantasy managers this season, he'll be among the top running backs selected in 2020 drafts in his first full season with QB Daniel Jones.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed 17 times a game-high 59 yards while adding two grabs for just one yard on three targets in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: It wasn't a great day, but that's the kind of defensive slog it was in Chicago. He'll face another tough matchup in Week 13 with the Green Bay Packers paying a visit.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed for one yard on 13 carries against the New York Jets in Week 10. He also caught five passes for 30 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Barkley was a disappointment for fantasy players this week but will look to bounce back against the Chicago Bears in Week 12. He should still be considered a must-start option because of his involvement in the running and passing game.
