Huddle Up: Barkley continues to be one of the most reliable fantasy options even though his team is struggling. He is a must-start option every week no matter the opponent.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed 11 times for 120 yards and caught four passes for 19 yards in a 35-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Barkley shredded the Cowboys with big runs, but the Giants quickly fell behind and had to abandon the run. As was the case last year, Barkley was able to flirt with RB1 numbers even when the team struggles.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley will not play in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 16, according to a source.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley will not play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 8.
Huddle Up: Barkley may not receive a lot of playing time during the preseason because he will be the focal point on offense for the Giants this season. He should be one of the first players selected in fantasy drafts this season.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley led all running backs with 12 runs of at least 25 yards in 2018.
Huddle Up: In the actual draft, the Giants were ripped for not taking a QB, but those who went with Barkley in their fantasy drafts weren't left disappointed. Now, entering Year 2, he's a legit candidate to go with the No. 1-overall pick in drafts.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley said he is not worried about his workload. 'I don't think any number is too high for me,' Barkley said. 'Whether it's 350 touches, 400 touches or less touches.'
Huddle Up: Barkley tallied 352 total touches as a rookie, leading the NFL with 2,028 total yards from scrimmage and scoring 15 times. As the unquestioned centerpiece of the offense, he should probably be the No. 1 pick in all fantasy formats in 2019.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley said Thursday, April 18, he fails to understand the critics who said the Giants should've selected a quarterback over him in the 2018 NFL Draft. 'If a Rookie of the Year (award) doesn't sway that mindset I don't know what will,' Barkley said.
Huddle Up: The criticism certainly didn't come from Barkley's fantasy owners as the rookie dazzled to the tune of 2,028 scrimmage yards and 15 touchdowns last season. And even if the Giants somehow bypass on drafting a QB again this spring, Barkley is the leading candidate to be the first pick in fantasy drafts this summer.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley was named the 2018 Offensive Rookie of the Year Saturday, Feb. 2.
Huddle Up: Barkley's 2,028 scrimmage yards were the most in the NFL this year and the third most by a rookie back. He also set a record for a rookie running back by catching 91 passes and was one of two players to finish the year with 1,000-plus rushing yards and 700-plus receiving yards. He's in the mix to be the No. 1 overall pick in 2019.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley has been named the 2018 Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year, as decided by an online vote of fans.
Huddle Up: Barkley's fantasy owners certainly should've voted as he finished tops among RBs in PPR scoring and finished second to Todd Gurley in standard leagues. And after also finishing second with 352 total touches, he'll be a legit No. 1-overall pick candidate in re-draft leagues this summer.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley said he left 'so many' big plays on the field in 2018. 'You're going to leave plays on the field, but you can learn from it and you can get better,' Barkley said.
Huddle Up: Barkley finished his rookie year with 2,028 yards from scrimmage, 15 touchdowns and 91 receptions, so his production didn't exactly suffer because of some missed opportunities. He will likely be a top-five pick in all fantasy formats in 2019.
