New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley averaged 131 rushing yards on 6.24 yards per carry in the final three games of the 2019 season, and he scored five of his eight total touchdowns in that span.
Huddle Up: Barkley battled an ankle injury in what was a disappointing sophomore campaign, but he flashed his upside in the final weeks. Not only is he a first-round pick in all fantasy formats, but he could be off the board as soon as No. 2 overall.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley, who is entering the third-year of his rookie contract, doesn't sound concerned about getting a new contract at some point. 'I'm a big believer in taking care of the little things first. I'm going to be the best player and leader I can be. If I take care of that, the rest will take care of itself,' Barkley said. He also noted he was excited to see the team adding to the offensive line during the NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Barkley had a bit of a down year in his sophomore season, but he missed some games and the Giants were in transition. He remains a RB1 entering the 2020 season and you should hear his name called in the first round of all drafts.

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.
