New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) had 13 carries for 57 yards in Week 2 against the Washington Football Team. Barkley also caught two passes for 12 yards.
Huddle Up: Forty-one of Barkley's 57 yards came on one carry, meaning his remaining 12 covered just 16 yards combined. Now a year removed from a torn ACL, Barkley still doesn't look all the way back, and it's hard to argue with the idea of limiting his touches on a short week. We'll see what the extra days off do for him after getting two games under his belt. There's obviously RB1 potential with Barkley, but right now he's playing more like a RB3/flex.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) is officially active for the Week 2 game.
Huddle Up: Barkley is coming off a disappointing Week 1 performance and does not appear to be ready for a full workload at this point. He could be a No. 2 running back or flex option because of his big play ability, but fantasy players should not expect a big game from him.

Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 15, and is listed as questionable for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Barkley should be able to play despite the questionable tag, but fantasy players can check the inactive list for his official status. He likely will see limited touches if he is active but can still be a No. 2 running back or flex option in leagues.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) is questionable for Week 2 Thursday, Sept. 16.
Huddle Up: Barkley rushed 10 times for 26 yards in the season opener, and he's likely to go. However, can you trust him yet? He might be a flex consideration as crazy as that sounds.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) was limited during practice Tuesday, Sept. 14.
Huddle Up: Barkley will be in uniform for the Week 2 game but likely will continue to see a limited workload on offense. He can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues but is not a must-start option at this point.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) was limited during practice Monday, Sept. 13. The Giants did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Barkley is being eased back into the lineup after a major knee injury and received only 11 touches in the regular season opener. He probably will see a similar workload since it is a short week and can be a No. 2 fantasy back.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed 10 times for just 26 yards in Week 1 against the Denver Broncos, while adding one catch for just one yard on three targets.
Huddle Up: Barkley was a question mark going in, and most fantasy managers who activated him probably wish they didn't. He'll look to bounce back Thursday night on the road against the Washington Football Team, but the quick turnaround is tough for a guy who might not be at 100 percent quite yet.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) is officially active for the Week 1 game.
Huddle Up: Barkley will have a role in the offense, but he may not receive his normal workload since he has not played since early in the 2020 season. He can still be a starting option in fantasy leagues, but fantasy players may want to lower their expectations.
Posted: 9/12/2021 2:09 am GMT
New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) has been medically cleared and will play against the Denver Broncos in Week 1, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Barkley will probably have his reps limited to some degree in his return from knee surgery, but even with less than a full workload, he should be starting in fantasy leagues.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 10, and is listed as questionable for Week 1.
Huddle Up: Barkley has been making good progress in his recovery but could be a game-time decision this week. He may not receive his normal workload if he is active for the game but should still be a starting fantasy option in all fantasy leagues.
