New York Giants RB Devontae Booker rushed 12 times for 41 yards in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Rams, and he added four receptions for 28 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: Booker was getting a chance to fill in for the injured Saquon Barkley (ankle), and he didn't do much against a very tough defense in a lopsided game. The Giants are back in action against the Panthers in Week 7, and Booker is worth using as a RB3 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams if Barkley is out again.

New York Giants RB Devontae Booker rushed 16 times for 42 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Dallas Cowboys, coming in for the injured RB Saquon Barkley (ankle). He also had three catches for 16 yards and a score in four targets.
Huddle Up: Booker might be called upon to fill in for Barkley in Week 6, if the latter is unable to play. However, facing the Los Angeles Rams is an unfavorable matchup. Booker might be worth using as a RB4 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, with some value in DFS, too.

New York Giants RB Devontae Booker is the 'top option on all three downs' behind RB Saquon Barkley, according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Barkley still isn't a lock to be in the lineup for Week 1, and he could be limited to a degree early in the year regardless. With Booker looking like the primary backup, he is a priority handcuff for all Barkley owners.

New York Giants RB Devontae Booker was 'worth the price' the team paid in free agency because he is 'a three-down back' that 'only makes the Giants stronger,' according to general manager Dave Gettleman. New York inked Booker to a two-year contract worth $5.5 million earlier this spring.
Huddle Up: Booker may have a three-down skill set in theory because he is a capable receiver, but he's a replacement-level runner on his third team in three years and hasn't logged more than last year's 93 carries in a season since his rookie year in 2016. Moreover, Saquon Barkley, if he can stay healthy in 2021, will keep Booker on the sidelines for all but a few snaps per game. Booker's only value to fantasy owners is that of a low-end handcuff.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Devontae Booker (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Booker's offensive role will depend on if Josh Jacobs is able to play. He likely would receive most of the carries if Jacobs is ruled out but did not have much success in that role last week. Fantasy players probably can avoid Booker this week.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Devontae Booker (back) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 10.
Huddle Up: Booker's fantasy value will depend on if Josh Jacobs is able to play. He did not have much success last week but would still see a majority of the carries if Jacobs is out. He could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues if he starts.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Devontae Booker (back) was listed as a full participant at practice Wednesday, Dec. 9.
Huddle Up: Booker carried the ball 16 times for 50 yards with RB Josh Jacobs sidelined in Week 13. Booker will be a serviceable RB2 for as long as Jacobs remains out of the lineup, but he won't hold value once Jacobs returns.

Huddle Up: Booker received the start with Josh Jacobs sidelined and did not have much success against the Jets. His role for the next game is uncertain because Jacobs could return. Fantasy players probably should avoid Booker even if he starts again.
