  • Booker will be the Giants' No. 1 running back Sunday against the Rams with Saquon Barkley (ankle) ruled out, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. After Barkley's early departure Week 5 at Dallas, Booker handled just about all of the RB work, logging 60 of 68 offensive snaps en route to 58 total yards and two TDs on 19 touches. Booker aside, only fullback Elijaah Penny had snaps (six on offense) and a touch (a four-yard carry), while rookie sixth-rounder Gary Brightwell only saw action on special teams (16 plays) among the Giants' options out of the backfield. Booker will take on a Rams defense Sunday that has given up the 14th-most yards from scrimmage per game (135.8) and four touchdowns to running backs in five contests this season.

  • Booker rushed 16 times for 42 yards and a touchdown and brought in three of four targets for 16 yards and another score in the Giants' 44-20 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday. Booker took on an exponentially larger role than usual with Saquon Barkley exiting the game for good in the first quarter with a rolled left ankle. The journeyman turned in a solid performance considering he had to play a significant portion of the game against a defense that didn't have to worry about Daniel Jones (concussion), Barkley, Kenny Golladay (knee), Darius Slayton (hamstring) and Sterling Shepard (hamstring). Booker's one-yard touchdown run late in the second quarter and his three-yard scoring grab late in the fourth gave a bit of extra fuel to what should already be robust waiver-wire appeal in coming days; Barkley, who Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports was seen with crutches and a walking boot after the game, appears likely to miss the Week 6 contest versus the Rams, at minimum.

  • Booker recorded one carry for six yards and caught his only target for six yards in Sunday's 27-21 win over the Saints. With Saquon Barkley finally looking once again like the star running back the Giants drafted in 2018, Booker was an afterthought in the offense Sunday. It will be difficult for him to be anything more than a serviceable backup who can spell Barkley when he needs a rest, as the latter's three-down skill set should afford him a heavy workload. Booker's best bet for fantasy production would come if Barkley were to get hurt again. Next up for the Giants in Week 5 is a divisional matchup against the surging Cowboys.

  • Booker (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Sunday versus the Falcons, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. With Booker's deactivation, the Giants finally may be comfortable with Saquon Barkley taking on his customary huge workload out of the backfield. In any case, Booker will yield backup duties to rookie Gary Brightwell, who likely will see most of his action on special teams Sunday.

  • Booker recorded two carries for nine yards while hauling in his lone target for two yards in Thursday's 30-29 loss to Washington. Although Saquon Barkley was questionable for Thursday's Week 2 matchup as he continues to recover from his 2020 knee surgery, he played 84 percent of the team's offensive snaps. As a result, Booker was on the field for just 14 percent of the offensive snaps and recorded three touches. The 2016 fourth-rounder should continue to see a minimal role while Barkley is healthy.
