Barkley carried the ball 17 times for 92 yards and a touchdown and caught three of four targets for 25 yards in Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Eagles. Most of his production came on a 68-yard TD run late in the third quarter that proved to be the final points of the season for the Giants. Barkley had a strong finish to 2019, gaining 539 scrimmage yards and five touchdowns over the final three games, and on the season he amassed 1,003 rushing yards and six TDs on the ground while catching 52 of 73 targets for 438 yards and two more scores despite missing three games with an ankle injury. Assuming he can stay healthy next year, expect Barkley to put together numbers more like his dynamic rookie season, especially if Daniel Jones continues to develop and prevents defenses from being able to stack the box.
Barkley carried 22 times for 189 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Redskins. He also caught four passes for 90 yards and another score in the 41-35 win. Barkley gashed the Washington run defense for 8.6 yards per carry, with his best effort resulting in a 67-yard touchdown in the first quarter. He was also a huge factor in the passing game, adding a 33-yard touchdown catch en route to his best receiving output of the season. Barkley now has 422 yards from scrimmage to go along with four touchdowns over the last two weeks, and he'll look to finish the season strong next Sunday at home against the Eagles.
Barkley rushed 24 times for 112 yards and two touchdowns while adding four catches for 31 yards on five targets in Sunday's 36-20 win over the Dolphins. Barkley doubled his season rushing touchdown total, converting from one yard out in the third quarter and adding a 10-yard score six seconds into the fourth. He also topped 100 yards on the ground for the first time since Week 2. Barkley hasn't lived up to his billing as an early first-round pick in most fantasy drafts, but all will be forgiven if he continues to shine when it matters most in the fantasy playoffs. He had a potential third rushing score vultured by Javorius Allen with the game out of hand late, but Barkley nonetheless delivered his best performance of the season. The second-year running back will look to build on this effort when the Giants visit Washington in Week 16.
Barkley rushed 17 times for 66 yards and caught three of four targets for one yard in Monday night's 23-17 overtime loss to the Eagles. Barkley was bottled up fairly well, as his long rush of the night went for only 11 yards. The tailback also barely produced anything in the passing game, keeping him under 100 scrimmage yards for the sixth time over his last eight outings. With just two touchdowns over that same span, Barkley has certainly struggled some in his second season, but he next faces a Dolphins defense that's surrendered the third-most total yards and rushing yards thus far, offering hope for improvement in Week 15.
Barkley ran for 83 yards on 19 carries and added 32 yards on three catches during Sunday's 31-13 loss to the Packers. Barkley was a strong play Sunday against a strong pass defense in wintery elements, and the sophomore back didn't disappoint, topping 100 yards from scrimmage for the first time since Week 8. Barkley has incredible talent but has struggled both with an ankle injury earlier in the season and defenses keying on him with rookie Daniel Jones under center. He averaged 137.0 yards from scrimmage per game and a touchdown in two outings with Eli Manning, while he's mustered 80.1 such yards per game with just two total touchdowns in seven games with Jones. Next up is a stingy Eagles run defense.
