    Giants' Devontae Booker: Sitting out Sunday

    Devontae Booker (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Sunday versus the Falcons, Dan Salomone of the New York 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.

    Giants' Devontae Booker: Limited work against Washington

    Devontae 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.

    Giants' Devontae Booker: Small backup role in opener

    Devontae Booker had four carries for seven yards and caught his lone target for six yards Sunday against the Broncos.If this is Booker's output when Saquon Barkley is limited, you can imagine what it might be when Barkley's carrying the full load again. Booker is the clear backup at least, so if Barkley were to get hurt again, the former would see a decent workload behind one of the league's worst offensive lines.

    Giants' Devontae Booker: Garners eight touches

    Devontae Booker rushed seven times for 14 yards and caught his only target for three yards in Sunday's 22-20 preseason loss to the Patriots.Booker started ahead of Corey Clement, but despite a relatively large preseason workload, he couldn't get much going against New England's defense. In comparison, Clement rushed four times for 24 yards but was not targeted. As Booker now approaches the regular season, he's seemingly still the favorite to serve as Saquon Barkley's (knee) top backup, which could lend itself to more opportunities if Barkley is slowed at all in the early going, beginning with Week 1's matchup versus the Broncos.

    Giants' Devontae Booker: Starts and scores

    Devontae Booker rushed six times for 27 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 17-13 preseason loss to the Browns. He also caught both his targets for 13 yards.Booker was highly involved on his two drives as New York's starting running back, capping his performance with a one-yard touchdown plunge. Corey Clement then entered the game and finished with nine carries for 30 yards. With star tailback Saquon Barkley still working his way back from last year's knee injury, Booker and Clement are the top candidates to benefit from extra snaps, and Booker made a strong case Sunday to land the No. 2 job. Booker will hope to cement that role with another good showing in the New York Giants' exhibition finale next Sunday versus the Patriots.

    Giants' Devontae Booker: Top option behind Barkley

    Devontae Booker rushed three times for 12 yards and wasn't targeted in the passing game in Saturday's 12-7 preseason loss to the Jets.Star starter Saquon Barkley is still working his way back from knee surgery and may need to be eased back in during the first few weeks of the regular season, so whichever alternative option locks down the next spot on the depth chart could see a meaningful workload once the games start to count. Booker got the New York Giants' first three carries, suggesting he's next in line for touches after Barkley at this point. Corey Clement came in after Booker and gained 32 yards on five carries, but Clement's lost fumble inside the Jets' five-yard line didn't do him any favors in his quest to usurp Booker as Barkley's top backup. Booker should see more playing time in Week 2 of preseason against the Browns.

    Giants' Devontae Booker: Facing challenge from Clement?

    Devontae Booker has been working as the New York Giants' top running back at training camp, but he's been outplayed by Corey Clement so far, according to Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com.The Giants gave Booker a two-year, $6 million contract with the thought he'd be their lead back if Saquon Barkley (knee) wasn't ready for Week 1. That's likely still the plan, but it's interesting to hear that Clement is building a case for a role of his own. The Giants also have Alfred Morris on hand for veteran backfield depth, plus rookie sixth-round pick Gary Brightwell. Meanwhile, Barkley remains on the PUP list, with Ian Rapoport of NFL Network suggesting the 2018 first-round pick will make his 2021 debut at some point between Weeks 1 and 3.

    Giants' Devontae Booker: Lands with Giants

    Devontae Booker signed a two-year, $6 million deal with the New York Giants on Monday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.Booker saw his workload spike in 2020, as he tallied 93 rushes and 17 receptions with Las Vegas. He showed decent explosiveness, breaking off four runs of more than 20 yards while also finding the end zone on three occasions. Booker isn't likely to get a heavy workload in 2021, though he'll complement Saquon Barkley (knee) in the Giants backfield.

    Raiders' Devontae Booker: Dealt over 100 touches in 2020

    Devontae Booker, who rushed five times for 16 yards in Sunday's 32-31 win over the Broncos, finished the 2020 season with 93 carries for 423 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games. He also added 17 receptions for 84 yards on 21 targets.Booker, who tallied two total carries of 20-plus yards throughout his first four seasons in the league with Denver, compiled four such runs in his first campaign as a Raider. Booker's season was highlighted by a Week 10 performance against his former team that included 16 carries for 81 yards and a pair of scores in just 26 offensive snaps. The 28-year-old cooled off down the stretch, however, averaged 4.0 yards per carry or less in each of the team's final seven contests. He's slated to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, so Booker's future in Las Vegas is uncertain at this point.

    Raiders' Devontae Booker: No room to run Saturday

    Devontae Booker rushed six times for 11 yards and caught two passes on as many targets for eight yards in Saturday's 26-25 loss to the Dolphins.Booker averaged just 2.38 yards per touch in Week 16 while starter Josh Jacobs surpassed the 5.0 yards per carry mark on 13 rushes. Despite the Las Vegas Raiders officially being eliminated from playoff contention, Jacobs figures to stay featured out of the backfield during the team's upcoming season finale in Denver.
