    Giants' Devontae Booker: Furnishes 69 total yards in start

    Devontae Booker rushed 12 times for 41 yards and secured all four targets for 28 yards in the New York Giants' 38-11 loss to the Rams on Sunday.As the final score implies, game script put a significant crimp on Booker's overall rushing opportunities. However, the veteran back acquitted himself well when he did have a chance to touch the ball, serving as a valuable outlet option for Daniel Jones through the air while making the best of limited running room. Booker will be set for another start Week 7 against a tough Panthers defense if Saquon Barkley (ankle) remains out for another contest.

    Giants' Devontae Booker: In line for spot start Sunday

    Devontae Booker will be the New York 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.

    Giants' Devontae Booker: Two TDs as Barkley replacement

    Devontae 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 New York 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.

    Giants' Devontae Booker: Limited role in win

    Devontae 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 New York 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.

    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.
