    Giants' Saquon Barkley: Ready for huge workload

    Saquon Barkley said there's no number of touches that's too much for him to handle,'s Matt Lombardo reports.Pat Shurmur said he doesn't plan to give Barkley more touches than the 352 he handled last season, but the coach didn't say anything about a reduction. The context surrounding the 22-year-old changed drastically this offseason, with Big Blue swapping out Odell Beckham Jr. for Golden Tate at wide receiver while also acquiring upgrades at right guard (Kevin Zeitler) and right tackle (Mike Remmers). The big problem is the quarterback room, where first-round pick Daniel Jones is expected to spend his rookie year serving as Eli Manning's backup. To have any shot at staying competitive, the New York Giants will need Barkley to be healthy and spectacular.

    Giants' Saquon Barkley: Massive rookie season

    Saquon Barkley finished his rookie season as the NFL's top running back in terms of PPR scoring, narrowly edging out the Panthers' Christian McCaffrey. He also became the third rookie to eclipse 2,000 yards from scrimmage (Eric Dickerson, Edgerrin James).Barkley's strong showing was thanks in large part to his NFL rookie-record 91 catches to go along with 15 total score. He'll be among the top few players off the board in 2019 fantasy drafts, if not first overall. If the New York Giants can complement Barkley with improved quarterback play, the sky is the limit for the 21-year-old.

    Giants' Saquon Barkley: Career-low 56 offensive yards

    Saquon Barkley rushed for 31 yards on 14 carries, adding four receptions for 25 yards during Sunday's 17-0 loss to Tennessee.Widely considered to be a generational talent before taking his first NFL snap, Barkley averaged 134.8 offensive yards per game through his first 13 appearances as a pro, never once dipping below 94 yards in any outing. That is, until he ran into the buzz saw that is the Titans defense, a unit that's held opponents to 14 or fewer points on six occasions this season. Barkley was completely neutralized by the Tennessee front seven, putting forth 56 total yards -- an output 40.4 percent beneath his previous career low. His 2.2 yards per rush average established a new career worst. Meanwhile, he also continued a curious streak of ineffectiveness in the passing game, one that's seen him compile no more than 27 receiving yards over any of his past three outings while failing to record a touchdown during that span (52.8 YPG and four receiving scores through Week 12). The still incredibly reliable Barkley will look to rebound in Week 16 against Indianapolis, facing a Colts defense that entered Sunday allowing the second-most running back receptions this season (91).

Of course, the Redskins and New York Giants have gone in opposite directions since that contest.

    Giants' Saquon Barkley: Produces in tough matchup

    Saquon Barkley rushed 24 times for 125 yards and brought in three of four targets for 21 yards in the New York Giants' 30-27 overtime win over the Bears on Sunday.Barkley eclipsed the century mark on the ground for the third straight game, although he was less involved in the passing game than in some other recent contests. After scuffling for running room for multiple games this season, the Giants offensive line seems to be opening up lanes more consistently for the 2018 second overall pick. Barkley has averaged between 5.2 and 7.8 yards per rush in his last three games, which bodes well for his fantasy outlook as he heads into a Week 14 battle versus the Redskins.

    Saquon Barkley carried 13 times for 101 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Eagles. He also caught seven passes for an additional 41 yards and a touchdown in the 25-22 loss.Barkley was outstanding in the first half, scoring a rushing and receiving touchdown while racking up over 100 scrimmage yards. He received considerably less work in the second half and wasn't nearly as effective, which is somewhat hard to fathom considering his team enjoyed a lead heading into the fourth quarter. While he could have had an even bigger day, Barkley still managed another excellent performance and is now up to 12 total touchdowns this season. He'll look to build on this effort next Sunday against the Bears.
