Giants' Saquon Barkley: Finds end zone in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Giants' Saquon Barkley: Piles up 279 scrimmage yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Giants' Saquon Barkley: Delivers best game of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Giants' Saquon Barkley: Quiet against Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Giants' Saquon Barkley: Tallies 115 yards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Giants' Saquon Barkley: Limited in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barkley rushed 17 times for 59 yards and caught two of three targets for one yard in Sunday's 19-14 loss to the Bears.

Chicago's defense did a good job of limiting Barkley, especially as a receiver out of the backfield, as he set season lows in both catches and receiving yards. Barkley has been mostly a decoy in the red zone, as he remains stuck on just two rushing touchdowns and one receiving score this season. He's also failed to eclipse 100 yards on the ground since doing so in each of the season's first two games. Barkley will hope to get back on track when the Packers come to town in Week 13.

Giants' Saquon Barkley: Not on Wednesday's report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barkley (shoulder) wasn't listed on the Giants' injury report Wednesday.

Coming off a Week 11 bye, Barkley is past the shoulder injury that he picked up in the Giants' last game Nov. 10 against the Jets. In the aftermath of his worst performance of the season -- 18 touches for 31 yards from scrimmage -- he relayed he has no desire to be rested at any point down the stretch, per Jordan Raanan of With his health now intact, Barkley will turn his focus first to Sunday's matchup with the Bears, whose defense has allowed 129.7 yards from scrimmage per game and 11 touchdowns to running backs in 10 contests this season.

Giants' Saquon Barkley: Plans on maintaining big workload
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barkley (shoulder) has no interest in being rested down the stretch of this season, Jordan Raanan of reports. "The mindset of sitting me out and resting me for the rest of the season is beyond me," Barkley said. "I do not agree with it. It won't happen."

Barkley heads into a Week 11 bye nursing a minor shoulder injury, and he may also be dealing with some impact from the high-ankle sprain he suffered in September. However, he said health hasn't been a factor in his recent struggles on the ground, noting that he's still been able to make defenders miss when he's found some open space. With his shoulder expected to be fine, Barkley likely will handle his usual workload when the Giants return to action Week 12 in Chicago. The idea of scaling back his touches at the very end of the season isn't crazy, but the Giants didn't take that approach when they dropped out of contention last season, as the running back averaging 18 carries and four catches per game in five December appearances, including an 83 percent snap share and 142 scrimmage yards Week 17.

Giants' Saquon Barkley: Dealing with shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barkley underwent an X-ray on his shoulder after Sunday's 34-27 loss to the Jets, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Barkley sat out Weeks 4 through 6 due to a high right ankle sprain. In four games in the meantime, he's been bottled up on the ground, posting increasingly worse YPC marks, with the nadir a 13-carry, one-yard performance versus the Jets. Despite the less-than-stellar work as a rusher, he's made his usual contributions through the air, averaging 5.5 catches for 46 yards per game. While his shoulder appears to be what's hindering him at the moment, Barkley will benefit from the Giants' Week 11 bye, with the team next taking the field Nov. 24 at Chicago.

Giants' Saquon Barkley: Team encouraged after X-rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pat Shurmur said Monday that Barkley is feeling much better after the running back was banged up in the aftermath of Sunday's 34-27 loss to the Jets.

The Giants haven't specified a particular injury for Barkley, who was sent in for an X-ray following the Week 10 loss. According to Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post, Shurmur expressed that he was pleased with the results of Barkley's examination and indicated that the Giants have no plans to shut down their franchise back for the season. Since returning from a three-week absence due to a high right ankle sprain, Barkley has struggled to find open running room over the Giants' past four games, gaining just 165 yards on 64 rushes (2.6 YPC). A Week 11 bye should prove helpful to Barkley while he looks to rest up and regain health ahead of the Giants' next game Nov. 24 versus the Bears.

Giants' Saquon Barkley: Banged up in loss to Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barkley rushed 13 times for one yard and caught all five of his targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 34-27 loss to the Jets.

You read that right. Barkley mustered just one yard on the ground. He looked like a shell of himself throughout the game, and it was revealed postgame that he's going in for an X-ray. When pressed on the topic, coach Pat Shurmur wouldn't elaborate besides saying that Barkley got banged-up. With the Giants now 2-8, it wouldn't be surprising to see Barkley miss time rather than continue trying to play at less than 100 percent.

Giants' Saquon Barkley: Held to one big play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barkley rushed 14 times for 28 yards and caught six of eight targets for 67 yards in Monday night's 37-18 loss to the Cowboys.

Barkley was bottled up on the ground, where his longest rush of the night went for only eight yards. Nonetheless, he was able to explode for a 65-yard reception during the second half, somewhat salvaging a down performance. In fact, other than the Week 3 game in which he hurt his ankle and was forced to exit early, Monday marked Barkley's first contest this season with neither 100 scrimmage yards nor a touchdown. The superstar tailback will look to bounce back in Week 10, but his matchup against a Jets defense currently leading the league with only 3.1 yards allowed per rush may complicate matters.

Giants' Saquon Barkley: Scores receiving touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barkley carried 19 times for 64 yards while catching eight of 10 targets for 79 yards and another score during Sunday's 31-26 loss to the Lions.

Barkley struggled to run the ball for the second straight game, averaging just 3.4 yards per carry against a respectable Lions front. He made up for it by nearly doubling his receiving yardage total for the season and adding a four-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter. Although Barkley's ankle injury disrupted his start to the campaign, he has exceeded 130 scrimmage yards three times in five appearances while adding three total touchdowns. His next opportunity to contribute will come in a Week 9 Monday night matchup at home against the Cowboys.

Giants' Saquon Barkley: Upgrades to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barkley (ankle) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post reports.

Coming out of his return last weekend following a three-game absence due to a right high-ankle sprain, Barkley experienced some lingering soreness, but it was never viewed as a major concern. After a limited showing in the Giants' first practice of Week 8 a day earlier, Barkley erased any concern about his health by putting in a full workout Thursday. He'll fill his normal three-down role Sunday against the Lions and profiles as one of the top fantasy plays at running back this week.

Giants' Saquon Barkley: Limited to begin week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barkley (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Coach Pat Shurmur said Wednesday that Barkley is dealing with "game soreness" and is expected to suit up Week 8, per Duggan. Barkley returned to action in last weekend's loss to the Cardinals after missing the previous three contests due to a right high-ankle sprain. Barring any setbacks, it appears the star running back will be a go for Sunday's game against the Lions, despite starting the week limited.

Giants' Saquon Barkley: Reaches end zone in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barkley notched 18 carries for 72 yards and one touchdown while reeling in three of five targets for eight yards during Sunday's 27-21 loss to the Cardinals.

Afterward, Barkley elaborated on his return from three games missed due to a high right ankle sprain. "I think I did fine. I know I felt fine, but didn't do enough to help my team win," he told Darryl Slater of The Newark Star-Ledger. "I was able to take my normal workload. Physically, I feel good." At one point in the third quarter, Barkley had the ankle re-taped, but otherwise he seemed to be back to normal, as no other Giants running back earned a touch Sunday. He'll aim to be closer to his dynamic self Week 8 versus the Lions.

Giants' Saquon Barkley: No injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barkley (ankle) logged another full practice Friday and doesn't have a game designation on the final injury report for Sunday's matchup with the Cardinals.

A full participant throughout the week, Barkley has declared himself ready for his usual workload in a prime matchup with the struggling Arizona defense. Coach Pat Shurmur declined to comment on the star running back when he talked to the media after Friday's practice, per Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record.

Giants' Saquon Barkley: Hoping for usual workload Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barkley (ankle) said Thursday that there's "no doubt" in his mind he can handle a full workload Sunday versus the Cardinals, Darryl Slater of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Barkley's comments were made after he managed another full practice Thursday, his second in as many days. Despite the positive development, the Giants still may give him a game-day designation upon the release of Friday's injury report. Barkley aside, the Giants' backfield seems to be getting healthier, as Wayne Gallman practiced fully Thursday as he works his way through the concussion protocol. Ultimately, Barkley's workload this weekend may be contingent on which of the team's running backs are active.

Giants' Saquon Barkley: Logs full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barkley (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Barkley's full participation offers a strong sign that he'll be ready to go for Sunday's contest against the Cardinals after missing the previous three games due to a high-ankle sprain. Tight end Evan Engram (knee) was also listed as a full participant Wednesday, so rookie quarterback Daniel Jones will likely benefit from the return of two of his top weapons Week 7.

Giants' Saquon Barkley: Working through individual drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barkley (ankle) is going through individual drills at the beginning of Wednesday's practice, Jordan Raanan of reports.

The same goes for Evan Engram (knee) and Sterling Shepard (concussion), with the Giants looking to get back to full strength for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Each of the three are likely headed for a "limited" designation on the Wednesday practice report, but it isn't out of the question for Barkley or one of the others to log a full practice.
