Draft note
by John Paulsen
Barkley will once again be the centerpiece of the Giants’ offense, though prospective owners should be aware that he scored roughly 17% fewer fantasy points in the four games that Odell Beckham missed last season. The Giants are likely to be bad, but Barkley’s usage should be there even if he doesn’t get as many scoring opportunities.

NYG RB Saquon Barkley - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Saquon Barkley had another great game last week against the Bills, rushing for 107 yards and a touchdown and adding 28 yards on three receptions. With 36 touches through two games, despite both being losses, Barkley’s workload alone gives him a high floor in any given week. His elite talent makes him a must-start in any matchup. Rookie Daniel Jones won’t need to be very good to be an improvement over what Eli Manning has done the past two games, so Barkley’s value shouldn’t be affected by the change at quarterback.

This week, Barkley faces a Buccaneers defense that did a phenomenal job bottling up Christian McCaffrey last week, and held the 49ers running backs to 3.33 yards per carry in Week 1. Still, regardless of the matchup, Barkley should be in for another game with 18 touches and elite production. We have him ranked as a top-five fantasy option in all leagues and there’s obviously no reason to consider sitting him.
