Week 14 at Philadelphia Eagles
Saquon Barkley rebounded a bit last week against the Packers, getting 22 touches, including three receptions for a total of 115 yards from scrimmage. Most notably, he averaged 4.4 yards per carry, his most since Week 2. Barkley has been trying to get back to his elite production on the ground, as he’s failed to gain 100 rushing yards in his past seven games. It’s a good thing he’s averaging 4.2 receptions and 32.3 receiving yards per game this season to help supplement his totals.
The Eagles rank 12th in aFPA to opposing running backs this year, so it won’t be super easy for Barkley to get back on track, but his workload and return to 100-plus yards from scrimmage a week ago provide some confidence in starting him anyway. He should continue to be a workhorse for the downtrodden Giants and should be active in all leagues.
