NorthJersey.com - [Full Article]

Awards season has begun for Saquon Barkley, and he's picked up his first honor.

The Giants' sensational running back has been named Offensive Rookie of the Year by the Pro Football Writers Association. Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield was voted Rookie of the Year by the PFWA, likely signaling more split votes coming for the players who were selected 1-2 in the NFL Draft back in April.

Fantasy Impact:

It could be just the beginning of the awards for Barkley, who led the NFL with 2,028 scrimmage yards and joined Eric Dickerson and Edgerin James as the only rookies with at least 2,000 scrimmage yards. Barkley and Mayfield are also finalists for the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year – voted on by the fans – and remain the favorites to win the Offensive Rookie of the Year award given out by the league on the eve of Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta next month during its NFL Honors program.

Scouting Report

Week 17 vs. Dallas Cowboys

Saquon Barkley only put up 77 yards from scrimmage last week against the Colts, but he scored his 14th touchdown of the season. Barkley has been everything the Giants hoped for with the second pick in the draft this season, with 87 receptions and 1,886 yards from scrimmage. He gets a full workload every week and he’s the main cog in the Giants’ offense.

This week Barkley remains a must-start to finish the season. While the Cowboys allow the ninth-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs, Barkley has been matchup-proof this year. He managed 108 yards and 14 receptions the last time he faced the Cowboys, and he should be active again in all league formats.
