Week 3 at Houston Texans
Saquon Barkley only had 28 yards on 11 carries on Monday night against the Cowboys, but he also caught 14 balls for 80 yards, turning in a nice performance overall. Barkley is a tackle-breaking machine. It would be amazing to see what he could do with more support around him.
This week, Barkley faces a Texans defense that has struggled to look dominant to start the season, but still features a tremendous front seven. They’ve allowed over 100 yards on the ground in each of their first two games, and Barkley should be able to find space against them. Even if he struggles, he’s shown he can be one play away from a long touchdown, and also that a good receiving performance can overcome struggles running the ball. Barkley should be active in all leagues.
