RB Saquon Barkley didn’t need any special treatment this week. Was just a random back spasm on second TD. Nothing more.

Fantasy Impact:

Barkley landed awkwardly after leaping toward the end zone for a TD. He was slow to get up, but despite all that is good for Thursday night's Week 6 matchup. Barkey didn't need an MRI.

Scouting Report

Week 11 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Saquon Barkley had another quiet day by his standards against the 49ers on Monday night, rushing for only 67 yards. However, he added 33 yards on four receptions, putting him at 100 total yards on the day. He also carried the ball 20 times, a number that helps keep Barkley’s floor very high. He should continue to be one of the most consistent fantasy backs in the league moving forward.

This week, Barkley faces a Buccaneers team that has allowed 14 touchdowns to opposing running backs this year, including three through the air. Barkley is a must-start every week, but he’s especially valuable in a great matchup. We have him as an elite option and he should be active in all leagues.
