RB Saquon Barkley brings an all new element to the Giants offense, per HC Nick Sirianni

Speaking with NFL Network Insider Tom Pelissero at the Annual League Meeting on Sunday, Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni noted how excited he is about the addition.

""I'm really excited about Saquon and the things that he can do," Sirianni said. "You know he's such a dynamic football player. Both as a running back and also the things he can do as a pass catcher. He's going to bring an element to our offense and to our team. As much as we see him, all the highlights that we see on the tape -- from my understanding and all of our homework he's a good leader and teammate, as well. To be able to add that into our locker room, and not only the playmaking ability, but the person, is really important."

Fantasy Impact: 

Barkley should fill the role(s) of not only D'Andre Swift, but also Boston Scott, as the team let both walk in free agency while signing the veteran. Barkley is more than capable at filling both spots on the lineup card, and could be eating into Gainwell's touches as well. As long as he's healthy, he's a locked-in RB1.
