Saquon returned to a limited session on Thursday after missing Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury. Saquon has struggled along with the rest of the Giants offense this season, and battling an ankle injury is not going to help matters. His return to practice is a good sign for his availability against the Chicago Bears, but we will get a better idea of his status for this weekend following the release of Friday's final injury report. Saquon is currently our 21st ranked running back for Week 17.
NYG RB Saquon Barkley - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Chicago Bears
Saquon Barkley had 15 carries and one reception for just 28 total yards last week against the Eagles. He’s been splitting passing downs with Devontae Booker and this looks like a lost season for the Giants offense.
This week, Barkley faces a Bears defense that ranks 23rd in aFPA to opposing running backs. Watch the injury report carefully, as he may get shut down. He was seen limping a little on the sidelines according to our own Adam Hutchison. If he does start, in a nice matchup, he’s a fringe RB2 option, but have a backup plan ready.
