Coming off a backup role in Las Vegas, Devontae Booker should see a similar situation in New York, with Saquon Barkey returning from injury. Booker has shown pass-catching prowess in his past, so could see a decent amount of work should Barkley sustain an injury again in 2021.
NYG RB Saquon Barkley - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 2 at Chicago Bears
Saquon Barkley had an extremely frustrating day against the Steelers on Monday night, with just six yards on 15 carries. He was often hit right as he got the handoff and was visibly bothered by his lack of production. Luckily, he somewhat salvaged the fantasy day with six catches and 60 yards receiving, but it was definitely not the way fantasy owners wanted to start the season.
He should rebound against Chicago this week. The Bears just allowed Adrian Peterson to rush for 93 yards on 14 carries after only about a week on the roster, so Barkley should have an opportunity to score big here. The Bears are really missing Eddie Goldman in the middle of their defensive line, so expect Barkley to find plenty of space in the heart of this defense and to put up great numbers. Barkley should always be active in all lineups for as long as he’s healthy.
