Draft note
by John Paulsen
Barkley played one full game last season before tearing his ACL in Week 2. In Week 1, he carried the ball 15 times for six yards and caught six passes for 60 yards against the Steelers. He was the No. 10 fantasy back (half-PPR) in 2019, though he played just 13 games and owned the No. 6 per game average. He was famously the No. 1 running back as a rookie back in 2018. Barkley’s ACL tear is not a major concern–top running backs, especially young ones, tend to make a full recovery–but the Giants’ offensive line is one of the worst in the league, and one wonders if the Giants will limit his workload as he works his way back from injury.

NYG RB Saquon Barkley - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at Dallas Cowboys

Saquon Barkley put up a stat line reminiscent of his rookie season last week against the Saints. He had 13 carries and five receptions for a total of 126 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a surprise Giants victory. It’s good to see Barkley looking more like himself, and fantasy managers should be happy to see his touches and his activity in the passing game reach expectations.

This week, Barkley faces a Cowboys defense that ranks seventh in aFPA to opposing running backs. Still, that usage and return to heavy work in the passing game makes him a must-start in all formats. We have him ranked inside our top 10 this week, and he’s an RB1 with additional upside in PPR leagues.
