    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley is 'just scratching the surface of his talent,' according to QB Eli Manning.

    Huddle Up: Barkley has been one of the few bright spot for the 1-5 Giants, and he is on pace for more than 2,000 total yards and more than 100 catches. As crazy as it sounds, his numbers could actually improve if the passing attack can ever find a rhythm.

  • Posted: 10/11/2018 8:43pm ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed 13 times for 130 yards and a touchdown and caught nine passes for 99 yards in a 34-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Barkley was the lone bright spot in an otherwise ugly performance for New York's offense. The Giants look to be headed for one of the top picks in next year's draft, but Barkley should still produce RB1 numbers in the meantime.

  • Posted: 10/7/2018 5:21pm ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) rushed 15 times for 48 yards in Week 5 against the Carolina Panthers and he added four catches for 81 yards and two touchdowns. On his second score, he appears to roll his ankle jumping into the end zone.

    Huddle Up: Barkley immediately went to the sideline for treatment from a trainer, but he was up and celebrating with his teammates shortly thereafter his score. If he pops up on the injury report in the upcoming week, you'll know why, but he should be OK for Thursday's game against the Eagles in Week 6.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 8:58pm ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed 10 times for 44 yards and a touchdown and caught six passes for 56 yards in a 33-18 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: His rushing numbers haven't been spectacular, but his versatility has allowed him to reach 100 total yards in all four games this year. His role as a workhorse back makes him a weekly RB1 candidate.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 2:18pm ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed for 82 yards and one touchdown on 17 carries against the Houston Texans in Week 3. He also caught five passes for 35 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Barkley has been a consistent performer for owners over the first three games of the season and should continue to be a No. 1 running back in all leagues.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 10:38am ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) suffered a bruised knee in the first quarter of the Week 3 game against the Houston Texans, but will return to the contest.

    Huddle Up: Barkley started fast with 30 rushing yards and a TD in the opening quarter, and his fantasy owners will breathe a sigh of relief when he returns.

  • Posted: 9/17/2018 5:39pm ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley recorded a franchise record with 14 receptions (for 80 yards) in the Week 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys. The previous mark was 13, set by RB Tiki Barber on Jan. 2, 2000, also against the Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: The offensive line was giving Eli Manning no time to throw the ball, so the veteran was dumping it off to the rookie running back early and often. The receptions just piled up, much to the delight of fantasy owners in PPR leagues especially. The poor offensive line play meant limited rushing numbers for Barkley, but he more than made up for it through the air.

  • Posted: 9/17/2018 12:39am ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley carried 11 times for only 28 yards but caught 14 of his 16 targets for 80 yards in Week 2 against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: As much as owners will take his fantasy production from this contest, Barkley was so much better than his final line indicated, making at least one tackler miss just about every time he touched the ball. However, the Giants' offensive line was getting beat so often that the rookie ended up seeing seven more targets than any of his teammates. Barkley is going to be a threat for 100 total yards every week, including in Week 3 versus the Houston Texans.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 2:52pm ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed for 106 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1. He also caught two passes for 22 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Barkley was being drafted as a No. 1 running back entering the season and showed that he will be able to handle that role well for owners. He will be a weekly starting option in all leagues and could be more involved in the passing game moving forward.

  • Posted: 9/3/2018 10:07am ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (hamstring) told the team's website he is 'definitely ready for a full workload' in Week 1 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Barkley did not play most of the preseason because of a hamstring injury, and the Giants were smart to let him heal up. He has been participating in practice for a couple weeks without incident. His Week 1 matchup is brutal to be sure, but Barkley is going to be a threat for 100 total yards every week because he is such a gifted receiver in addition to being a highly elusive runner. He should be a solid fantasy RB1 all season long.

  • Posted: 8/26/2018 4:55pm ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (hamstring) participated in team drills during practice Sunday, Aug. 26.

    Huddle Up: Barkley appears to be on track for the start of the regular season as long as he does not suffer a setback. He is expected to be a big factor on offense during his rookie season and should be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/24/2018 7:57pm ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (hamstring) said his injured hamstring is feeling 'good,' and he expects to be ready to face the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Barkley should see all the touches he can handle this year, but hamstring injuries can linger. He still deserves to be selected as a RB1, but don't treat him like a top-five option at the position just yet.

  • Posted: 8/22/2018 8:51am ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (hamstring) remains out of practice Wednesday, Aug. 22. He caught some stationary passes and continues his rehab work on the side.

    Huddle Up: Barkley should be ready for the season, and he remains an upper-middle RB1 target.

  • Posted: 8/20/2018 8:44am ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (hamstring) remained out of practice Monday, Aug. 20, as he recovers from a hamstring injury. He did take part in team warmups and was spending practice participating in individual drills on the side.

    Huddle Up: Barkley's start in the Giants' preseason opener may prove to be the extent of his game action in August. But even if that proves to be the case, he's a locked-in RB1 in any and all upcoming fantasy drafts.

  • Posted: 8/19/2018 1:09pm ET

    New York Giants WR Saquon Barkley (hamstring) is not participating in practice Sunday, Aug. 19.

  • Posted: 8/17/2018 2:44pm ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (hamstring) has been ruled out of the second preseason game Friday, Aug. 17.

  • Posted: 8/16/2018 7:25am ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (hamstring) is out of practice again Thursday, Aug. 16.

    Huddle Up: Barkley remains an RB1, and he has upside to slot very highly.

  • Posted: 8/15/2018 11:34pm ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Aug. 15, and is not expected to play in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 17. The injury is not considered serious, and Barkley is day to day.

    Huddle Up: Barkley tweaked his hammy Monday, and the team is obviously not going to push in any way, shape or form during the preseason. His RB1 outlook for 2018 remains unchanged.

  • Posted: 8/14/2018 8:02am ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (hamstring) is working with a resistance band on the sidelines at practice Tuesday, Aug. 14.

    Huddle Up: Barkley is a RB1 with a lot of pizzazz this season. Be careful not to overdraft him ahead of sure things, but he looks the part.

  • Posted: 8/13/2018 2:27pm ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (hamstring) suffered a mild hamstring strain during practice Monday, Aug. 13.

    Huddle Up: Don't expect to see much of Barkley this preseason until his hamstring clears up. Assuming no setbacks find him, Barkley remains a mid-range RB1 candidate.

  • Posted: 8/13/2018 10:14am ET

    Updating a previous report, New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (leg) appeared to be dealing with a left leg injury during practice Monday, Aug. 13, but head coach Pat Shurmur said he thinks Barkley will be fine.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation over the next few days to see if Barkley is dealing with any significant injury. He is expected to be a focal point on offense for the Giants and should receive plenty of touches. He probably will be a No. 1 running back in all leagues.

  • Posted: 8/13/2018 8:58am ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (leg) left practice Monday, Aug. 13, with his left leg wrapped.

    Huddle Up: This is a situation to watch closely. Barkley has RB1 written all over him and did nothing to discount that in his first preseason game.

  • Posted: 8/9/2018 6:15pm ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley rushed four times for 43 yards in the team's first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 9, against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Most of Barkley's yardage came on an impressive 39-yard run, in which he flashed some of the tools that make him such an appealing early selection in fantasy drafts. There's no question he has RB1 potential this year, even as a rookie, and Barkley appears to be worth the investment.

  • Posted: 8/6/2018 9:45am ET

    New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley said he plans to play in the first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 9.

    Huddle Up: Barkley likely will not receive a lot of snaps in the first preseason game but should be more involved in the second and third preseason games. He is expected to be a focal point in the Giants offense this season and should be considered a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 7/22/2018 1:34pm ET

    Huddle Up: Barkley is set to receive a massive workload right away and well worth a selection in the middle of the first round of most fantasy drafts. He will hold even more value in PPR leagues given his advanced skills in the passing game.

  • Posted: 4/26/2018 5:22pm ET

  • Posted: 4/4/2018 5:16am ET

    Penn State RB Saquon Barkley will visit the New York Giants Sunday, April 8.

  • Posted: 4/2/2018 7:44am ET

  • Posted: 3/20/2018 5:30am ET

    Penn State RB Saquon Barkley will do running back skill drills at his Pro Day Tuesday, March 20, but he won't bench press or run the 40-yard dash.

    Huddle Up: Barring something unexpected, Barkley should be a top-five pick in the 2018 NFL draft. He's the most exciting running back prospect since Reggie Bush, and wherever he lands, he should see a prominent role in the offense. Look for him to be a late-RB1 target or an early RB2.

  • Posted: 2/28/2018 9:39am ET

    Penn State RB Saquon Barkley measured 6-foot, 233 pounds Wednesday, Feb. 28, at the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine.

  • Posted: 1/1/2018 2:48pm ET

    Penn State RB Saquon Barkley may be the early target for the Indianapolis Colts with their No. 3 overall draft pick. Owner Jim Irsay hinted that pairing QB Andrew Luck with a solid running back would make Indianapolis a 'special place to be and a special place to play.'

    Huddle Up: The Colts have many needs, and running back is one of them with Frank Gore turning 35 years old next summer. They drafted Marlon Mack last year and he has shown glimpses of good upside, but Barkley is an instant game-changer and has franchise running back written all over him. Time will tell if Irsay is blowing smoke or if the Colts really do want Barkley.

  • Posted: 12/31/2017 7:05pm ET

    Penn State RB Saquon Barkley announced Sunday, Dec. 31, that he plans to declare for the 2018 NFL Draft.
