Phenomenally versatile game-breaker (21 combined runs/receptions of 20+ yards most at RB), but team context could hurt him (loss of OBJ, potential for Daniel Jones to be allowed to cut his teeth with a handful of starts, etc) 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
During his rookie season, while playing behind a shoddy offensive line and in a low-scoring offense, Barkley overcame all odds and delivered a fantasy MVP-worthy performance. He finished as an RB1 in 75 percent of his games, while hitting at least RB2 numbers in 93.8 percent of his games. Some are excited about his target possibilities with Odell Beckham Jr. gone, but it's likely going to bring more attention to him and the run-game. Still, Barkley showed last year that he's able to overcome a lot, making him a safe top-three selection in every format.McCaffrey blew up in 2018 and it's got everyone reaching for him as a top-three selection in 2019. It's fair and you shouldn't shy away from the three-down back, but you should know that the Panthers have openly talked about scaling back his workload. He's still likely to finish as a top-five option at the position even if he loses 4-6 touches per game, as he's gamescript-proof and it's not as if Cam Newton is rushing for as many touchdowns as he used to.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Barkley was 2nd in fantasy points by running backs in his rookie season and he should continue to his ascent towards becoming the best running back in the NFL.McCaffrey was the 3rd ranked running back in fantasy football last year and he is one of the best duel-threat running backs in the NFL.
