Most fantasy points among RB week 13-16 (Half PPR), 22.9ppgUnderrated aspect of Henry's blistering 8-game stretch (203/1273/11 rushing): not only is it the 2nd-most rushing yards in an 8-game stretch in history, but it comes against teams a combined 24 games above .500. @AdamHarstad

Last season, we saw Barkley struggle due to an ankle injury. However, once he got fully healthy, we saw what he can do again in the fantasy playoffs. Barkley's arguably the best RB in the NFL and this offense flows through him. If you miss out on CMC, don't worry...you'll be just fine with Barkley.Derrick Henry was a fantasy football superstar last year and finished the season with 16 rushing touchdowns! While that's unlikely to repeat, he still belongs in the top-tier RB conversation and is a solid pick towards the back end of the first round in your draft.

New OC Garrett knows how to lean into a lead RB, be it DeMarco Murray, D. McFadden or Zeke Elliott - health permitting, should be a volume monster75+ rush yards in 18 of past 22 games (playoffs inc.) - led NFL in Yards Created (yards gain after 1st evaded tackle) and Yards After Contact/Attempt in 2019
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
After a spectacular rookie season made him a popular No. 1 pick in 2019 fantasy drafts, Saquon Barkley disappointed a lot of people in an injury-riddled season that saw him average four fewer half-PPR points a game (when he played). That's no reason to drop him below RB2 though, as even disappointing Barkley was still pretty darn good. With Joe Judge in town, the Giants have openly committed to improving the run and they've backed that up with the drafting of Andrew Thomas, Matt Peart and a guard I really like, Shane Lemieux. Things are looking very good for a Barkley revival and I'm all about him as the No. 2 overall pick in 2020.2019 was when it finally all came together for Derrick Henry, as he parlayed 303 carries into the rushing title and a RB3 finish in half-ppr. The reaction has been unusual, with a surprising amount of fantasy owners taking a big step back with players like Josh Jacobs, Nick Chubb, Austin Ekeler, Miles Sanders, Kenyan Drake and even Clyde Edwards-Helaire regularly going ahead of Henry for no good reason. Henry remains an absolute stud, especially in non-PPR, with a clear path to another 300 touches and maybe even more receptions. The injury concern appears to be overblown, as Henry has little injury history and all running backs with high volume are a breakdown risk. Ultimately, I'm hopping on the Henry express expecting another big season in 2020.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After an extremely impressive rookie season, Barkley came back down to earth a bit in 2019, though 4.6 yards per carry behind that Giants offensive line is nothing to scoff at. Playing through injury was a clear net-negative to his overall numbers, and something he hopefully learned from. The biggest difference was breakaway runs of 15-plus yards, as Barkley rattled off 20 of them in his rookie season, but just nine of them in his sophomore season. With all the weapons in this offense, you have to wonder just how many targets Barkley will get, but trust me, the Giants are building their offense around him and not anyone else. If Daniel Jones can take a step forward in year two, it'll help open lanes for Barkley. It also doesn't hurt that they dramatically improved the offensive line this offseason.Yes, Derrick Henry finished with 1,540 yards and 16 touchdowns last year en route to a No. 3 finish. Yes, he was dominant in the playoffs. We still can't forget that he was the No. 14 running back in points per game before Week 10 last year, behind David Johnson and Mark Ingram. Should we automatically assume Henry picks up where he left off in 2019? My issue with Henry is that he's not involved in the passing-game, which lowers his weekly floor. That alone will allow us to choose someone like Alvin Kamara over him. Henry is best-suited as a second-round pick rather than one in the first round.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Barkley missed 3 games in 2019, was limited in several others and played on a 4-12 team that was outscored by 110 points on the season. He still managed 1,441 yards from scrimmage and 8 touchdowns. A new coaching staff should only help and he should have elite RB1 value in 2020.Henry led the league in rushing yards and finished the season with 1,746 yards and 18 total touchdowns on the season. His historic postseason run led to a franchise tag and with QB Ryan Tannehill back, he should be a RB1 again in 2020.

Crossroads Fantasy Football
 3 drops on 23 targets. 2019 was his worst year of passpro according to PFF. Relying on TDs and elite production, strictly from the ground, needing a great oline, requires some big truss.
