Phenomenally versatile game-breaker (21 combined runs/receptions of 20+ yards most at RB), but team context could hurt him a bit (e.g. loss of OBJ, QB issues)Has back-to-back top 2 finishes in FAN PTS at WR - Has most receptions (528) by a player through the first six seasons in NFL - in layman's terms, he's an aerial acrobat with hands like an octopus
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
There is zero to dislike about Barkley as a player, as he was second in the league last year with 1,307 rushing yards and caught 91 passes, second in running backs to only Christian McCaffrey. But his production waned somewhat without Odell Beckham Jr., and with all the issues with the Giants' wide receivers, defenses will surely be focused on not letting Barkley beat them. But those are all minimal concerns when you consider Barkley's talent and likely usage. He's one of the top few picks in your draft, if not the first selection. 
Rich Piazza
Fantasy Shed
The separation between Barkley and McCaffrey for the top spot has to do with the supporting cast. There is nobody on the Giants roster that should be a threat to Barkley for goal-line opportunities. CMC is going to lose some touches in that area to Cam, and possibly Jordan Scarlett and others. 
Greg Smith
TwoQBs
My overall rankings are for 2QB/Superflex. 
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
1307/11 rushing and 91/721/4 receiving AS A ROOKIE! He is going to get the ball 20+ times a game, easily. He was also ridiculously consistent. Had 2 games under 15.5 half ppr points all of last season which is absurd.Nuk is Nuk, WR1.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Barkley had ONE game all of last season with less than 50 rushing yards, less than 5 catches, and no TDs. He's one big run away from being the overall RB1 every week. 
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
Barkley is an absolute freak. He has a 96th percentile bench press, a 97th percentile burst score, a 99th percentile height adjusted speed score, a 99th percentile SPARQ-x score, and is one of the best receiving backs in the league. He can take any play to the house, and can save even his poor fantasy performances with his receiving upside. He ran for over 1,300 yards and 15 total TD's last season, averaging 5.0 YPC on one of the worst offenses in football. Oh, and he also caught 91 balls. There are two big concerns with Barkley The first is that his YPC is likely to regress this season. He had 16 carries for 641 yards on runs of 20+ yards. While this is one of his strengths, you can't expect him to rush for that many yards on long runs each season. The second concern is his offense. This is going to be one of the worst offenses in the league, and it's very difficult for a RB to pay off top overall value when the offense around them is so bad. I'm ok drafting Barkley...but he usually goes first overall, which means I'll have 0% of him.I always try to target running backs in the first round of drafts, but Hopkins is one of the few wide receivers I will make an exception for. He's been over 1,200 yards in 4 of the past 5 seasons, and has AVERAGED 170 targets over the last 4. Since 2014 he's been the WR 14/4/29/1/2 in half PPR scoring. He's an absolute target monster, and I have no problem if you want to take him as the top WR off the board. His TD upside is also massive, as he lead all players with 15 targets inside the 10 yard line last season.
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 relatively safe top-three selection in every format, but the lack of scoring from this offense can really hold him back.The best hands in football. Hopkins continually makes highlight-worthy grabs on passes that 95 percent of the league couldn't make on their best day. He'll continually see the oppositions best cornerback, but having Will Fuller back will help draw double-coverage away from him. He's now finished as a top-six fantasy receiver in three of the last four seasons, including his first No. 1 finish in 2018
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Barkley is the consensus 1.1 pick for a reason; he is the most talented running back to enter the league since Adrian Peterson and perhaps even Barry Sanders. With that said, he plays behind one of the league's worst offensive lines and teams may stack the box more often with Beckham now in Cleveland. Still yet, Saquon dominated last year despite the rest of the offense struggling, plus he is game script proof.As of now, Hopkins is the consensus #1 receiver off the board. You certainly can't argue with his talent nor his recent production but there is reason to be concerned that he is currently on the PUP. Perhaps more concerning is the fact that both Will Fuller and Keke Coutee will both be healthy so his league-high target share may take a hit. He is still elite, but shouldn't exactly be a slam dunk at pick 6.
Kyle Yates
The Fantasy Footballers
Saquon's a transcendent talent at the running back position. He's in an incredible position this season to exceed 2,000 total yards again and that New York Giants offense is going to run through him. He should be the 1.01 in every draft this season.A pure target monster, Hopkins is one of the safest picks in fantasy football for 2019. If Hopkins and Deshaun Watson can both stay healthy for all 16 games, there's no reason to doubt Hopkins' ability to be a Top 5 WR when it's all said and done.
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.Hopkins had 115 receptions for 1,572 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2018 and he should be among the most dangerous receivers in the NFL in 2019 with 3rd year QB Deshaun Watson throwing him the ball.
