RB - NYG - Questionable
Week 12 Outlook
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) is expected to play in Week 12.
Barkley is in line to play in a favorable matchup with the Eagles. While his ankle injury will likely linger for the duration of the year, Barkley's workload is expected to increase, barring a setback. Barkley has RB1 upside facing an Eagles defense that struggles to contain enemy backs.
Giants star RB Saquon Barkley has been listed as questionable for Week 12's game against the Eagles due to an ankle injury.
This is likely a formality. The Giants didn't seem hesitant to give Barkley a solid workload in his return in Week 11, and it's unlikely that will change. Fantasy managers can fire up Barkley as an RB2 with upside for Week 12 against an Eagles D/ST currently giving up the 10th-most points to opposing running backs.
Giants running back Saquon Barkley rushed six times for 25 yards and caught all six of his targets for 31 yards in Monday's loss to the Bucs.
Barkley's overall production and involvement in the office was disappointing for fantasy managers, but his six receptions did at least provide something for managers in PPR formats. Barkley should be more involved against an Eagles defense that struggles to stop the run next week.
New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley is active for Monday Night Football against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Saquon was able to log limited practices all week and is expected to see a sizable workload in Week 11. He may not see a full complement of snaps but should be the lead back in a Giants committee. With that said, if he starts hot and the Giants can remain competitive, he could see a lot of run. Conversely, if the game gets out of hand, Saquon may very well be pulled. Barkley has a tough matchup in his first game back in action but gets a boost with Vita Vea inactive for Monday night.
Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports Giants RB Saquon Barkley (ankle) is expected to play in Monday's Week 11 game against the Bucs.
Barkley was listed as questionable coming into the weekend, so this is good news for fantasy managers who were banking on starting him. This will be his first game back in six weeks. Barkley's talent keeps him in the weekly RB1 conversation, but Tampa Bay's stout run defense isn't an ideal matchup.
