Saquon Barkley limited by Rams in Week 17 loss

Saquon Barkley rushed for just 39 yards on 12 carries and caught 3 of 6 targets for 19 yards in Sunday's 26-25 loss to the Rams.

Fantasy Impact

After rushing for 80 yards and a touchdown in Week 16, Barkley had his rushing yardage cut in half and failed to score in Sunday's loss to the Rams. Barkley has had a decent season, as he's averaged 70.4 rushing yards per game while scoring eight total touchdowns across 13 games to this point. Still, it's been a fairly lackluster output for his fantasy managers given Barkley's typical upside.
