Did you know that Saquon led the entire NFL last week at the RB position in terms of snap share? He played 87% of the snaps for the Giants, which indicates that he is fully healthy and ready to operate at 100% after his injury. With that being the case, fantasy managers have to be pressing the panic button on Barkley - if they weren't already - based on his production. Saquon had just 18 total opportunities this past week and he averaged just 3.1 Yards Per Attempt, zero Forced Missed Tackles, and just 3.25 Yards Per Reception. Barkley has finished outside the top-20 RBs in each of his past two games and the situation doesn't seem to be changing around him anytime soon. According to Football Outsiders, the New York Giants are second-to-last in Adjusted Line Yards and they've been trying to make things work this entire season with a makeshift offensive line, which obviously hasn't gone well. We went into the year hopeful that Saquon could return to high-end RB1 status and now fantasy managers are simply hoping that he can be a viable mid-range RB2. Against the Dolphins defense that's allowing just 14.7 fantasy points per game to opposing RBs, plus the downgrade at QB this week, we shouldn't be expecting top-5 production from the talented RB.
