RB - NYG
Week 6 Outlook
With Saquon Barkley likely to miss the next couple of weeks with a left ankle sprain, Booker is going to assume the lead-back role in this offense. While Booker should see a minimum of 12 touches in this game, we shouldn't exactly be expecting the same level of production as Barkley. Booker has stepped in on occasion as the lead back throughout his time in the NFL and he's been able to be a fine fantasy asset in those performances, but the upside simply isn't there. In this offense that may not even have its starting QB on Sunday, we shouldn't be expecting much from Booker from a fantasy perspective. He can be viewed as a low-end RB2 simply based on volume.
The Rams are 16th against fantasy backs this year, Booker is a low-end RB2 to flex option at home filling in for the injured Saquon Barkley.
Saquon Barkley rolled his ankle Sunday and the golf ball-sized swelling shown on the sidelines looked bad immediately. He's expected to miss at least one game and potentially more, making Booker a priority add heading into Week 6.
Saquon Barkley exited Week 5 with a nasty looking ankle injury. Per Ian Rapoport, Barkley will likely miss week 6 and is considered week to week with a low-ankle sprain. This means that Booker will be a priority waiver wire add in some fashion. By this point in his career we know the 29-year-old isn't a special talent, but volume remains king in fantasy land. In Barkley's absence on Sunday, Booker scored twice while rushing for 42 yards on 16 carries and catching 3-of-4 targets for 16 yards. He'll be a usage-based, low-end RB2 for any games that Barkley misses.
