Week 13 Rankings

Saquon Barkley Note

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.

Kenny Golladay Note

After the Giants moved on from Offensive Coordinator Jason Garrett, there was some optimism for Golladay from a fantasy perspective. He simply was not being utilized the correct way in this offense in New York and had been the definition of underwhelming over the course of his first season in town. In his first game sans Garrett, Golladay saw a 24% target share and reeled in three catches for 50 yards, which was his fourth-highest total of the season. While this certainly is still not what fantasy managers were expecting when they drafted Golladay this off-season, it seemed to be a step in the right direction for the veteran wideout. Unfortunately, it looks like we're going to have to remain cautious with Golladay from a fantasy perspective this week though with the downgrade at QB from Jones to Glennon. We've seen what Glennon can do in the NFL and it's nothing spectacular. He might lean on Golladay heavily in this game, but that's far from a guarantee. When you take into account what the quality of those targets may be, plus the tougher matchup now against Miami's secondary, it's probably best to view Golladay as nothing more than a low-end FLEX option.

Evan Engram Note

With the move away from Jason Garrett heading into Week 12, there was some optimism that Engram would finally be utilized properly in this offense and that we could see a bit of a resurgence from him. Unfortunately, that didn't exactly happen. While Engram saw six targets - he now has 11 over the course of his last two games - he finished with just three receptions for 37 yards and ended the week as the TE22. There are better investments you can make at the TE position in fantasy this year and Engram can be dropped to your league's waiver wire if he hasn't been already.
