Huddle Up: The criticism certainly didn't come from Barkley's fantasy owners as the rookie dazzled to the tune of 2,028 scrimmage yards and 15 touchdowns last season. And even if the Giants somehow bypass on drafting a QB again this spring, Barkley is the leading candidate to be the first pick in fantasy drafts this summer.
Posted: 2/2/2019 6:44pm ET
Huddle Up: Barkley's 2,028 scrimmage yards were the most in the NFL this year and the third most by a rookie back. He also set a record for a rookie running back by catching 91 passes and was one of two players to finish the year with 1,000-plus rushing yards and 700-plus receiving yards. He's in the mix to be the No. 1 overall pick in 2019.

Huddle Up: Barkley's fantasy owners certainly should've voted as he finished tops among RBs in PPR scoring and finished second to Todd Gurley in standard leagues. And after also finishing second with 352 total touches, he'll be a legit No. 1-overall pick candidate in re-draft leagues this summer.

Huddle Up: Barkley finished his rookie year with 2,028 yards from scrimmage, 15 touchdowns and 91 receptions, so his production didn't exactly suffer because of some missed opportunities. He will likely be a top-five pick in all fantasy formats in 2019.
Posted: 1/3/2019 8:21pm ET
Huddle Up: Barkley proved to be the total package as a rookie, leading the league in total yards while scoring 15 times and catching 91 passes. Between his heavy workload, versatility and explosiveness, he'll be in the mix to the No. 1 overall pick in fantasy drafts in 2019.

Huddle Up: Barkley finished his rookie campaign with 1,307 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns while adding 91 receptions for 721 receiving yards and four more scores. He was everything as advertised in his first season and he'll be a first-round fantasy pick in a majority of leagues in 2019.

Huddle Up: Barkley has been a big part of the Giants offense this season and should continue to be a focal point in the running and passing game next season. He should be considered a top-five pick in all drafts next season.

Huddle Up: Barkley is one of the few elite RB1s active and seemingly set for a full workload in Week 17, and with the opposing Dallas Cowboys resting up for the wild-card round of the playoffs, Barkley might be THE RB1 start of the week.
Posted: 12/23/2018 5:13pm ET
Huddle Up: Barkley has been held in check by his standards in each of the last two games. On paper, he has another tough matchup with Dallas in the finale, but the Cowboys may rest some starters after clinching the NFC East. Start Barkley as you normally would.
Posted: 12/16/2018 2:28pm ET
Huddle Up: Barkley had his streak of consecutive 100-yard games snapped this week and posted one of his worst rushing totals of the season. He should be able to bounce back next week and can be a No. 1 running back in all leagues.
Posted: 12/9/2018 5:10pm ET
Huddle Up: Barkley could have piled up even bigger numbers had Washington been able to keep the score respectable, but regardless of how the games play out, Barkley usually finds a way to put up plenty of points for fantasy owners.
Posted: 12/3/2018 11:10am ET
Huddle Up: Barkley left the game at one point after an uncomfortable landing on the shoulder, but he was able to return and finish out the game. While it seems very likely he will miss some practice time this week, he appears to be in good shape to produce yet another game with at least 100 total yards in Week 14 versus the Washington Redskins.
Posted: 12/2/2018 7:24pm ET
Huddle Up: Barkley didn't find the end zone, but he piled up plenty of yards. He actually seems to be getting stronger as the year goes on, reeling off three straight 100-yard rushing efforts heading into Week 14.
Posted: 11/29/2018 7:35am ET
Huddle Up: Barkley hasn't fumbled since his sophomore year at Penn State spanning 32 games, and he's a clear-cut RB1 in fantasy. There is some worry that he'll be shut down early with the team out of contention, but that might not be until after the fantasy playoffs.
Posted: 11/25/2018 5:08pm ET
Huddle Up: Barkley topped 100 rushing yards for the second game in a row and is now up to 12 total touchdowns. The versatile rookie remains on pace for more than 2,000 total yards, and you can count on him producing no matter how bad the Giants are as a team.
Posted: 11/18/2018 5:34pm ET
Huddle Up: It was Barkley's first big rushing performance in a several weeks, but his work in the passing game has made him a productive back regardless. Another big performance could be on tap in Week 12 against a Philadelphia Eagles defense that he torched for 229 total yards and 22 touches earlier this year.
Posted: 11/12/2018 8:31pm ET
Huddle Up: Barkley has been held under 100 yards in each of the last three games, but his involvement in the passing game helps his fantasy value. He should have a favorable matchup next week and can be considered a No. 1 fantasy running back.
Posted: 10/28/2018 3:05pm ET
Huddle Up: Barkley has done most of his damage in the passing game over the last several weeks and has been held to under 50 rushing yards in four of the last five games. He should continue to be considered a No. 1 running back for the rest of the season despite the team's poor record.
Posted: 10/22/2018 8:22pm ET
Huddle Up: The best thing that happened was the Giants being behind for a good chunk of the game, as they passed frequently. That meant a ton of short routes and catches for Barkley. He has been everything as advertised despite a terrible offensive line. The Redskins pay a visit to MetLife Stadium in Week 8 to face the G-Men.
Posted: 10/18/2018 7:29pm ET
Huddle Up: Barkley has been one of the few bright spot for the 1-5 Giants, and he is on pace for more than 2,000 total yards and more than 100 catches. As crazy as it sounds, his numbers could actually improve if the passing attack can ever find a rhythm.
Posted: 10/11/2018 8:43pm ET
Huddle Up: Barkley was the lone bright spot in an otherwise ugly performance for New York's offense. The Giants look to be headed for one of the top picks in next year's draft, but Barkley should still produce RB1 numbers in the meantime.
Posted: 10/7/2018 5:21pm ET
Huddle Up: Barkley immediately went to the sideline for treatment from a trainer, but he was up and celebrating with his teammates shortly thereafter his score. If he pops up on the injury report in the upcoming week, you'll know why, but he should be OK for Thursday's game against the Eagles in Week 6.
Posted: 9/30/2018 8:58pm ET
Huddle Up: His rushing numbers haven't been spectacular, but his versatility has allowed him to reach 100 total yards in all four games this year. His role as a workhorse back makes him a weekly RB1 candidate.
Posted: 9/23/2018 2:18pm ET
Huddle Up: Barkley has been a consistent performer for owners over the first three games of the season and should continue to be a No. 1 running back in all leagues.
Posted: 9/23/2018 10:38am ET
Huddle Up: Barkley started fast with 30 rushing yards and a TD in the opening quarter, and his fantasy owners will breathe a sigh of relief when he returns.
Posted: 9/17/2018 5:39pm ET
Huddle Up: The offensive line was giving Eli Manning no time to throw the ball, so the veteran was dumping it off to the rookie running back early and often. The receptions just piled up, much to the delight of fantasy owners in PPR leagues especially. The poor offensive line play meant limited rushing numbers for Barkley, but he more than made up for it through the air.
Posted: 9/17/2018 12:39am ET
Huddle Up: As much as owners will take his fantasy production from this contest, Barkley was so much better than his final line indicated, making at least one tackler miss just about every time he touched the ball. However, the Giants' offensive line was getting beat so often that the rookie ended up seeing seven more targets than any of his teammates. Barkley is going to be a threat for 100 total yards every week, including in Week 3 versus the Houston Texans.
Posted: 9/9/2018 2:52pm ET
Huddle Up: Barkley was being drafted as a No. 1 running back entering the season and showed that he will be able to handle that role well for owners. He will be a weekly starting option in all leagues and could be more involved in the passing game moving forward.
Posted: 9/3/2018 10:07am ET
Huddle Up: Barkley did not play most of the preseason because of a hamstring injury, and the Giants were smart to let him heal up. He has been participating in practice for a couple weeks without incident. His Week 1 matchup is brutal to be sure, but Barkley is going to be a threat for 100 total yards every week because he is such a gifted receiver in addition to being a highly elusive runner. He should be a solid fantasy RB1 all season long.
Posted: 8/26/2018 4:55pm ET
Huddle Up: Barkley appears to be on track for the start of the regular season as long as he does not suffer a setback. He is expected to be a big factor on offense during his rookie season and should be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Posted: 8/24/2018 7:57pm ET
Huddle Up: Barkley should see all the touches he can handle this year, but hamstring injuries can linger. He still deserves to be selected as a RB1, but don't treat him like a top-five option at the position just yet.
Posted: 8/22/2018 8:51am ET
Huddle Up: Barkley should be ready for the season, and he remains an upper-middle RB1 target.
Posted: 8/20/2018 8:44am ET
Huddle Up: Barkley's start in the Giants' preseason opener may prove to be the extent of his game action in August. But even if that proves to be the case, he's a locked-in RB1 in any and all upcoming fantasy drafts.
Posted: 8/19/2018 1:09pm ET
Huddle Up: Barkley may not play in another preseason game but should be ready for Week 1. Barkley should be a focal point in the Giants offense this season and likely will be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Posted: 8/17/2018 2:44pm ET
Huddle Up: Barkley likely will not see much playing time for the rest of the preseason but should be ready for Week 1. He likely will receive a lot of touches this season and will be a No. 1 fantasy running back in all leagues.
Posted: 8/16/2018 7:25am ET
Huddle Up: Barkley remains an RB1, and he has upside to slot very highly.
Posted: 8/15/2018 11:34pm ET
Huddle Up: Barkley tweaked his hammy Monday, and the team is obviously not going to push in any way, shape or form during the preseason. His RB1 outlook for 2018 remains unchanged.
Posted: 8/14/2018 8:02am ET
Huddle Up: Barkley is a RB1 with a lot of pizzazz this season. Be careful not to overdraft him ahead of sure things, but he looks the part.
Posted: 8/13/2018 2:27pm ET
Huddle Up: Don't expect to see much of Barkley this preseason until his hamstring clears up. Assuming no setbacks find him, Barkley remains a mid-range RB1 candidate.
Posted: 8/13/2018 10:14am ET
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation over the next few days to see if Barkley is dealing with any significant injury. He is expected to be a focal point on offense for the Giants and should receive plenty of touches. He probably will be a No. 1 running back in all leagues.
Posted: 8/13/2018 8:58am ET
Huddle Up: This is a situation to watch closely. Barkley has RB1 written all over him and did nothing to discount that in his first preseason game.
Posted: 8/9/2018 6:15pm ET
Huddle Up: Most of Barkley's yardage came on an impressive 39-yard run, in which he flashed some of the tools that make him such an appealing early selection in fantasy drafts. There's no question he has RB1 potential this year, even as a rookie, and Barkley appears to be worth the investment.
Posted: 8/6/2018 9:45am ET
Huddle Up: Barkley likely will not receive a lot of snaps in the first preseason game but should be more involved in the second and third preseason games. He is expected to be a focal point in the Giants offense this season and should be considered a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Posted: 7/22/2018 1:34pm ET
Huddle Up: Barkley is set to receive a massive workload right away and well worth a selection in the middle of the first round of most fantasy drafts. He will hold even more value in PPR leagues given his advanced skills in the passing game.
