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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Posted: 4/26/2018 5:22pm ET
Huddle Up: Barkley likely will be the team's starting running back this season and should be involved on the running and passing game. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Posted: 4/4/2018 5:16am ET
Huddle Up: Barkley figures to be in the RB1 mix in fantasy regardless of where he lands. He's one of the best running back prospects to come out in a while.
Posted: 4/2/2018 7:44am ET
Huddle Up: Barkley figures to be on the RB1 radar regardless of where he's drafted.
Posted: 3/20/2018 5:30am ET
Huddle Up: Barring something unexpected, Barkley should be a top-five pick in the 2018 NFL draft. He's the most exciting running back prospect since Reggie Bush, and wherever he lands, he should see a prominent role in the offense. Look for him to be a late-RB1 target or an early RB2.
Posted: 2/28/2018 9:39am ET
Huddle Up: Barkley is a sure-fire first-rounder in the draft and, in the right situation, could be a strong RB2 in fantasy.
Posted: 1/1/2018 2:48pm ET
Huddle Up: The Colts have many needs, and running back is one of them with Frank Gore turning 35 years old next summer. They drafted Marlon Mack last year and he has shown glimpses of good upside, but Barkley is an instant game-changer and has franchise running back written all over him. Time will tell if Irsay is blowing smoke or if the Colts really do want Barkley.
Posted: 12/31/2017 7:05pm ET
Huddle Up: The do-it-all back is the early favorite to be the top pick in rookie drafts, and he has the skills to put up RB1 numbers immediately in the right situation.
