Giants RB Saquon Barkley (neck) is active for today’s game vs. the Eagles. He was listed as questionable and reportedly a game-time decision, but we haven’t heard anything about his workload being limited today. Barkley certainly carries elevated risk in Week 14 fantasy lineups, but you’d need to be loaded at RB to bench him. See where Barkley sits in the Week 14 RB Rankings.

Giants HC Brian Daboll told NFL Network's Mike Garofolo that RB Saquon Barkley (neck) will play against the Eagles today. The neck issue adds risk to Barkley's Week 14 fantasy profile, but we've heard nothing to suggest that it'll impact his workload today.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that RB Saquon Barkley (neck) is "legit 50/50" to play vs. the Eagles today. The Giants "want to see how he feels Sunday in pre-game warmups before deciding whether he will play." We'll get New York's inactives around 11:30 am ET. If Barkley sits, the Giants will be down to RBs Matt Breida and Gary Brightwell.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that Giants RB Saquon Barkley is "legitimately 50-50" to be active for Sunday's game against the Eagles. Officially questionable, Barkley was limited in practice Thursday and Friday and will carry some risk even if active. We'll certainly be tracking his status Sunday morning. RB-needy teams could add Matt Breida ahead of game time, though he wouldn't be a strong fantasy football option even if Barkley is inactive.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (neck) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Eagles. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and then limited again in Friday’s practice. HC Brian Daboll said Friday that Barkley’s neck is “a little sore” and said, “I hope so” when asked whether Barkley will play this weekend. ESPN’s Jordan Raanan, for what it’s worth, said that he’d be surprised if Barkley didn’t play. We’ll look for further updates on the situation and will get the Giants’ inactives around 11:30 am on Sunday. RB Matt Breida would be the best bet for carries in New York if Barkley doesn’t play.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley was added to the injury report and limited in Thursday's practice with a neck issue. We don't have any other details at this point. We'll see what Barkley does in Friday's practice and how he's listed on the final injury report for Sunday's game vs. the Eagles. Matt Breida would likely be New York's lead back if Barkley misses this one.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley carried 18 times for 63 yards and a TD in Sunday's tie with the Commanders. It was a predictably sluggish performance (3.5 per rush) against 1 of the league's toughest run defenses. Barkley's carry total beat each of his previous 2 games, at least. He also caught 5 passes (for 18 yards), his most since Week 1. Week 14 brings the season's 1st matchup with the Eagles.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley totaled just 52 yards in Thursday's loss to the Cowboys. He managed 39 yards on 11 carries (3.5 per rush) and tallied merely 13 yards on 4 receptions Barkley's 6 targets tied 2 others for the team lead. Gary Brightwell chimed in with 5-31 rushing and 2 catches (on 2 targets) for 18 yards. RB Matt Breida went 2-6 rushing and caught his lone target for 9 yards.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley managed just 22 yards on his 15 carries in Sunday's loss to the Lions. He added only 13 more on 2 receptions among 5 targets. It was even more disappointing for such a performance to come against a Lions defense ranked 27th in Football Outsiders' rushing DVOA. The rest of Barkley's season, of course, means we need to dismiss this one and continue playing the fantasy stud. Week 12 holds a Dallas defense that allowed him 126 total yards in their Week 3 meeting.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley racked up 35 carries in Sunday's win over the Texans, more than doubling the team's pass attempts (17). He tallied 152 yards and a TD on the ground, adding 1 catch for 8 yards. It marked the 4th straight game of 20+ rushes for Barkley and his 2nd game this season with more than 30 attempts. Let's hope -- for the sake of his health -- that the Giants don't continue to work Barkley quite so hard. A Week 11 home date with a soft Lions defense should find him busy once again, though.

The Seahawks limited RB Saquon Barkley to just 62 total yards on 23 touches Sunday. He averaged a meager 2.7 yards across 20 carries and tallied a meager 9 yards on 3 receptions (5 targets). Barkley saved his fantasy day with a 1-yard TD plunge in the 2nd quarter. The Seattle defense has been terrific in 3 straight outings, against both the run and pass. Barkley and the Giants get a Week 9 bye.

Giants TE Daniel Bellinger will undergo surgery this week to repair a fractured eye socket and septum, according to the New York Post's Paul Schwartz. It's not believed to be a season-ending injury, per Schwartz, but expect Bellinger to miss multiple games. The rookie had emerged as a significant part of New York's passing game, drawing 16 targets over his last 4 healthy games. His absence will leave New York with TEs Chris Myarick and Tanner Hudson -- and free up a few more targets for RB Saquon Barkley and WR Wan'Dale Robinson.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley ran for 110 yards on 24 carries in Sunday's win over the Jaguars, adding 4 catches for 25 yards on 4 targets. It was the 3rd 100-yard game for Barkley, who gets a soft Seattle defense on the road in Week 8.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley ran for 83 yards and a TD on 22 carries in Sunday's win over the Ravens. He added 3 catches for 12 yards on 3 targets. Barkley could have scored a 2nd TD late in the 4th quarter but slid short of the goal line to allow his team to run out the clock with a 4-point lead.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (shoulder) was limited in practice all week but isn’t listed on the final injury report. He should be ready for his usual workhorse role vs. the Ravens on Sunday.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley said Thursday that his injured shoulder "feels pretty good" and that he doesn't expect to be limited in Sunday's game vs. the Packers. “I’ve just been rehabbing it, being smart, but I’m excited for us to get a chance to go against a really good football team," Barkley added. He remains a must-start in Week 6 fantasy lineups.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (shoulder) remained limited in Thursday's practice. He's fully expected to play vs. the Ravens this weekend, but we'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Giants RB Saquon Barkley (shoulder) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. He missed 1 series of last weekend's win over the Packers with this shoulder issue but was able to return. Barkley should be ready for his usual role vs. the Ravens on Sunday.
