What You Need to Know:
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:
A healthy Saquon Barkley sits on the top shelf of RBs in the NFL (and fantasy). Just how close to full health he is, though, and how much early-season use he’ll get will bear watching as we move through summer. At this point, it seems wise to expect lighter usage at least early in the season.
That adds risk to Barkley as an early 1st-round pick. It helps his case, though, that just about any early RB carries some risk. And patience with Barkley could unlock his extreme upside.
