Shark Bites

Giants RB Devontae Booker is a surprise healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Falcons. Booker had been serving as New York's #2 RB. That job will now fall to rookie Gary Brightwell. Booker's absence can only be good news for RB Saquon Barkley's workload.

Recent Shark Bites

Giants RB Devontae Booker suffered a hip injury in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Raiders and is officially questionable to return. Stay tuned for an update.

Giants RB Corey Clement has outplayed RB Devontae Booker in camp so far, according to insider Zack Rosenblatt. "Booker is still the top backup," Rosenblatt concedes. "But he’s not necessarily performing like it." The Giants gave Booker a 2-year, $5.5 million deal in free agency vs. Clement's 1-year deal worth a little less than a million. So the team was likely banking on Booker winning the backup job behind RB Saquon Barkley. But that contract isn't big enough to guarantee him anything. We'll continue to monitor this situation, but there's no strong handcuff to Barkley right now.

RB Devontae Booker has inked a 2-year, $6 million deal with the Giants, per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Booker is coming off a solid season in Vegas that saw him average 4.5 yards per carry and haul in 17 of 21 targets. He's a reliable pass-catcher but is stretched as anything more than a change-of-pace back. That's exactly what he'll be in New York as long as Saquon Barkley makes a successful return from last year's torn ACL.

The Raiders signed RB Devontae Booker. The former Bronco has mustered just 3.8 yards per carry over 4 NFL seasons but has averaged 8.3 yards per catch on 105 grabs. He'll compete for a pass-catching role in Las Vegas. Booker is far from a lock to make the final roster, but his addition is another sign that the Raiders aren't ready to hand RB Josh Jacobs a 3-down, workhorse role. The team has also re-signed RB Jalen Richard and drafted RB Lynn Bowden this offseason.

The Broncos' initial -- "unofficial" -- depth chart lists RB Devontae Booker as the starter, with rookie Royce Freeman 2nd, followed by De'Angelo Henderson, Dave Williams and Phillip Lindsay. That's not a surprising development but at least a reminder that Freeman hasn't taken over the gig yet. Playing time will be interesting to watch as Denver gets into preseason action. We're still betting Freeman will wind up leading the team in carries, but there's certainly value potential on Booker at his RB49 ADP -- as well as the chance he remains the Broncos' lead back.
