Saquon Barkley can still have a big game

Saquon Barkley Headshot

The Giants' offense has struggled lately but managed to support a big game for RB Saquon Barkley in Sunday's win over the Commanders. Barkley rushed 14 times for 83 yards (5.9) per rush and added a 4-57-2 receiving line on 5 targets. That tied him for the team high in targets and marked Barkley's most receptions in a game since Week 6. The yardage was a season high. Playing a lackluster Washington defense certainly helped. The Giants get a neutral matchup with New England in Week 12 before a Week 13 bye. After that comes a positive matchup for RB scoring with Green Bay, but three straight negative matchups to finish the season. That makes Barkley a potential sell if your trade deadline hasn't passed yet. Barkley's receiving ability helps him in negative matchups, though, so he can certainly remain useful in fantasy. Barkley has also topped 5.0 yards per carry in three straight contests.
