New York Giants
Saquon Barkley, Dion Lewis, Wayne Gallman
After posting one of the most impressive rookie seasons in recent memory, Barkley’s sophomore season was a bit of a letdown. Maybe it was the high ankle sprain that robbed him of three games. Maybe it was the departure of star receiver Odell Beckham, Jr., or the transition to a rookie quarterback which put all of the defensive focus on him.
Either way, it is undeniable that Barkley did experience a drop off from 2018 to 2019. With that being said, however, Saquon absolutely belongs in the discussion of best running backs in all of football.
Barkley is a three-down back with the capability of taking every play to the house at any moment. Even in a “down” year, he still averaged 4.6 yards per attempt and 8.4 yards per reception.
New York was wise to add some veteran depth behind him, signing Dion Lewis away from the Titans. Lewis is definitely more of a pass-catching threat than a dynamic runner so don’t be shocked if you see the Giants use both guys on the field simultaneously.
