  Giants | Saquon Barkley much less elusive in 2019    Wed Mar 25, 11:07 PM

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley managed to break only 16 tackles on 217 rushing attempts last season - once every 13.6 carries - after doing so 30 times on 261 attempts in 2018 - once every 8.7 attempts.

Footballguys view: Barkley wasn't healthy last year. We don't need advanced data to see that. Anyone could watch him play and know that he wasn't right compared to the player we saw when he was a rookie in 2018. We're expecting Barkley to have a bounce-back season in 2020.

Free-agent RB Dion Lewis (Titans) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the New York Giants Monday, March 23, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Lewis gets to work as a reserve running back behind Saquon Barkley. He's got the ability to work well as a change-of-pace option and pass-catcher out of the backfield. Fantasy GMs should keep Lewis on the waiver wire speed dial.

  Giants | Corey Coleman returning to NYG    Mon Mar 23, 03:01 PM

Free-agent WR Corey Coleman (Giants) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the New York Giants Monday, March 23, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Coleman suffered a torn ACL last July with the Giants and missed the entire 2019 season. He's staying with the team and Fantasy GMs need to know that he was working as a No.3 receiver at points during OTAs and minicamp last year. We'll see if Coleman can stay healthy and earn a spot on the 53-man roster.

Footballguys view: Joe Burrow and Chase Young are expected to be gone when the Giants are on the clock at #4. If the Lions or Washington trade down to a team that wants a quarterback, that would push Okudah to the Giants, but if Young goes second and the Lions don't want to or can't trade down, Okudah will likely become a Lion.

  Giants | Evan Engram still in boot    Thu Feb 27, 05:39 PM

New York Giants TE Evan Engram (foot) is still wearing a walking boot following surgery in late December. He's expected to be sidelined until training camp.

Footballguys view: Kaden Smith will have a full offseason to be the #1 tight end in a good development for him. The Giants have to make a fifth-year option decision on Engram in May, and while his production justifies it, his injury history makes it a risk that his 2021 salary will be guaranteed due to him being sidelined at the end of the season again.
