Week 11: vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

All RB vs TB

FBG says: Tough matchup. Rookie Saquon Barkley continues to flash elite burst, speed, and short-area quickness, and he's already one of the league's most dynamic players. Unfortunately, at the moment, there's not much production coming on the ground. He's totaled just 148 yards and 1 score over the last 3 weeks, averaging 3.15 per carry in the process. Barkley is a homerun guy at heart and is still refining his attack - without much power or a dependable line, he's boom-or-bust on virtually every snap. There's been some improvement up front, particularly from the guards, but this remains a shaky line at best. As a result, Barkley typically struggles to generate much on the ground unless he's able to find a crease and erupt for a long scamper. That could come at any moment, of course, but he hasn't registered a run longer than 15 yards since Week 6. Barkley is far too explosive to ever count out fantasy-wise, regardless of matchup - he's already shredded the solid run defenses of Jacksonville (18 for 106 and 1 touchdown), Houston (17 for 82 and 1), and Philadelphia (13 for 130 and 1). But his rushing floor is low for an elite fantasy back, and without his high-volume receiving numbers, he'd be exceptionally difficult to trust. The Buccaneers run defense has actually served as a fairly tough fantasy matchup. With a rebuilt nucleus and a horrid pass defense that funneled the ball into the air, they're allowing running backs to average just 4.00 yards per carry. In fact, lead runners have managed just 62 a game, and only 3 (Nick Chubb, Joe Mixon, and Christian McCaffrey) have topped 70. It's not a dominant group by any means, though, and it's trending down of late - all 3 of those above performances have come over their last 4 games. With Kwon Alexander on injured reserve and Lavonte David likely to join him soon, it doesn't matter much that the retooled line has improved so much. It's fair to expect even more breakdowns and missed tackles on the second level, and Saquon Barkley looks like a tall task for the reserve linebackers.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 4 vs NO (2 / 6 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 17 / 0 rec)

Wayne Gallman fumbled early in this game and was not heard from again. He can't reliably produce alongside Barkley in this offense, not worth rostering in any league.
