Week 7: at Atlanta Falcons

All RB vs ATL

FBG says: Good matchup. The Giants may be a mess right now, but don't blame the run game. Between rookie Saquon Barkley's otherworldly physical gifts and a line that's being reconstructed to get out of his way, this has become an attack that can't be boxed in by matchup. Any time Barkley is given an opening, he's a threat to spin pure gold out of it. Thus far, Barkley has shredded two elite run defenses (Jacksonville and Philadelphia) and shown quite well against a third (Houston). It's easy to see why: Barkley is blazing fast and wildly elusive, and with just a sliver of a gap he's fired onto the second level like a cannonball. And the much-maligned front line did a great job last Thursday of providing that sliver, clearing Eagles All-Pro Fletcher Cox and company out of Barkley's way. The guards in particular have shown major improvement over the young season, with Patrick Omameh and rookie Will Hernandez consistently using both chips and drive blocks to create room for Barkley. When linebacker Deion Jones and strong safety Keanu Neal went down with season-ending injuries, the Atlanta run defense waffled, but remained a passable unit. But with star nose tackle Grady Jarrett on the sideline as well, this group has been downright putrid. Dominant run plugger Jarrett has missed the last 2 games, and the team has ceded 192 yards and 2 touchdowns on 34 attempts to lead backs. Without Jarrett to occupy the front, the Jones-less linebacking corps has struggled mightily, often winding up redirected or out of position entirely in the run game. All told, if Jarrett can't return this week, Saquon Barkley's outlook is exceptionally bright. The Giants' improving front line would hold an enormous advantage over the Falcons' injury-ravaged unit.
