Week 6: vs Philadelphia Eagles

All RB vs PHI

FBG says: Bad matchup. Saquon Barkley continues to be the guy that we thought he would be this season which is tremendous out of the backfield as a receiver, but inconsistent at times as a running back often relying on breaking a long run. We saw this last week where he was largely bottled up for just 48 yards on 15 carries but was able to make up his value in the receiving game. The issue for Barkley is two-fold. The first is that the offensive line continues to be a problem for the Giants who have tried to rotate some players through to improve it including cutting Ereck Flowers, but it is still a work in progress. The second issue for Barkley is that he has to learn to utilize his size to just take what the defense is giving him as often he tries to bounce something outside to go for a big play instead of just being comfortable with a 3-4 yard gain. Look for him to continue to develop as a runner and improve throughout the season. The Eagles run defense remains one of the best of all time, as they have not allowed an opposing running back to go over 42 yards this season. This is a front seven that teams would dream of as Fletcher Cox and Brandon Graham dominate the defensive line along with Michael Bennett. At linebacker, the Eagles are deep with experience with Jordan Hicks and Nigel Bradham. This is a very difficult matchup for the Giants this week.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 1 vs JAX (2 / 8 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Jonathan Stewart accomplished very little and only got two carries. The Giants are going to use Barkley a lot this season, veteran Stewart will have no fantasy value with the team as it is. He should not be owned in any league.

Giants | Jonathan Stewart may return (Mon Oct 1, 07:27 PM) - New York Giants RB Jonathan Stewart (foot) may be activated from the Reserve/Injured list later this season, according to head coach Pat Shurmur. Stewart is expected to be sidelined eight weeks because of his foot injury.

Our View: The Giants are all about Saquon Barkley in the backfield. Stewart would give them veteran depth...but not much else...upon his return.
