Week 14: at Philadelphia Eagles - $

All RB vs PHI

FBG says: Tough matchup. After an incredible rookie campaign, poor offensive line play, coupled with a potentially-lingering ankle injury, has hindered Saquon Barkley's rushing production in 2019. Barkley's 2019 campaign has been one to forget, as he: hasn't registered a 100-yard game since Week 2, has just 2 rushing touchdowns on the year, and has seen his efficiency dip down to just 4.0 yards per carry. This lack of production is thanks to both a weak offensive line, which checks in at 21st in Matt Bitonti's offensive line rankings after last week and a lack of volume. The Giants' run offense is the 5th-lowest volume unit in the league, as they have frequently played from behind, leading to high-volume passing days. Overall, even Saquon Barkley's supreme talent level has been unable to overcome a lack of volume and poor blocking in the trenches. Week 14 shapes up as another tough matchup for the second-year back, as he faces off with Philadelphia's top-tier run defense. Aside from Philadelphia's defensive line, their defense generally lacks top-end run-stopping talent. However, defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz's identity as a play-caller is to design and call a defense predicated around shutting down opposing rushing attacks, and he excels in this area. The Eagles, which have faced low volume rushing attacks, as their opponents have opted to pick on their weak pass defense, rank in the top-10 of most run-stopping metrics. The Eagles rank 9th in the NFL in fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs a testament to their ability to limit raw rushing totals. They are also a very efficient run defense, allowing just 4.0 yards per carry, the 8th-best mark in the NFL through 12 games this season. Along the defensive line, Brandon Graham and Fletcher Cox set the tone for the defense, doing a great job both against the run and the pass. Elsewhere, the Eagles lack significant weak links against the run, while the only other notable run-stopper is safety Malcolm Jenkins, who leads the team with 45 total tackles on the season. In total, the Eagles should give Saquon Barkley, and the New York Giants fits on the ground in Week 14 as they load the box to focus on shutting down New York's number-one offensive weapon with Eli Manning back under center.
