Barkley left the Week 2 game with a knee injury

Summary

Saquon Barkley enters his third season as the centerpiece of the offense, and will attempt to re-establish his dominance after an injury-plagued second season. As a rookie, Barkley led the NFL with 2,028 yards from scrimmage and scored 15 touchdowns. Last year, Barkley dealt with a severely sprained ankle that limited him to 13 games. After rattling off 100-yard games in Weeks 1-2, Barkley scored just one touchdown and failed to hit 100 yards over the next eleven games. He regained his form in the final three games, amassing 393 yards rushing, 146 yards receiving, and five touchdowns. When healthy, Barkley is a coach's dream. He's equally comfortable running up the gut or breaking outside. And there are few, if any, better receiving backs in the league outside of perhaps Christian McCaffrey. Barkley will be one of the first players drafted in every format. (July 14)
