Summary

Saquon Barkley has a lot to prove to himself and his organization. GM Dave Gettleman questioned whether the team would pick up Barkley's fifth-year option because of health concerns, which is a stunning turn of events after he was considered the team's offensive centerpiece 12 months ago before tearing multiple knee ligaments. When healthy, Barkley is on a shortlist of the league's best ball carriers. As a rookie, he led the league with 2,028 yards from scrimmage and scored 15 touchdowns. He can run inside with power, break outside, is deadly in the open field, and is an above-average route runner with soft hands. All eyes will be on Barkley this summer; if he's healthy and practicing, the Giants may have a puncher's chance of fielding a league-average offense. If his rehab lingers, all bets are off. (May 18)

Giants | Saquon Barkley in attendance but idle (Tue Jun 8, 12:48 PM) - New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley (knee) is at the facility and rehabbing Tuesday, June 8, during organized team activities, but he won't be participating.

Our View: Barkley is coming back from the knee injury that cost him all but two games last year. Not only is he not participating in OTAs, he is not expected to be a full participant during the Giants first few practices of training camp as a precautionary measure. He's got a ton to prove this year coming back from injury, and Fantasy GMs are taking him off the board currently at RB4 (1.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.
