Saquon Barkley – New York Giants
This should be a consensus for best rookie to draft at running back. At this point, Saquon might not only be the best rookie running back to draft, but he might be one of the best running backs. Here are a few reasons why:
The Giants NEED a strong running game this year. With the return of OBJ, the passing game should be much improved. Using Barkley to run the ball will create a balance for the offense. In addition, it should take the pressure off of Eli Manning and the rest of the offense.
With Barkley’s skill set of being able to run and catch the ball very well, expect the Giants to use him in a number of ways. They will use him for screens, and in the passing game as a safety blanket.
Barring injury, fantasy owners can’t go wrong by selecting Saquon Barkley.
