  • Saquon Barkley took the NFL by storm as a rookie. What does he have in store for fantasy football investors in Year 2?

We’re in the thick of the NFL offseason and it’s officially time to start fantasy football prep. I’ll be answering the biggest questions heading into the 2019 season; this is part of that series.


There’s a short list of running backs who are worthy of discussion as the top overall pick in fantasy drafts with PPR scoring.

Our choices mainly come down to:

  • Saquon Barkley
  • Ezekiel Elliott
  • Christian McCaffrey

We’ll focus on Barkley here in an effort to see just what makes the Giants’ franchise talent so successful, and to evaluate whether he’s worthy of the highest honor that any fantasy football owner is capable of giving out.
