Fantasy Rise and Fall! What the hell happen to Saquon Barkley?
RISE….In the 2018 fantasy season, Saquon burst on to the scene like a Giant, no pun intended. He amassed 1,307 rushing yards with 11 touchdowns. Barkley doubled down as one of the NFL’s most explosive receiving threats, catching 91 balls totaling 721 yards with 4 touchdowns. Saquon entered the year as the number running back on 99% of all Fantasy draft boards.
Fall….Barkley held serve beginning his 2019 campaign with two solid fantasy outings. Week 3 the unthinkable occurred, he went down with the dreaded high ankle sprain. After missing three games Michael Barkley emerged ready to recapture his thrown as the top fantasy back. Yes, I did say Michael. He has yet to look like the Saquon of old. Barkley has only scored two touchdowns, and hasn’t totaled 100 rushing nor receiving yards in any contest following his injury.
The Question is….When will Saquon be Saquon?
