2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
The success of rookie running backs Ezekiel Elliott, Alvin Kamara, Dalvin Cook, Kareem Hunt, and Leonard Fournette over the past two seasons has challenged the old narrative that first-year players cannot be stud running backs right out of the chute. Kamara, Hunt, Fournette, and Cook all finished as RB1's last season regarding points per game, while Elliott followed up his impressive rookie campaign in 2016 with a second-place finish last year.

After setting the college football world on fire last season and turning heads at the combine, Saquon Barkley became the first running back since Reggie Bush to be taken second overall in the draft. Barkley joins an excellent situation in New York on a team with an improved offensive line and a passing game that will not allow opposing defenses to sell out on the run.

With volume and opportunity being king in fantasy football, Barkley will be heavily used in both the rushing and ground game, making him a first-round pick in all formats with the upside as a top-5 RB in 2018.

Injury Saquon Barkley pulls hamstring Monday
No. 2 overall pick figures to take it easy this week
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 13, 5:25 pm

New York Giants
Saquon Barkley tweaked his hamstring at practice, source says he is fine. Giants do not seem too worried. (ESPN - Dianna Russini)

FFToday's Take: ESPN's Jordan Raanan followed a bit later and said Barkley suffered a "mild" hamstring strain. Owners should not expect to see much of the rookie for the remainder of the preseason, as hamstring strains tend to resurface if the player tries to rush the recovery. Nevertheless, Barkley should be a total yardage machine in 2018 and push for 70-80 catches if the Giants really want to max out his skills. He's a solid RB1 to build a fantasy team around in Round 1.
