Who said they wouldn't do this? Jones & Barkley haven't played a full game together yet.

Not saying they won’t, just hoping they do. He was used pretty sparingly at the beginning of the year but that was probably due to sitting out the preseason.

Also, don't get too caught up in points, the Giants had two-three scoring drives deep in Minny territory where they turned it over on downs instead of kicking a FG. Jones missed Shep on two wide open TD's on two separate occasions in the game. This game was closer than the final score showed.

My post had nothing to do with their previous game, Barkley didn’t play so obviously the results will be different when he gets back out there.

If he's active, I'd have to assume he's healthy and cleared. Gotta start him.

No way. If hes active you have to play him. Unless you have some great backups.

Yeah, I’ll just have to choose from that stable of RB1’s that I have stashed on my bench.

I would say he would be a low end RB1 to be conservative. So I guess if you have 2 or 3 other top 10 backs he’s a sit but most teams, probably around 99.999% don’t have that luxury so he’s a must start if active.

Having regret about picking him over CMC is about as hindsight 20/20 as it comes. He’s a baller, the most naturally gifted RB in the league, and he’s still gonna carry teams when he comes back

Exactly. Can't predict injures. Also look at his playoff schedule.

My healthy backs are Kerryon, Dontrell Hilliard and Jordan Wilkins. If Barkley's active, he'll be in MY lineup.

He isn't playing. No way. They'll bring him back on two weeks. Dirty a** belichick will probably tell his guys to step on the hurt ankle.

Imagine feeling yourself so much over your own team that you convince yourself a generational RB isn’t even worthy of a flex against them.

Yeah no.  You don’t draft Barkley at #1 overall to sit him.  I hope he doesn’t play so he can get an extra week of rest but if he does he goes right into my lineup without hesitation.  Not sure how the most talented RB and #1 pick in most drafts is an “easy sit” if he plays.

Considering how they handled Shep, I hope he sits too. Their medical staff is obviously clueless.

I see why Barkley would need to be in lineups but dont expect much. Jamie Collins all over that.

Still says he "likely" won't. Honestly, I hope he doesn't. Not a good match up and too many times have RB's tried to rush back after a high ankle sprain only to have it linger all season and cause more issues. Let's make sure he's 100%

Reporters... Id love to be able to play him but since i have the Pats D, i wouldnt mind 35 points from them while barkley takes another week to heal lol. 10 more days will be ok with me sitting 4-1.

Well duh, obviously reporters said it lol. That was my entire point. Reporters said this based on what? I've seen nothing from the coaches to warrant such a "report"...

I'm not one to blindly listen to reporters. In fantasy, you have to ignore the false journalism. For instance, when reporters were hyping Darwin Thompson as the next man up, when Reid's comments made it clear he preferred Darrel Williams, I ignored the thompson hype.....You can't just take a reporters word as bible. All they are doing is reporting their opinion.

 

In my opinion, I've seen no evidence to support that Saquon is unlikely to play. The coach has said it's a possibility that he plays and that's it. Reporters also said he was out 6-8 weeks or whatever. But you guys do what the F you wanna do!
