Saquon Barkley 2020 Outlook

Recommended Posts

There seems to be no thread for this boy.

I guess the general opinion is that he and CMC are the first tier and one for their own.

 

If you had the #1 pick. Who is your pick?

CMC no doubt , both are in that god tier.  And I do expect his numbers to dip slightly this season , but the opposite for Saquon.

D. Henry would be my #1 followed by CMC then Barkley

Considering CMC got his payday after year 3, I think Saquon's in a pseudo contract year of sorts.  I expect big things and happily have him at 2 overall.

CMC seems like the obvious choice but I’m not so sure.

New coach and new QB is scary. No doubt CMC has the talent to succeed anywhere but it’ll be interesting.

Barkley and CMC both see 95%+ snaps more or less. However, Giants offense should be poised to take a step forward this year and I also believe Barkley is the superior talent.

Really rather have pick 2 than 1. Although 5 seems like the sweet spot this year. Get either Thomas, Kamara, or Cook.

Having the 2nd pick is a blessing in disguise. Barkley is poised for a huge season, I can feel it. But if I was picking first it would be extremely difficult for me to pass on Cmac. This year is beautiful anything in the top5 you come away with a stud RB.

Barkley is probably my favorite player in the league outside of my own team and even I don't know if I can pass on CMC.

Just such a damn safe pick. Dude has no competition, never gets hurt, and never takes plays off. Barkley does have a higher ceiling for sure but CMCs floor is unmatched at a position that is known to be high risk.

I’m also torn between Barkley & Cmac at #1. I expect panthers defense to be pretty bad this year as they are very young, leading to a lot of shootouts. Given Cmac’s receiving potential and TD upside in this situation, I give him the slight edge right now.

Barkley is just so darn good & talented, plus they’ll be bringing that Dallas run game style to NY with Garret in town. 

I think I just talked myself out of knowing who to take at 1 lol

I owned Barkley in the past two drafts his rookie year he was awesome, Sophomore season not so much. I'll be selecting some other RB in 2020.

I don't think that given Barkley's injury last year there's any way you can take him over CMac.

That said, is it possible he can outperform him?  Sure.  But you pay for the safety at the top, not the upside.

If DHC isn’t making some dumb a** claims in the off-season then it isn’t DHC...

DHC gonna DHC. It's more tongue in cheek than you might think, just don't react too much ;)

Do you choose him over those two in standard leagues either?

A Saquon thread turning into “who are you picking with the number one pick?”

I don’t see him finishing any worse than the #3 RB barring injury. There’s obviously the unknown with a first time HC but he said he wanted to focus on the run. Only safer 1st round RB picks are CMC and I guess Henry.

Ok?

It’s completely relevant to Barkley. There’s nothing else to discuss about when it comes to him.

I can’t remember a player who disappointed so thoroughly, then redeemed himself so completely, as a fantasy asset... 

 

...unless of course you didn’t survive part 1 of that...

I had to scroll back to see what you meant,but I guess you're talking about Henry?

To be honest, I was even more disappointed when Henry redeemed himself ;)

The Giants have a very hard schedule.

 

I am going to drop him down significantly.  Perhaps about number 5 overall.
