Saquon Barkley is still a special player
There are a lot of very good running backs in the NFL right now and Saquon Barkley of the New York Giants deserves to be mentioned as one of the best. But the one thing that’s been holding him back lately has been his inability to stay healthy.
Patrik Walker of CBS Sports has ranked the top-10 running backs in the NFL and Barkley is listed at number eight.
Number one on Walker’s list is Derrick Henry is number two. Other backs ahead of Barkley are Dalvin Cook, Alvin Kamara, Ezekiel Elliott, Nick Chubb and Aaron Jones.
If Barkley can get back to his dominating ways in 2021, there is no doubt in my mind that he will deserve to at least jump back into the top-five.
What’s really interesting is that Barkley was left off of Pro Football Focus’ top-25 player under the age of 25 list. This was a surprise, but I think he will earn their respect back if he can stay healthy this coming season and make opposing defenders look silly in the open field.
