Is Saquon Barkley in the right spot on these rankings?
Former NFL running back and current NFL Network analyst Maurice Jones-Drew has released a list where he’s ranked all 32 backs heading into the 2021 season. You might be wondering where New York Giants’ running back Saquon Barkley is on the list.
MJD has Barkley at number seven. Here’s what he wrote:
Rank 7. Saquon Barkley
2020 stats: 2 games | 19 att | 34 rush yds | 1.8 ypc | 0 rush TDs | 6 rec | 60 rec yds | 0 rec TDs
Saquon Barkley enters Year 3 with high expectations after a knee injury sidelined him for all but two games in the 2020 season. The Giants need him in a big way as the organization figures out whether this young team is heading in the right direction or if they need to rebuild … again. Saquon can absolutely take this rejuvenated Joe Judge-led team far. We just need to see it.
Dallas Cowboys’ running back Ezekiel Elliott is just above Barkley at number six, which I think is fair because of Saquon coming back from an ACL injury. If Barkley was healthy I think he would have to be ahead of Elliott.
