Saquon Barkley in for a big year if he stays healthy
One of the most exciting running backs in the NFL is no doubt Saquon Barkley of the New York Giants. Now that he’s coming back this season after suffering a torn ACL last year, he’ll have a chance to once again show that he’s one of the best at his position.
Cody Benjamin of CBS Sports has written an article that select the top-10 players that will bounce back in 2021. Barkley came in at number eight on his list.

Barkley isn’t just trying to erase memories of an injury that wiped out all but two starts in 2020. He’s also working to erase memories of a sluggish start to last season, when he averaged just 1.8 yards per carry before going down. New York may ease him back into a workhorse role through camp and even into September, but even if he misses another start or three this year, the pure physical talent is undeniable. When he’s on the field and up to form, he’s one of the most explosive play-makers at his position. It helps that Daniel Jones and Co. have a few other offensive toys this year.
Barkley should have a great season in 2021 as long as he can stay healthy due to the fact that the Giants have so many weapons on the outside. It will be difficult for opposing defenses to crowd the box with Kenny Golladay, Kadarius Toney, Sterling Shepard and company.
