Saquon Barkley (knee) has chance to be ready for Giants' opener

New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (knee) has a chance to be ready for Week 1 against the Denver Broncos, per Jordan Raanan of ESPN.

What It Means:

Giants head coach Joe Judge told Raanan that the team plans to take a "long-term" approach with Barkley in his return from an ACL injury. The uncertainty surrounding Barkley's status has caused his ADP to slowly trickle down from 1.04 to 1.06 over the past couple months. Devontae Booker and Corey Clement would presumably share backfield work if Barkley is unavailable for the start of the season.

Barkley is currently the RB8 in numberFire's preseason fantasy rankings. Our models expect him to average 102.3 yards from scrimmage per game while totaling 13.29 touchdowns this season.
