Saquon Barkley Now Listed As Doubtful For MNF

Saturday, September 30, 2:22 PM

New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) is being listed as doubtful ahead of Monday Night Football against the Seattle Seahawks. Earlier on Saturday, Barkley was said to be a game-time decision for Monday but after the Giants' final practice of the week, he's now doubtful. Even with Barkley's practice progress this week, this news isn't too surprising considering that the 26-year-old is dealing with a high-ankle sprain. With Barkley doubtful, expect Matt Breida, Gary Brightwell, and rookie Eric Gray to work as a committee against a Seahawks defense that has been stout against the run this season.

Dameon Pierce Has Favorable Matchup In Week 4

Saturday, September 30, 12:12 PM

Houston Texans running back Dameon Pierce is hoping to build off his touchdown performance at home against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 4. Pierce has struggled to get going out of the gate, averaging just 2.5 yards per carry. But he'll enter this week with a favorable matchup. Pittsburgh has allowed the third most rushing yards through three weeks and the fifth most fantasy points to running backs this season. Despite Houston being down multiple starting offensive linemen, Pierce is an RB2 in fantasy in Week 4.
