Saquon Barkley Practicing Again Friday

Friday, September 29, 1:51 PM

New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) looked to be moving pretty well in individual drills at practice on Friday, according to the New York Daily News' Pat Leonard. It's a positive sign for Barkley, who has now practiced both days this week leading up to a Monday night matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. The 26-year-old suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 2 and was forced to miss last Thursday's game against the San Francisco 49ers. Despite the progress, Barkley is no lock to play in Week 4 and is hard to trust as a fantasy option with the game being on Monday. If he's limited or out against Seattle, the G-Men will likely go with a backfield committee again, consisting of Matt Breida, Gary Brightwell and rookie Eric Gray.

Isiah Pacheco Ready To Roll For Week 4

Saturday, September 30, 12:46 AM

Running back Isiah Pacheco (abdomen) has been given the go-ahead to play in the Kansas City Chiefs' Week 4 game against the New York Jets. In Week 3 against the Bears, the back suffered an abdomen injury but was able to stay in that game and practice in full all week long. In spite of the injury, and a season-low 42% snap share, he had his most productive game of the season against Chicago, finishing with 15 carries for 62 yards and a touchdown and adding 16 more yards on his two receptions. Pacheco will still be splitting backfield reps with Jerome McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire against the Jets who have managed to prevent a rushing touchdown through the first three weeks of the season. Pacheco can again be considered a low-end RB2 in Week 4.
