Saquon Barkley Joining Eagles

Monday, March 11, 2:57 PM

Free-agent running back Saquon Barkley is signing with the Philadelphia Eagles on a three-year, $37.75 million deal. The deal includes $26 million in guaranteed money and has an additional $9 million available in incentives. After a 2018 rookie season that saw the former Penn State star go for over 2,000 yards from scrimmage and 15 touchdowns, he has struggled to stay healthy over a chunk of the next five years of his career. He missed 21 games from 2019 to 2021. He bounced back in 2022 with 1,312 rushing yards but regressed to 962 yards in 14 games in 2023. However, the Eagles believe in him as a game-changing running back, as his average salary ($12.58 million) ranks only below Christian McCaffrey, Alvin Kamara, and Jonathan Taylor. Although the Eagles' offensive line could take a hit after the retirement of Jason Kelce, Barkley should be playing behind the best offensive line of his career in 2024. He will have an immediate high-end RB1 upside in fantasy football.

Jahmyr Gibbs News

Jahmyr Gibbs Totals 114 Yards, Touchdown In Win

Sunday, January 21, 6:29 PM

Detroit Lions running back Jahmyr Gibbs rushed nine times for 74 yards and caught four passes for 40 yards in the NFC Divisional Round win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Gibbs delivered a 31-yard rushing touchdown early in the fourth quarter to help the Lions pull away in the 31-23 victory. The rookie remains a threat to score a touchdown or rip off a chunk play on every snap, so he remains a DFS next week despite a tough matchup with the talented San Francisco 49ers' defensive front.
