Saquon Barkley To Do Individual Work Thursday

Thursday, September 28, 1:07 PM

New York Giants head coach Brian Daboll said that running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) will be on the practice field on Thursday to do individual work to see how he's moving. Barkley suffered a high-ankle sprain to his right ankle in Week 2 and didn't play last Thursday night on a short week. The Giants aren't ruling him out for this Monday night against the Seattle Seahawks, but the most likely scenario is that he's held out again, making him an extremely risky fantasy option in Week 4. If the 26-year-old misses a second straight game, expect the Giants to once again mix and match in their backfield with Matt Breida, Gary Brightwell and rookie Eric Gray. It's a situation to avoid in most fantasy leagues.

Limited Practice For Miles Sanders On Thursday

Thursday, September 28, 8:01 PM

Carolina Panthers running back Miles Sanders (groin) put in yet another limited practice on Thursday. Sanders continues to put in limited practices early in the year, but he's not really in any danger of missing the team's Week 4 tilt against the Minnesota Vikings this weekend. The 26-year-old is Carolina's clear lead back through three weeks. He found the end zone for the first time (twice) in the Week 3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, but he produced only 24 rushing yards on nine carries and 38 receiving yards on five catches. Sanders should see an uptick in touches with rookie quarterback Bryce Young (ankle) returning this weekend, making him a volume-based RB2 for fantasy managers.
