Saquon Barkley Could Return In Week 4

Sunday, September 24, 10:06 AM

New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) could return to the field in Week 4, per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. The talented 26-year-old missed Week 3 with a high-ankle sprain, but now that he has 10 days of potential recovery before the Giants' Monday Night Football appearance, Barkley could get healthy in time to play. He has 114 rushing yards, 41 receiving yards, and two touchdowns so far, making him the RB7 overall in fantasy football.

Tyler Allgeier - Week 3 Outlook for Fantasy Football

Wednesday, September 20, 9:27 AM

Atlanta Falcons running back Tyler Allgeier was the RB4 overall in standard scoring formats in Week 1 but had a disappointing Week 2 effort with 16 carries for 48 yards. However, his workload is still respectable enough to roll the dice on him in FLEX spots, especially in the deep leagues. In Week 3 against the Detroit Lions, the Falcons will continue to adopt a run-first approach and should have success on the ground. Allgeier is dependent on touchdowns to pay off in fantasy football, but he should have a good chance at finding the end zone against a mediocre defense. His workload could be reduced as the season moves forward, so now is the time to get the value out of him in fantasy lineups.
