When speaking about the best running backs in the NFL, one name that gets mentioned early in the conversation is Saquon Barkley. And for good reason. In his first two seasons with the New York Giants, Barkley has proven that he’s one of the most dynamic playmakers that the NFL has to offer.
To begin his career in 2018, all Barkley did was gain 2,028 yards from scrimmage and 15 total touchdowns as a rookie. As a result, he would be named the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year in his inaugural season in the NFL.
