Giants Running Back to Have "Huge Workload" This Season

Jordan Raanan of ESPN believes that New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley's 2022 workload "will be huge", as long as he can stay healthy. 

With basically no depth behind Barkley, the twenty-five-year-old should get the vast majority of carries and targets this coming season. 

Entering his fifth year, Barkley is looking to rebound from a poor 2021 performance, which saw him appear in 13 games, recording 593 rushing yards, two rushing touchdowns and averaging 3.7 yards per carry.  

To be fair, Barkley has been hampered by injuries the past few seasons with a sprained ankle in 2019, an ACL tear in 2020, and, just last season, another ankle injury. 

If Barkley truly is healthy, we could see the running back that exploded into the NFL in his rookie season, racking up over 2000 yards, 15 touchdowns, and receiving a Pro Bowl selection and AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.
