NY Giants: GMENHQ Staff Predictions for 2021 team stat leaders
Rushing Yards & Touchdowns
Stephen Samra: Saquon Barkley -1,352 yards & 13 TDs: The league needs a reminder – Saquon Barkley uses his generational talent and inspiration from Adrian Peterson to have a tremendous season.
Matt Lombardo: Saquon Barkley: 1,225 yards & 11 TDs: Barkley might not reach his dynamite output from his rookie season in 2018, but if he can stay healthy and on the field for the majority of 17 games, he’ll come close. The NY Giants would be wise to give a decent share of carries to Devontae Booker to keep Barkley fresh and healthy.
Carly Mersky: Saquon Barkley – 1,105 yards & 5 TDs: I think my choice is obvious because he’s coming back after missing most of the season last year. They’ll ease him back but I think as the season progresses he’ll get more touches and look like vintage Saquon.
John Esposito: Saquon Barkley – 1,465 yards & 13 TDs: I strongly believe we’ll see a huge bounceback year from Saquon. So-much-so that he’ll be the 2021 Comeback Player of the Year.
Danny Friedman: Saquon Barkley – 1,100 yards & 7 TDs
Connor McJunkin: Saquon Barkley – 1, 262 yards & 9 TDs: It’s no secret that when healthy Barkley is a Top-3 running back in the NFL. It’ll be interesting to see the workload he gets early in the season coming off a major injury, but with a (hopefully) better OL and more dangerous passing attack, Barkley should pick up steam later in the season and easily be a Comeback Player of the Year contender
