1. RB Saquon Barkley
While this is not necessarily a player who will “breakout” as we have seen what Saquon Barkley is capable of when fully healthy, this is more of a “resurgence” as Barkley has not played a full season since his rookie year. That season, he tallied 1,307 rushing yards and 11 rushing TDs alongside 91 receptions for 721 yards and 4 receiving TDs.
In similar fashion to Daniel Jones, Barkley’s potential has been held down by health, a very poor offensive line, and an incompetent coaching staff. However, it is seeming like this will finally be the year we see Barkley return to his rookie year caliber of play.
Despite the poor offensive line and coaching staffs of the past, the number one thing that has been holding Barkley back over the years has been his health. However, it seems as if Barkley has finally returned to full health and is ready to make an impact once again.
If Barkley can remain healthy for the majority of the 2022 NFL season, it is likely that we see him return to his Pro-Bowl form and potentially be one of the best RBs in the league like he was destined to be. We’ll see if No. 26 will be able to live up to the hype.
