3. Saquon Barkley has 125+ scrimmage yards and a touchdown
Saquon Barkley has been a consistent force against the Commanders since joining the Giants in 2018, tallying 711 yards and six touchdowns in eight matchups. As the Washington defense grapples with challenges this week, Barkley aims to further build on his impressive track record.
In the past two weeks, the Commanders' defense struggled, allowing over 100 rushing yards per game. The absence of traded players Chase Young and Montez Sweat has been evident in their defensive woes.
Fresh off a lopsided loss to the Cowboys, Barkley is poised to play a pivotal role in rushing and receiving against the Washington defense. With just 14 touches, a season-low last week, Barkley's fresh legs present a significant threat to Washington's front seven.
As Tommy DeVito assumes an increased role, Barkley's versatility in the receiving game adds a crucial dimension to the Giants' offense. Barkley, who last found the end zone against the Commanders in Week 7, aims to end the scoring drought in this week's matchup.
