1. RB Saquon Barkley

Saquon Barkley is the best player on the Giants and he has been since the day he was drafted. He does it all. He can eat yards through the middle, beat you to the outside and we all know how big of a threat he is as a pass-catcher.

There's no point in even trying to bore you with the stats because everyone from all fanbases knows just how good this guy is. He is a once in a lifetime athlete for this team and you don't let a guy like that walk out the door. He wants to be a Giant for life, so let him be a Giant for life. No one wants to pay running backs anymore, so there are a lot of people not wanting to pay the big money Saquon will require and that's understandable. However, Barkley is so much more than just a running back.

He is the heartbeat of the offense and he couldn’t be more vital to this team's success. Whenever he isn’t in the lineup, the offense continuously looks stuck in the mud, unable to do anything. If there is anyone who needs to remain in East Rutherford, it's No. 26.
