The New York Giants will have running back Saquon Barkley in action in Week 11 against the Washington Commanders after he was not listed on the team’s final injury report this week. 

Barkley had landed on the injury report after being limited in practice, but it isn’t enough to keep him out of Sunday’s game. The Giants certainly could use Barkley to help their offense that has struggled with Tommy DeVito at quarterback.

Despite being limited in practice this week, Barkley does not carry an injury designation on Sunday. 

Best Saquon Barkley prop bet for Week 11 vs. Commanders

Saquon Barkley OVER 18.5 rushing attempts

I love this prop for Barkley, as the Giants should rely heavily on their running game to try and stay in this matchup against the Commanders. 

Washington hasn’t been great against the run – allowing 4.4 yards per carry this season. That’s the eight-worst mark in the NFL. 

With DeVito under center, the Giants have to run the ball a lot, and Barkley has over 18.5 carries in three of his last five games. He had 21 carries in the first matchup with Washington this season.
