Barkley is having an incredible season for the Giants. The RB has 1,055 rushing yards, 8 rushing TDs and 40 receptions. Barkley is 4th in the league in rushing yards, a welcome sign after missing the majority of the previous 2 seasons with injury.
A healthy Barkley has allowed the Giants to find themselves in the thick of the playoff race. As it stands before kickoff in Week 14, the Giants hold the 6th seed in the NFC.
