With Super Bowl LIII just two weeks away, the New York Giants are in full offseason mode preparing for free agency and the 2019 NFL Draft. Even though the season is over, fantasy football managers are still keeping an eye out preparing for next season.
Despite fantasy draft preparation being on a halt for the next few months, the Giants had a mixed bag when it came to fantasy relevance during the 2018 season.
Here’s a look at the studs and duds for the Giants in fantasy football in 2018:
The expectations were high when the Giants selected Barkley with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, but what the Penn State product was able to do in fantasy leagues was truly amazing.
Finishing as the RB2 in half-PPR leagues, Barkley was a model of consistency throughout the season leading many fantasy managers to the playoffs and beyond. The risk of taking Barkley with a first-round pick paid off in a huge way.
Barkley averaged 21.3 fantasy points per game while recording fewer than 12 fantasy points in a game just one time. Barkley will be going at the top of drafts for years to come.
