The New York Giants may not be special these days but they do have one very special player in running back Saquon Barkley. The second-year stud out of Penn State has been setting and shattering records ever since putting on a Giants uniform last September.

In 2018, Barkley led the NFL in total yards from scrimmage, was second in rushing and set the league record for receptions by a rookie running back.

This year, he is already duplicating those feats and is on the verge of tying another NFL milestone.

From NFL Media:

Barkley will be playing in his 19th NFL game and stands just 198 scrimmage yards from the 2,500 plateau. He could become among the fastest in NFL history to get there.

Barkley enters the week with 2,302 scrimmage yards (1,534 rushing, 768 receiving). Barkley also needs at least 100 scrimmage yards in the Giants’ game at Tampa this afternoon to match the NFL’s most games of 100-plus scrimmage yards over a player’s first 20 games (Edgerrin James, 16 games).

The Giants haven’t utilized Barkley to the extent that they should so far this season, but with rookie Daniel Jones now in the starting lineup at quarterback and several injuries to the receiving corps, Big Blue will have no choice but to lean on Barkley.

“Do I take it as a challenge?” said Barkley when it was suggested that teams will be lining up specifically to stop him. “No. I just understand it, it’s life. It’s been like that for me through high school, college, and now in the NFL. I recognize that God blessed me with a lot of talent, put me on a great team, with a great coach, great teammates, and a great offensive line, to put me in a position to be successful. I have had a lot of success at a young age, so I know that comes with the territory. So, is it a challenge? No. I just know that’s the mindset every single week, because my mindset every single week is to do what it takes to help my team win, and I have been doing that.

“When it’s not with the numbers, it’s just continuing to be a leader. When my opportunities come, try to find a way to get in the end zone a little bit more, if I have to make that block, or if I have to make that catch to help my team, I’ll do whatever it takes.”
