Giants' Saquon Barkley struggling with return from ankle injury

New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) admits his return from an ankle injury has been mentally challenging.

What It Means:

"Even though physically you feel like you're back, mentally you might be telling yourself that you're back, but you watch yourself on film and see that you're running and you're protecting yourself," Barkley said. "You just don't really think you're doing it but naturally it's just happening." Barkley hasn't cleared 100 rushing yards since injuring his ankle in Week 3 and hasn't found the end zone since Week 8. He's averaging a full yard less per carry (4.0) than his rookie season (5.0). That said, Barkley is in a potential smash spot in Week 15 against a Miami Dolphins defense that is allowing the second-most rushing yards per game.

Saquon is the RB2 in numberFire's Week 15 fantasy rankings, at a cost of $8,300. Our models project Barkley for 20.9 FanDuel points on Sunday.
