3.) Saquon Barkley used the “right” way
As stated above, Saquon Barkley hasnâ€™t been utilized properly in quite some time. Comparing Barkleyâ€™s statistical output from his rookie season to 2019, his yards per attempt fell by .4. It dropped from 5.0 to 4.6, and while the sample size in 2020 was small, it landed at 1.8.
Saquon has always been a solid pass catcher with more potential in that category, but the Giants simply havenâ€™t given him the reigns. Getting a complementary back to help keep him at 100% and rested could be a decent idea for the future. Similar to how the Saints utilize Latavius Murray, the Giants could get more creative in that way.
At a certain point, defenses know that Alvin Kamara is going to be the focal point when heâ€™s on the field, but they still canâ€™t stop him due to the scheming of their other players. Getting Barkley into space is something that needs to be done in the future.
