The New York Giants don’t have too many questions that need answering at the running back position, but there are some new faces and a few jobs on the line as we enter training camp here in 2020.

Saquon Barkley will be featured prominently in Jason Garrett’s offense, but what can we expect to see behind him?

Here’s a quick look at the Giants’ running back situation entering camp.

Saquon Barkley

After an incredible and record-breaking rookie season, Saquon Barkley was forced back down to earth in 2019 as the result of a high ankle sprain.

While Barkley still finished the year with more than 1,000 rushing yards, he was clearly a shell of his former self, only occasionally showing flashes of the elite talent we saw in 2018.

That has obviously provided some motivation for Barkley, who has been largely silent yet very visible this offseason.

Barkley has routinely posted workout videos in recent months, showing off his impressive physique and other-worldly athleticism. It’s clear he has set out to begin the season in the best shape of his life, likely in an attempt to curb any injury issues.

“I think Saquon is going to have a huge year for you guys this year. I was really happy watching the draft, I saw you guys picked up an offensive lineman and some guys, so that’s going to help your quarterback, that’s going to help Saquon and it’s going to help the whole team and the whole organization,” Penn State head coach James Franklin told Giants.com.

Barkley is likely to see a balanced workload in 2020, which should help keep him healthy and on the field for a full 16 games.
