If only he didn’t suffer that ACL tear, his career could have been a stellar one.
Instead, he is still recovering from that injury, but had a consolation boom season.
After playing just two games in 2020, Barkley had 593 yards and two touchdowns last season.
It’s a good start to his road to recovery, but those numbers are nowhere near that of his rookie year, in which he had 1,307 yards and 11 touchdowns.
Hence, he has a long way to go to regain the form that enabled him to dominate the league.
So he’s working on becoming a star for the Giants again.
Saxon is working on that

Head coach Brian Dabol will find ways to get him involved in the offense.
Legendary fans have suffered for a long time and are hoping that the team can turn things around.
For his transformation to happen, Barkley must reclaim his spot as one of the NFL’s best running backs.
Barkley needs help from the offensive line
The former Penn State standout can’t do it alone and needs his own offensive line to make a hole for him.
A running back can only do so much if there are no gaps.
Unfortunately, the Giants line needs work.
They Have Failed to Protect the Quarterback Daniel Jones And couldn’t generate enough offense off the ground.
That’s why the Giants finished 24th in rushing yards last season with 99.3 per game.
While Barkley can do his job and work on his strengths, dominating the trenches will make his job easier.
