The New York Giants announced Week 11 inactives and Saquon Barkley is officially active for their matchup against the Buccaneers. Barkley was listed as questionable this week due to an ankle injury. He was limited in practice throughout the week.

Barkley is active and has been trending this way for quite some time. He got limited practice sessions in, so this designation is no surprise. The star running back is set to have a massive workload in both the running and receiving game, which is great news for fantasy managers who held onto him after he suffered the ankle injury. Barkley might have a tough time navigating Tampa Bay’s defense, which is great against the run. However, he’s still an automatic start in all fantasy football formats. Managers who had faith in him being active for Monday’s contest have been rewarded, and they’ll likely need a good outing from Barkley to win their matchup.
