The New York Giants will travel to Philadelphia to the on the Eagles. Running back Devontae Booker has been right up there with Saquon Barkley in terms of numbers. He’s played extremely well in the opportunities they’ve given him.

Fantasy Football analysis: Giants RB Devontae Booker

In 13 games, Booker has 113 carries for 506 yards and two touchdowns. Surprisingly, Booker is the leading rusher for the Giants this season. He’s played three more games than Barkley but it’s still surprising. Imagine somebody telling you that prior to this season.

The Philadelphia Eagles defense allows 106.1 rushing yards per game which ranks 10th in the NFL. This is a tough one because I think the Giants will try and hand the ball off more as Fromm is so inexperienced. I think Booker will be utilized a ton once again this Sunday.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

In season-long fantasy and DFS, Booker should start.
