NFL Saquon Barkley Replacements Giants RB Darrel Williams Rex Burkhead Jeff Wilson Ronald Jones II Fantasy Football

Saquon Barkley was injured in the Week 3 Giants vs Bucs game and had a sprain in his right ankle. The New York running back was seen limping around the field after the game and an MRI report indicates that he won’t be back for a few weeks. Fantasy football owners are in trouble and need to replace Barkley with a new RB who could provide them similar ratings. Here are the available fantasy football running backs to replace Saquon Barkley for the next few NFL weeks.

Darrel Williams, Chiefs

The second-year Pro running back Darrel Williams is doing a great job for the Kansas City Chiefs after the main stars are injured. LeSean McCoy and Damien Williams have ankle and knee injuries which makes Darrel an ideal choice to draft in fantasy football. Williams has played 37 of the 68 offensive snaps for the Chiefs and touched the ball 14 times for 109 yards from scrimmage. Darrel Williams had the longest run for a 41-yard dash where his top speed reached almost 21 mph.

Rex Burkhead, Patriots

Rex Burkhead got the chance to open the game for New England Patriots in the absence of James White and the running back did a great job. In his first game against the Jets, Burkhead rushed for 47 yards and made a touchdown. He also had 11 carries and caught 6 of 7 targets from the backfield for another 22 yards. The Patriots will face the Bills in their next game which are worst in terms of passer rating and Burkhead can score great for the fantasy football owners.

Jeff Wilson, 49ers

Jeff Wilson is currently the second-best goal kicker of 2019 NFL season with six goal-to-carries. The 23-year-old running back for the San Francisco 49ers was an undrafted free agent but now he has proved his worth to the team. Wilson has converted four goal-carries into touchdowns and is leading the 49ers in the scoring department.

Ronald Jones II, Buccaneers

The second-year pro player Ronald Jones II had 80 rushing yards on 14 carries for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Jones is currently 15 yards ahead than the starting running back Peyton Barber and is expected to leave him further behind. The Bucs will face the Rams in Week 4 and it will be tough to score but also a great chance to improve the fantasy football rankings.
