The Giants are 1.5 games behind division-leading Dallas and we've not reached the half-way point yet.

New York's season is far from over.

Plus they are getting their playmakers back. Tate has been in a couple of games, with Saquon and Engram coming back this week.

confirmed - spotted coming down Broadway last night ....

These are always the best posts.  I got a high ankle sprain at the YMCA and the recovery time was totally comparable to what Saquan Barkley will be going through.

Hessss backkkkkk! Just in time to play me! 

 

Same here.

You know, originally when the news came back that he was out 4 to 8 weeks, I thought to myself "Well I guess that's not the worst news, consideringI face the guy who has Barkley 4 weeks from now. Perfect. So I get to miss Barkley in the 2019 season. Don't even have to face him at all. What I nice pleasant little gift that is" 

And then ever since then, the handful of weeks since, the whole thing had been out of sight out of mind for me. Not once did I as much as even entertain the thought that 4 to 8 weeks still leaves open the possibility of returning on that minimum timeline. I had already written things off in my mind as "Never had to face Barkley in the 2019 season. Dodged him ".  Ya know, a past tense thought applied as an inevitable manner to a future event. Like I was just saying, it was "out of sight, out of mind"

Out of sight out of mind, that is, until this morning, when I clicked into the scoring preview for my upcoming matchup this week for the first time. And that's when I noticed that the normally meager scoring projection that my particular opponent had been sporting each week over the several weeks prior, suddenly, this particular opponent's scoring projection, well its quite robust. Which, of course caused me to do a double-take, where my initial thought was "132 points for my...wait, wha? Huh? 132 for this 2-4 squad who struggles to even hit 100 each week. The f**k? F**k's going on? 

And that's when I scrolled down to see that, not only was Saquon Barkley in his lineup, but he was there with a 17.8 point projection; and not only that, but a 17.8 point projection that was situated next to an opponent icon that displayed - Sunday, 1 pm est VS. Arizona Cardinals

And that's when I thought "Goddamnit. Motherf**ker. S**t. Didn't he just get hurt, what, like 10 days ago or some s**t? Has it been that long already?? And at home facing that turnstile of a defense, Arizona. Great. And now I see that, F**K me RUNNING...he practiced in full yesterday too!?. 40 spot, guaranteed."

And that brought me here, which brings things up to date.

Will not match the projection this week. Temper expectations.

 

Yeah, exactly my thinking (just traded for him, so might be a little more relaxed about it than the guys who drafted him). Just want him to get through this week without exacerbating the injury.

Could get some rain today in NJ, how does that effect his play?

Looks like the rain wont start until after 3pm. Giants nor Jets haven't played at Metlife since last Sunday so field should be great.
