1. New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley

The lone bright spot on the Giants last season was rookie Saquon Barkley. The talented Giant had the 2nd highest number of fantasy points among all running backs in 2018 and scored less than ten fantasy points just twice all season. He’ll be the main focal point of the Giants offense again this season and enters week 1 as the top option at the position.

2. New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara

Mark Ingram is gone, which means Kamara will now take on a bigger role in the Saints offense, even with Latavius Murray in the lineup. In the first four games last season (without Ingram), Kamara averaged a whopping 24 fantasy points per game. Kamara starts with a good matchup at home against the Texans.
