Giants RB Saquon Barkley Wins the AP 2018 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award

Giants rookie running back Saquon Barkley had to run behind what was a rather weak offensive line in 2018, but he made the most of it week after week.

The Giants top player in 2018 was honored on Saturday night, as he was named the AP 2018 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, beating out Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield.

Barkley, the second overall draft pick who rushed for 1,307 yards and 11 touchdowns drew 26.5 votes from a nationwide panel of media members who regularly cover the league.

Mayfield earned 21.5 votes. In addition to the award, Barkley also will soon be sporting a chain, courtesy of Mayfield, as a result of a wager with the rookie quarterback on the outcome.

Barkley also made a team-high 91 receptions, an NFL record for a rookie running back, for 721 yards, and his 2,028 yards from scrimmage led the league.
