Barden's season was headlined by the nine-catch, 138 yard outing against the Panthers in Week 3. His totals on the year come to 12 catches for 198 yards and no TDs.
Fantasy Impact: Barden didn't play last week against the Browns to put Reuben Randle on the fantasy radar. Barden filled in nicely for Hakeem Nicks, but since Nicks is likely back, Barden projects to lose several snaps. He projects better as an outside receiver, so he might see some snaps in three-wide sets while Victor Cruz moves into the slot.
The Giants would be wise to open up their passing game and stretch out their D. What's more, the Niners and their stud linebackers would be slightly negated with this strategy. Barden shouldn't be owned or started in almost any format.
