Bucs say RB Peyton Barber has edge on starting RB job

Tampabay.com - [Full Article]

It's still too early in the preseason to declare a starter at some positions, but Bucs coach Dirk Koetter took a step in that that direction Monday at running back.

After an underwhelming performance by rookie Ronald Jones in the preseason opener at Miami on Thursday in which Koetter said the second-round pick from Southern Cal was "average," it appears as though Peyton Barber has a good grip on the position.

"Peyton is our starter," Koetter said Monday. "We're definitely going to use Ronald Jones and take advantage of what he's going to do. We do have the two veteran backs behind him. Again, we've got three more preseason games. Let's just let it sort out a little more."

Fantasy Impact:

As the story said, most NFL teams use a committee approach to the running back position and the Bucs will be no exception. In addition to Barber and Jones, they also have Rogers, Sims and Wilson fighting for the role of third-down back. Keep in mind, we think Jones ends up the better fantasy back and have him ranked as our No. 34 RB.
