Draft note
by John Paulsen
Despite good offseason reports regarding Ronald Jones, it appears that the Bucs will go into the 2019 season with Barber as their lead back. When new HC Bruce Arians was asked about which players surprised him when he was self-scouting the team, he mentioned Barber. “I love him, for a man that size. You know, when you watched the tape, you don’t see him as 230 [pounds]. You think he’s a 205-pound running back because he’s got great feet,” Arians said of Barber. “Not every back’s going to be a home run hitter. He gets those 10, 15-yard runs breaking tackles, power runner, punishing runner. When we’re building something, that’s the kind I want to build around.” Barber finished as the No. 27 running back in half-PPR formats, but he’s the 46th running back off the board in the double-digit rounds. For owners going WR/TE-heavy in the early rounds, Barber is a good target later in the draft. If the new regime can get Barber’s YPC up from 3.7 to 4.0, and he scores two additional touchdowns, he’s looking at a low-end RB2 finish.

TB RB Peyton Barber - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Carolina Panthers

Peyton Barber scored a touchdown last week while rushing eight times for 32 yards. He also caught a pass for negative one yard. Barber is stuck in a timeshare with Ronald Jones and Dare Ogunbowale, so his ceiling is greatly limited. This week he faces a Panthers team he had success against earlier in the year (23 carries, 82 yards, one TD), but it'd be surprising to see him get the same amount of touches as he did in that Week 2 matchup. Barber is a touchdown-or-bust low-end flex play.
