Buccaneers | Peyton Barber praised by head coach

Sun, 19 Aug 2018 20:23:32 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber has performed like a starting running back during the preseason, according to head coach Dirk Koetter. "He's doing everything he should be doing right now, and I think if we went out there and gave it to Peyton 20 times, we'd like what he does," Koetter said.

Fantasy Tip: Barber looks poised to open the year as the starter and should be a RB3 candidate for at least the first several weeks. Ronald Jones will likely earn more snaps as the year goes on, so grabbing Jones a few rounds after selecting Barber isn't a bad idea.

Buccaneers | Peyton Barber leads backfield

Sat, 18 Aug 2018 20:47:54 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed six times for a team-high 32 yards and caught one pass for three yards in a 30-14 preseason win over the Tennessee Titans Saturday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Ronald Jones is lurking, but Barber seems locked into the starting role for now and could be a RB3 to start the year. Pairing Barber with Jones might be a solid strategy in case Jones eventually overtakes Barber.

Buccaneers | Peyton Barber considered starter

Mon, 13 Aug 2018 10:43:13 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber is currently considered the team's starting running back, according to head coach Dirk Koetter. Koetter said the team also plans to use RB Ronald Jones this season but thought Jones' performance in the first preseason game was average.

Fantasy Tip: Barber may be the starter but will be sharing touches with Jones and Jacquizz Rodgers. There is a good chance that Jones will take over the starting job at some point during the 2018 season. Barber could be a No. 3 fantasy running back at this point, but owners may also want to select Jones if they draft Barber.

Buccaneers | Ronald Jones listed as No. 3 RB

Mon, 06 Aug 2018 14:15:23 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones is listed as the third running back on the Buccaneers' first unofficial depth chart behind RBs Peyton Barber and Jacquizz Rodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Take this with a grain of salt. Early depth charts don't carry a lot of importance. Jones possesses the most upside of any Tampa Bay running back no matter where he's listed. Barber warrants consideration in the middle to late rounds as more of a standard draftee.

Buccaneers | Peyton Barber in better shape

Fri, 01 Jun 2018 20:32:48 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber said he turned his excess fat into muscle this offseason, and running backs coach Tim Spencer said Barber appears faster and more agile.

Fantasy Tip: Although Tampa Bay added Ronald Jones in the draft, Barber is still a good bet to see carries on early downs and near the goal line. He's a risky RB3.

Buccaneers | Peyton Barber has full rearview

Wed, 09 May 2018 07:14:48 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber will likely share the load with RB Ronald Jones to start the season with RB Jacquizz Rodgers and RB Charles Sims behind them.

Fantasy Tip: Barber seems like a placeholder for now, and if Jones can learn the offense and pick up pass protection quickly, it could be a matter of time before Barber is usurped. Barber is an RB3 in fantasy, but he has a caution sign on him.

Buccaneers | Peyton Barber receives vote of confidence

Tue, 27 Mar 2018 09:34:48 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber is the starting running back "right now" and the team's confidence in him is "high," according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

Fantasy Tip: Barber was solid for the Bucs near the end of the season, but they need to aim higher if they want to put a spark back into an offense that disappointed last season. Koetter loves the vertical passing game and has all the ingredients necessary to have a successful one except a running back that can put some fear into defenses on play-action. If a top-five back like LSU's Derrius Guice or Georgia's Sony Michel is still on the board in the second round next month, don't be surprised to see Tampa Bay make the pick.

Buccaneers | Peyton Barber re-signs with Bucs

Tue, 13 Mar 2018 06:53:15 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers exclusive rights free-agent RB Peyton Barber signed a one-year, $630,000 deal with the Buccaneers Tuesday, March 13.

Fantasy Tip: Barber is in line to start, but the team is probably looking to add depth at the position. Barber could be worth an RB3 pickup if major changes don't come.

Buccaneers | Peyton Barber could start for Bucs in '18

Wed, 10 Jan 2018 20:18:58 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber "will be right there" in regards to his status of possibly being the club's lead running back going into 2018, according to head coach Dirk Koetter, and it will "definitely be a consideration."

Fantasy Tip: Barber opened many eyes in his second year in the NFL. The undrafted running back out of Auburn gained 335 yards on 78 carries over the final five games when he got extended run, and with Doug Martin scuffling for a variety of reasons, it would seem Barber has established himself as a fixture in Tampa Bay's running game to open up 2018. However, there's still a chance the Bucs may address the position during the offseason as well.

Buccaneers | Peyton Barber leads backfield

Sun, 24 Dec 2017 13:42:57 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber had a team-high 13 rushes for 51 yards in Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers while adding two receptions for four yards on his two targets.

Fantasy Tip: Barber was the lead back in the Tampa backfield despite the fact Doug Martin, Charles Sims and Jacquizz Rodgers were also active. He could be the back the Buccaneers lean upon heading into 2018 and beyond, but at this point it's anyone's guess.
