Buccaneers | Peyton Barber runs for 58 yards

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 18:51:28 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed 12 times for a team-high 58 yards in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions and he added five-yard reception on his only target.

Fantasy Tip: Barber led the team despite the return for Doug Martin from a one-game absence. Barber averaged 4.8 yards per run to just 2.6 yards per carry for Martin, and certainly looks to be the more effective back at this point. As long as there is a timeshare, however, he is nothing more than a RB3 or flex play in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Buccaneers | Peyton Barber tops century mark

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 15:54:30 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber stepped up with 23 rushes and 102 yards in Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Barber did a great job in place of Doug Martin (concussion), and the three-headed monster in the Tampa Bay backfield never materialized. Barber saw 27 total touches, while Jacquizz Rodgers had just three touches and Charles Sims totaled five. As long as Martin is sidelined, Barber is the back you want for fantasy purposes.

Buccaneers | Peyton Barber scores two TDs

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 13:14:04 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed for seven yards and two touchdowns on five carries against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Barber was used as a goal line back against the Falcons and could receive a bigger role next week if Doug Martin is not able to play. Owners should keep an eye on the situation because Barber could have some value next week against the Green Bay Packers.

Buccaneers | Peyton Barber picks up 11 rushes

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 17:01:03 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed 11 times for a team-high 34 yards in Week 9 against the New Orleans Saints and he added two catches for 20 yards on three targets.

Fantasy Tip: Barber was seeing some extra work with a lopsided game, so don't look into this too much. He isn't replacing Doug Martin, even though the veteran starter had a terrible afternoon.

Buccaneers | Tampa Bay to use RBBC without Doug Martin

Fri, 08 Sep 2017 10:43:08 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers will most likely be the first- and second- down back, while Charles Sims will handle most of the third-down work and Peyton Barber will be the goal-line back while Doug Martin serves his season-opening three-game suspension, according to ESPN's Jenna Laine.

Fantasy Tip: No real surprises here, although Laine points out Barber has improved quite a bit and may have been the most explosive back in camp behind Martin in the preseason. As things stand right now, expect Martin to handle the early-down and goal-line work upon his return, while Sims keeps his role and Rodgers becomes more of a handcuff.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin, Charles Sims top RB chart

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 16:28:50 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RBs Doug Martin and Charles Sims are the two top active running backs for the Week 15 game against the Dallas Cowboys with RB Jacquizz Rodgers a healthy scratch. RB Peyton Barber is also active.

Fantasy Tip: It's interesting, as Martin was not going much recently and it sounded like Rodgers would see a bigger piece of the offensive pie. Now, a week later, he is a healthy scratch. Martin and Sims could each split the carries since both have been injury prone, making for a tough fantasy situation.

Buccaneers | Hot hand situation at RB for Tampa

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 13:33:24 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RBs Peyton Barber and Mike James are expected to split the main ball carrying duties against the Chicago Bears in Week 10 with RB Jacquizz Rodgers (foot) out and RB Doug Martin (hamstring) unlikely to play. Beat writer Greg Auman predicts a hot hand situation, where the carrier starting out well gets more carries as the game progresses.

Fantasy Tip: It's a tough situation for fantasy owners to predict, although Barber has run the ball well when given the chance. The Bears rank 14th against the run, allowing 100.8 yards per game. Barber is a good flex option in leagues of 12 or more teams while James is only worth attention in deeper formats.

Buccaneers | Peyton Barber quiet in start

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 22:00:13 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber made the start in Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Nov. 3. He carried 11 times for just 31 yards and he added four receptions for 24 yards on five targets.

Fantasy Tip: Barber didn't do much with the golden opportunity with Jacquizz Rodgers in street clothes. Doug Martin is nearing a return, and Rodgers should be fine soon, too. There is no sense in adding Barber in most fantasy leagues.

Buccaneers | RB committee for Tampa Bay on TNF?

Tue, 01 Nov 2016 14:35:31 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter suggested that the team might employ a running back committee in the next game Thursday, Nov. 3, against the Atlanta Falcons. "When you have three guys who have been here short-term, other than Peyton [Barber], your roles aren't very clearly defined right now," Koetter said. "We'll try to patch it together one week at a time until we get some reinforcements back."

Fantasy Tip: With Doug Martin and Jacquizz Rodgers likely out for Week 9, that means the Bucs will only have the likes of Peyton Barber, Antone Smith and Mike James in the backfield, making it a situation to avoid for fantasy owners. Even in deep leagues, it's tough to gauge what each tailback will provide. Barber had a strong game two weeks ago versus the 49ers, collecting 84 rushing yards on just 12 carries, but was then limited to just one touch in last week's contest while being significantly out-snapped by Smith.

Buccaneers | Peyton Barber surprises vs. Niners

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 21:56:15 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed 12 times for 84 yards with a touchdown in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Tip: Barber took advantage of the matchup against the league's worst-ranked rushing defense. Temper expectations going forward, as Barber and the Bucs won't face this kind of ultra-favorable matchup most weeks. Barber was seeing time behind Jacquizz Rodgers, and could be worth a look in deeper fantasy formats in Week 8 against the Oakland Raiders.
