Washington Football Team RB Peyton Barber (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Barber is expected to share playing time with J.D. McKissic this week with Antonio Gibson still sidelined. He should receive a majority of the carries during the game but may only be a flex option in deeper standard leagues.

Washington Football Team RB Peyton Barber (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 17.
Huddle Up: Barber appears to have a good chance to play this week and likely will share playing time with J.D. McKissic. Barber has received a solid amount of carries over the last several weeks but has not posted great yardage totals. He probably can be avoided in most leagues.

Washington Football Team RB Peyton Barber (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 16.
Huddle Up: Barber has a bigger role last week because of Antonio Gibson's injury and could receive a similar workload in Week 15 if Gibson sits again. He has received at least 10 carries in each of the last three games but has not posted great yardage totals. He can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Washington Football Team RB Peyton Barber rushed 12 times for 37 yards in Week 14 against the San Francisco 49ers while adding two catches for a yard on three targets.
Huddle Up: Barber had a total of 14 touches to 13 for J.D. McKissic, while the latter was much more productive. Barber is only worth a look as a RB4 heading into Week 15 against the Seattle Seahawks, which also happen to be McKissic's former organization.

Washington Football Team RB Peyton Barber ran four times for just six yards in Week 6 against the New York Giants while posting one reception for four yards on his only target.
Huddle Up: The five total touches were his most since Week 1, but he is still only worth a reserve roster spot in deeper fantasy leagues only at this point. Washington hosts the Dallas Cowboys in Week 7.

Washington Football Team RB Peyton Barber was limited to three carries for six yards in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns and he was not targeted in the pass game.
Huddle Up: Barber opened the season with two rushing scores, but he has done very little since. This type of performance is why he remains limited to the deepest of fantasy leagues as a reserve. Antonio Gibson is the back to target for fantasy purposes in the nation's capital. The Ravens pay a visit in Week 4.

Washington Football Team RB Peyton Barber rushed 17 times for 29 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Barber averaged less than two yards per tote, but he led the running backs with 17 total touches to 11 for rookie Antonio Gibson and four for J.D. McKissic. It's uncertain if that will continue going forward, but Barber isn't a bad target off the waiver wire in Week 2 just in case.

Washington Football Team RBs Peyton Barber, Antonio Gibson, Bryce Love and J.D. McKissic are all candidates to receive playing time in Week 1 since head coach Ron Rivera said the team will use a committee approach at the position.
Huddle Up: McKissic is listed as the starter in the first depth chart, but all four backs could have roles on offense. The team was high on Gibson during training camp, so he may have the most fantasy value of the four. Fantasy players may want to wait a week before having a Washington running back in their starting lineup.

Free-agent RB Peyton Barber (Buccaneers) signed a two-year deal worth $3 million with the Washington Redskins Tuesday, March 24. Barber receives $600,000 in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Barber will go from a timeshare with Ronald Jones in Tampa Bay to an even more crowded backfield in Washington. He's unlikely to be fantasy relevant while working behind Adrian Peterson, Derrius Guice and Bryce Love when all are healthy.
