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.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent RB Peyton Barber said he would like to re-sign with the Buccaneers this offseason.
Huddle Up: Barber shared playing time with Ronald Jones this season and finished with 470 rushing yards and six touchdowns. He probably will not be able to find a starting job this offseason and may be avoided in most fantasy drafts.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed for 13 yards on five carries against the Houston Texans in Week 16. He also lost a fumble during the game.
Huddle Up: Barber has been held to under 40 yards in five of the last six games and can be avoided in all fantasy leagues next week.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RBs Ronald Jones, Peyton Barber and Dare Ogunbowale are expected to take on a bigger role in the passing game than usual in Week 16 versus the Houston Texans with the team being ravaged by hamstring injuries to its receiving corps.
Huddle Up: It's unlikely many owners got this far riding the coattails of Jones, Barber or Ogunbowale, but it is possible a few fantasy squads in deeper leagues could use a flex-worthy option who could see a little work in the passing game. Jones probably possesses the highest upside of the bunch, but he's also subject to getting pulled at any time for missing a block as well. Owners are advised to avoid the situation at all possible in Week 16.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed 10 times for 17 yards in Week 15 against the Detroit Lions and he had two grabs for 23 yards.
Huddle Up: The Lions did a good job limiting the run game, but they were unable to stop the pass. Barber and Ronald Jones both did nothing, and should only be treated as RB4 options heading into Week 16 against the Houston Texans on Saturday.
Posted: 12/09/2019 1:51 am UTC
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed 11 times for 34 yards in Week 14 against the Indianapolis Colts and he added two catches for 19 yards on his two targets.
Huddle Up: Barber and Ronald Jones split the backfield touches and neither really did anything of significance. Both remain decent low-end RB3 or flex fantasy options heading into Week 15 against the Detroit Lions.
