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.

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.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed for 44 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13.
Huddle Up: Barber has been sharing playing time with Ronald Jones this season but had one of his best games of the season this week. He likely will continue to receive at least 10 carries each game but should only be a possible flex option in deeper leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed for 32 yards on 11 carries against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12.
Huddle Up: Barber split the carries with Ronald Jones this week and has received at least 10 carries in three of the last five games. Barber probably will only be used as a runner moving forward and can be avoided in most leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Dare Ogunbowale played 43 percent of the offensive snaps in the Week 11 loss to the New Orleans Saints Sunday, Nov. 17. Ronald Jones played 31 percent and Peyton Barber made up just 18 percent.
Huddle Up: Ogunbowale rushed just twice for no yards and caught three of four targets for only 10 yards. The poor performance from QB Jameis Winston threw things in a blender for the Bucs' offensive plans, but Jones should be expected to be the most productive of an inconsistent trio.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber caught two passes for 11 yards and one touchdown against the New Orleans Saints in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Barber has been used mostly in the running game but was involved in the passing game this week since the team only ran the ball eight times. He should resume his role as a runner next week but can be avoided in most leagues.
