    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed 13 times for 82 yards and caught four passes for 24 yards and a touchdown in a 34-29 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: It was Barber's best performance of the season, and while he remains Tampa Bay's lead back, early deficits have forced the Buccaneers to abandon the run in most of their games. A Week 7 matchup with the Cleveland Browns should push Barber into flex territory.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 1:35pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed for 24 yards on seven carries against the Chicago Bears in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Barber was facing a tough Bears defense and did not receive a lot of carries with the team trailing for a majority of the game. He should have more success against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6 and can be at least a flex option.

  • Posted: 9/24/2018 8:49pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber ran eight times for a team-best 33 yards in Week 3 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday, Sept. 24.

    Huddle Up: Barber had a respectable 4.1 yards per carry in the game, but the Bucs abandoned the run rather early with a lopsided score on the board by halftime. It was a pass-happy offense in the second half as the Bucs rallied to get into the game. Barber and the Bucs run game face another tough matchup in Week 4 on the road against the Bears.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 1:29pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed for 69 yards on 19 carries against the New Orleans Saints in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Barber received most of the work at running back and likely will receive a similar workload against the Philadelphia Eagles. He can be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option next week.

  • Posted: 8/24/2018 7:33pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers BR Peyton Barber rushed five times for 34 yards and a touchdown against the Detroit Lions in the preseason Friday, Aug. 24.

    Huddle Up: Barber continues to perform well with the starting unit, and while Ronald Jones is going to see some touches, Barber looks poised to open the year as the lead back. He's a RB3 candidate.

  • Posted: 8/19/2018 8:23pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 8/18/2018 8:47pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 8/13/2018 10:43am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 6/1/2018 8:32pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 5/9/2018 7:14am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 3/27/2018 9:34am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 3/13/2018 6:53am ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 1/10/2018 8:18pm ET

    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.'

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 1:42pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/18/2017 10:14pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber amassed 53 rushing yards on 13 carries, as well as 15 receiving yards on three receptions in the team's Week 15 loss Monday, Dec. 18, versus the Atlanta Falcons. In addition, he lost a fumble.

    Huddle Up: Barber got the start with Doug Martin being inactive due to a violation of team rules but didn't churn out much with the opportunity. In his defense, quarterback Jameis Winston was simply outstanding, so it made sense to stick to the passing game. Barber has shown plenty of RB2 potential, however, and should sustain that status if he keeps getting the bulk of the work in Tampa Bay's backfield.

  • Posted: 12/18/2017 2:57pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber is expected to be the team's starting running back against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 15, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Barber has recorded 160 yards over the last two games and probably will receive most of the carries against the Falcons. He will still share playing time with the other running backs on the roster but could be a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 6:51pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 3:54pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 1:14pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 5:01pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.
