RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

+ Add To Watchlist

Despite the Bucs utilizing a second-round selection on Ronald Jones II, Barber's diverse skill set is projected to afford him a consistent role in the coming season, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports. "I think he has a high ceiling," said Buccaneers running backs coach Tim Spencer. "Peyton can catch the ball and he can run routes even though he is a good-sized back. I like the way he runs, I like his attitude, I like the way he's learning and being able to pick up things."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Barber exceeded expectations in 2016, making the practice squad out of preseason and then receiving a promotion to the active roster just before regular-season opener. After exclusively playing special teams in the first four weeks, injuries to Doug Martin and Charles Sims eventually led to double-digit carries for Barber in three contests overall, and he finished the season with 223 rushing yards (4.1 yards per rush) and one touchdown in 15 games. The undrafted second-year man survived roster cutdown day, presumably due to his ability to contribute on special teams. He'll probably need a wave of injuries in front of him to have a meaningful role on offense.

2016

The undrafted free agent out of Auburn was an early entrant into the 2016 draft, after amassing 1,128 yards from scrimmage and 13 touchdowns during his sophomore 2015 campaign. As with any non-drafted player, Barber faces fairly long odds to make the final roster. However, with his competition for a third tailback role presently consisting of the solid but unremarkable duo of Mike James and Storm Johnson, the 22-year-old could conceivably catch the eye of coaches with a strong camp and preseason.
