2018 Fantasy Outlook
Barber went from depth option to lead role after Doug Martin flopped, and for the second straight year Barber showed why he's not particularly well suited for the role. He has the frame and low pad level to bang out yards between the tackles, but he doesn't have the speed, burst or elusiveness to do much damage on the rare occasions when he does make it to the second level, and he hasn't shown any ability to catch passes. The Bucs drafted Ronald Jones II in the second round and will give the rookie every chance to cement his spot at the top of the depth chart, but Barber's skill set could allow him to hang onto a role as the team's short-yardage and goal-line back in an effort to save the 205-pound Jones from unnecessary punishment.

Scores for third straight game
RBTampa Bay Buccaneers
December 2, 2018
Barber carried 16 times for 45 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Panthers. He also lost a fumble in the 24-17 win.
ANALYSIS
Barber averaged just 2.8 yards per carry and did little outside a long gain of 17 yards. He helped put the game away with a 1-yard touchdown plunge in the fourth quarter, giving him three rushing touchdowns in as many weeks. He could have had another score, but he fumbled at the 1-yard line to tarnish a long, methodical drive. Barber has topped 70 rushing yards just three times this season, but he continues to receive touches near the goal line thanks to the team's prolific passing attack. He'll look to keep his scoring streak alive next Sunday against the Saints.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
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.
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.
