More Fantasy News
Ahead of Jones so far
Barber has an early edge for the starting job over Ronald Jones, Rick Stroud of The Tampa Bay Times reports. "Peyton is our starter," Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter said Monday. "We're definitely going to use Ronald Jones and take advantage of what he's going to do. We do have the two veteran backs behind him. Again, we've got three more preseason games. Let's just let it sort out a little more."
Solid in exhibition debut
Barber rushed four times for 21 yards and a touchdown and secured both of his targets for minus-1 yard in the Buccaneers' 26-24 preseason win over the Dolphins on Thursday.
Checks into camp slimmer
Barber, who played as high as 238 pounds last season, checked into camp at 225 pounds and has been noticeably quicker, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. "I felt that was one thing I needed to mature on was really taking my weight serious," he said. "It wasn't a lot harder than the past couple of years, but I worked out differently."
Still expected to have sizable role in '18
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."
