2020 Fantasy Outlook
Barrett delivered a textbook example of a breakout season - one that absolutely no one saw coming - much to the Buccaneers' delight in 2019. A one-time undrafted free agent who authored four relatively non-descript seasons in Denver to open his career, Barrett was unleashed by defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, who apparently had taken note of the occasional flashes of pass-rushing acumen he displayed during his Broncos days (14 sacks from 2015-18). Given the unprecedented success Barrett enjoyed last season while racking up 19.5 sacks, the linebacker will likely be utilized in a very similar fashion this coming season, which once again should set him up for success on the IDP front. Nevertheless, it's also worth noting Barrett won't catch any offensive coordinators by surprise in 2020, so he projects to face plenty of pass-protection schemes designed specifically around him.

Barrett intends on signing the franchise tag if he and the Buccaneers are unable to work out a long-term deal, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
ANALYSIS
Barrett remains hopeful both parties can reach an agreement on a new contract but now is willing to accept the franchise tag if it comes down to it. Previously, it was reported that he was uncertain about signing it. It sounds look he's come to terms with how negotiations are difficult given the NFL's uncertain financial future in the current sports landscape. The 27-year-old recorded 55 tackles (42 solo), one interception and a career-high 19.5 sacks in his first season with Tampa Bay last year.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2016
2015
The 2014 undrafted free agent saw his first playing time in 2015 and came out of nowhere to rank tied for third on the team with 5.5 sacks and tied for first in forced fumbles with four. He and Shane Ray are listed as backups, but the two will be competing for extra playing time as the team looks to rest veteran DeMarcus Ware. Barrett is a safe bet to be the key beneficiary to any time Ware spends on the bench. He made all six starts that Ware missed in 2015.
Will be used as a depth linebacker, if he can get off the practice squad.
