Peyton Barber will remain the Buccaneers starting running back for Week 2

Despite a poor outing in Week 1, it seems Bruce Arians and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are committed to running back Peyton Barber, who will yet again start for them in Week 2. Barber recorded 33 yards on eight carries and two catches for 12 yards in Week 1.

Fantasy Impact

The Buccaneers’ backfield is a mess. Barber will “remain the starter” despite being out snapped by running back Dare Ogunbowale who had four carries for 33 yards. So Barber’s production on half the carries. If you really want to be involved in it, then you’re a sadistic human being and I can’t help you. The healthy thing to do is to cut ties and look elsewhere for a starting running back (Malcolm Brown and Chris Thompson to name a few).
