Barron has registered 36 tackles (31 solo), two interceptions and three pass defenses through the past four games. And for the season, Barron's 33 solo tackles ranks second in the league among nominal defensive backs, though he may only have linebacker eligibility in some leagues. He continues to be a strong weekly fantasy option.
Barron registered seven solo tackles and intercepted a pass during Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Barron's interception came in the fourth quarter after the Rams scored the game-winning touchdown and had major implications on the outcome. He also picked off a pass in the Week 3 tilt against the Buccaneers. Barron has started each game of the season and played every snap Sunday. His 26 tackles (22 solo) and two interceptions over the past three games are solid IDP returns.
Barron was quiet in Week 1, but he was all over the field in the Rams upset win over the Seahawks. He now has 13 tackles and three passes defended on the season. He was a top-10 linebacker in tackles per game from Week 7 on in 2015.
Barron (undisclosed) was unlisted on the Rams' injury report Thursday, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports.
Barron logged a DNP in the second game of exhibition season but returned in the third, picking up his only three tackles of the preseason. The Rams trot out a six-man defensive backfield in which he serves as a pseudo linebacker. Consequently, the 100-tackle threshold is certainly in play for the second season in a row.
Barron is a key player for the Rams at linebacker, and his extended absence could be of some concern if it continues much longer. Without the team releasing details on his injury it's impossible to give him a timetable to return, and he should be considered day-to-day until more information is available. Jabriel Washington has been seeing time with the first-team defense during Barron's absence.
