With both Josh Allen (elbow) and Derek Anderson (concussion) already ruled out, Barkley will leap Nathan Peterman on the depth chart after the latter's career-long struggles continued in the 41-9 loss to the Bears in Week 9. Barkley, who will make his first NFL start since 2016, posted an unsightly 8:14 TD:INT while completing under 60 percent of his passes in seven games for the Bears that season. Even in the deepest of leagues, Barkley is makes for a difficult fantasy play given his lack of prior NFL success and dearth of weapons.
