Barber rushed 17 times for 44 yards and two touchdowns in the Buccaneers' 28-11 win over the Jaguars on Sunday. He also had a two-point conversion run.

In a game that unfolded in rather surprising fashion overall, Barber fittingly punched in multiple touchdowns for the first time all season. The fourth-year back ended up outpacing backfield mate Ronald Jones by 11 carries overall, with Greg Auman of The Athletic reporting that coach Bruce Arians explained the lopsided division of labor as a function of Arians going with the "hot hand" in the backfield and Jones also having missed a blitz pickup at one point. Despite Barber's surprising success Sunday, the Bucs' backfield remains a week-to-week situation that is averse to fantasy production. Barber will look to build on his strong effort versus the Colts in Week 14.
