Player Outlook
Barber is a free agent at the time of publication, and we'll see if he can land with a new team prior to Week 1. Even if he does get a job, Barber isn't expected to have a prominent role, and he's not worth drafting in most Fantasy leagues. In 2021 with the Raiders, Barber averaged just 4.9 PPR points per game as a reserve behind Josh Jacobs and Kenyan Drake. His best season was 2018 with Tampa Bay when he averaged 9.4 PPR points per game, but he doesn't offer much upside at this point in his career, especially at 28 years old. We don't expect Barber to have much Fantasy value in 2022.

  • Raiders' Peyton Barber: Uninvolved in Week 18

    Barber did not log an offensive snap in Sunday's 35-32 overtime win over the Chargers. Barber's role was limited to special teams in the Week 18 thriller, while starter Josh Jacobs handled a full workload out of the backfield with 26 carries for 132 yards and a touchdown to go along with a pair of receptions. Barber wraps up his 2021 regular season with 55 total carries for 212 yards and two scores in 10 games. He also added 10 catches on 13 targets for 67 receiving yards. Expect the aforementioned Jacobs to maintain his workhorse role in a wild-card matchup against the Bengals on Saturday.

  • Raiders' Peyton Barber: Eight touches in Indy

    Barber rushed for three yards on six carries and caught both of his targets for nine yards in Sunday's 23-20 win over the Colts. Barber struggled to get anything going on the ground Sunday, but he still earned six more touches than fellow backup Jalen Richard despite logging two fewer offensive snaps. Meanwhile, starter Josh Jacobs totaled 80 yards and found the end zone, and he projects to lead the backfield once again versus the Chargers in Week 18.

  • Raiders' Peyton Barber: Runs for TD in win

    Barber rushed for 22 yards and a touchdown on five carries and he caught his only target for no gain in Sunday's 17-13 win over the Broncos. Barber finished Sunday's contest with 22 fewer carries than Josh Jacobs, but he found the end zone early in the third quarter for the Raiders' only rushing score of the game. Barber once again worked ahead of fellow backup Jalen Richard, who picked up nine yards on two touches. Nonetheless, expect Jacobs to retain his workhorse role in Week 17 against the Colts.

  • Raiders' Peyton Barber: Five carries in win

    Barber carried five times for 34 yards and brought in his only target for 12 yards in Monday's 16-14 win over the Browns. Barber operated as the No. 2 running back behind Josh Jacobs, but he played only 13 of the Raider's 69 offensive snaps. Meanwhile, fellow backup Jalen Richard logged 11 snaps in his return from the reserve/COVID-19 list. The near-even split between the two reserve backs limits the potential of both players to make a major fantasy impact while Jacobs operates as the clear-cut No. 1 option while Kenyan Drake (ankle) is out for the season.

  • Raiders' Peyton Barber: Two receptions in loss

    Barber caught two of three targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 48-9 loss to the Chiefs. He also added seven rushing yards on one carry. Barber was relatively uninvolved as the Raiders fell behind by 35 points in the first half of Sunday's tilt, resulting in a pass-heavy game script for quarterback Derek Carr as starting running back Josh Jacobs tallied single-digit rushing attempts. Barber's playing time should remain limited against the Browns in Week 15, and fellow backup Jalen Richard may return from the reserve/COVID-19 list soon.

  • Raiders' Peyton Barber: Logs five offensive snaps Sunday

    Barber caught his only target for two yards in Sunday's 17-15 loss to Washington. He also returned one kickoff for 24 yards. Barber played just five offensive snaps behind starter Josh Jacobs, despite fellow reserve Jalen Richard's placement on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Fellow running back Kenyan Drake is slated to miss the rest of the season with a broken ankle, however, so Barber figures to remain active against Kansas City in Week 14.

  • Raiders' Peyton Barber: Suits up Sunday

    Barber is active for Sunday's game against Washington. Barber is back in uniform Sunday, with Jalen Richard on the reserve/COVID-19 list. However, Barber doesn't seem likely to handle many touches in the Raiders offense unless Josh Jacobs or Kenyan Drake suffer any injury setbacks in Week 13.

  • Raiders' Peyton Barber: Inactive Thursday

    Barber is inactive for Thursday's game against the Cowboys. Barber is the odd man out Thursday, with Jalen Richard back in the mix and slated to handle change-of-pace work behind Josh Jacobs and Kenyan Drake.

  • Raiders' Peyton Barber: One touch in return

    Barber took his only carry for three yards in Sunday's 32-13 loss to the Bengals. Barber began the Raiders' opening drive with a three-yard rush in his first appearance since Week 4, but he did not see the field for the remainder of Sunday's contest despite Jalen Richard's (ribs) inactivity. Regardless of Richard's Week 12 availability in Dallas, Josh Jacobs and Kenyan Drake will continue to dominate touches out of the backfield.

  • Raiders' Peyton Barber: Returns to mix Sunday

    Barber is not among the Raiders' inactives for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Barber will thus re-enter the Raiders' backfield mix with change-of-pace option Jalen Richard (ribs) inactive, but he'll presumably work behind Josh Jacobs and Kenyan Drake in Week 11.

  • Raiders' Peyton Barber: Healthy scratch in Week 10

    Barber (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against Kansas City. Barber will be a healthy scratch for a fifth consecutive game. Josh Jacobs, Kenyan Drake and Jalen Richard will handle the rushing duties in Sunday's primetime matchup.

  • Raiders' Peyton Barber: Healthy scratch again

    Barber (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants. Barber was a healthy scratch for the previous three games heading into the Raiders' Week 8 bye, and that trend will continue Sunday. Josh Jacobs, Kenyan Drake and Jalen Richard will handle the backfield work for Las Vegas.

  • Raiders' Peyton Barber: Inactive Sunday

    Barber is inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles. With Barber having been made a healthy scratch by the Raiders, Josh Jacobs, Kenyan Drake and Jalen Richard will handle the team's running back duties Sunday. Barber is off the fantasy radar unless injuries hit the team's backfield.

  • Raiders' Peyton Barber: Healthy scratch in Week 6

    Barber (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports. Barber had shaken off a turf toe injury that had cost him the Week 5 tilt against the Bears by Wednesday of this past practice week, but he'll still take a seat Sunday. The availability of Josh Jacobs, Kenyan Drake and the recently activated Jalen Richard make Barber expendable against Denver and could serve to do the same in subsequent contests.

  • Raiders' Peyton Barber: Returns in full Wednesday

    Barber (toe) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Rachel Gossen of the Raiders' official site reports. Barber managed just one limited showing last week as he contended with a mild case of turf toe. While Barber was listed as questionable for this past Sunday's game against the Bears, the Raiders ultimately included him on the inactive list. Now that he's back to logging all activity in practice, Barber suddenly is a part of a crowded backfield after the team activated Jalen Richard from injured reserve last week. All of Josh Jacobs, Kenyan Drake, Barber and Richard are the running backs available to the offense, meaning one of Barber or Richard could be candidates for healthy scratches moving forward.

  • Raiders' Peyton Barber: Sitting out Week 5

    Barber (toe) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Bears. It's no surprise Barber is sitting out on a short week after picking up a mild turf toe injury last Monday against the Chargers. While Barber logs the first of what could be a few absences Sunday, the Raiders will ride Josh Jacobs, Kenyan Drake and Jalen Richard out of the backfield.

  • Raiders' Peyton Barber: Listed as questionable for Week 5

    Barber (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears after returning to practice Friday as a limited participant. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network previously suggested that Barber was dealing with a mild case of turf toe that could sideline him for a few weeks, but Barber's return to practice Friday suggests that may not be the case. Even so, he's uncertain to play Sunday, and if active, Barber won't necessarily be a big part of the Las Veags offense. Josh Jacobs doesn't have a Week 5 injury designation, and Kenyan Drake remains on hand in a complementary role.

  • Raiders' Peyton Barber: Dealing with turf toe

    Barber was diagnosed Wednesday with a mild case of turf toe, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. On the plus side, the report notes that Barber didn't fracture his foot, but the running back is still seeking opinions and undergoing additional tests to determine a course of action and timetable for his recovery. For now, Barber should be viewed as questionable, at best, for Sunday's game against the Bears, with Rapoport suggesting that the 27-year-old may end up missing a few weeks. If that's the case, Josh Jacobs would be in line to handle the bulk of the Raiders' early down work while Kenyan Drake serves as a complementary presence out of the backfield.

  • Raiders' Peyton Barber: Less work possible Monday

    Barber may have a reduced workload in Monday's road game against the Chargers with Josh Jacobs (ankle) active. With Jacobs available for the first time since Week 1, it remains to be seen how the backfield will break down Monday, but Barber could split early down reps with Jacobs while Kenyan Drake retains much of the change-of-pace work. Still, Barber remains active, so he may earn enough snaps to be a viable option versus a Chargers defense that has allowed an NFL-worst 5.5 yards per carry to running backs this season.

  • Raiders' Peyton Barber: Runs roughshod over Dolphins

    Barber carried the ball 23 times for 111 yards and a touchdown while catching three of five targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 31-28 overtime win over the Dolphins. With Josh Jacobs (ankle) sidelined again, it was Barber and not Kenyan Drake who took on the lead role in the Las Vegas backfield, and the 27-year-old responded with his first 100-yard performance since Week 11 of 2018, when he was with Tampa Bay. Barber also punched it in from the one-yard line early in the fourth quarter for his first touchdown of the season. The Raiders will get an extra day to rest and prepare before taking on the Chargers in Week 4 on Monday night, and if Jacobs is recovered by then, Barber likely won't see many touches despite this big effort.
