Barron recorded five tackles, an interception and a pass defensed during Sunday's 33-7 win over Houston.
Barron continues to post strong fantasy numbers for owners and checks out as a go-to option in most settings. He's now recorded 62 tackles (55 solo), a sack and three interceptions through the past eight games. The 28-year-old linebacker offers a high-floor, high-ceiling combo, and it helps that the Los Angeles offense is forcing opposing teams into predictable game scripts by jumping out to sizable leads.
Barron played 31 of 49 defensive snaps and recorded a solo tackle, an interception and a pass defensed during Sunday's 33-0 win over Arizona.
It was a thumb injury that limited Barron's practice repetitions this week, but once again, he turned in another strong showing Sunday. Last week, it was a knee injury, so Los Angeles' Week 8 bye is coming at a good time for the linebacker. Barron has found a way to put fantasy points on the board in each of the past six games with 49 tackles (43 solo), a sack, two interceptions, two passes defensed and a fumble recovery. He continues to provide excellent numbers for IDP settings.
Barron was unable to practice Wednesday and Thursday, but a limited session during Friday's practice foreshadowed optimism regarding his status for Sunday. He's slated to start at inside linebacker next to Alec Ogletree, while Bryce Hager and Cory Littleton could see additional snaps if Barron were to suffer any sort of setback.
Barron (thumb) was limited in Friday's practice and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic reports.
Barron failed to practice both Wednesday and Thursday, so even putting in limited work during Friday's session gives him an opportunity to see the field Sunday. Barron will likely be a game-time decision for the London tilt against the Cardinals.
Barron (thumb) didn't practice Thursday, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Barron has made up for a one-tackle showing against the Colts in the season opener, totaling 48 tackles (42 solo), one sack and one interception over the last five games. With a thumb injury keeping him out of practice the past two days, there is some murkiness about his odds to suit up Sunday against the Cardinals in London. As such, his status should be watched closely to ensure his IDP viability for Week 7.
