Buccaneers' Peyton Barber: Steps up in expanded role Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barber carried 10 times for 47 yards in Sunday's 29-7 win over the Bears.

Barber saw all 16 of his snaps in the second half and made the most of them, posting the second-highest rushing total of his career. The 23-year-old saw five less snaps than backfield mate Charles Sims behind starter Jacquizz Rodgers, but he received eight more carries. However, it's noteworthy that unbalanced distribution came in a game in which the Bucs held a comfortable second-half lead, which eliminated some of the passing-down situations that Sims is often utilized in. Barber is still projected to see a handful of carries for the next two games while Doug Martin finishes serving out his suspension, while also filling a role on special teams.

Buccaneers' Peyton Barber: Solid outing during modest playing time Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barber rushed six times for 23 yards in Thursday's 13-10 preseason loss to the Redskins.

Barber played a modest 16 snaps, but that appeared to be more of a function of the Bucs wanting to see plenty of both Russell Hansbrough and fifth-round pick Jeremy McNichols, who is reportedly on the roster bubble. Barber saw plenty of action throughout the preseason and has a season of game tape under his belt, so he looks to be in relatively solid shape for a spot on the final roster.

Buccaneers' Peyton Barber: Contributes 33 total yards Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barber (undisclosed) rushed five times for six yards and brought in four of seven targets for 27 yards in Saturday's 13-9 preseason loss to the Browns.

The reserve running back once again found a way to make his case for a potential spot on the 53-man roster. Through three exhibitions, Barber has logged 22 carries for 69 yards, with Saturday's receptions serving as his first of the preseason. Barber's overall reliability, familiarity with the offense and ability to play special teams could all tip the scales in his favor when it comes to final cuts.

Buccaneers' Peyton Barber: Doesn't practice Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barber is not taking part in Saturday's practice for an undisclosed reason, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

No particular reason has been given at this time for Barber's lack of participation during Saturday's practice. That said, there's no indication that he's suffered a serious injury. He put together a nice game during Thursday's matchup against the Jaguars, rushing for 42 yards on nine carries, making a case for a roster spot.

Buccaneers' Peyton Barber: Paces Bucs backs in yards Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barber totaled nine rushes for 42 yards in Thursday's 12-8 preseason win over the Jaguars.

Barber made an impressive case for a roster spot with Thursday's effort, one that saw him log carries on six of the Bucs' first seven plays of the second half. After an extensive drive by the Jaguars that consumed over eight minutes, Barber then notched his remaining three rushes on the team's second and final possession of the period. Barber's work in camp practices combined with his production through two exhibitions (17 carries for 63 yards) certainly have him trending in the right direction in his quest to stick on a crowded depth chart. He'll look generate a successful encore performance against the Browns a week from Saturday.
