Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber to Start on Sunday

December 3rd, 2017

In the absence of running back Doug Martin, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will turn towards Peyton Barber in his place on Sunday. An hour before the game, Tampa Bay announced Barber would draw the start.

Barber is a risky DFS play but will offer a chance at a strong return on investment this week. Barber will face a Green Bay Packers defense that started off the season stout against the run but injuries have made things much easier for the opposing running game. Barber doesn't offer significant yardage upside, but could reach a ceiling of 40-plus yards and a touchdown.
