FantasyPros
The Bucs are suggesting Barber will be their starter to open up the season, but even if it is true, Ronald Jones would likely take over within a few weeks. Barber's ceiling is limited to a flex play even while he is the starter.The Lions backfield is loaded with several decent backs who are all about on the same level. It will be tough for most of them to find touches except for Riddick who has his job locked in. Expect much of the same, making him a solid depth piece to fill in during bye weeks and injuries.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
Peyton Barber is 100% the lead back right now. Ronald Jones II is the two. RoJo is definitely faster, but Barber looks much better in receiving game and overall.  
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Following Week 12's unlikely seven-yard, two-TD line, Barber emerged from the shadows to produce 418 total yards in five games as Tampa Bay's featured back. His 57 % success rate tied Ezekiel Elliott for second among 47 qualified rushers, and he has lost weight in hopes of gaining speed. Reportedly Tampa Bay's starter over first-round pick Ronald Jones, Barber still possesses an ADP outside the top-50 RBs.The only RB with 50+ catches in each of the last three seasons, Riddick has maintained PPR value (RB 18, 25, and 26) despite compiling 776 combined rushing yards on 219 carries. Drafters are nevertheless nonplussed with a steady hand who has not scored more than six TDs in a single season or hit the 100-yard plateau since Oct. 20, 2016. Kerryon Johnson's three-down abilities caps Riddick's ceiling, but he's a useful low-floor PPR bench pick.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Some are still expecting Barber to start for the Bucs, eh? When you draft a running back at the top of the second-round, call me skeptical. Whether or not you like it, draft stock matters. Barber is a formerly undrafted free agent who the Bucs let sit on the bench while Doug Martin and Charles Sims combined for 1,071 yards on 354 carries over the last two years. That amounts to just 3.03 yards per carry. While Barber played better, they obviously felt the need to invest in Ronald Jones. I'd be shocked if Barber totaled any more than 6-10 touches per game. Possibly one of the hardest players to predict in fantasy football, as Riddick has been one of the more consistent RB3/RB4's in the game the last few years, but the scenery has changed quite a bit in Detroit.
Staff Rankings
QB List
 In the past, Riddick has been a worthwhile flex option in PPR leagues but not worth much in standard leagues. Now, with the addition of Kerryon Johnson alongside LeGarrette Blount, Riddick's value may decrease even more. Still, he's a good pass-catching running back, so he might still get some work.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Barber will be part of a committee that will likely be led by Ronald Jones. The Bucs' offense should be better this season, and if Barber wins goal-line work, he could have decent value.Riddick will continue to be a PPR fantasy option, as he has a clear path to the majority of running back targets this season with Blount and Johnson both not proficient as receivers.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
 Riddick has more value in PPR formats but even there it's tough to project him too high given all the bodies in DET now
