Peyton Barber will remain the starter for Week 2

Peyton Barber was announced the starter for Week 2 by head coach Bruce Arians. The head coach went on to say that 'Barber will start with Ronald Jones ready to go. We'll go with the hot hand from there.' (Greg Auman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Barber was not efficient during his Week 1 performance, but it seems that his head coach has his back for the present moment. If you are planning to start Barber, I would look at other options that will play dedicated roles in Week 2, players such as Chris Thompson, Carlos Hyde or even Malcolm Brown. The Bucs' backfield is a mess and Barber has no security for his role.
