Kenjon Barner rejoins the Carolina Panthers

The Panthers have signed free agent running back Kenjon Barner to a one-year deal.

Fantasy Impact

Originally a sixth-round selection by Carolina in the 2013 NFL Draft, Barner, 28, spent the past three seasons with the Eagles, where he averaged 4.4 yards-per-carry and caught 19 passes in limited snaps. Barner, who also returns kicks, will replace Fozzy Whittaker as depth behind Christian McCaffrey and C.J. Anderson, but is well off the fantasy radar.

Kenjon Barner scores rushing touchdown Sunday

Kenjon Barner rushed once for a four-yard touchdown and added one reception for 22 yards in Sunday's win over the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact

Barner admitted in an interview on Monday afternoon that he was not initially supposed to receive the carry that resulted in his touchdown, but he stayed in the game after catching a 22-yard pass down the sideline from Carson Wentz after Wentz rushed the offense to the line. Despite the touchdown, Barner only played two offensive snaps on Sunday and is mostly just a kick and punt returner for the Eagles. On Sunday, he served the additional purpose of frustrating the fantasy owners of Blount, Ajayi, and Clement.

Kenjon Barner has little impact on six touches

Kenjon Barner rushed five times for seven yards and added one catch for nine yards in Thursday's win over the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Barner had little impact on offense but almost committed a costly turnover when he muffed a punt, but the Eagles were able to recover the ball. With Wendell Smallwood likely to return for Week 7, Barner's already limited role probably decreases even more.

Kenjon Barner sees five touches Sunday

Kenjon Barner, who was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles after Darren Sproles was lost to a season-ending injury, carried the ball five times for 23 yards in Sunday's win over the Arizona Cardinals. He added 110 yards on three punt returns.

Fantasy Impact

With Wendell Smallwood out with a knee injury, Barner entered the rotation at running back with LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement. However, his biggest impact was as a punt returner, where he totaled 110 yards on three returns. That won't help fantasy owners in most formats, but that is where Barner expects to make his biggest impact.

Kenjon Barner signs with Eagles

ESPN's Field Yates is reporting the Philadelphia Eagles have signed running back Kenjon Barner on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

With Darren Sproles placed on IR with a broken arm and torn ACL, the Eagles had a void at running back, in which they filed with a familiar face. They re-signed Barner, who played for the team in 2016. In a crowded backfield that includes LeGarrette Blount, Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement, Barner's fantasy value is at a minimum upon his return.
