RB - FA
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Kenjon Barner is active for Monday Night Football against the Los Angeles Rams.
Kenjon Barner is back from suspension and has been elevated from the practice squad for Monday night's contest. Barner plays on special teams and took Ke'Shawn Vaughn's spot on the active roster. Barner was also called up in Week 3 and Week 4. He saw snaps primarily in the return game, notching one kick return and four offensive snaps in Week 4. He may see a snap or two on offense but will not make a fantasy impact.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Kenjon Barner has been suspended for four games for violating the NFL Policy on Performance-Enhancing Substances.
Barner received one target against the Chargers in Week 4, but he'll miss the next four games due to violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances. Barner is not fantasy-relevant, and the Bucs will continue to roll with Ronald Jones, Leonard Fournette, and rookie Ke'Shawn Vaughn going forward.
Ravens announce they have signed RB/PR Kenjon Barner after bringing him in for a visit over the weekend.
The 31-year-old running back played in 14 games for the Falcons in 2019, specializing in punt and kick returns. Although rookie receiver James Proche is slated to begin the year as the Ravens' top returner, Barner certainly adds some depth and experience behind him after De'Anthony Thomas decided to opt out. Barner has averaged 7.7 yards per punt return and 23.4 yards per kickoff return over the course of his seven-year career.
Kenjon Barner has scheduled a visit with the Baltimore Ravens. Barner spent most of last season with the Atlanta Falcons as the punt returner and kick returner.
Barner, who is listed as a running back, could come in and replace punt and kick returner De'Anthony Thomas, who has opted out for the 2020 season. Barner was effective as a returner last season, and could be good in that role for the Ravens. Outside of that, Barner would have next to no fantasy value as the Ravens already have a very crowded backfield.
Falcons RB Kenjon Barner caught both of his targets for eight yards in Sunday's Week 12 loss to Tampa Bay.
Even with Devonta Freeman sidelined and Brian Hill and Qadree Ollison struggling to run the ball, Barner is not getting the opportunity to succeed, making him fantasy irrelevant. He will remain that way next week against the Saints.
