Coming out of the bye week, this is likely our last chance to hope for a workhorse out of this backfield. That's the time you can make dramatic changes if you want to, so here's to hoping. The two split just 12 carries in London and neither of them saw a single target. You'd think an offense that's averaging 28.8 points per game (4th in the NFL) would produce some useful fantasy performances, right? The Titans aren't a great matchup for running backs who aren't involved in the passing game, as they've allowed just 10 rushing touchdowns over the 23 games under Mike Vrabel. They have faced a league-high 61 targets to running backs, which has propelled them to allow the 16th-most fantasy points to running backs. Breaking it down a bit further, they've allowed the 12th-fewest fantasy points on the ground to running backs, but the third-most points through the air. Knowing that Barber has nine targets on the year while Jones has six, this matchup can be a problem for fantasy owners. The fact that opposing running backs have combined for just 19.7 carries per game doesn't bode well for a timeshare. Both of these running backs should be considered middling RB4s with minimal upside and low floors.

Peyton Barber invisible in Week 6

Buccaneers RB Peyton Barber rushed eight times for 28 yards in Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

After scoring three times in four games, Barber was held out of the end zone in Sunday's loss. He's also been held to fewer than 48 yards rushing in three straight outings as well. Barber will come out of his Week 7 bye as a touchdown-needy low-floor flex option against the 49ers.
