BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 36% of Yahoo! Leagues

ANALYSIS: With Doug Martin healthy and starting, it looked like the Peyton Barber hype train was pulling back into the station, especially after Martin found the end zone early in Week 14. But aside from that score, Martin was ineffective, finishing with 10 carries for just 26 yards. Barber saw the majority of the carries in the second half, rushing for 58 yards on 12 carries.

It's no guarantee that Tampa Bay's move to Barber in the second half is a guarantee that the team officially moves on to Barber at running back, but it would be a bad move by the Buccaneers to continue trusting Doug Martin at this point, especially when Barber has looked like the better back the past two weeks. Barber's the only Tampa Bay running back with a 100-yard game this season.

Tampa plays the Falcons this week, who were able to hold Mark Ingram in check during Week 14, but some of that can be explained away due to the Saints other running back Alvin Kamara missing all but one drive due to a concussion and New Orleans having to adjust their offensive scheme. In Week 13, Minnesota running backs Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon combined for 100-yards against Atlanta. This run defense is exploitable and Barber is a good flex play provided he receives the bulk of the carries. Right now, that seems like the best bet to make.
