Start or Sit (NFC Home Games)
Covering the impact of coronavirus on the sports world
Barber carried the ball 23 times for 111 yards and a touchdown while catching three of five targets for 31 yards in Sunday’s 31-28 overtime win over the Dolphins.
With Josh Jacobs (ankle) sidelined again, it was Barber and not Kenyan Drake who took on the lead role in the Las Vegas backfield, and the 27-year-old responded with his first 100-yard performance since Week 11 of 2018, when he was with Tampa Bay. Barber also punched it in from the one-yard line early in the fourth quarter for his first touchdown of the season. The Raiders will get an extra day to rest and prepare before taking on the Chargers in Week 4 on Monday night, and if Jacobs is recovered by then, Barber likely won’t see many touches despite this big effort.
