Marion Barber Fantasy Projection: Barber Projected For Minimal Impact Vs. Seahawks

All fantasy owners can do is ask for their players to get touches, and those that plucked Marion Barber off the waiver wire were rewarded in Week 14 when he ran for 108 yards and a touchdown on 27 carries vs. the Denver Broncos. But the Chicago Bears will be facing a much stiffer run defense this week in the Seattle Seahawks, and the projection for Barber is a safe bit under his production from last week.

numberFire.com has Barber projected for 66 total yards with a 40% chance of scoring a touchdown, which puts him as the No. 20 overall running back for the week. With the running back position across the NFL as thin as it is, Barber is still likely to get many looks at RB2 and flex spots, but don't expect a big game from the ex-Cowboy.
